5 years later we happily chose Steve to build a second home for us on Nantucket. To be honest, we never thought about going with anyone else after our first experience where Steve built a home for us in Squam. This project was more complicated as it involved tearing half of a house down and moving the other half to the front of the property as a cottage plus a 5br home and 2 car garage. Once again, Steve provided a top notch foreman in Chad and very strong subs - especially our framer Chamba. The experience was again very fair and the work was outstanding. Communication is great and surprises don’t happen. I’d like to think that the ultimate vote of confidence is that we didn’t interview builders for our second time around - it was clear we would choose Cheney - and we would again! Thank you to the team for a great home in Surfside. Tom & Linda
We had a great experience with Cheney brothers. Our first project was 2010-2011. Steve and the team got the project done on time and on budget. They were great at following up, paying attention to detail and communicating with us throughout the project. In 2013 we went back to them for another project and were not disappointed. We've done projects in Boston and Nantucket and this was by far the best experience we've ever had with a builder. They are without a doubt one of the best builders on Nantucket.
Very easy to work with throughout the whole process. Top quality workmanship throughout. No surprises along the way. Would highly recommend.
Cheney Brothers did a fantastic job renovating our house. They were presented with a very tight timeframe and came in on time and under budget.

I have worked with Cheney Brothers closely for years now, and am always astounded at how professional, punctual, and easy to work with they are. They have come in ahead of schedule by a month or two on several occasions, but in all cases they have stayed in close contact and reliably managed the expectations of all involved. I have, and will continue to recommend them highly for all aspects of construction, whether renovating or building new
The entire Cheney Brothers Builders group proved themselves to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and superiorly skilled at delivering high quality products and services in spite of aggressive deadlines. I would recommend them to friends and family and we plan on calling upon them again for our next phase of house building.
Following a competitive bidding process, my wife and I hired Cheney Brothers to build our vacation home in Nantucket. We had previously built four homes so we were somewhat experienced with this type of project. It was a large project involving an architecturally designed four bedroom home and a detached garage with an efficiency apartment on the second floor. To sum up our experience, Steve Cheney and Cheney Brothers exceeded our expectations in every respect. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding. For example, our house had extensive interior woodwork and built ins required., and all was done with outstanding quality. We were even impressed with the quality of house framing. Steve kept everything on track even though the schedule was somewhat aggressive. He worked well in selecting and managing all the subcontractors ensuring the quality of their work while staying on budget. He worked seamlessly with our architects and interior designer and they performed like a very cohesive team to assure the success of the project. Steve was a very effective communicator including being a good listener. We touched base at least once a week during the year long project and he helped our review by sending pictures every week. We only felt the need to visit the site three times during this year long effort because of his effective communication and our confidence in his management of the project. After we moved in, Steve continued to cheek in and does so to this day. Any follow up work or small defects have been handled efficiently and with a good sense of urgency. Overall, Steve and his team displayed a great sense of pride in our project, and acted as if they were building this home for themselves. Their attitude made all the difference.
