BRIBURN – Architecture for Life
Portland Maine, ME Home Extension Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 1, 2015
Because of their commitment to energy efficiency, we selected Briburn Architecture to design our home. Our small lot in the heart of the city had a number of restrictions to consider. We started the process of the design by bringing our wish list of interior spaces and rooms as well as photos (from Houzz) of modern and low maintenance exteriors and materials. The architect, Harry Hepburn, was our main contact as we worked as a team to design the house sited to maximize views, solar gain, budget, etc. Harry was a delight to work with and we are thrilled with the final design. As we are currently obtaining contractor bids, Briburn has been very helpful in educating us and the contractors with building methods and materials used. They continue to be an excellent resource, backed with experience and research as needed. We have enjoyed the process and highly recommend them as easy to work with, collaborative and competent.

We highly recommend architect Bruce Butler of By Design. He has been wonderful to work with, and we are delighted with our new home. We had never built a house before--nor did we think it was in the cards for us to do so--so we were complete novices when we began. Bruce was very patient with our lack of knowledge and did an excellent job of educating us on the process. Based on information he gathered from us, he presented us with an initial plan that matched our vision! After that, our discussions with him were primarily regarding materials and finishes. Our dealings with Bruce were done from a distance as we lived a half-dozen states away from our building site. Regardless of this, the process was seamless. Bruce also effectively acted on our behalf with the town Planning Board and Code Enforcement Officer. Without making a single change, they signed off on our plans the very night he presented them. He also participated in our meetings with prospective builders and made field trips to see their work. Additionally, he was very proactive on pursuing cost- and energy-saving options. We interviewed other architects before selecting Bruce. After the fact, one of the other firms asked us whom we selected. We told them and they said, "Bruce does great work, I think you'll be in good hands." There’s no question that we were!

From start to finish a great experience with a terrific result. Seth and his crew impressed us daily with their responsiveness, efficiency, and excellent work. In an old house there are always challenges, what you might expect and what you don’t, and every solution they came up with made the overall project even better. It was a lot to manage, especially during a year with shortages of building materials and subcontractors booked out for months. Yet SGK made everything come together. This is a talented and professional group, not to mention a pleasure to have around. Their respect for us, our home, and our wishes would assure them as our first choice for another job.
Southern Maine Remodeling, Inc.
Portland Maine, ME Home Extension Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 22, 2014
We have worked with Southern Maine Remolding's owner Travis Blake for previous jobs. When we decided to renovate our home to accomodate a studio space, we did not hesitate to contact Mr. Blake to bid on the job. We took an existing space above the garage and turned it into a studio space. The entryway features a 1 1/2 story book wall with storage space under the stairs as well as a custom steel railing. A mudroom was added with cubbies and a flip up bench for additional storage. An extra room was added behind the expanded entryway for guests, featuring a wood stove and barn door for guest privacy when needed. We took down a first floor bedroom wall to expand the kitchen and dining room space (and the mudroom). Posts and beams were added to create an open concept throughout the first floor. The central wall separating the kitchen from the living room was changed to expand the width of the kitchen, making room for an island. Hardwood flooring was laid throughout the first floor as well as in the studio, except in the entryway and mudroom where tile was placed. The first floor bathroom was updated, removing one closet and updating the other, while adding a pocket door. The stairs were also switched to hardwood flooring as well as the upstairs hallway. The master bedroom was dormered due to previous window placements, per code, which allowed space for a new walk in closet. The scope of the project was huge. We chose to stay in the house throughout the renovations, which made things slightly more difficult for the crew, and surely added to time it took to complete the job, through no fault of SMR. With young children safety is always a huge concern of mine. The entire crew was amazing to work with and always considerate of our family and our personal space. The subcontractors SMR works with, were equally considerate. We would not hesitate to contact Mr. Blake for future work, and have not hesitated to already recommend him to local friends looking for a contractor.

Maguire remodeled our 1900 home in Cape Elizabeth and rebuilt our lakeside cabin in Bridgton. Their teams were professional, the work was impeccable, and everything was completed on time and within the estimated budgets. The detail work they did on some of the railings and trim was ingenious. As icing on the cake, the neighbors had only positive things to say about their interactions with Maguire's team.
Vail General Contracting Inc.
Portland Maine, ME Home Extension Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 1, 2015
Bob Vail is a master Craftsman and his crew is just as exacting and demanding as he is. Our project involved pushing out our kitchen foundation 6ft and rearranging the rooms on the first floor to meet an expanded and updated kitchen. Walls were torn down and new walls were put in place, new windows and doors and a new outside deck also were part of a project that included an entire renovation of a tired old kitchen. Bob consulted and worked with us alongside an architect, kitchen expert and electrician in order to help us select exactly what we wanted, at times he would advocate for us when we met with some unprofessional incidents. Most importantly, Bob was able to flex with some changing demands during the project while still maintaining the integrity of the original plan. Superior finish carpentry highlights surround the new project and bring continued enjoyment as we use our new kitchen and entertain more often than ever before.

Lauren redesigned our old farm house to include an amazing combination of historic charm fused with modern updates. She was consistently diligent, professional and supportive throughout the process. Lauren made design recommendations that considered the way we live and how we wanted to enjoy our home. We talk regularly about how grateful we are to have had someone who took the time to understand our vision and incorporate that with her own expertise and experience. I would highly recommend Reiter Architecture & Design and would not hesitate to use Lauren again for future projects.
Arcadia Kitchen and Bath

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 24, 2022
This was my first-ever bathroom remodel. The finished project is clean, cohesive and stylish, without being too trendy. The design guidance from Arcadia was excellent and all my questions were answered promptly. In pandemic times, with supply issues, it was so helpful to have the Arcadia team track down missing/late items or suggest replacements. The process was worry free and the results are just what I hoped for.

Lake Living Consultants
Portland Maine, ME Home Extension Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 16, 2017
In 2015, Lake Living Consultants made my lifetime dream come true - a home built on my family property in Shapleigh, Maine. Tucked in the corner of a field provides the perfect setting to watch wildlife of all kinds, stars at night and catch the breeze as it blows through our open living space! From the first meeting to our last, Tyler and Scott provided wonderful services. From Scott's gift with design to Tyler's natural talent with color and everything that looks great, we were more than pleased. All permits and inspections were done by them which made for a smooth process. The father and son team took a great interest in the project from the start as was evident in deciding the perfect placement of the building. Their attention to detail, use of the best sub contractors and materials made for a great experience! I was particularly impressed with how efficient Tyler was in returning calls, always there to answer a question and help make decisions on everything! They were very flexible in allowing us to interject ideas as we went through the building process. It was wonderful to watch Tyler, whom I've known since he was a little boy, take the lead in the building of our home in such a professional, caring manner. If you want a well built home, choosing Lake Living Consultants will provide you with a wonderful experience! Ty, As I wrote these words, I found myself frustrated because I can't make the words express what a wonderful job you did last year! I will never be able to thank you enough for all your expert help! - Jane and Bob Kirton, Shapleigh, Maine
