Housewright Company The
From the age of fourteen, I spent all my high-school summers working for my dad. His construction company, R.J. Doiron Construction, filled the important needs of growing families who wanted to expand their post-war capes with shed dormers, and their ’60s ranches with second levels. The work was hard, hot, and long—but it toughened me up and taught me how to build and develop a good work ethic. I will always be grateful for the experience. With all my dad’s lessons under my tool belt, I sailed through vocational high school carpentry on a breeze and graduated at the head of my class. Continuing to work with my dad’s company, I fine-tuned my skills and expanded my knowledge when we worked on some beautiful older homes. At about the same time that my dad took early retirement I began my career in the field of high end building on the North Shore of Boston’s golden coast. I worked successfully for several companies, learning as much as I could from each, but there came a time when I felt that I really wanted to do things my way. On April 1, 1997, I established Michael Doiron Housewright. Since that day, our company has grown steadily. With each job we complete, our excellent reputation grows and our list of satisfied customers gets longer. Two years before I started M.D.H., my wife and I had bought a circa-1750 Cape Cod house. It was in such bad shape that most people considered it a tear-down (my dad offered us some matches). After I removed the many layers of drywall, acoustical ceiling tiles, linoleum, and hollow core doors I found that the bones and even some trim, flooring and plaster could be saved, restored, duplicated, and added to. All my work caught the eye of a local architect who recommended me for the high-profile restoration of a first-period saltbox on Argilla Road in Ipswich. I completed the project and was pleased and proud to win the "Mary Connelly Preservation Award". I even appeared on This Old House television show and in an article in their magazine! This project was the jumping-off point to countless more challenging, fun, and rewarding projects. Over the years we have built many major renovations, design/build homes, additions, garages, and barns. The first twenty years in business left me with a lot to be proud of and I look forward to another twenty years of success. Some say I make it look easy, and some days it is. On the days that it isn’t, we learn something new. I hope you enjoy the valuable services we offer.
