The answers to those questions and many more are below. We’ve said this many times — we were lucky to work with a great group of trades on this project and if their name is below, we’d be comfortable recommending them.
For a couple of these folks, we’ve linked back to posts about them or their work. You’ll also see a few links on the right hand nav.
We’ll also follow-up with a list of materials, paint colors, etc. Because that’s the second question we’re asked…
Architect: Rob Whitten with help from Will Fellis. Here are a few posts relating to the design process.
General Contractor: John Rousseau. John could be in nearly every post, but this is our favorite.
Decorator/Color Strategist/Spiritual Guide: Krista Stokes. A few design related posts.
Framing: KC Construction out of Lewiston. Kyle, Pete, Nick, Eddie & Mikey.
Site Work: Blackstone Excavating. Russell and Matt should be your first and last request. Be prepared to use the word “meticulous.”
Tiling: Distinctive Tile. Ask for Larry. And then ask for Rob.
Kitchen & Pantry Cabinets: Greg Soper of North Yarmouth Woodworking. Those beautiful pantry doors that everyone raves about? Greg built those. Ditto with the amazing kitchen.
Office & Bathroom Cabinets: Ben Susla
Plumbing: Jon A. Harmer from New Gloucester with able help from Levi.
Electrical: Josh Underhill of Electrical Connections. Josh deserves extra credit for not rolling his eyes at the person who asked for 24 CAT6 internet drops around the house.
Masonry: Sam Miller. Sam and his two assistants built the fireplace and the awesome, awesome patio.
Flooring: Fat Andy’s. One of our friends who is also designing a new home took one look at our floors, went back to her architect and said “I need Red Birch flooring.”
Painting: Brendan, Randy & crew from Augustine Interiors.
Geothermal : Dave Leonard of Evergreen Geothermal. Also wins the award for the first guy to drive off our driveway.
Landscaping: Andersen Landscaping. Need grass in November? Call these guys.
We’re sure we’re missing some folks, but this is a heckuva place to start.
