At Build, we spend an inordinate amount of time observing houses. The transformation of styles from generations past is our living reference library. These details allow us to develop thoughtful solutions to your old house concerns and to also create a nostalgic look and feel to your new build house. Hence our tagline, Traditional & Modern Heritage Builders.
Why does Build care so much about getting these details correct? Because we love your house as much as you do. Maintaining its unique authenticity, restoring or retaining its character, the same details that drew you to it the day you first saw it, is what we love to do.
We often see lovely houses, obviously owned by people who care as much as we do. We will celebrate these houses on our blog each week. These houses aren't the biggest on the block, and are not shrines to the garage, but they have unique character and stand true to their history.
