Sophisticated Farmhouse Weston Manor – Weston, Massachusetts
The convenient yet tucked-away locale on a winding road crowned by the hilltop setting of this former 1940s Cape Cod style home was a location that the homeowners were not willing to give up. Raising the charming, read “small”, outdated, existing home was the answer to preserving their dream backdrop while constructing their dream home. Sophisticated Modern-Farmhouse in the grandest of style defined by vertical architecture, soaring ceilings and fine finish woodwork are just some of the details creating character, history and permanence, as if the home has been there for 100+ years.
We vividly recall our first meeting with Shawn Cayer from Windhill Builders, when we discussed our building project. Friendly, professional, organized, and fully informed with the knowledge of a building expert, Shawn straightforwardly and thoroughly answered each and every one of our questions. He engendered our trust and confidence almost right away. After that initial discussion, we knew that Windhill Builders would be the right choice to bring our architect's vision and plans (Cummings Architects) into the reality of our new dream home.
We cannot adequately express our appreciation for Kevin O'Connor, the Windhill construction manager who shepherded our building project from start to finish. Kevin was simply fabulous to work with. Always extremely reliable, communicative, and organized, Kevin truly made the building process so much easier for us. There were often daily texts, phone calls, and meetings, each helping us to move the project along. He inspired confidence and we always felt things were in good hands. But along the way, we also got to know Kevin on a more personal level and that made our interactions even better. Kevin always helped us keep things in perspective, and we also enjoyed his fabulous sense of humor. It is not uncommon to hear about issues with sub-contractors, but our experience with ALL of the Windhill Builder subs was terrific. We were extremely pleased with the high quality work they performed -- from those who excavated and poured the foundation, to those who framed the house, insulated, painted, implemented the electrical plan, created the custom built-ins and cabinetry, installed the flooring, AV systems and alarms --- they were all pleasant, professional, friendly and terrific at their jobs. Windhill also provided wonderful inside administrative support. Billing and accounting was always clearly spelled out and specified.
Any questions we had were always promptly answered, and we knew that Jessica was there ready to help with anything we needed. She always communicated the same high level of enthusiasm for the project and she played a crucial role in the success of the project. When we saw her in person, there was always a welcoming smile to greet us and a hand extended to help. Our beautiful new home is everything we hoped for, reflecting the inspiration of Mat Cummings and his team at Cummings Architects and the "make it happen" team of talented, professional team of builders at Windhill Builders.
