I'm a custom Builder in Moultonborough, I'd like to take a look at it.
Sounds interesting.
Several forum members are familiar with my work.

https://www.belletetes.com/visit-a-b-barns/ ..... you probably already know about A&B Barns on Rt 25 in M-boro



The Miracle Farms at the Moulton Farm in M-boro on Rt 25 has some already built sheds that are a small barn and look really well constructed.

if you're planning this for this year reality is you wont find a good builder this year. if your planning for next year your chances are much better. Just speaking from an owner that has two full time crews going now and we cant keep up. been like this the past 5 years. best wishes. i live in Moultonborough and could possibly help for 2020.

My clients have very good luck with Bensonwood homes out of Walpole. They won a multitude of national awards. Check them out!

Tend to agree with Sky's. Good builders are out straight now with all they can handle.

Are you seeking carpenters or a general contractor?

He says he's looking for a Builder professor.

A builder is someone that typically came up in the trades as a carpenter that has a full understanding of the entire building process from the lay of the land the permitting, the foundation, drainage, all of the carpentry, roofing ect.

A builder is well acquainted with all of the other trades and can guide them through their work so that the client can get what they are looking for.

The builder is an avocate for the client making sure everything is going smoothly and in the right order.

He makes sure all materials are ordered on time and stored properly and not in other trades way.

The builder should be the first one hired and the last one to put on the finishing touch.

A builder is not a GC and typically works on a cost plus or time and materials bases, and is always the best value for a homeowner.

Default Builder vs Project Mgr.

You can also hire a project manager. Typically manage the entire project of building a home, from excavating to the final interior details. Unlike a builder who does the actual construction, a project manager spends more time with RBC, quality of materials, assessment of building practice, evaluating subcontractors etc. They typically work with large contractors and architect offices. They give you more bang for the buck, and surprisingly the project does not any more than using a builder! Often results in approval of HOW warrantees more than a year! (The state has a statute that all new homes built must be warranted for a year.) I had homes built with 10 year warrantees!
Just a clarification.
