Default island builders

Looking for recommendations for companies that will build on islands these days. Stick built, 1700sqft in Gilford. Obviously someone that can handle the logistics of it. We can certainly barge materials if someone doesn't have their own, but I need someone that can handle getting back and forth and preferably has done it before.

There is a possibility depending on price that we decide to go log, in that case someone that does log as well? Not all have experience with log.

I know the usuals like Island Services, Island Support and Winnipesaukee Islands and am speaking with them.

Any suggestions?

Default Vance Sedlar

We used Vance Sedlar of Sedlari Construction to due our dormer construction last season and I would highly recommend him. He has a place on Rattlesnake , Broads side and has barges and is very used to island construction issues, as are his subs.

He has also dealt with Local Building Inspectors quite a bit.

His number is 603-620-6217

If I were doing it again, I'd seriously consider prefab or modular, not to be confused with manufactured. A crew can carry and install wall sections very quickly compared to the same crew carrying individual pieces of 2x6, then cutting, nailing, etc. Depending on your exposure, the fewer barge trips and the less time the barge has to spend at your dock, the better. Don't recall the name, but I recall a company in Walpole NH being featured on This Old House a couple of years ago. Magnificent house, wall sections assembled on site. Down the street from me, a house replacement was done after a fire with 4 modules. installed by crane, for a two story house.

Tedd Benson https://bensonwood.com. Probably the foremost timber frame builder in the US. He built a home here on Barndoor Island. Beautiful. Expensive!
