Lawrence-based builder brings extensive experience in the sustainable building techniques and energy efficient building envelope that are at the heart of post and beam construction
Lawrence, Massachusetts - Award-winning, Lawrence, Massachusetts-based , custom home builderHowell Custom Building Group has been appointed an Authorized Independent Representative of Timberpeg®, a designer and fabricator of timber frame homes. Howell serves as the exclusive resource for expertise in TIMBERPEG® timber framing --from design through construction- for homeowners in Essex County. Howell Custom Building Group creates fine home additions, home renovations and custom new homes north of Boston. Whether timber framed or stick-built, every home built by Howell is constructed with the same meticulous planning that ensures consistently spectacular results, time and time again. The company was most recently awarded the 2009 Builders Association of Greater Boston’s prestigious PRISM award for building the region’s “Best Home over 6000 Square Feet”, a combination stick and timber frame vacation home in Maine.
Howell Custom Building Group was founded in 1997 by husband and wife team, Stephen and Susan Howell. Their vision was to utilize their professional backgrounds in engineering, project management, residential construction, and marketing to create a consistently great new home construction and home remodeling experience for homeowners on the North Shore of Massachusetts. Having built, and often designed, dozens of timber frame projects on their own, Howell Custom Building Group was a natural fit to represent a company like Timberpeg.
“Both aesthetically and functionally, timber frames are just outstanding homes and we love building them,” explains Steve Howell. “So when Timberpeg, the Artisans of Post and Beam approached us to serve as their authorized representative, we saw it as an effective way to reach more of the timber frame market who may not already be familiar with our work.”
Richard Neroni, President and COO of Timberpeg® agrees that the partnership is a win-win.“We are proud to have a company as established and respected as Howell Custom Building Group representing our product north of Boston,” he says. “Steve Howell and his staff have long provided the service and the high-quality finished product that all Timberpeg® customers expect.”
To kick off the partnership, Howell Custom Building Group will be hosting an open house at a Timberpeg® home in Boxford, Massachusetts on October 10, 2010. For more information, visitwww.howellcustombuild.com or call Susan Howell at (978)989-9440.
