You have many choices in contractors to build your home. What makes an OSB home different?


Old School Builders offers the perfect combination of tradition and innovation in our method and our philosophy. Our custom homes create a distinctive legacy for future generations to cherish. You can order a leatherbound Old School Builder's portfolio book on our partner's site to see our work up close. Even better, we can take you on a tour of our distinctive homes.

We are your Total Design-Build Solution.

We design and build your custom timber frame from the initial concept to the finished dream home. Old School Builders will manage all aspects of your project, including site work, electrical, plumbing, heating, insulation, roofing, siding, masonry, flooring, smithing, and finish work.


We are a Sound Investment.


We are confident that our custom timber frame homes will gain and sustain value over time. We build each house with the highest quality materials and methods backed up by our Old School Builders warranty. Contact local realtors to find great properties to build your home.


We offer a Unique Building Experience.

We can customize every project to suit your needs and tastes. We encourage your interaction and participation. Our flexible and inviting business atmosphere allows for a creative and stimulating building process to satisfy your imagination.



We are Dedicated to Sustainable Construction Practices.

From forest to frame, we use local resources and innovative construction methods to build structures that last generations in Northern New England’s harsh climate. Our homes offer superior energy efficiency and low maintenance costs due to our use of effective green building techniques.

"We build it like they used to…but like they haven't done yet," Old School Builder Founder Keone Maher in a 2005 WCAX-TV Feature on Old School Builders.






“Kids come to work with their builder dads. It's all part of the barn-raising tradition. A community turns out to celebrate the structure.”

-Jack Thurston, WCAX
