We hired Architectural Building Arts for a large excavation and remodel project for our Hotel. Aaron, Ken, Tasha, Mike, Deann, Janet and the entire team were AMAZING! Their expertise and hospitality are world class. I cannot recommend them highly enough! They are by far the best contractors we have ever worked with

I have used ABA for numerous projects on several different houses and they have always been totally professional and met all my needs.

Everyone at ABA treats us with respect, listens to us, and responds to our questions and concerns. Their services have been top-rate–from concept, design, workmanship, subcontractors, detail, communication, and finishing touches.

We were delighted to work with ABA again, this time on a smaller project. No matter how big or small, ABA continues to provide excellent service. The personnel are friendly, communicate well, respectful of owner’s property, and great at what they do. We were notified about costs, timelines, any potential delays, when to expect work in and around the house, and a weekly check-in. All of this makes the remodeling much easier. And the finished work has always been excellent. We recommend them to all our friends who ask.

Aaron and Mike from ABA were wonderful to work with. They helped to plan and coordinate the construction of a new paver patio area in our backyard as well as providing external carpentry repairs, painting, and the ordering and installation of new storm windows. We live in an historic preservation district, and the team at ABA took care of all permits and interactions with the preservation board. We really appreciated not having to deal with this ourselves.

I have worked with Architectural Building Arts twice now and have never felt so comfortable throughout the whole process. Melinda and her team made us comfortable from the beginning. Not once did I question their integrity. And I can’t say enough about the care they took while doing our remodel. We were living in the house at the time and the impact was none. Not to mention – possibly the best craftspeople in the state.

Trust, Honesty, Care, Quality – Is how I would describe ABA.

Another great project with ABA. They turned a storage space into a beautiful garden room. I love it. Always a great team to work with. Will continue to use them in the future. This is my 4th major project with them.

ABA is a delight to work with. They plan ahead, think through potential issues, show up when they say they will, and are just generally very nice people!

Not only do we recommend ABA to others, but also we have asked them to do work for us on several different occasions and different size projects.

From start to finish, working with ABA is always a pleasure. Since they designed and built our home remodel 10 years ago, we have always called on them for jobs large and small that come up. We know they will be a joy to work with, and the results will be outstanding.

ABA did a beautiful job! They were careful to protect my relationship with my condo neighbors and management, and completed the renovation of my kitchen, 2 baths, and floors (and a few other miscellaneous things!) on time and on budget. Everyone there is friendly, helpful and professional!

These people are problem solvers and open to client ideas about green building methods and monitoring technology. We had an unusual situation that another builder walked out on, but ABA was open to unconventional ideas that worked well.se

ABA is one of the most honest and professional organizations I have ever dealt with. I have been their client for 10 years.

ABA was great to work with. They were flexible scheduling meetings around our schedules. They were professional and the project was finished in timely manner. They were great and had wonderful ideas and suggestions when help was needed. Really happy with our completed project and will not hesitate to use them in the future.

I have complete confidence in the work they do.

A highly experienced design team led us through the planning process and a master project manager coordinates the subs and solves any problems that arise before it becomes a serious breakdown.

We trust them completely with all of our house renovation projects.

We are already singing your praises with neighbors and friends. We would be happy to share our home with potential ABA clients, if that would be helpful.

Everything from start to finish was exceptionally organized and on target with our timeline, contracted budget and final finish selections. We really enjoyed the efficient & effective weekly team meetings with them. There were no unpleasant “surprises” throughout the project. The transformation of our space exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a smooth, worry free design/build project.

Our 3rd project with ABA. They are great to work with–timely, professional and exceptional craftsmanship.

The first draft of the contract did come in higher than the concept estimates, which was disappointing. I don’t know how common this is, but I would note to friends that that may happen. The concern is that we chose a general contractor with certain numbers in mind. However, Melinda and crew worked hard to reduce costs to better match our budget.

ABA has been a pleasure to work with from communication to workmanship – we are very satisfied clients.

This was a total new home construction. Architectural Building Arts is a great company to work with. They are honest, quality oriented, excellent communicators and always stand behind their work.

They understand the high level of quality I am looking for and deliver on that.

We really did not know what we wanted the space to look like and under the guidance of ABA we actually ended with a space we could not have dreamed of. Really. The entire process was exactly what we needed. You took our hands and walked us through. thank you.

I had concerns about how best to articulate our ideas to a contractor. ABA spent time to get to know us and how we planned to use the space to create the best design for us.

Great people + Great work = Great space!

We are satisfied with the quality of Architectural Building Arts’ work and absolute trust we have for them to do the job right and be in our home.

We were looking for a company that would take care of every detail of our project. In ABA, we found just that. ABA worked with us from start to finish, providing us with top-quality work and a beautiful finished product that met our goals. It was a pleasure to work with both ABA and its subcontractors.


ABA provides excellent service. This was our second project with ABA and we will work with them again–likely again within the year. Staff are professional and craftsmanship is quality.

We have worked with ABA on 4 projects. Their work is very high quality and their people are top notch. Our home has been much improved through their expertise and care. You get what you pay for and they keep their word.

We hired ABA on the strength of their reputation and have no regrets that we put our trust in them. We are exceedingly happy with the complete exterior remodel of our home and the addition of a first floor master suite. The result is traditional and fits in with the character of the neighborhood which is what we wanted. The design of the addition, especially its size and proportions, its integration with the main structure, and its siting on the lot make the added space look like it has always been there.

This was my second time using them, they previously did personal work at my residence. They were able to help me find the architect and coordinated with other parties to see everything went well. When there was a concern, a subcontractor came in and fixed it. I world recommend for high end building projects.

I believe in them completely. They did a fabulous job.

We were looking for a creative designer and builder to renovate our master and guest bathrooms. Architectural Building Arts fulfilled both objectives in a skillful manner.

Architectural Building Arts are very reliable and very professional. I have complete confidence in them and always have. I have never been disappointed with them. They have done a lot for me.

They did everything on time and on budget. I had no worries at all. I was pleased in all areas.

Outstanding experience. Great finished product. Aaron was great to work with. Bridgette did a great job in drawing a project we felt comfortable with. Mike is a great on-site manager.

You’re never sure if the outcome of a project will reflect the picture you have in mind. But Bridget listened to my thoughts, then produced a design that really worked. Mike and his team then followed up with the type of craftsmanship we have come to take for granted from ABA. The result easily exceeded my expectations and has received high praise from everyone who has seen it.

My concerns involved keeping the disruption to my home to a minimum. ABA let me know when they would be working each day. They kept the non-work sites clean and dust free. They asked for input when necessary and welcomed questions. They scheduled a weekly project meeting with the designer, the project manager and the president of the company to let us know what would be happening each week and graciously answered any questions we might have.

I have nothing but positive things to say. They are a professional company, who provide quality work done on time. We have been doing business with them for over 15 years, and we believe in their work.

Architectural Building Arts repaired my 100-year-old staircase without replacing any of the old materials for new materials.The workers did a great job of repairing and preserving my antique staircase.

Architectural Building Arts is a team of sensitive, qualified craftspeople who understand and respect the demands of renovating historic homes. I recommend them without reservation.

ABA is the most professional building company we ever worked with. We hired them initially for a very small project and just finished our third interaction, a complete master bathroom/closet remodel. The 7 weeks work went as scheduled, everything was protected and cleaned everyday, sometimes not a trace of their work. End product is 100% within our expectations, thanks to the efficient preliminary creation and planing phases. Kudos to the nice 3D graphics. The execution was smoother than anticipated, and the local crew did an outstanding job in keeping the work area protected and clean. Casey, the local project manager, did a great job in supervising the contractors, paying attention to details, establishing communication, anticipating/solving problems always in a courteous and professional manner. We highly recommend ABA services.

We highly recommend ABA to anyone considering a design/build project. Any home remodel project can be challenging for home-owners, especially if the project impacts an important living area like a kitchen and they plan to stay in their home throughout the project. ABA made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. Our Project Manager was always professional and considerate of our needs – especially regarding the disruption of daily life in a construction zone. Any questions we had were answered immediately. Any concerns were both anticipated and already taken care of before we could mention them, or were handled quickly. ABA uses reliable sub-contractors with whom they have long-standing relationships and trust to perform quality work. Our architect was always available and willing to give stylistic advice on any detail or aspect of design right up until the last day of the project. And, best of all, the 12-week project ended exactly on time! Overall, our experience was very positive and the results are beautiful!

Architectural Building Arts was professional, thorough, and reliable. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to do a high quality remodeling job or build up.

They did a fantastic job from start to finish in regards to both the design and the quality control.

We knew exactly what we were going to pay prior to paying it, so it was easy to budget. They gave us different price quotes so we had options but knew what we would be paying and they stuck to it.
