Our Story

A Maine builder with an eye for timeless quality, beautiful buildings have always been our passion

Founded by John A. Libby in 1971, the company is built upon the guiding principle that delivering the highest possible quality and craftsmanship is the best way to get the job done. When John Libby was growing up in Presque Isle, Maine, he worked alongside his father, also a Maine builder, in the family’s small construction company. It was here that he gained an appreciation for quality work and lasting client relationships. Our entire team believes in getting the job done right and providing exceptional customer service. It is the foundation of our success.


We build beautiful and energy efficient timber frame and conventional houses and barns, strong enough to endure the test of time. While many of our projects do not include timber frames, we have the added capacity of being an authentic timber framing company with a talented crew. Much of the timber frame work we do in our Freeport shop is still done by hand using traditional tools. While the methods have changed very little, timber frame design has become extremely versatile, opening the door to many aesthetically intriguing possibilities in modern day architecture.
