Thorson Restoration Founded
Having always had an interest in the trades Eric Thorson, owner & founder worked for a number of contractors to put himself through college. His love for the building trades and historical architecture only grew after increased exposure to the industry. Upon graduating college Eric decided to make building & remodeling his life’s work and invest all of his energy in the founding of Thorson Restoration in 1991.
Wood Shop facility constructed
After some time in operation it was determined that a wood shop facility would allow the company to further it’s offering of custom details like built-in cabinetry and finer custom finish details that have become the hallmark of the Thorson brand.

Stacy joins Eric full time to focus on company development & operations
The success of the company meant that there was much to do not only in the field but also in the office. Eric thought it best to focus his efforts in the field and have Stacy join him in the management of the company operations.
Services expand and the new name “Thorson Restoration & Construction” was adopted
The company’s initial focus was on restoration of historical homes across the South Shore and Eric started with a full inside–out restoration of his own 1790 Antique Cape in Bridgewater, MA. High demand for other services led to an expansion of the company’s service offerings to include standard renovations, additions and new custom homes. The new name would better reflect the company’s capabilities.

Thorson Restoration and Construction moves to its new office, located at 12 Hedge Rd., Plymouth, MA.
It seems like just yesterday that Eric and Stacy began their small business out of the barn of their home in Bridgewater and now, almost 30 years later, the Thorson team is moved into their new office space in Plymouth, MA.
This new office and showroom space was just a dream a few years ago and Eric and Stacy couldn’t be happier to see it come to reality. They always knew that they wanted to be in Plymouth, a beautiful waterfront community that, though large in size, has a truly small town feel and they are very excited to have finally achieved their dream.
