We have used Thorson in the past and worked with them to create our dream home…

Additions & Whole House Remodel

We hired Thorson to redo our recently purchased water front home in Duxbury. We demolished half of the house, rebuilt, and completely redid the existing portion. Eric and his team were involved from pre purchase, to design meetings with the architect, to final completion. Their attention to detail and communication through this entire project truly exceeded our expectations. We had a vision for what we wanted the finished project to look like, and Eric and his team made it happen! Eric’s team and sub contractors were all extremely professional and our family enjoyed our frequent visits to the project. The overall project stayed on track and finished ahead of schedule!. We have used Thorson in the past (finished basement in other home) and worked with them to create our dream home. The professionalism, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and consistent communication is remarkable. I would highly recommend hiring Team Thorson for your next project, we trusted them with our new home and enjoyed a smooth process and are extremely pleased with the outcome.

Custom Home

“Eric and Team are true professionals and without question do the most top quality work we have seen. They are a terrific combination of craftsmen, builders, and project managers. We could not be happier with our home and the pool cabana they built and would highly recommend Thorson for any project big or small. His team communicates very well and as is evident in the finished product, clearly enjoys their work. Eric and his staff kept us involved and engaged throughout and were extremely responsive even after the project was finished. We will definitely use Thorson on future projects!”

He was there every step of the way…

Custom Home

My husband and I were asked to write a testimonial for Eric. We spent a lot of time gathering our thoughts on what we were going to say and went on his web site to submit our letter. Unfortunately, we had to start over because everything we had written we read in the testimonials submitted by other couples. Professionalism, quality, attention to detail, superb craftsmanship, incredible team.

Our project was challenging in that it was a waterfront tear down. Our custom home is over 5,000 square feet. During the entire project Eric was calm, listened to what our goals were and was there to offer suggestions on how to achieve them. When the house was framed he walked us through what each room would be like. As a result we made some changes before hand which saved us from having add ons. He was there every step of the way and we never had a negative experience. It has been a privilege working with Eric and his team. We are thrilled to have our dream home.”

They met each and every objective throughout the process…

Whole House Renovation

Because Thorson Restoration was always forward thinking, it enabled us to consider alternatives throughout the project that we may not have considered at the architectural design phase.  The end result was a better and more thoughtful design.  Additionally, Thorson used top of the line product and materials on all aspects of the home’s construction.  We considered  4 other Construction companies for the project; Thorson stood alone in outlining what would be their “standards”,  versus  another company’s  “premium”.

Thorson’s Professionalism was second to none.  I have many friends who have gone through home construction projects recently.  Their experiences were ones wrought with frustration taking issue with the integrity of their builder and their honesty related to costs when changes were made.  This had zero resemblance to our experience.

When Thorson promised to achieve a task or get something done.  It was done.  When representations were made, they followed through. If an issue arose, immediate attention was given.  This made the entire construction process really stress- free. Lastly, the work spaces were kept neat, clean, orderly and organized.

We felt that the end product we received was fair and honest related to cost.  For us, the value of our money was not what we “spent”, rather what we “did not have to spend” because Thorson’s knowledge of quality building put us at an advantage in doing everything efficiently and well done the first time around.  Overall, we were more than pleased with Thorson Restoration’s performance.  They met each and every objective throughout the process.  As a result, the experience of building a summer family home was nothing but fun!

Thorson Restoration was a source of great joy and satisfaction…

Custom Home

“Our previous home on this site was destroyed in a devastating fire in which we lost everything. Working to build this home with Thorson Restoration was a source of great joy and satisfaction, in a period in our life where there was not much to feel happy about. Thorson anticipated any problems we might encounter, helped us make decisions, and kept the momentum going so that we could move back only 16 months after the fire. They did a terrific job and I always unequivocally recommend them to others.”

Dave & Michelle

Their crew is top notch – very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and provide excellent customer service…

Addition & Kitchen Remodel

“Thorson Restoration & Construction built an addition and renovated the first floor (including a new kitchen) of our home for us. Their crew is top notch – very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and provide excellent customer service. There are very few companies – construction businesses or otherwise – that offer this level of client support. They were on time, on budget, meticulous about detail, clean, respectful, friendly, and proactive. They anticipated issues ahead of schedule and handled all of our questions promptly. The end result exceeds our expectations and we will hire them again in the future.”

Eric Thorson and his team are second to none. We LOVE this contractor…

Addition & Whole House Remodel

“Eric Thorson and his team are second to none. We LOVE this contractor. Before we started our project, we called other homeowners for recommendations and they shared the exact sentiments. We selected Thorson because they “engineered” the job and highlighted issues in advance to avoid surprises during construction. Due to their foresight, we had no surprises in the construction process. As for the finances, there were no surprises there either. The only changes to the initial quote were additions and deletions that we made to the project – and no financial changes were due to surprises from the contractor. Thorson’s online budgeting system was extremely accurate, required homeowner approval over every expense, and provided a detailed tally of exactly what has been spent to date. Everything with this contractor is transparent and clear – which alleviates a lot of the stress usually accompanying a construction project.

Deadlines were also tightly managed and met due to constant and clear communication between Eric, the project manager and the homeowner. If the homeowners timely complete their project selections, there will be no delay from the Thorson team.

We lived in two rooms throughout what was essentially a renovation of our entire house (including a new 1200 foot addition), and we were amazed at how smoothly the project went. We LOVED every minute of the process. The Thorson team is extremely professional, knowledgeable and neat at all times. Each member of the team excels at their respective jobs, they have a great eye for detail, and are a pleasure to work with. We even contracted with Thorson to do our lawn and some hardscaping and will continue our exterior improvements with them in the spring.

We LOVE our new home and find it difficult to come up with even one criticism – even a minor one – of the project or work performed. This in itself is a rarity in the construction world. We would highly recommend Thorson Restoration & Construction for any project and would enjoy working with them again. They absolutely deserve every award possible.”

Whole House Remodel

Eric and his crew are exceptional. We recommend them without hesitation. We recently did a whole house remodel, and the project stayed on time, and on budget. We were able to keep apprised of progress through an online portal, which was a wonderful, and unexpected, feature. Eric is attentive, and quick to respond. The workmanship was beautiful. It was evident from the start that his ultimate goal was to have a satisfied customer.

Joel & Laurie

Thorson Restoration just finished their second major project for us…

Addition, Kitchen Remodel &
Exterior Remodel

“Thorson Restoration just finished their second major project for us. After completing an addition and kitchen remodel in 2015, they just finished restoring, repairing and painting the exterior of our 1850 farmhouse. The workmanship in both projects was outstanding. Eric and the entire crew were superb craftsmen and professionals. They exceeded our expectations twice – a tough task after setting the bar so high with the first project.”

Joe & Joanie

This was our fifth time building or renovating a home and was by far the most stress-free one…

Whole House Remodel &
Custom Detached Garage

“We hired Thorson Restoration to renovate our house and a build a new and very unique garage. Eric and the crew were top notch. This was our fifth time building or renovating a home and was by far the most stress-free one. What we most appreciated, though, was their flexibility as we requested a number of changes and they were very accommodating. Thorson Team got to know us so well they were able to make recommendations we gladly adopted as our own. We would gladly hire Thorson again.”

Susan & Chris

Their price was fair and their workmanship was impeccable…

2011 Addition

“Thorson Restoration did a pretty big addition on our summer home in Plymouth. It essentially added a large master bedroom and bath. Their price was fair and their workmanship was impeccable. They worked well with our architect who designed the original house 10 years ago and the addition as well. They have a good group of subs and the changes were fairly priced. We also built a mega addition in DC and have to say of the three builders we have dealt with, Thorson is the best. Finally, Jen who runs the office was terrific in keeping us informed and helping us with plumbing and paint and other selections.”

Jim & Ginny

From the start, my wife and I felt we had found a partner in Thorson Restoration…

“From the start, my wife and I felt we had found a partner in Thorson Restoration to build our house, and we were proven correct. I cannot think of an area where we didn’t search out solutions with Eric, who consistently provided excellent guidance. “What would you do if this were your house?’ was a constant refrain. And we always got an honest answer for our troubles. The Thorson crew works quickly, but not at the expense of quality. We were particularly impressed by the quality and upbeat character of their vendors, craftsmen he’s worked with for years. Building a house is never a pleasant experience, but Thorson took us closer to enjoyment and satisfaction than we could have imagined.”

Paul & Amy

All the staff was courteous, professional and helpful…

“People warned me that building a house would be a nightmarish experience, but mine couldn’t have been better. The project was completed on time and all the staff was courteous, professional and helpful in all aspects of the job. Eric has quite an eye for detail and pointed out some things I overlooked. I absolutely love my house!”

Ebet C.

We could not be happier with the final results of our kitchen remodel…

“From Eric Thorson himself, to all the craftsmen on the job, we could not be happier with the final results of our kitchen remodel. From our initial meeting with Eric in 2016, we saw his passion, knowledge of architecture and attention to detail. We knew he was the contractor we had been looking for. He saw our vision and designed the perfect plans that would eventually become our dream, open-concept floor plan. Every employee of Thorson Restoration was a pleasure to work with. They were all timely, pleasant, efficient, neat and thorough. Our project manager was sure to keep us in the loop at all times with the company’s amazing online portal. Every detail was perfection. Since project completion in January 2017, we have recommended Thorson Restoration to many family members and friends. We have plans for some bathroom remodels in the near future and you can be sure we will be using Thorson Restoration!”

Brian & Samantha

Highly professional, have great ideas, and 100 percent on time & on budget…

“Thorson renovated our kitchen, and we could not be happier. They are highly professional, have great ideas, and 100 percent on time & on budget. They provide a calendar of all the work that is planned, and keep on track to the calendar. We were very happy that we chose Thorson, and highly recommend them. We will also only ask them to work on other house projects that we have planned.”

Beth & Ken

The project moved along swiftly…

“We hired Thorson to renovate our outdated kitchen and we were very happy with the entire process, and the results! Eric’s initial presentation to us was comprehensive and detailed. And although not our lowest bid, we hired him based on these promises of efficiency, quality and work ethics. I am happy to say we made the right decision as the project experience was better than expected. Our project manager stayed on top of things and kept us informed of scheduling and details. All the workers and associated vendors were great…experienced, efficient and always showed up on schedule. The project moved along swiftly and we were moving into our new kitchen by March, and completely finished in April of 2016. I would definitely recommend Thorson Restoration & Construction as they do top quality work with organized efficiency, something that is very important to me.”

Lauren & Chris

We highly recommend Thorson Restoration and Construction…

“Eric Thorson has been completing various projects for us for over thirteen years. The projects have ranged from remodeled bathrooms; remodeled living rooms, including custom bookcases and cabinetry as well as fireplace resurfacing in granite and custom raised panelling surround; deck design and construction and various other projects. The workmanship is always outstanding; aided by the design ideas and professional knowledge which Eric brings to each project.

Two of the most recent projects were a complete kitchen remodel and exterior siding replacement and new window trim design. Although the kitchen remodel used the existing footprint, the layout was significantly changed. By tapping into underutilized space and by using space differently, Eric produced a much more efficient design and workflow, increasing countertop work area, repositioning appliances and adding a custom built in hutch with seeded glass doors. All the cabinets were custom made and professionally painted offsite. Eric’s staff and the subcontractors all worked in unison and were very skilled and knowledgeable in their crafts. All were very considerate and polite. I believe that Eric’s hands on approach, with his skills and knowledge, to the design of the project upfront leads to a smooth process with clear communication to all involved. We highly recommend Thorson Restoration and Construction.”

Al & Janet

I am impressed with the organization of the company…

“This was our first renovation project, and despite the terrible weather this winter all went well.We had the back of our home opened,  enlarged our kitchen, bathroom and guestroom renovated, plus a deck installed. I am impressed with the organization of the company. They utilize Builder Trend for an online portal. Since I work full time it was easy to follow the progress of our project from my desk. All of my correspondence was in one place. My questions were most often answered in 1 business day. The project manager was a pleasure to work with and was able to be present at the house went we could not for inspections.The workmen were respectful of our home, we lived there through the process and were without a kitchen for more than 3 months.The workmen were neat, pleasant and did a beautiful job. As with any project there are glitches but these were resolved quickly.I would not hesitate to recommend this company.”

Ann & Tom

Some of the finest professionals…

“The Thorson Restoration & Construction team has to be some of the finest professionals we have ever worked with. From our planning meeting scoping out the project to the final walk through to ensure we were satisfied, the Thorson team made the process of finishing our basement pain free. The end product proves their attention to detail and confirms that they are the best in the business. They made a true space out of nothing and we are thankful to have partnered with such a great team!”

Kevin and Bethann

Thorson Restoration was extremely professional and organized…

“Thorson Restoration was extremely professional and organized during our kitchen renovation project. They were open and honest as well as had great feedback to ideas I had or wanted. They were willing to work with me in order to get me the results I desired for my new kitchen. In addition to our kitchen a mud room and bathroom relocation/renovation was completed. The quality of work was excellent. When we had questions, phone, email, and in person conversations were fast to be be responded to. Time was taken to explain new costs and breakdown of work that had to be done. For any subcontracted person, they were all polite and respectful of our our home and our family. We would certainly recommend and go back to Thorson Restoration & Construction for our future project needs, no matter the scope of the project.”

Tina & Steve

Thorson excels at being on time…

“Thorson Restoration is one terrific company. While other contractors are somewhat less professional, Thorson excels at being on time, completing the work on time and most of all doing it in the best possible manner. The team members on the site do the work like it is their own house! Cannot say much more than that! I used them this past winter and again this spring for some more work and I was thoroughly impressed in both instances. I have recommended them to both family and friends and will continue to do so.”

Lawrence F.

Will definitely be using them for all my house needs…

“Eric Thorson and his entire work staff have been wonderful and accommodating. I have had them remodel 2 of my homes. First, gutting an entire kitchen and living room, new roof, doors, air conditioning. My second home included painting entire home, lighting, tile.They are exceptional and have always been on time and complete all jobs beautifully. I will definitely be using them for all my house needs.”

Gina A

I would not hesitate to recommend them for any job…

“We are an Architectural Design Company that has had the pleasure of working with Thorson Restoration & Construction on several projects. Eric & his team are always professional and provide a superior product to many of the contractors I have worked with. Jen & their inner office staff keep projects moving smoothly and allows me the confidence that any clients I refer will be contacted promptly. The project is a collaborative effort and they offer helpful suggestions but always remain true to the intent of the project design. The attention to detail begins with Bob and the initial framing crew and follows through until the last details are completed. Thorson Restoration is a great “closer”. Punch list items are always addressed immediately. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any job and I look forward to collaborating on projects with them in the future.”

Jennifer Birnstiel, Archiplicity
