We chose Fred Clow to build our house based upon
recommendations from friends and after several site visits. We
found that Fred's work, representing a wide range of architectural
styles, was uniformly of excellent quality and that his reputation
was second to none.
Fred is a truly hands-on builder who combines the
nuts-and-bolts knowledge of construction with a highly developed
architectural sense. He worked closely with us to realize our
vision, which was especially important to us as we were working
without an architect. His crew consists of some of the most
skilled finish carpenters in the Upper Valley; they were able to
recreate a number of the 18th-century designs for our house based
upon photographs and historical documents. We were delighted
with Fred's attention to detail and dedication to our project.
As we did not begin with fully executed
architectural drawings, it was impressive that Fred was able to
complete our house on budget and to our complete satisfaction.
We subsequently collaborated with Fred and his crew on a second
building and have been very satisfied to have received excellent
value on both projects. We love our home and have greatly
enjoyed it during the past four years. Fred would be our first
choice for any future project and we can happily recommend him to
anyone considering building a custom house or renovation.
