HISTORIC FULL HOME RENOVATION - LARGE SCALE ADDITION
We are so thrilled with the full renovation of our home! We were a little afraid to strip it down to the studs, but the work your team did from architectural design to the finish work resulted in a beautiful home. We were so impressed with all of your carpenters and contractors that worked on the job. We truly appreciated their knowledge and expertise! They treated this project as if they were working on their own home. More times than I can count, I witnessed people taking an extra step to make sure the outcome of everything was perfect! There were so many decisions we had to make along the way that could have been overwhelming, but you provided us with options and pricing that helped us make the choice that suited our needs. We were also so impressed that you were so available every time we reached out. It was amazing how fast you returned emails, texts and phone calls!
Thank you for building us a new home in the shell of a beautiful 120 year old Victorian! It’s the perfect balance of old world and new age, we can’t thank you enough!

FULL HOME RENOVATION + ADDITION
We worked with BLB for the past year with a major renovation of our 1880s farm house, as well as an addition project. BLB was a pleasure to work with- thorough, responsive, dependable, and completed the project right on time. Ben and his guys are all wonderful and great to work with. We are THRILLED with how our home has turned out due to all the talent over at BLB!

We are just wrapping up a home renovation project with BLB Custom Building and we could not be more pleased. From the very outset, they left us with a high degree of confidence in the way they scoped out the job including a detailed schedule and cost estimate. They were creative and offered a variety options in an effort to capture our needs, tastes and budget. All their workers were serious professionals who took great pride in the quality of their work. No surprise that we were extremely pleased with the results. What we were most impressed with however, was their attention to all the "little things" that are so hard to find in today's economy...always on time, always neat, always respectful of our home, always in touch if something was behind schedules. These little things mean everything to a homeowner when hiring a contractor. Ben (the owner) clearly recognizes this and has made it a signature feature of the company.
FULL HOME RENOVATION
BLB Custom Building is simply the best company as is the company's General Contractor and Owner, Benjamin L Becker. Ben and his team are better than any that I've ever used before or heard about. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb and the company delivers all that it promises at a reasonable cost and in a timely manner. Solutions to problems that inevitably arose during the renovation of my house were efficient and smart! Not only was I treated with the utmost care and consideration, but so were my neighbors! Thank goodness! Perhaps most importantly, the process itself was enjoyable from start to finish! Ben had the uncanny ability to interpret my every request (small and large) into beautiful, practical yet creative and original designs. His office manager's skillful and resourceful contributions are also worthy of mention!

We searched a very long time for a “true professional” to work on our nearly 100-year-old Newburyport home. In BLB Custom Building, we found exactly that. Benjamin Becker is a classic professional. He is prompt, attentive, trustworthy, honest, and more creative, and talented than one can imagine. Where others wanted to cut corners, lacked creativity, or wanted to overdo repairs by tearing down and replacing, Ben has consistently offered ideal solutions, while seeking to preserve our home’s integrity, without excessive cost - no matter what size job. He is attentive to schedules and swift with responses - and very patient. Ben’s high values are a rarity; he and his team of artisans deserve the highest of praises.

HISTORICAL RENOVATION + LARGE SCALE ADDITION
We wanted to continue living in our home, in order to do so we decided to add an addition to make life easier. Ben helped us and walked us through making it happen. His crew was outstanding, cooperative, helpfull, knowledgeable and very neat.. Because we had to live through the construction it would have been difficult had Ben not coordinated the outside contractors to meet the deadline. BLB Custom Building does quality work and was supervised to make sure we were pleased throughout the project.

LARGE SCALE ADDITION
BLB Custom Building worked with us every step of the way to design and build our dream home. I can't say enough about Ben and his entire team. They are consummate professionals--trustworthy, skilled, and individuals of the highest integrity. Not only did they build us a place to call home, but everywhere I turn I see examples of the attention to detail and the care that went into getting it all right. BLB Custom Building truly cares about quality and customer service and I can not recommend them highly enough.

Having executed 4 separate building projects with BLB Custom Building – one residential and three commercial - I can attest to their superior skill, efficiency, and value. Projects are completed on time, the crew skilled and accommodating, and the General Contractor is an effective communicator with great attention to detail. They have a winning formula and I am a happy, repeat customer.

I've had several contractors work on my house over the years and have never recommended them to anyone because none of them could do what I thought I could do myself if I had the time. It comes down to caring about a person's house as much as they do. That is really important to me and, I imagine, most homeowners. Ben and his crew clearly understands this. They have been great to work with, both as contractors and as people. I will use them again on my next home project and recommend them to anyone who asks. And if asked, I will tell them that BLB Custom Building cares about your house as much as you do. Its really that simple.

KITCHEN RENOVATION + ADDITION
My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice of hiring Ben Becker and BLB Custom Building for an extensive renovation to our 1916 home. The job included bumping out our house and adding a new kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, and several custom built-ins. Ben provided a thorough and accurate estimate, collaborated with us to refine our design, and then went to work - finishing on time and on budget. The final product is beautiful, functional, and built to last. Ben and his crew are responsive, professional, talented, and truly a pleasure to work with. We won’t hesitate to give BLB a call for future projects.

CUSTOM ICF HOME
Ben is completely trustworthy. He is also very patient and responsive to our ideas. The house we built is unique. It has two master bedrooms on the main living level, insulated concrete forms (icf) for walls and rooftop solar panels. Ben is particularly good at finding the right architect and subcontractors to do these jobs. This comes from his experience working with his father who was also a builder in this area. Ben saved us many thousands of dollars in his selection of the architect alone. I cannot say enough about Ben as a builder.

FULL HOME HISTORICAL RENOVATION
What a pleasure it has been to work with Ben and his crew! We recently renovated my mother's single-family home back to a two-family to allow for generational living and thinking about the future. Ben took the time to sit with us many times while we planned this project. He was always available to answer questions and offer guidance throughout the project. We did have some surprises due to the age of the house, but Ben offered solid solutions that worked and helped keep extra costs down. Our new house is beautiful and my mom is loving her space as well. We highly recommend Ben for any projects.

CUSTOM WINE CELLAR
Punctual, professional and perfect are three words that describe BLB. From the initial consultation, to the site visit to the construction and final finishes, we really enjoyed having BLB working on our house. No request was to much and was received with 'Yeah, we can do that."
Chris J. Newburyport, MA
I hired BLB Custom Building in 2014 to thoroughly renovate a condo I had just purchased in Newburyport. In a word, magnificent. Excellent. Expert. Thorough. Thoughtful. Attentive. Adept. Ben and his crew built me a beautiful living space, exhibited mad skills, were trustworthy and kind. Highly recommend!

FULL HOME RENOVATION
Excellent overall experience. BLB Custom Building worked with me to renovate my home which was originally built around 1850. Ben did a great job providing me with a very detailed cost estimate, and change orders as the job progressed. The reconstruction and craftsmanship is outstanding, and well-matched to retain the character of my colonial home. The BLB team has the knowledge, foresight, and experience needed to work with older homes. I am very happy with the end result, and highly recommend BLB Custom Building.
