Since 1989, it has been our mission to make custom home design and construction, an experience that our clients enjoy. With a genuine enthusiasm for what do,
we apply in- depth building and design experience to ensure you an enjoyable and personalized process from start to finish.
This is what sets us apart — shapes our values, and the way we do business.
We earn trust the old-fashioned way. Operating with integrity, we focus on open communication, responsiveness, and getting things done right. Our cost-plus contracts ensure total transparency, and put you in control. And, we always operate with the understanding that your best interest is also ours.
We are genuinely passionate about your vision, and deeply engaged in how you will live in your home. The real magic of our work is aligning your goals to building realities and budget. Our team thrives on identifying custom design and building solutions – always thinking expansively and pragmatically to bring your dream to life.
Our “round table” approach to project management combines our team’s talents in architectural design, site planning, construction, interior design, specialty woodworking and custom cabinetry, to ensure deep expertise and integrated solutions throughout the life of your project. A unique aspect of our firm; our design team splits time between the drawing table and the field, bringing hands-on builder skills to the table in the earliest phases of your planning.
We focus on building enduring relationships by delivering an enjoyable and personalized custom building experience to each of our clients. As a family-owned firm, we strive to serve as trusted partners and advisors from our first discussions until well after construction is complete. The on-going personal and active involvement of Jeff Sweenor gives you direct access to our leadership and assurance of our company-wide commitment to excellence.
Our Clients Say it Best...
“I cannot say enough about working with this company and its employees. From start to finish, our experience has been an enjoyable and pleasurable one.”
“The success of any project is predicated on the caliber of the construction team. It is this quality that I believe separates Sweenor apart from other builders in our area.”
“Our experience with Sweenor Builders was outstanding. Jeff’s attention to detail, creativity in design, and track record meeting deadlines were among his top attributes. His passion for building and communication with his clients made the experience a pleasure and something that we will always cherish in our new home.”
“In 30 years of practice, I’ve honed my appreciation of the value a good builder brings to a client and project. No one in my opinion brings more value than Jeff Sweenor.”
“Jeff’s work ethic and craftsmanship are amazing and his attention to detail is spot on. It was a pleasure working with him.”
I had the pleasure and privilege to work alongside Jeff on the Net Zero project for This Old House. The restoration of this 1920s bungalow into a Net Zero, high- performance home was both comprehensive and demanding. Jeff and his team delivered a top-notch house that will stand up not only to the scrutiny of our millions of viewers but also to the small group of neighbors in the quaint village of Jamestown, RI.”
“It is with pleasure that I recommend Sweenor Builders. My husband and I had previously built four homes so we were very familiar with the process, pitfalls and possible outcomes. Jeff and his team were by far the most impressive – for building knowledge regarding materials and energy savings, overall quality of work, and communication with clients.”
“Sweenor Builders built our home from the ground up. Jeff was always personally available to answer questions or concerns by telephone or e-mail. We are thrilled with the result. We highly recommend Jeff and his team to those seeking an honest, reputable and highly professional builder.”
“Jeff Sweenor has been a customer for over 25 years. His company is one our highest quality business partners, and we recommend him without hesitation to our potential home building customers. The quality is evident in craftsmanship and integrity as a builder.”
“We found working with Sweenor Builders to be remarkably uncomplicated: we called, they made themselves available; we emailed, they responded; we asked questions, they had answers; we had a problem, they had solutions.”
