“Building and renovation experiences are often stressful and tense because of uncertainties and surprises. Our experience with Brian and his crew of Merrymeeting Builders was like working with old and trusted friends. The sub-contractors were excellent and showed deep mutual respect. The experience was honest, direct, creative, cheerful, ahead of schedule, and on-budget. We have remained friends and have recommended them to relatives and other friends. We wouldn’t consider using anyone else for future projects.”
“As an Architect I have worked with many excellent builders since 1971 and Brian Huey is one of the best. The project was completed under budget and ahead of schedule.”
“We recommend Merrymeeting builders without reservation. We feel very fortunate indeed that Brian and his crew built our home. It is simply extraordinary and we look forward to a lifetime of memories here – Brian Huey and his team are exceptional.”

“When my wife and I started the process of interviewing builders, we were not sure what to expect. We had heard horror stories about building a house and how many times people could not trust their contractor. Our plans were only about 85% complete when we started interviewing builders. We got the sense from others that the price could really fluctuate greatly based on what they saw. Brian Huey looked at the plans and asked many detailed questions that helped to define the process. His bid came in much lower than the others, and we were skeptical.
We took a chance with him because everyone who we talked to who worked with him in the past had only wonderful things to say about his craftsmanship, work ethic and personality. Our project got started when he said it would and moved along as he told us it would. We made decisions with him during the process and he kept us very involved. He was on site every day and was always accessible to us when we needed to talk.
He definitely has an eye for what works and what doesn’t work. He would tactfully steer us away from bad decisions and suggest great ideas that we had not thought of. He always was looking out for us spending money that we didn’t need to spend as well.
We have been in our house for over 5 years and still love every aspect of it. He made the process of building our first (and last) house as easy and fun as possible. Friends of ours have had Brian build houses, camps and additions based on seeing the craftsmanship of our house and hearing us talk about how wonderful the process of building our house was for us.”

“Over the past 5 years, Merrymeeting Builders has completed several projects on our two houses. The projects included: a family room, mudroom and garage addition, 2 kitchen and 3 bath remodels, installing tile and hardwood floors and radiant heat, wiring a full house generator and upgraded electrical panel, custom cabinetry, replacing all windows and clapboards, various structural improvements and residing the entire garage and house. Brian and his team have exceeded our expectations every time. All jobs were completed on time and on budget. The quality of work was unsurpassed! Brian is very knowledgeable about all aspects of construction and has a solid team of sub contractors working with him. They were all neat, hard working, efficient, skilled, responsible, honest and a pleasure to work with. Qualities that were very important, since we lived in the house during all of the renovations. Brian is also frugal with your money and will always make recommendations about the best way to contain cost without sacrificing quality or esthetics. He has an amazing eye and cares about every detail. Most importantly, Brian is trustworthy and stands behind his work. He will correct any issues that come up, during or after the job is done. Our greatest testament to Brian and Merrymeeting Builders is that we have referred him to friends and family. We recommend Merrymeeting builders without reservation for any construction project, no matter how big or small.”
