Thank you to our clients for taking the time to share their Harper ELM experience.

“…a wonderful job…”

“I have worked with Harper Elm over the past 2+ years on multiple projects. They did a wonderful job restoring our barn and other major projects in our house. Our house was originally a large barn so they were faced with numerous challenges specific to its structure and history.

I would highly recommend Harper Elm, especially for projects related to antique or otherwise unique structures.

“class guys who do things the right way” 

“Top class guys who do things the right way all the time.

We worked with Ian, Ben, and the team on turning an old cape into a modern home and they delivered a home that we’re extremely happy with built with a level of craftsmanship and cared that matched our expectations.

We’re already thinking about the next home to build with the team. Thanks!”

quality of the work was extremely high

“I worked with Harper Elm for over a year doing a full house gut renovation in Somerville. The quality of the work was extremely high – they employ true craftsmen who know how things are meant to be done.

There was a carpenter on sight every day managing the work on-site and I had easy access and regular meetings with the project manager to assess project progress, costs, and the inevitable issues that arise when you are working on a 100-year-old house.

Highly recommended!

“Their work is very high quality…” 

“Harper Elm did a full renovation of our house in Wayland. They built a new additional garage bay, extended kitchen and family room, built a new big screened porch, laundry room, refinished the basement, renovated all bathrooms, kitchen among many other things. They converted traditional colonial house into transitional or mostly contemporary house.

Their work is very high quality; they are attentive to details and always open to new ideas and unconventional solutions. They are highly responsive to any urgent request. The lead carpenter was always on site working on projects and supervising the work. He worked in sync with our designer’s requests.

All workers and subcontractors were very professional, friendly and accommodating.

We are very happy with the result and love our new home. We are thankful to Harper Elm for their dedicated work.


Ian is my go-to recommendation for General Contractor/Home Builder

“As a real estate agent, Ian is my go-to recommendation for General Contractor/Home Builder.

Ian provides me, my clients, family, and friends with professionalism, fairness, logic, and clarity. When I refer Ian, I know he will give our clients the time and attention to their unique situation required to produce the highest quality home environment. He hires excellent subcontractors who are friendly, experienced, and who do not cut corners.

From initial conversations to the completion of projects, I have seen Ian deliver detailed answers to questions, lend ideas for cost savings, ensure safe construction zones, and exhibit conscientiousness and courteousness to the homeowners in addition to the property itself throughout the duration of his building projects.

My trust in his technical competence and comfort with his clear, thorough communication style is the reason why I trust Ian with my own home in addition to those in my network. Please feel free to contact me via Ian for more details on the work his company does with me and my clients.
