Let's Build Your Dream Home

Hawthorn Builders is a well-respected name in the residential construction industry.  The formula to our success is our relentless attention to detail, our exceptional customer service and our devotion to quality.  We emphasize open communication with our clients throughout our custom projects, and our homes feature the finest craftsmanship and materials in the market.  We guarantee our clients’ complete satisfaction with their design-build or renovation experience.  

New Homes & Renovations

Our new homes and renovations are custom designed and tailored to our clients’ specifications and budget.  We source properties directly in our community, and often work with prospective customers well in advance of securing a site to develop.  We also engage with clients who have already purchased a property or are redeveloping or renovating their existing home.  Our proven process encompasses all phases of the design-build process beginning with initial concepts and continuing through to the final finishing touches.  As seasoned experts in residential home development, we have the experience and resources necessary to address the diverse styles and expectations of our client base.

Elegant Design

Whether the scope is basic built-in sketches, a new kitchen or a full set of construction plans, the design phase is the essential first step in any successful development project.  Hawthorn Builders’ Design team draws from decades of experience in all aspects of home renovation and construction.  Many of our design clients are committed to a longer term design-build project with our firm, but we also work with homeowners or prospective customers who are in the early stages of developing ideas for their project – whether it is two story addition, a new home or a kitchen/bath remodel.  We help our clients define their scope to match their vision with their budget.

What You Need to Know Before Starting A Renovation

We frequently get calls from homeowners considering a home renovation project. The questions are often quite similar: Does the project make financial sense? Will I get what I invest in this project back when I sell the home? Is it worth the disruption? If I can only do one part of the project, which should I do? We have learned a lot from the years that we have spent building homes and helping sellers and buyers in and around Needham. That experience has informed us and helps us guide those embarking on a project. We would like to share what we have learned: Is My Project Even Worth It?
