Fine Home Building and Woodworks

Judy and Cosimo Policastro

Dear Bret,

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we are writing to you to tell you how incredibly proud we are of our home.  In the spring of 2013 we began to design our dream home - a post and beam house with magnificent views of Stratton Mountain.  At that point, we had an image in our minds of what we hoped our winter home would look and “feel” like, but in our wildest dreams, we never imagined we would be as fortunate as we were to have been introduced to someone with such amazing talent and love of his craft. Our dream was to build a home our family would love to continue to share and create a lifetime of family memories in, and hopefully keep our family together for years to come. We still pinch ourselves every time we open our door and realize that the artistic masterpiece you built us with such beauty, meticulous craftsmanship and warmth is really ours. This is our first holiday in our home, and I am thrilled that our entire family is sharing it with us!


When our project manager, Bill Palumbo, called to say how fortunate we were that you were available to build our post and beam home, we could never have imagined how exceptional it would be.  We still remember Bill’s description of your talent and of your passion for the work you do - he told us that you are simply the absolute best in the business.  As we have come to find out, Bill’s description is an understatement of you talent and commitment.


There were so many times that you approached us with recommendations about details in the design of our home; each and every time we would respond and tell you to use your own judgement because we trusted your opinion. The end result always far surpassed our expectations.


We were so thrilled with your work that we asked that you design and build the central staircase to our home.  Needless to say, the staircase is also exceptional and is the centerpiece of our home.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done, and to wish you continued success in all you do.

Our very best regards, 

Judy and Cosimo Policastro
