We have made a good business practice of positive and longstanding relationships with clients who are interested in the same. We've found our passions and one of the biggest parts of that passion is finding out what yours are. We are in a place right now where "the standards" and "the cookie cutter" and "the big box ideas" just don't align with the ideas we have for the future. 

When we leave your project at the end of the day, we don't stop working for you.

We stay up until the wee hours of the night discussing how we can make your experience better. How we can streamline your living experience and improve your home's lifestyle. 

BECAUSE FOR US, IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SALE. WE AREN'T USED CAR SALESMEN. We're craftsmen.

For us, it's not about just getting the job and getting out. It's about the art of woodworking and the experience of creating something so great that it will last a century.

 

What's New!?

Our instagram is blowing up.

"My best friend Scott was blind and came to me and said he wanted to run cross country. He asked me to run with him and be his guide. I was so busy working on the farm that I had never done any sports up to high school, so I showed up with my work boots on and picked up running with him. We came in last for a long time, but then I started to become very good; even with work boots on. And at some point he said, "Don't wait for me, just win."  I remember my Mum and Dad coming to watch me race, and I came in 3rd, and they noticed that everyone else was wearing sneakers and I was still wearing my steal toed work boots. So after that race we went out and they bought me a pair of Nike Cortez racing sneakers, and I came in first every race after that. I broke all kinds of records in long distance. 5,000 meters and 10,000 meters. It was a great life experience for me, to see the power of working hard actually paying off. I could never blame my equipment after that. Always take an obstacle and just overcome it." 

 

Douglas Broadbent

Master Craftsman & General Contractor

Born in East Massachusetts, Doug was raised building barns, chicken coops and fences on the family farm. During high school he worked summers apprenticing under Master Craftsman and Contractor Domanick Falconeri. For four years, Mr. Falconeri spent hours working one on one with Doug teaching him how to read and design architectural plans. Doug not only learned the tools to design plans, but also the gumption to ask for a job, the grace to manage employees and the character to build a integrity filled business.

After his apprenticeship, Doug was offered a supervisory position for another construction company working on 150,000 sq. foot commercial projects. By the end of the year, Broadbent was managing multiple commercial projects and employees across the state. In 1985, Doug founded Broadbent Builder's Inc. building and remodeling high end homes across the east coast of Massachusetts.

After moving to Florida in 2000, he built up a reputation of unfailing integrity and the utmost professionalism and was called on to design and build multimillion dollar homes.

  • I'm on a budget, is that ok?
    Haha, I am too! We work with clients on budgets everyday. Part of what makes us a great team for many people is that we understand that your dream home may cost more than you can afford right now. We will work with you to understand what you value most in your home and how we can get the most bang for your bucks right now, and in the future.

    We hear this a lot. We are pretty sure that with 10 plus years of higher education and 40 years of construction and design experience he could too. But, it might be safer (in the long run) if we take a look at it before he breaks out the sledge hammer and hot glue gun.
