What our clients are saying about us….

My sister and I were in dire need of someone to keep our family vacation home from sinking in. It felt very precarious walking in certain spots in the house…Enter Hank and Heidi Thorburn of Thor Construction. They have a love for older homes in need of major love….In addition to stabilizing the house, they reconfigured and totally renovated the bathroom, including two custom built-in’s for the space! I need to point out that they did all this in the winter months and we were not physically present for any of the construction, all of the work was done as a result of our initial contact and phone conversations during the project. They were able to hear and integrate our perspective as well as add their own….They were able to experience and maintain the character of our home….We had total trust in them and their work….Hank and Heidi will create the vision of your dreams. We can’t recommend them highly enough!!

Thor Construction designed and built a major renovation at our cottage in Harpswell. We are very pleased with the quality of work and design implemented by Hank and Heidi. As a bonus, Hank and Heidi are a pleasure to work with. They are very responsive and came in on budget on the construction.
They also had terrific ideas to use the space in ways we hadn’t thought of and ended up building a ship’s ladder from the living room up to a sleeping loft. We highly recommend them.

Thor Construction has done two separate projects on my home in Harpswell. I find Hank and Heidi to be professional in all aspects of the construction process. I would definitly hire them again and indeed, have more phases of work to go. I wouldn’t hire anyone else.
They are creative, enthusiastic, knowledgable, exercised great aesthetic judgment and can problem solve well. During construction they were considerate of my home, personal belongings and cleaned up well after the work was complete.
I myself am in the construction business and am very fussy about how the work gets executed, even to the smallest detail. This was no problem at all for Hank and Heidi, first rate work all around.

Hank takes great pride in his work. It was important for us to find someone who could provide a high quality of craftsmanship for our beautiful Victorian. He was fair with his pricing, responsive to our questions, and truly collaborated all along in the process. We’re thrilled with the transformation of our home and are now used to not only getting compliments from those we know but from strangers, too! We greatly appreciate Hank’s professionalism. His genuine care, as what one would expect from a friend, has made this a unique, gratifying experience for us. We missed the crew when they left!

It is a pleasure to comment upon and likewise recommend Thor Construction, Harpswell, ME, to a wider community of homeowners, building contractors or anyone seeking professional and highly conscientious housewright services. As an architect and owner of a mid-19th century house in mid-coast Maine, Heidi and Hank (Thor Construction) began work on our house with a scope of work initially entailing minor wood replacement, reconstruction of several building elements, selective reworking of exterior clapboards and trim.
Perhaps all too predictable for a 170 year-old wooden structure, excavation into walls, sills, thresholds, revealed serious deterioration of not just surfacial but structural building members requiring immediate attention. Here Thor Construction’s familiarity with historic structures, materials and building methods proved invaluable. Noting 19th century building techniques, Hank and Heidi worked to preserve what could be maintained and methodically reproduced and improved upon building details where necessary. Several corner posts and cross bracing were either partially or completely replaced, window frames and cornice moldings, replaced 30 – 40% of clapboards and leaded flashing around window and door openings describe just some of the expanded scope of the project. In so doing, their work was professional and thorough, attentive to historical accuracy and while the project budget exceeded initial expectations (through no fault of Thor Construction), we were appraised at each stage of estimated costs and contingencies, which as clients, provided peace of mind essential to any building venture.

We thus recommend Thor Construction very highly and look forward to working with Heidi and Hank on future projects.
