Some of our recent work

The craftsmanship that went into connecting the historic material and new material is beautiful. The crew was also sensitive to preserving any material impacted by the repairs. For example, when the front façade was pushed back into place, they notched out each stud and the door to preserve the maximum amount of flooring and trim. This level of detail is greatly appreciated.

I developed a great relationship with Rick Collins of Mesic Vale and his dedicated tam.  It’s evident they managed to capture my vision in all aspects of my restortation project so far.  I appreciate their attention to detail and creative approach in assisting me in bringing my Historical Farm back to life!

I was convinced immediately when Rick personally stopped by to inspect my barns that I needed to look no further – Rick was the one!  I simply cannot imagine tackling this enormous restoration project without his expertise.

As a structural engineer focusing on timber construction, I have had the pleasure of working with many large and small timber frame companies throughout North and Central America.  I have been, and continue to be, impressed with Mesic Vale on the various projects on which we have worked together; from small residential structures, to large commercial, with restorations and agricultural buildings thrown in between.  Mesic Vale certainly knows their craft of timber framing, and time and time again shows they can repeatedly deliver.
