"Our experience with New Energy Works was fantastic from start to finish. The quality of the reclaimed wood they found for our home, as well as the precision engineering of the wood is unsurpassed. Anyone who has seen our home marvels at the beauty of it and those who understand wood, marvel at the workmanship. The New Energy Works crew who raised our timber frame were fun, professional, hardworking and obviously very skilled. We delight in bragging about New Energy Works because they deserve it!"
"We’ve taken to calling our house ‘Alpine chic’. New Energy Works is able to fit anyone, any site, any style with a combination of design and function—it’s why we picked you guys."
"We saw your completed timber frame in Cold Spring. It is unbelievably beautiful! Thank you for the great work!"
"From the initial talks through the design and barn raising process, it was a true delight working with the New Energy Works team. They understood the importance of making our structure look as old as possible and were able to match the color to our exact needs, along with incorporating a retractable roof along the entirety of the space. It's a delight to watch patrons enter the space for the first time and see their reaction to how impressive the structure is! "
"The entire team at New Energy Works was so enjoyable and easy to work with. They really helped to guide our project from the beginning concept through to completion. We couldn't be happier with the outcome."
"New Energy Works did an excellent job of bringing to life our vision of a non-traditional timber frame design that takes advantage of the natural setting and solar aspect. The home is truly a joy to live in year round. Without their expertise and patience, we never could have utilized trees from our property in construction of the frame and ceilings. The craftsmanship is amazing, and it's clear that the crew takes great pride and passion in their work."
"From our first visit to the New Energy Works home office through the completion of our barn, our experience with New Energy Works has been nothing but AMAZING! They delivered a beautiful barn that exceeded our expectations. They are truly skilled craftsman."
"This project is a family home, a place where we hope to spend lots of quality time. To see our hard work and New Energy Works brought together is amazing!"
"It wasn’t a hard decision to choose New Energy Works as we were impressed with their portfolio of projects and their incredible team of craftsmen. The raising of the timber frame was such an exciting time; it stood like a beautiful piece of sculpture on our property."
"The timbers give an unexplainable warmth to our home that no other building product can provide. We're looking forward to working with the New Energy Works team long into the future. Thanks for making the dream a reality."
"The house is just so livable. It is such a wonderfully unique and special property and New Energy Works helped us design and build what we feel is the perfect house. It has a fantastic balance between indoor and outdoor space. The craftsmanship is truly exquisite."
"As always, the New Energy Works team’s vision, together with their highly skilled level of craftsmanship, helped create a space that is both relaxing and inviting...exactly what the homeowner wanted."
"Our experience with New Energy Works was a 10! The team was amazing. From the 3D drawings to the fantastic communication, we would not change a thing. It was so much fun watching all of these huge beams arrive to the site and become our barn."
"Using a timber frame for the new home of Ithaca Foreign Car Service delighted all of us, from Ithaca's building inspectors to the people who watched the building go up while standing on the sidewalk. The coordination between NEW and Latipac (our GC) was outstanding. Ten years later we are still very happy! The only problem being that new customers often aren't able to find us as it doesn't look much like a car shop."
"This project is a family home, a place where we hope to spend lots of quality time. This was the first time I could really see the house taking physical shape…all the 3D drawings in the world, wood samples and inspiration photos didn’t hold a candle to walking through the unfinished lower level, experiencing the proportions. I was proud to be there and know that this was our project, that my family is building this for our future and to see our hard work and New Energy Works being brought together in such an amazing fashion!"
"The frame looks great. Even better than I expected. What precision! The crew was professional and talented. It was fun to watch them work together."
"The process was great from the beginning to the end. We enjoyed working with everyone and we look forward to the future with New Energy Works' frames. We could not be happier with the result. Place looks great! Thank you!"
"The NEW team came in and walked us through the process to create a home of peace and beauty. There is not a day that goes by where we are not overwhelmed with gratitude for what our home has become."
"It has been a great ride! Once we got into the timber raising, your crew showed their colors. They were fun to watch and talk to - a great bunch. What a good adventure for us...wow, it is a real cool house. I will cut this short since I could go on and on - thanks for your passion and help and guidance."
"I was really impressed with the professionalism of New Energy Works' crew and the quality of the company's work. Their team raised the frame smoothly and efficiently - these guys know what they're doing! All in all, a great experience with a top notch product."
"Pike and our many great subcontractors including New Energy Works poured their heart and soul into this project. Great Design + Great Build = Great Design/Build. We really enjoyed the teamwork and getting the best results through early collaboration, and most importantly, are excited the customer is happy. Well done."
"Everyone we worked with at New Energy Works was warm and professional. We would not have the special home we have today without the guidance and workmanship of the wonderful NEW teams. "
"Wow. The process was fun, collaboration was tremendous and give and take (each time with a smile) was never an issue. You achieved exactly what we had in our minds - superb workmanship yet casual and welcoming, new but a nod to old and post & beam that didn’t go “country”. The onsite crew was great - clearly good at what they do and very welcoming to an audience of amazed onlookers. We really appreciate all the effort and caring you put into making this happen. What a great focal point for our new home."
"We’ve been in for about 4 weeks now and are loving it. Thanks again for your wonderful design. As nice as all the finishes are (including the timbers and the incredible craftsmanship of Nevin and his crew), the most consistent compliment we get is on the design of the house. It’s so comfortable and perfectly designed for this lot. "
"I just wanted to thank you for the great work that's been completed on our project. The workmanship looks fantastic. Working with you guys and your field crew has been a great pleasure & success. NEW stands in a class of its own. "Link »
"Working with the staff of New Energy and their sister company NEWwoodworks has been delightful. It amazes me that there are so many competent people at every level of these organizations. Collaborating with talented people enabled us to construct a quality home that has truly exceeded our expectations."
"It was a brilliant day! I went back to the site after everyone left and sat there in awe of the beautiful structure your team built. I didn't want to leave. Thanks again for helping Cindy and I realize our vision and for making it such a rewarding experience. "
"Speaking as the Architect, Builder, and Homeowners we could not be more pleased with the final outcome of our project! The entire New Energy Works team exceeded all of our expectations both professionally and personally. One of the most exciting moments in building our home was watching the frames go up. The craftsmanship of the timber frames is outstanding providing us with spectacular interior and exterior spaces in which to live. Thanks again to the whole New Energy Works team for providing us with such a wonderful experience!"Link »
"Thanks again for what New Energy Works did for the Oregon Garden Learning Pavilion project. You were the exclamation point for the job. So glad I met you."
"Everyone who walks through the house remarks on the thoughtful design that went in to it, how it’s perfectly designed to take in the views of the lake, how it works so well with the lot, and how ideally situated all the rooms are to one another. New Energy Works did an excellent job taking notes I provided and your own observations from the site visit in Blowing Rock, to design the perfect house for this location and for us."
"New Energy Works was easy to work with, collaborating and communicating clearly with our Architect and with us. Watching the frame go up was exciting and the result of the process is not just a house, but a home we love. The warmth and craftsmanship of the timber frame is such a pleasure to live in and truly distinguishes the exterior of our home."
"From the office crew’s responsiveness and attentiveness, to the field crew’s hard working, professional and friendly demeanors, I thank New Energy Works for their wonderful work on the Cabana project. The approach to the overall process was the smoothest I’ve seen with design and build at this scale. "Link »
""We really enjoyed watching you guys raise our home. You and your crew are truly amazing at what you do. Great people too! " -Kathy Wiltshire "You are true craftsman, and have done everything you said you would. Every time I told you that the schedule was changing, you just smiled and said, "no problem, we'll make it work." I can't tell you how important that has been to us," - Steve Wiltshire"
"This summer, I happened upon a home that New Energy Works recently built on Keuka Lake and was given a spontaneous personal tour by the gracious owner, who just raved about her experience with New Energy Works. My goodness, what a beautiful home! New Energy Works has always done amazing work, but you just keep getting better. The houses on your website are also impressive and the staff has grown tremendously. I just had to say what a pleasure it was to stumble across such an exuberant example of New Energy Works’ success. Congrat’s!"
"Working with New Energy Works was a pleasure! From our initial tour of the facility, all the way through the raising and beyond, it went flawlessly. Not only did they assist us in re-engineering our architectural drawings, they improved the layout as well as saved us money! We added additional posts and beams at a later date with ease. We would recommend them to anyone interested in building or remodeling. We LOVE our new home!"
"I just wanted to take the time and share some of my thoughts. It has been a great ride! Once we got into the timber raising, your crew showed their colors. They were fun to watch and talk to - a great bunch. What a good adventure for us...wow, it is a real cool house. I will cut this short since I could go on and on: Thanks for your passion and help and guidance. Pam and I look forward to getting you guys out for fun and eats many times in the future."
"New Energy Works was great all around. Extremely professional and highly creative. We couldn’t be happier with our new lake home."
"New Energy Works crafted and installed the heavy timber framing for our new house, helping to create an extraordinary, mountain style, dream-fulfilling home. We had a very good experience."
"New Energy Works made a complicated job look easy. Sean Berman followed our exacting plans precisely and fabricated the timber framing from the Owner’s pine logs that were cleared from the property. To top it off, they helped the owner assemble the frame on remote Hickory Island on the St. Lawrence River."
"Thanks to New Energy Works and Drake for all of their attention to detail on the timber frame, and then some, with our new home. Everyone has been so helpful through the entire process. The professionalism and down-to-earth business sense is amazing in this company. Thank you so much for helping make this house a Home!"
"The raising was unbelievably easy...You guys do such a great job and were a pleasure to do business with. Sean could not have been more helpful pulling everything together. So thank you!"
"Drake, I just wanted to thank you for the effort you have put in so far. We got home with sugar plums dancing in our head. The reality of getting this project started is just setting in, we are both excited and nervous, so it has been nice to have your experience to help us. Thanks!"
"Thank You to each person that worked on our home. We love it here. You're all special people, working together you make dreams real!"
"As the architect on this job, I would like to say thank you. From our initial meeting, through documentation with your design staff and now installation — the entire process has been an exceptionally good experience."
"The home fits the site, and the clients to a tee. Was visiting last fall while the client was there cleaning up for their dogs' first visit — you could read the utter joy in his expression and step. Inside, the home is surprisingly cozy for such a large structure. Amazing. Keep up the great work. Will look forward to working with you again."
"What an extraordinary home you have built. I consider it a centerpiece in my life and a culmination of almost fifty years of combined dreaming between my wife and me."
"Your crews are fantastic to work with, and the craftsmanship is amazing as usual. We look forward to working with you again."
