Land and a Spec House

Clearwater Builders is pleased to be a partner in the purchase of a beautiful piece of land with lake and mountain views in Shelburne, Vermont.  There are 3 building lots and we are committed to building top-quality, moderately-sized, Energy Star rated homes of custom designs.The lots are about 2.5 acres and border on conserved land to the west, thus protecting the beautiful views.  There is excellent southern exposure for passive solar gain or solar panels.  We began construction of the first house in December, and are making excellent progress thanks to temperate weather and an energized crew.  The finished house will be 3,000 s.f /- with the capability of adding additional living space over the garage or in the walk-out basement.  We are sourcing local wood and our craftsmen will custom build window seats, bookshelves, cabinetry, coffered ceilings, and other thoughtful details.  Contact us for further information and a tour!

Camp Renovation

This project is the main residence that is tied in with the in-law apartment.  We all enjoyed creating unique details from the vaulted, elliptical ceiling above master bath vanities, and the wood clad valleys over the extended dining and living area.

In Law Residence

This three level barn has a workshop in the basement, a two car garage with storage on the ground level, and an in-law apartment with site made built-ins, doors and vanity.   Note the outstanding masonry and the custom garage doors.

Total Farm House Renovation

This extensive renovation involved gutting a 20th century farmhouse to the exterior walls in order to create large, open, and family oriented living spaces.  Five new dormers were cut into the roof to create spacious bedrooms and offices.
