Monhegan Restorations
Getting it done since 1989
How We Can Help


Your Monhegan home withstands rough conditions. We can help ensure the integrity of your home through wind and wave.


Renovating existing structures to maintain their integrity or to return them to their former glory is our specialty. When building new construction, whether an addition, outbuilding, or new home, we aim to match the aesthetics of the surroundings.

Septic and Ground Work

Septic systems are necessary and can be difficult to install in some places. Kole has experience installing in the most difficult situations and leaving the land looking better than when he started.
Truck, Tractor, and Backhoe for hire.


For an annual fee, we ensure your home is open and ready for your arrival and buttoned up after the season. We are on-call to answer your maintenance needs through the season, and to consult and plan for off-season projects.
