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.

~ Fully Insured ~


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.


We are proud of the work we have done. Check out a sampling here.

Monhegan is our home and we treat each home and project with the same care and attention that we bring to our own. We take pride in our work and seek to build long-lasting partnerships with the home owners. We recognize your Monhegan home is important to you and we appreciate you entrusting it in our care.


Don't take our word for it! Hear what our clients have to say.

Kole has general contracted and completed many large projects for us including, upgrading entire electrical system and getting the house on the power grid, installation of basement vapor barrier and dehumidifier, new sub-flooring and wood floor installation, bath and fixture upgrade. He is also acting caretaker and does a superb job managing property...he even somehow managed to get our internet up and running when no one else seemed to have the answer!

We have worked closely with Kole over the past ten years on our house and the experience has been incredibly positive. He is very responsive (comes over at all times of the day and night if needed) and tackles big issues (leaking roof) as well as small (leaking dishwasher). He has replaced or installed our roofs, ceilings, windows, doors, toilets, decks, new appliances and reshingled countless times. His work product is excellent and we find him to be thoughtful, personable and considerate. In addition, he offers creative ideas on how to approach a particular project or problem. My wife and I think very highly of Kole as a person as well as someone we trust with our house.
~Chris & Gina Nelson, Red House

We have used Monhegan Restorations as our Monhegan general contractor and caretaker for over 15 years. In that time, we have witnessed nothing but high competence and reliability in all our dealings with them. The service and integrity of Monhegan Restorations has never let us down.
