Over the past 25 years, I have honed my craft by working on countless carpentry and construction projects. I specialize in old home restoration, paying particular attention to historic preservation and architectural detail. Old homes require special care, and I can help add charm to your house by remodeling a kitchen or bath, repairing a porch, addressing underlying rot, or planning an addition.

"Tim Lillis is the real deal. He perfectly restored our historic 1890 commercial building that is the visual center of The Square in Bellows Falls, Vermont. The 3-story yellow clapboard building at 3 Rockingham Street was near the end of its death march when Tim swooped in. He immediately grasped the enormity of what in the end was a $700,000 project and was energized by the challenge and the room it would allow for his creativity and design skills to go to work and for his impeccable workmanship to shine. He attends to the details in a way that is unparalleled and, as those of you looking for good work know, that makes all the difference. He has an eye for form and sees how to make the basics beautiful. He undid and redid years of sloppy and unsafe weird stuff that had brought the building to its current state. He served as de facto on-site project manager, taking care of things large and small as the needing doing. And he did this all without ever (and I mean ever) being a jerk! He is so very kind and listens so well that you trust him, and you know that he cares about building your vision, but in a way that will actually work. 3 Rockingham Street, Bellows Falls, Vermont is now, after so many years, safe, gorgeous, and open to the public!"
