"To any and all in the Rockingham area: Tim Lillis is a fantastic contractor. I have had the pleasure of him working for me for several months on an 1850s house in Grafton, doing everything inside and out from carpentry, plumbing, tile, sheetrock, electrical, kitchen, baths, floors, doors, you name it. He is incredibly intuitive about doing things right and efficiently. He knows how to build in this Vermont environment.

He is extremely fair in pricing, respectful of the property and the homeowner, and highly reliable. He has great work ethics.

I would be happy to talk to others about his work and even show off the myriad of projects he has accomplished for us at our home."

-Rex J., Grafton, VT

"Tim has done a wide variety of carpentry jobs for me over the last 10 years, since he has been in Vermont, including stone and ceramic tile installations, interior stair installation, exterior creative problem solving to remediate moisture to garage which involved extensive carpentry repairs, installing stucco face, and cementing. He also built a three-season cottage of rough-hewed lumber, using previously owned patio doors, and renewed windows, adapting his design according to the materials acquired. His work is consistently excellent. What I like best about Tim is that he is an excellent communicator."

"I worked with Tim Lillis on a major reworking of my home in Athens, Vermont. The project involved taking everything down to the studs, rearranging walls, adding a foyer/mud room, an attached garage with a deck on top, all new electric, plumbing, windows, roof, insulation, reusing old wood for floors and ceiling, strengthening the staircases, installing cabinets, building and installing bookcases, closets and storage cabinets and finishing floors and painting. For the first 8 months of the project, I was in New Jersey and only came up every 2 weeks or so. I provided detailed instructions, but there were many times when Tim had to intuit what I would want. He is a fine craftsman, a responsible worker, and smart enough to know what will work best, and when and who to hire as subcontractors. As an interior designer, I have high standards for any work done in my home. Tim and the people he brought onto the project did a wonderful job. He is a joy to work with!"

-Jane R., Athens, VT

"I hired Tim to build a deck off of my house. He exceeded my expectations. He was professional, personable, had great attention to detail and was very knowledgeable in his craft. The finished project was excellent! He is also prompt, trustworthy and efficient, and I do not hesitate to recommend him to friends."
