Second Story Addition / Renovation: Brewster, MA

This is a project we completed in the Spring of 2010. What started out as a small ranch turned into a beautiful custom 4 bedroom home. Highlights of the project include a geothermal system installed by Atlantic Well Drilling which both heats and cools the home without any direct consumption of fossil fuels. The homeowners are wonderful people and are very pleased with how the project turned out.


“We undertook a major renovation to our home in Brewster and added an entire second floor. The project was quite involved, including a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System and minimal heat loss design. Paul van Steensel, the owner of Cape Dreams Building & Design, won our confidence in the process leading up to our choice of a contractor. It was the best decision we made. Paul and his team at Cape Dreams proved themselves to be a highly-skilled craftsman, determined to help us realize our vision for our home. Paul was unfailingly patient and wonderfully communicative. We live four hours away so we had to depend on Paul to be vigilant in protecting our interests as well as to alert us every time a significant choice or question arose. Our trust was well-earned. Paul takes great pride in his work. He is a savvy partner who helped us uncover ways to save money when it did not alter the core of what we hoped for, and alerted us to opportunities where a modest investment today would pay off for many years in the future. If we ever have need again of a contractor there will be no deliberation: We’ll call Paul van Steensel immediately.”
