Our Story

Nate Holyoke Builders specializes in architecturally designed homes where craft meets design. We are a team of highly trained craftsmen, with a deep passion for quality woodwork, led by skilled support staff and a great team of sub-contractors. Our capabilities range from custom homes, renovations, millwork, timber frames, and arts & crafts with a high level of detail that lead to documented customer satisfaction.

We are well-known in Maine and point beyond for producing a high standard in the building trade. We work with architects, designers, and craftsmen from Maine and throughout the United States.

We settle for nothing less than the best outcome with an experience that is enjoyable for all. We work closely with the design team to create and craft dreams that come to reality. Our reputation for quality work, attention to detail, and creative problem solving have proven to be a success in creating custom projects for our clients.

“I can find no better builder or better person to work with,” Winkelman told me recently.

“Nate’s cup is more than half full, for sure, and it shows in his way of proactively offering solutions whenever he encounters a problem. This is the sign of a truly collaborative builder.”

Winkelman added, “His love of craft gets him – gets us – into all sorts of very good trouble.”
