"Working with Artisan Builders has always been a positive experience.  Their high quality design and workmanship stands out from the many builders and contractors there are to choose from.  The baseline products that they select are of high quality and integrate impressively into their design practices.  The structures they build resemble beauty, efficiency and longevity.  On top of this sound foundation of design and product selection, they are very knowledgeable about their field and pleasant to work with. There are few builders that offer such well rounded advantages."

“Working with Artisan Builders relieved us of needing an architect. They asked all the right questions to make sure we had thought about every detail, and made practical and aesthetic suggestions. We are very happy in our energy efficient, functional, and beautiful home.”

“Artisan Builders was helpful in more ways than building. They helped plan and design the renovation of our farmhouse, so we didn’t need an architect. They offered educated recommendations for the most efficient and healthy insulation and other materials. Our house works efficiently in all seasons: cool in summer, warm in winter without much heat input. They have great ideas and are fun to work with.”


Rebecca Goldfine, West Bath

“We interviewed a handful of builders to find the best team to build us an energy-efficient, super-insulated home that was charming and within our budget. When we met the Fulfords, it was clear within five minutes of sitting down with Gilbert and his father, Jonathan, that we wanted to work with their company, Artisan Builders. Gilbert, who became the lead person on our project, is not only a talented carpenter and home designer, but he's also easy to work with and very conscientious. The care he and his crew took throughout the project resulted in a lovely little home that is comfortable and inexpensive to heat. We love it very much! In the end, our costs came in very close to the original estimate.”



Jim Merkel, Belfast

“Working with Gilbert on our off-the-grid super-insulated house in Belfast has been a sincere pleasure. He is highly skilled and very knowledgeable in the field of high-performance, healthy and green buildings. Further, Gilbert is organized, keeps a neat worksite, is strong and gets a lot done. Now, a year into our sunny, warm, beautiful home, we look back and have only positive experiences of working with Gilbert.”

“We have employed Artisan Builders for renovation of an old farmhouse and for building a high performance home from design to completion. It is hard to say all of the good things we want to about Gilbert Fulford and his crew in just a few lines!We love our simple and beautiful off-the-grid house built by the aptly named Artisan Builders. They are accomplished in a range of skills from design, both of overall function and of the aesthetic details that distinguish a unique home, to framing, coordinating with subcontractors and installation of finishing details.  We were impressed with the accuracy and attention to detail in all aspects of their work.As a group the Artisan Builders were a pleasure to be around day after day, professional, hardworking, respectful and cohesive as a team. They included us in their crew, coordinating and providing technical support to allow us to do the finishing work we wanted to do; they worked comfortably with the subcontractors we chose for the solar hot water and off-the grid electrical systems. We started with some rudimentary sketches and a concept. Artisan Builders made them into the home we envisioned. It is a delight to appreciate in the everyday the planning and proficiency that turn a good idea into a well-working high performance home.”
