Steve has built custom residential homes since 1981. Early in his career, Steve apprenticed with a nationally known master restorationist and worked on restoring mansions and early American homes  in southern Massachusetts.  During this time, Steve learned the construction techniques required to build homes that withstand the test of time and maintain their beauty.  Many of the houses you see on this website were built years ago and yet still look as good as the day they were built.

Business Description & Philosophy:

The Chardon Construction shop and office is located in Franconia, NH. We are exclusively residential home builders. Our goal is to build exceptional quality homes for our customers and we accomplish this by giving each project our full attention. We hire sub-contractors for the obvious trade portions of our projects; however, the majority of the work is kept "in-house" - most importantly, all the interior finish work. We take great pride in the quality of our product and our customer satisfaction. We feel that the success of our efforts is reflected in our customer referrals.

In-House Designs:

Steve has 24 years of design experience and prides himself in working with customerís goals and desires in the joint endeavor of creating a new home. The design/build process is purposefully "hands-on" for the customer. Many of the homes you see on this web page were designed by Steve.

Designs by Others:

Chardon Construction is equally interested in building homes designed by others. Often times, our customers have a particular house plan they like, or would prefer to engage the services of an independent architect. We welcome the opportunity to be a part of either of these situations.
