ADE Design Build


ADE Design Build is a Maine-based firm that designs custom, high-quality, detached single family living spaces. ADE Design Build works with architects, designers and engineers on projects large and small to meet our clients' needs.

Because we both design and build we pay attention to the larger design picture as well as to day-to-day construction details, both of which are important to the ultimate success of your project.

Our entire business process is client-focused, ethically grounded and enables us to provide the highest quality service possible. This includes maintaining strict client confidentiality. We look forward to working with you.

 Company Profile

ADE Design Build's first project was in 1977.

One of the primary goals of our company is to design and build beautifully conceived, extremely well constructed, user-oriented living spaces. These spaces incorporate the best of the latest technologies (such as sophisticated sound control techniques) as well as traditional and contemporary building practices and materials.


We utilize a collaborative/team approach. Our team consists of:·

  • A small, experienced, highly knowledgeable core group

  • Select, specialty subcontractors who are well known to us and able to meet our exacting standards. With many years of experience in their respective fields, our carpenters, plumbers, drywall crews, electricians and numerous other expert subcontractors provide you with the courteous, skilled and reliable service your new home or remodel project deserves.

  •  We Offer:

     Feasibility Studies

    If you are not certain whether the work you are envisioning is possible or practical, we are available to do detailed feasibility studies. We will look at the many options available to determine which is the most feasible approach for your particular requirements.

     Land Site Development

    We strive for creative and sensitive design solutions that are beautiful as well as functional, are environmentally sound, and provide the best possible living and working environment. Our professionals work as teams, with team size and composition determined by the needs of each project.

    We can either help you find the land you will need to build your home or we can work with you to develop the land you already have.

     Master Planning

    In all the work we do, we emphasize long-range master planning, so your designs work now and in the future. If a project is to be built in several phases, we plan and organize carefully in the initial stages, so the work can proceed smoothly from one construction phase to the next.

     On-Time Scheduling

    We control the flow of our projects, so that we can give you the specialized attention you deserve. We are very proud that our projects are completed on time.

     Sound Control

    We have extensive experience and knowledge in providing acoustical sound management. Sound Control services include noise and vibration measurements, design review, recommendations, computer modeling and prediction.

     Onsite Construction Supervision

    We serve as your on-site advocate and provide direct supervision of our contractors to ensure that work proceeds in accordance with your intended scope, schedule, and budget. This precludes the need for your involvement in routine matters of contractor supervision.

     Budget Control

    Our experience in contracting and construction gives us detailed knowledge of all cost considerations. We have the ability to work within a wide range of budgets. Because we design with your budget in mind, then oversee all phases, we keep on track with your budget, as the project moves from one phase to the next.

     Quality Control

    Our expertise and experience allows us to provide quality control procedures throughout the entirety of the building process that ensures the highest levels of construction practices.

     Personal Attention

    We communicate closely with our clients and return all calls and messages promptly. Part of our pleasure in the work we do is taking the time to work collaboratively with our clients, paying personal attention to your needs, desires, time frame and budget. We are committed to gaining a thorough understanding of your tastes, daily life patterns, and the qualities of home that you wish to enhance. With your input and ideas, we design and then build that which fits your unique life style.

      "ADE eHouse"

    You may well have heard of the TV series "This Old House". ADE Design Build wants to provide you with an insider's look at the building of one of our projects from inception to completion. We call this our "ADE eHouse".

    This section of our website that will be designed to demonstrate the versatility of ADE Design Build in the custom home, residential, design build field. The site will give you a first hand look at a project as it is being built and the steps it takes to accomplish the various tasks.

    We know how difficult and imposing building a home can be. "ADE eHouse" will help you learn how to navigate through the intricacies that are a part of the process. Whether you are a prospective client, building your own home or simply interested we think that "ADE eHouse" can provide valuable information for you.

    We will be regularly adding pictures and text to this site in the "ADE eHouse" and "eHouse Photos" sections as the project takes form. Please stay posted.
