About »

Founded in 1973, Roundtree Construction is a Vermont-based general contracting firm, responsible for building many of the area’s finest homes. Roundtree Construction specializes in architect-designed houses, renovations and additions, as well as historic restorations.

Whether you are looking to build a new home or renovate an older one the common thread to our project is &hellips; quality. The emphasis on quality is where it begins and ends for us. Quality materials, thoughtful planning, attention to detail, and craftsmanship are attributes brought to every Roundtree Construction project. If you have an architect you are working with we welcome that. If you need recommendations on an architect we can assist with that as well and if you need a builder that offers design & drafting services that is somethin we do as well.

Roundtree Construction works with industry-leading architects, both local and national, to bring unmatched craftsmanship, unrivaled attention to detail, and unparalleled artistry to fashion and fabricate award-winning structures.

As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Roundtree Construction is committed to the green­building movement by constructing homes that embody those principles, and working in correlation with Efficiency Vermont, Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, LEED for Homes, and Vermont Energy Star Homes.
