Our Story

Whether it’s building a new house, an addition or the renovation of an existing home, all projects begin with a conversation. At Vath & Higgins Builders we work with our clients to develop and complete your vision. Many hours are spent with our clients to give shape to an idea be it new home or bunk house for the kids. We provide all aspects of planning and design support to our clients including architectural design and drafting, site surveying, and permitting including documentation and guidance for unique zoning requirements and variances. Our extensive building on Cape Cod enables us to make recommendations on choice of materials and suggestions for how spaces can be used both inside and outside. Our high-end custom cabinetry skills enable us to build just about anything from kitchen cabinets, home theaters, and libraries to playrooms. In short, if you have an idea we can build it.
