residential construction services


Your home is the heartbeat of your family; it’s also an important investment. At Brenshaw Corporation, a fine custom home builder and general contractor, we provide full-service custom home construction services. Serving the Boston Metro West area of Massachusetts, we build homes from Hopkinton and Ashland to Wayland and Lake Cochituate, to Natick and Needham, and beyond.

We strive to make the homebuilding process simpler, and dare we say, pleasurable for our clients. A custom home build includes important decisions and choices, and we are here to collaborate with you to ensure we understand your new home goals, and your dreams. We will help you to understand the steps, the budget, and the unique options and trending appointments for you to consider.

Whether a modern farmhouse, sprawling family compound, stately golf course estate, or lakeshore retreat, we are committed to helping you realize the home you have been planning and imagining.

We are only as good as our last project and our grateful clients’ happiness. Brenshaw Custom Homes are quality homes built to reflect the personal vision of those who will inhabit them.

Home remodeling, additions, and major renovations are an integral part of the Brenshaw Corporation construction portfolio. As your needs evolve―the family is growing, you take up yoga…or the guitar, or you want a space designed for entertaining and entertainment―your home should be able to also. We have had the pleasure of undertaking a diverse array of renovation projects.

Let us handle your kitchen redesign, bathroom remodel, basement makeover, or something more comprehensive. See the Brenshaw transformation of an old garage space and its metamorphosis into a darling two-story carriage house. Click here to view the project.


  • What is the best way to begin communication about residential construction projects?
    Simple. You can email Brenshaw Construction to start the process of discussing your custom home construction or home renovations needs. Tell as a bit about your ideas and plans.
