Bouffard & McFarland Builders has been the premier custom home builder in the Lewiston Auburn Area for over 30 years. Together, the owners Reginald Bouffard and Gary McFarland have more than 50 years of experience in the construction business.
Here at Bouffard & McFarland Builders we help you design the home of your dreams. Whether you come in with detailed plans of the house of your dreams or with nothing at all, we can help bring your dream to life. Since we specialize in custom home building, we work closely with each and every one of our customers to design a home with the amenities that are important to each individual. Every one of our customers sits with our architect to make sure that each and every detail in their home is designed to suit them.
We take pride in the quality craftsmanship that goes into each and every one of our homes. A Bouffard-McFarland Home is something that customers take pride in showing off to their friends and family. Our team of subcontractors and employees has worked with our company since the beginning. From painters to framers and drywall to plumbing and electrical work, we use the same crews on each project and have kept turnover of these subcontractors to almost zero, which is not something that many contractors can boast about. This ensures that the quality of our homes remains consistent. Our carpenters have had time to perfect their craft, and are able to build gorgeous cabinets and trim work that separates us from the competition and really “wows” our customers.
After working with Bouffard & McFarland, all of our customers tell us how great our customer service is. Kelsey Bouffard, Reggie’s daughter is in the office each and every day ready to help answer any questions or address concerns. She will help customers make important selections and make sure that all selections remain within budget and are selected in a timely manner so that the construction is not delayed because of late ordering of products. Throughout the building process, our team is only a phone call away, ready to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. When you visit the job sites, all of our employees and subcontractors are ready to answer any questions and walk you through the house so you can understand each stage of construction. Just look at our testimonial section to see examples of our superior customer service. Just one walk-through of any of Bouffard-McFarland’s houses and you will see why they are the premier custom home builder in the area.
Reggie has been building homes since he was a teenager with his father. He has diverse and extensive experience in the construction business. His attention to detail is the epitome of perfectionism. His expectations of his crews are to be precise and execute each project with pride. He will not allow anybody to leave a job site until the project has been completed to his high expectations. His pursuit of excellence in home building is what sets him apart from the competition. He oversees every project personally, and visits most projects daily so he can make sure everything is going according to plan. He frequently meets with customers to explain the process and the steps throughout construction.
Gary McFarland is integral to the success of Bouffard & McFarland Builders. He assists in land acquisition for customers, making sure to negotiate the best prices he can for our customers if they are in the process of purchasing land. He also makes sure to research each parcel of land to make sure that customers build on a piece of land that is valuable. Gary takes care of permitting and deals with the tedious paperwork that is involved in building a home. Many contractors leave this up to the customer. Bouffard & McFarland Builders knows our customers appreciate having someone to help take care of this piece of the process for them. Gary has been involved in the building business for years and works closely with the appraisers to make sure they have all of the information they need in order to obtain an accurate appraisal value of the projects.
Kelsey Bouffard is Reggie’s daughter. She grew up around the construction business and remembers going to job sites with her father as a little girl. She went to college and studied hospitality and worked in the hospitality business for ten years after college. Now that she is working for her father, she has brought some of that hospitality to the company. She goes to appointments with customers to help them select interior finishes. She keeps each customer updated on the progress of the home, and makes sure that all selections are made on time and are within budget. Throughout the construction process, Kelsey is always there to answer questions and keep things going according to schedule.
