The Sullivan & Forbes historic restoration construction process starts with listening to the customer’s vision and detailed planning. Our experienced restoration contractors inspect each element of the home to determine where structural improvements must be made and perform extensive preparation for any demolition that will take place.

This historic farmhouse in Dawsonville, Ga was built in 1837. Sullivan & Forbes worked with the owners to bring this home up to today’s standards without losing a bit of character.
Our Building Experience
Sullivan & Forbes is more than just a builder. Our custom cabinet shop and design team will assist you with coordinating fixtures and picking out a color scheme for your custom home. We’ll work to use existing materials wherever possible; refinishing original hardwood floors, reusing old stone work or bringing fireplaces back to life. If original materials cannot be used, we’re proficient in replicating historic construction methods.
For owners who wish to incorporate energy efficient elements into their historic home, Sullivan & Forbes will bring your home up to today’s standards and help you save on your energy bill.
