About Howell Custom Building Group


Founded in 1997 by husband and wife team, Stephen and Susan Howell, their vision was to utilize their professional backgrounds in engineering, project management, residential construction, and marketing to create a consistently great new home construction and home remodeling experience for homeowners on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

Hear from company owner, Steve Howell, what sets us apart from other home construction companies.

Professional planning keeps our projects on time and on budget, with no surprises, no regrets for the homeowners and design partners we serve.

For over 20 years, architects, interior designers and homeowners north of Boston have put their trust in us to professionally estimate, manage, and build everything from bathroom remodeling and kitchen renovations to new custom luxury homes. We have successfully built over 700 projects.

Our exceptionally disciplined project management approach ensures the smoothest possible progression of every project. Before pursuing his passion for building finely-crafted homes, Steve enjoyed a successful career with one of the world’s leading corporations, Hewlett Packard. Out of that experience, the exceptionally disciplined project management standard that is a hallmark of Howell Custom Building Group was born.

We believe that the best results occur when all team members collaborate at the project’s conception.

We put the best team together at the beginning of each project, and then work hand-in-hand with our partners as a design-build team to ensure spectacular results.  We are happy to work with your architect or introduce you to one of our design partners to build your custom new home or large scale home renovation.
