Custom Homes

Hayward & Company homes are the result of a combined effort between the client and us. Since all our homes are custom, they are designed and constructed for you and only you. The close relationships we have with our clients allow us to control costs, manage timelines and ultimately create a structure which will last for generations.

Hayward & Company specializes in the following construction types:

  • Traditional Timber Frame
  • Hybrid Post & Beam
  • Traditional Log
  • High Performance Conventional

Here is a little about each…

Timber Frames

These unique and beautiful houses speak for themselves.  Traditional timber frames are a wonderful choice for the client who would like multiple options for the interior and exterior finishes.  Our timbers are created from the best solid fir, pine or oak timbers available.


With a timber frame home the frame is only one part of the story – the Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which comprise the home’s walls and ceilings create the ultimate high performance home with energy efficiency which is unmatched in the residential construction industry.  Trust your timber frame project to Hayward & Company’s experience and unparalleled quality.

Hybrid Post & Beams

These homes wonderful choice for the client who likes the warmth of wood but not to the extent of a traditional log and who loves the clean design of a timber frame but are looking for a cost conscience alternative to a traditional frame.  Our hybrid solution is truly a beautiful choice with endless options for your home’s exterior and interior.


The heart and soul of our Hybrid Post & Beams is the Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which can comprise the homes walls and/or ceilings.  Constructing with SIPs creates the ultimate High Performance Home (HPH) with energy efficiency which is unmatched in the residential construction industry.

Log Homes

Traditional log homes have stood the test of time and provide a living environment which cannot be duplicated with any other construction method.  With us you have access to multiple different log manufacturers so we can ensure the right match for your traditional log home project.  The material choices are extensive and we work with you to make to proper choices while remaining conscience of costs.


Demanding high construction standards are essential to a highly energy efficient log home.  Hayward & Company’s staff are leaders in the log home construction industry.  All our log homes go through the strict Energy Star rating process with the goal of achieving a 5+ Star rating.  Log homes we construct not only look beautiful, they perform beautifully year after year.

High Performance Conventional

Driven by the demand of our clients, we have completed many traditional framed homes.  By far the most recognized form of construction in New England, conventionally framed homes have advanced with the times.  At Hayward & Company we take the time to achieve the most energy efficient shell possible through proper product selections and air sealing during construction.  These homes have ultimate design flexibility both on the interior and exterior.


Just like our wood homes, our conventionally framed homes are custom designed and finished to our client’s specifications.  Our goal is to create the most durable and comfortable home possible.

All our homes are built to the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) and Energy Star® Standards.
