Shepard Construction was recently featured in August 2021 Builder+Architect magazine.
Bob Shepard and the entire Shepard Construction Team were a pleasure to work with during planning, construction and the completion of our custom built home. Working with a family-run company gave us a much needed sense of comfort when embarking on the journey of builfing a home. From the first conversation we had with the Shepard Construction team we knew we were in good hands and that we could trust Bob and his team. The coordination and schedule for design, materials selection and installation could not have been managed better, which allowed us to meet or exceed critical milestones during the project. Bob and his team were in constant communication with us and provided first class service throughout the entire build process. Ultimately, Shepard Construction delivered our family the home of our dreams. We are forever grateful that we had such and incredible group of people to work with.

Judy and I enjoyed working with Bob and his team. As a commercial real estate investor with a firm that provides equity to operating partners, who develop and/or renovate properties, I am attuned to the challenges develop presents. In our case the challenges were exacerbated by the pandemic which constrained the availability of materials and labor. Bob was able to navigate these obstacles and deliver our home on time. He has been responsive any issues that arose both during and post-construction. As a builder you are only as good as your subcontractors and Bob was able to generally assemble a great team. Although we don’t plan to move any time in the near future, we would not hesitate to use Shepard Development again.
Charlie & Judy Flint
Building this home was a first for us. Bob and his team, especially Tim Grandy, knew this and took great care in walking us through the process as it unfolded. They creatively adapted to the many times we “changed our minds”. Post construction Bob steadfastly stood behind all the work done on his watch. When we had an issue with some windows, he made sure the manufacturer got it right. Bob made what could have been an overwhelming process exciting and fun.
Peter & Carla Barlow
We had no idea that building our family home would be such a joy! Bob Shepard and his team were fantastic to work with, incredibly organized, and efficient. We had an amazing full time project manager overseeing every aspect of the project. There was never a day without a full working crew on site, which saved us time and money! Their vast experience in building coastal homes allowed them to provide us with unique perspective and advice that we wouldn’t have had with other builders. Shepard Construction is now like family to us, and we actually miss having them around now that our home is complete!
Rob & Mauren Hayes
I am an Architect with a firm in Cambridge, MA; Carr, Lynch and Sandell, Inc. I have worked with Bob since 1985 on projects ranging from Caribbean Resorts to City Center revitalization plans, Restaurants, Commercial mixed use redevelopment master Plans and housing, including Multifamily, single family homes and historical restorations to homes from the early 19th Century. The common denominator running through all this work is the masterful construction that Bob and Judy bring to each project. Regardless of the scope, they treat each project and owner as a unique opportunity.
Incredible experience overall. Shepard construction completed a significant renovation/expansion project on our behalf. The expertise and guidance from design stage through completion was flawless. Guidance on how to modernize while maintaining the original character of our home yielded the result we were looking for. The ability to manage multiple contractors simultaneously and effectively kept the project on budget and on track time wise. Often we would have electrical, plumbing and woodworking going on in various parts of our home and when one specialty was finished the next contractor moved in. Polite, professional, sensitive to making the experience as comfortable for us throughout the installation and finish work made for a great and rewarding experience.
I am the President of a northeast community bank. Shepard Construction has done at least four significant commercial renovation projects for the bank. Each project had its share of complexity and challenges regarding work schedule. Work was frequently done nights or weekends to accommodate staff and customers. The work was always done on-time, on-budget and with first class workmanship. The owners and job supervisors are experienced and are able to offer numerous recommendations that aid in the project, budget and schedule. They are always sensitive to customer and staff. They are the best and most professional I have worked with.
We could not be happier with the way the renovation turned out and our experience working with your team. From the start we knew we were in good hands when you went out of your way to get the permit process started early for us and we still can’t believe we got through the renovation on time and on budget (with understandable change orders). Mike was a fantastic project manager - responsive, always willing to jump in and get his hands dirty to make sure work progressed and so pleasant to deal with on a day to day basis. It is hard to find the words to describe the overwhelmingly positive experience we had working with him - that’s saying a lot especially since we lived through a renovation with a toddler and pregnancy / newborn. We were also continuously impressed with the level of professionalism from your subcontractors. It is evident they all respect you and your company greatly. Again we can’t thank you enough and are already looking forward to when we have enough saved up to do our bathroom renovation with you guys!

I have worked with Bob and his crew at Shepard Investments in many different capacities. They are truly professional and knowledgeable. The product they put out is second to none. I have dealt with many developers, contractors and consultants and I can say; If you have Shepard investments constructing or involved your project you are in good hands.
Shepard Construction Built our home. They completed project on time. They were in control of the all the subs. They were professional and very competent. A very enjoyable experience and I would use then again .
I had a truly wonderful experience working with the whole team at Shepard Investments! They are professional, helpful and super fast! Can't get any better than that. Would highly recommend them for jobs big and small. Thank you Shepard Investments!
Shepard Construction recently renovated our entire house and we had an excellent experience. Their staff was impressive start to finish. Of all the bids we received theirs was the most detailed eliminating surprises. They finished one time! Our project has been complete since mid November and on Christmas Eve we oddly had no hot water. The owner, Bob Shepard, was at our house fixing the problem that evening after church. We were floored when he arrived and so very grateful. We left town the following day to visit family and our project manager spent several hours with a heating and air company, and a an electrician at our home to insure it didn't happen again. We have since returned to town and the same project manager arrived today to simply check in. We will use this company again and again. You should too!
