Testimonials — 

I would like to take this time to thank you and your staff for constructing my timber frame home. Every person who enters is in awe with the craftsmanship. What a pleasure it is to occupy such a lovely handcrafted home. The expertise, knowledge, information and enthusiasm you shared throughout this project made it not only fun and interesting but a memorable experience! Once again, thank you for going above and beyond - the finished product shows! I look forward to having you complete future projects at my home.

Brad is the consummate professional managing all aspects and subs of the project, from the broad ideas to the smallest details and from the earliest concepts to the final follow through. He is a pleasure to create with. He listened intently to our goals and ideas and developed those ideas further, with the result being better than we thought possible. Brad is an excellent craftsman, bringing creativity to every aspect of the building, with a wonderful eye toward use of local materials and a thorough understanding of energy conservation construction.

We found Brad to be the consummate professional. He lived up to every commitment, assured that his work was consistently exceptional, stayed open to making our slightly crazy ideas feasible and cost-effective, showed us where to save money, and he’s passionate about what he does. He has a fine aesthetic, which is far more than I can say about most contractors.

Just as important to us, he’s more than a just a great hammer-head. He’s intellectually gifted to chat about life beyond his tools and craft. And his wit is....well....you’ll get it after a day or two and really appreciate it. The guys on his crew are equally over-educated, and they love working with wood (the more challenging the situation the better). They are beyond competent and play well together.

If we decide to do another post & beam structure, either just frame or complete build-out, we’ll definitely go first to Brad

The crew of Uncarved Block practices woodcraft as it should be: with precision, as art, and with reverence for the material and the setting. Brad and his crew created beautiful work from native-sawn timbers that now stands as the frame for my house. They allowed me to work alongside them, learning and participating in the creative and joinery processes. As a result, I feel connected to my home and property in a way that would not otherwise be possible.

Brad Morse has been a phenomenal resource in the building of our timber frame. From design to his extraordinary capacity to coordinate the raising of the frame; to finishing the roof and exterior. He is a wealth of knowledge not only on the best of traditional building methods but state of the art environmentally friendly innovations that only add to the value of the home. He was an absolute pleasure to work with at every stage of our work from early planning, to hiring contractors, filing permits and ordering materials. Brad Morse and Uncarved Block is one of the gems of the Berkshires.

We are delighted with our beautiful, comfortable and functional home and garage built by Brad Morse of Uncarved Block, Inc. Throughout the construction process he was attentive to our thoughts and concerns. He has a calm way of interacting with people as well as an insistence on excellence. As a result, he was able to work with everyone involved to solve problems and answer questions as they arose. The house combines traditional construction methods with modern energy saving systems. Timber-framed trusses, using cherry, yellow birch, and beech timbers logged from our property, add beauty as well as support. In addition to the trusses, Brad and his crew constructed trim, floors, and cabinets from the remaining lumber. For the modern systems, he chose good subcontractors and supervised them closely. We recommend Brad Morse highly.

Learning from, and working with Brad was a pleasure. We cut a small tractor shed together, with Brad teaching me all of the techniques and tricks of timber framing. He is incredibly knowledgeable about both traditional and current building practices. I highly recommend him and Uncarved Block.
