Restoration projects present many unique challenges. Cobb Hill understands the balance that must be attained between historic preservation, modern functionality, and cost. Adaptive reuse is achieved while restoring as much of the original character as possible. Sensitive rehabilitation of a structure is accomplished while completely upgrading all mechanical and electrical systems. Many of our projects have benefited from the assistance of the staff at the NH Preservation Alliance, as well as other preservation consultants.
First Church of Christ, Scientist
Cobb Hill Construction has been selected to complete a number of restoration projects at the Church in the past few years, but the current project is the most challenging.
historic KITCHEN REMODEL

The New Hampshire Governor's Mansion, known as "Bridges House", is the official residence of the Governor of New Hampshire and the governor's family. The Bridges House, located in Concord, has served as the governor's official residence since 1969.
