“Brian and his team completed some minor, and some not-so-minor, renovation work on our 18th century barn and spring house. His work is excellent, he is cost-effective, and he and his guys are a pleasure to have around the place. What more could you ask?”

“Brian Murphy disassembled and relocated a 19th century barn for me. He was dependable and professional - giving me a high quality job from start to finish.”

“The Mercer Museum is very lucky that Brian Murphy believes in sharing his skilled expertise and practical knowledge in timber-framing and early American construction with his community. He generously gives his input and energy to various Bucks County Historical Society projects, and he regularly demonstrates his trade for visitors to Mercer Museum, bringing to life our collection of wood-working tools.”
