A Little History
| Homeowners are increasingly interested in renovating their existing homes and more and more homeowners are discovering the collective talent at H.J. LeBoeuf &Son, Inc. to do this important work.
Renovations and additions present their own unique set of challenges. At H.J. LeBoeuf & Son, Inc. we have always taken pride in our ability to integrate our clients’ requirements with the character of the existing house and landscape.

No matter how large or small the project, we apply the same quality of construction, attention to detail and focus on energy-efficiency.
| H.J. LeBoeuf & Son, Inc. has been designing and building new homes in the extended Champlain Valley region of Vermont for decades. The styles of these homes include traditional Federal style Vermont farmhouses, more formal Classic Revival homes, Capes, lakeside shingle style retreats, and contemporary homes.
The "design-build approach" to building solidly connects professional design with construction expertise. You enjoy greater continuity of service when you have one expert company handling both design and construction. This arrangement also saves time and money and ensures that you have a true partner in the construction of your home.
H.J. LeBoeuf & Son, Inc. utilizes a state-of-the-art computerized cost control system that allows for itemized monitoring of each project on a task-by-task basis including a breakdown for labor and materials. This system is an excellent management tool and provides a constant picture of a project's costs-to-date.
| Chances are you have found yourself inside an historic building in Vermont that was renovated by H.J. LeBoeuf & Son, Inc. The firm was naturally drawn into restoration work in the mid-1970s when Vermont's restoration movement was in its early stages. We became involved with a variety of restoration projects in Vergennes, Vermont ranging from brick and mortar projects to comprehensive Main Street revitalization plans.
H.J. LeBoeuf & Son, Inc. has been successful in completing renovations and restorations in a variety of high-profile "public" buildings such as the Ethan Allen Homestead, and the Hotel Putnam-Penny Saver complex in Bennington, Vermont, among others. Perhaps our most public restoration project is the Vergennes Opera House/City Hall, which has spurred a significant and successful revitalization of the Vergennes Main Street business district. The successful restoration and reopening of the Vergennes Opera House has become a benchmark for small town revitalization efforts in Vermont.
|In 1888, C. L. LeBoeuf moved with his family to Vergennes, Vermont from Albany, New York, to start a career in construction. This began the LeBoeuf family tradition of excellence. Norman’s grandfather, Howard LeBoeuf, Sr., changed the company name to H. J. LeBoeuf & Son, and Norman’s father, Howard LeBoeuf, Jr. continued the name, which remains to this day. The projects shown here were completed by preceding generations, and represent the rich building history of the family business.|
