Tarkka Homes was rated at the highest level for client satisfaction by the Houzz community. Awarded on January 14, 2018
We believe there are two equally important aspects of delivering the best residential construction. The product has to be expertly installed and that’s half of the job. The other half is to provide the best experience possible for the client. The home owner should feel informed and in control. A truly satisfied client enjoys both quality in the construction and a great experience during the project. Tarkka Homes has been building fine homes and distinctive remodels throughout southern New Hampshire since 1990. We are proud members of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), NH Home Builders Association (NHHBA), Greater Manchester-Nashua Home Builders & Remodelers Association (GMNHBRA) and the Contoocook Chamber of Commerce in Hopkinton, NH.

The experienced team at Tarkka starts very early in the design process to discover how you live in your home, how you use different rooms and what you want from your living space. We deliver a truly custom design that exceeds expectations while staying within your budget, delivering a home that is unique to you.
Like our custom homes, clients come to Tarkka to assist them with transforming their existing spaces. Today’s families often consider adding separate living areas through an accessory dwelling unit or you may be ready for a new or larger garage. At Tarkka Homes, we give the same consideration for these projects as our custom home designs.
TO BEGIN, we meet with potential clients to discuss the general parameters of a project, talking about design elements, budgets and the construction process. We use photos, example documents and building plans to familiarize you with what we build and how we build it. Once we have a basic understanding of what you would like for a home or major remodeling project, we can start to develop specifications and an estimate. We use these preliminary consultations to explore the possibilities of your building project. Early visioning sessions are important to get your building project started on the right track.
IF YOU NEED LAND, we are available to visit properties that you are interested in or we can propose a land search service to identify the high quality lots that fit your needs. Suitability of the site for the type of home proposed is vital. We are very familiar with land and the hidden costs that you need to know about before you commit.
YOUR HOME DESIGN begins once we have the parameters and budget of the project laid out. We design floorplans and we have great relations with architects for clients who want added consultation and WOW factor. Estimate updates coincide with plan changes to keep you in control of the construction budget.
FINALLY WE BUILD YOUR NEW HOME or remodeling project according to the plans and specifications that we have developed. You stay informed on the progress of the work and the selection items that you need to provide. We assist our clients with the tough decisions of custom selections through expert consultations with trusted suppliers.
Paul and Matt have been exceptional in making my dream home a reality. I had a vision and strong views of the modern day bungalow that I wanted to build. They have worked with me at every step to create the sense of style that I wanted, yet would always point out things that would not work or make suggestions. Paul was willing to let me go through his usual vendor or to let me supply some of the finish items like lights, tile, hardwood, cabinets and faucets that are so important to creating a style. They have also been extremely responsive in answering questions, Paul in particular. If you send him three questions, he will answer all three. They kept the project moving and were great at finding work-arounds when subs became unavailable to keep on track. Everyone that has seen the house comments how truly special it is. The vision may have been mine, but they made it work.
In 2015, Tarkka Homes helped us through our first major home renovation. The result was a dream kitchen that we enjoy every day.
Paul listened carefully to our ideas and came up with an outstanding design. Matt and his crew delivered on time, and with attention to detail. They were both very responsive to follow up items to close out the project.
Paul and his team are great. Building a home can be a very difficult process but Paul makes it easy and enjoyable. We love our home. Everything was completed on time and within budget. We have a very high quality home. We have been in the home two years now and are still thrilled. Everyone is extremely professional.
Paul Morin, owner of Tarkka Homes, has designed and built our waterfront home. My wife and I are enthusiastically pleased with Paul and his staff. We highly recommend Tarkka Homes. We met Paul after hearing him speak at a Home Show in Manchester, NH. Paul’s “How to hire a contractor” presentation was perfect for us as we decided whether to build a new home. Paul has a very comfortable and confident manner, and after considering other builders, we chose Tarkka Homes. Paul stayed within our agreed budget. The quality of work and material in our home is exceptional. Paul’s professionalism, knowledge, and suggestions on design and enhancements resulted in a home in which we are extremely proud.
Paul and his staff went above expectation to first create then build the home of our family’s dreams. Although we were met with many challenges along the way, Paul and his foreman Matt, help to solve all problems with creative and professional solutions. We are still there today and have not needed to address one issue from construction. I would highly recommend Tarkka Homes!!
Paul and his team at Tarkka built our “craftsman” style home just over two years ago. We cant say enough about the quality and the workman ship that went into it. Usually several years in is when the trouble spots show up, nothing here… only nice comments from our friends and relatives as to how beautiful the home is. Paul is a caring business man,- one who focuses on getting the job right— but right on schedule! If you contact Paul, I would be happy to let you tour-
We contracted with Paul Morin/Tarkka Homes to build our first home. Any trepidations anticipated with this undertaking were unwarranted – Tarkka Homes is an outstanding, full-service, professional company. Paul is extraordinarily knowledgeable, helpful with recommendations and decisions, delivers everything promised – on budget and on time (no surprises!). It was an enjoyable experience and we highly recommend Tarkka Homes.
