ONSBC were very responsive and accommodating to the needs of my buyer client throughout the entire build process. They provide superior quality and energy-efficient construction, are attentive to detail, and work with each individual lot to minimally impact the ecosystem surrounding the build. They are very conscientious and take pride in their work. I highly recommend ONSBC. Elizabeth Putnam, Mark Fields & Associates Realtors

I have personally worked with James to assist several of his new home buyers with mortgages. They couldn’t be happier with the look, quality and energy-efficiency of their new home built by ONSBC. In addition, he is so easy to work with, solving any issues with a positive can-do attitude. Linda Brandt, Mortgage Banker Atlantic Bay Mortgage
