Woodstock Building Associates

Is your home in need of renovations? Do you know someone who needs an addition to their house? Maybe you’ve been in contact with contractors, construction crews or builders? If any of the above apply to you, Woodstock Building Associates (WBA) is the next phone call you want to make.


WBA has been in business for 44 years. They began their ventures in Woodstock, CT and in 2018 branched out to open an office in Franklin, MA. The company made the decision to diversify and expand in Franklin at the suggestion of Architect and WBA manager Steven Keene. Keene is a resident of Franklin, so he holds the town near and dear.
Many of the homes in Franklin were built between the 1950s and 1980s. The homes are often in need of renovations and/or additions. WBA specializes in bathroom and kitchen renovations and additions like porches, decks and sunrooms. What Keene has noticed in his 12 years with the company is that folks in their 30s and 40s are generally looking for updates or additions to their homes, allowing them space to expand as their families grow. Those in their 50s and 60s have generally been in their homes for an extended period of time, and look for accessible spaces like bathrooms and kitchens to be renovated, or additions of sunrooms are very popular, as they are a place that allows for great amounts of natural light and extra space for family gatherings.
What makes WBA different from other companies? For starters, they are not solely interested in swinging the hammer. They have a highly qualified team. Their in-house kitchen designer has over 20 years experience. The architects, designers, estimators and project administrators are all on staff with WBA. WBA also employs superintendents who are “boots on the ground” according to Keene. These superintendents, along with carpenters and apprentices, advocate for every client, from start to finish of their project.
WBA is considered a “one stop shop”. They are with the client on planning and budgeting, permits and construction. They enlist professional specialists in their trades, provide all materials and are present until project closeout and beyond.
With WBA there are no surprise costs come the finalization of a project. They consult with the client during each phase of the renovation and consider them to be part of the team. “If it wasn’t for our clients, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do,” Keene says.
WBA ensures that every project is treated with individuality. They go above and beyond on every build, treating your home like it is their own. If an issue arises, they will be there to help find a solution.
“Our main goal is happy clients,” Keene emphasizes.
