I had the best experience working with Tom and Lelee. I had purchased a new home and had four months to renovate it and move in. The work on the house was quite extensive as I put an addition onto the house and also renovated the kitchen, baths and bedrooms as well as adding a patio. The quality of the work was exceptional and within budget. The subcontractors were all wonderful gentlemen and I was truly sad to see them go when the project was finished. I could not recommend Tom and Lelee more. They turned what could have been a stressful experience into a pleasurable one.
We are happy to show the house to your prospective clients any time. We love the house, being in it, around it and dream of it when we are not here.
Though we’ve thanked you countless times in person, we wanted to take the opportunity and memorialize our gratitude. We’ve been in our home for nearly 17 months and barely a day goes by that we donǯt admire its beauty and craftsmanship. What a wonderful place to raise our family and live out our lives. We often reflect on the entire building process from our initial meeting at your office, to developing the floor plan / exterior and our many site meetings when construction was underway.
As we enjoy entertaining and sharing our new home with friends and family, we’re often asked if building was a horror story and whether we still get along with our builder. On the contrary, we
say… Our builder was great. We loved the process and would do it again in a heartbeat!
While there are many builders out there, I’m confident that few incorporate the degree of professionalism, accountability and attention to detail that we experience with you and the entire Salisbury Country Homes staff. Your reputation as a premier builder is well deserved!
In dealing with Tom Francoline and his Salisbury Country Homes staff, we found that they do stand behind their words. They worked diligently with us through designing and building our house and landscaping the site. They were not only available during every step of the project, but they have followed up through the years since we moved in.
Their architectural designs for the interior and exterior areas were outstanding. In our case, the interior provides comfortable, elegant living spaces that fit our everyday lifestyle, as well as providing outstanding entertaining areas. Regarding their site and elevation work, they took advantage of every bit of the property site and elevation in developing the building site and paid particular consideration to providing tremendous natural light and views.
The subcontractors they used were all professional craftsmen, and the SCH Project Managers paid attention to every detail of their work, down to the finest points. We were involved at each step in the process. Tom Francoline was personally involved with the design and implementation details, especially with the kitchen that resulted in an unusual, elegant area. We found that the Project Managers’ suggestions always added something to the plan.
Tom Francoline and Tom Dionne (Our major Project Manager) were outstanding!
Our building experience with Salisbury Country Homes was truly enjoyable. From initial planning until completion of our home, we experienced great communications and teamwork with owner Tom and project manager Colleen. We asked for many custom changes to the original plans, and SCH worked with us to incorporate our ideas and make our new home our own. From start to finish, we were afforded every opportunity to be involved in the process and were treated with respect. We loved the professionalism and expertise of each craftsman and
appreciated their desire to create our dream home. After living in the house for several years, we continue to recognize the high standards SCH applied to the design, building, and finishing touches that contribute to our total delight with our house.
Hello my name is David Bub. I own Bub Brothers Drywall LLC in East Granby, CT. I have had the pleasure of doing the drywall work for Tom Francoline for now 30 years. I say pleasure because if I ever solicit work from other builders and they ask for references I always say proudly that I do all of Tom’s drywall. Enough said I get instant credibility. I have always enjoyed my interaction with and consider Tom Francoline a mentor. He has taught me so many things without knowing.
Being in the construction industry for over 25 yrs. and working with numerous general contractors I feel Salisbury Country Homes is one of the premier builders in the state.

Their project managers work closely with customers and subcontractors to complete the projects correctly, on time, and within budget. I’m proud to be part of the team.
