Spec Home Builders

A spec home (speculative home) is a move-in ready home to appeal to customers who may not have much time to wait for a custom home. Spec homes are available when we have land or lots for sale with a home we have already started to build or are planning to build. Depending on the stage the customer purchases the home, they may make interior selections such as kitchen, flooring, and wall color. We build the house and do all the thinking, and you move into your brand-new home!

I contacted Fab along with multiple other contractors to interview for this project. After meeting Fab, I felt very confident with him due to his knowledge, but more importantly his honesty. I had him quote the project and his prices were very reasonable.


My husband Jim and I had a new year round home built by Bethal Builders on property we own on Merrymeeting Lake in New Durham NH. We had a great experience with owner Fab Cusson, his close knit workers, and his sub-contractors.


I had owned a place on Bow Lake for a number of years and was watching it fall apart around me. I wanted to find a local builder and my search turned up Fab Cusson of Bethal Builders. I am so glad it did!
