For more than 30 years, Underhill Center builder Tom Moore has built his reputation on the details. Whether constructing complete structures, doing renovations, or creating custom interiors, Moore, 50, puts his signature craft into everything from countertops to cabinetry, and raised panel walls to coffered ceilings, in expertly blended natural woods, stone and tile. It’s the kind of attentive work that has earned Tom Moore Builder, Inc. a total of 12 “Better Homes” awards in the last four years from the Homebuilders and Remodelers Association of Northern Vermont.

You’d think Tom Moore could rest on his laurels. But last year, in keeping with his philosophy that “every home I build, I try to make better,” Moore researched a book called The Not So Big House by Sarah Susanka. The book’s premise – build the sturdiest, most comfortable and detailed house for the budget, instead of the biggest house – struck a chord.
