Proudly Serving Historical Building Enthusiasts Since 1999

Bill & Cheri Hardiman

30+ Years of Experience

Old New England Restoration Inc. is a general contracting business providing historical renovation, restoration and preservation services in Massachusetts since 1999. 


Bill Hardiman, President, is a veteran builder of more than thirty years, as of 2020. It is his continued mission to keep alive the best of New England’s historical dwellings and the integrity of fore-builders. The execution of the work, that he always leads, combines old fashioned ideals with current technology, thus creating his own contribution to history. Bill gives his personal guarantee to oversee each job with the same work ethic as those who built the antique homes that he is so passionate about working on.


Cheri Hardiman, Vice President, has a background in small business, education, social work and community leadership. She worked part-time for the business for 15 years but took on a greater role as CEO in 2015. Cheri’s areas of interest are development, contracts, marketing, human resources and design. In some cases, she can assist with grant-writing and fund-raising for non-profit projects.

Old New England Restoration is proudly a woman-owned small business.
