About Us

Meet Cody and Hannah Guilford, owners of Heart and Hammer Homes, partners at home and at work. Cody is an experienced and talented builder and contractor, who is fabulous at taking Hannah’s designs and ideas and making them come to life. Hannah is an experienced and creative designer and contractor and the point of contact for our clientele, and together we are making our clients' dream homes a reality. 


Our Process

In four easy steps, let’s bring the heart back into your home!

Your home design and build experience will begin when you contact us and fill out our questionnaire—from there we will schedule an on-site or virtual consultation to get acquainted with your project location. We will then follow up with a design meeting to review your designs and plans. An experienced professional member of our team is happy to help bring the heart back into your home, curating a space that best represents your style and your family’s lifestyle. We strive to create purposeful and impactful design decisions and to implement them with the best quality products and contractors within your budget.

Time to bring your project to life!

*We can provide virtual design services anywhere in the continental United States. 

  We can provide full-service Design-Build for projects in Maine and New Hampshire.

All projects include the following design components:

  • 2D black & white floor plan and elevations.

  • 3D color rendered views with 1 top view and views of each wall in your space.

  • A project specification list including products, appliances, furniture and accessories.

  • A mood board to showcase colors, textures and finishes. 

  • Three video calls or in-person meetings with your designer (Initial consultation & discovery, initial review & final review)


Initial Consultation and Discovery

We want to make sure we are a good fit for your project. We will ask a series of questions and get to know you and your family to see if we are the best company to fulfill your wants and needs.


Project Estimate

Once we have all the details, we will get together your estimate, timeline, and anything else to scope out your project.

Project Consultations

Once we are all onboard, we will get together to dive into the nitty-gritty details.


The Finishing

Once your design-build is complete, we will finish up with the most homey touches to welcome you back into your space.

Our Guarantee

 We help our clients select flooring, cabinets, hardware, stone, tile, plumbing, and lighting selections along with home decor to decorate your spaces all in-house, or with local business partners. Heart and Hammer Homes is a small-town Maine company with roots that matter. We chose to grow our business here in the Mount Washington Valley because we think it is important to support and give back to our community whenever we can.


To do this, we have established local working relationships with other flooring, tile, and similar companies to ours whenever possible. These relationships are incredibly important to us because they not only help us meet all of your product or service needs but also help other local businesses to expand and grow as well. 


As a family-owned and operated business, we understand the importance of quality and trust, and we hope to be a local resource for not only your kitchen and bath remodeling products, but also for superior installation and service for years to come.

For design-only projects, we can provide materials to be shipped directly to you or we can provide a full specification list so that your contractor can purchase materials based on our designs.  We are happy to help our clients select and coordinate work with local builders and installers to bring your design to life.
