You have good taste. Those are nice looking houses.
But I cannot vouch for their quality.
There are a number of other builders and architects that specialize in reproduction homes, too, just avoid the ones who claim to be traditional, but whose designs look like cartoon houses meant to appeal to McMansion tastes.
Other thing is there might be a limite as to how far into Maine a reproduction builder will construct a home. Seems that many, if not all, in the reproduction business are located closer to Southern and Western Maine, because that's the biggest market for their specialized product.
If you're thinking of buying plans and then finding a builder, I would wonder how many builders these days can construct elements of a traditional house, like eve returns instead of those awful pork chop shaped things, competently.
