About FORM

FORM is a privately held company owned & operated by Dirk Murphy and Will Huggins, who together have more than 30 years experience in building and contracting.

Hands on expertise in all phases of construction.

Will Huggins
As a native “Mattapoisettian,” Will’s roots in the South Coast run deep.  Will attended Old Rochester Regional (Class of ’90 – Go Bulldogs!) and UMASS Dartmouth. Will started his building career in Nantucket working on high end, traditional New England Style homes.  Returning to the mainland, Will continued honing his building skills with local builders on both renovations and new construction before launching his own business under which developed a broad network of clients and subcontractors in the greater Mattapoisett, Marion, Rochester, Fairhaven, Dartmouth areas and Cape Cod.

Will and Dirk Murphy crossed paths several years ago. Realizing they had much common, Will and Dirk started collaborating on jobs under their independent business identities. This effort met with great success and they official merged as partners of FORM Custom Building and Renovations in 2011.

Will values craftsmanship and enjoys problem solving and implementing innovating building solutions.  He resides in Mattapoisett with his wife, Michelle, and their two young children.

Dirk Murphy
Dirk grew up in New York State and graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont. Dirk started building and remodeling in Jackson, Wyoming in 1992, affording him the opportunity to cut his teeth on high-end, state of the art homes. Eventually Dirk worked as a lead carpenter on several large projects for AGB Construction in Jackson, before building a spec home and launching his own business, Two Ocean Construction, in 1999.

In 2003, Dirk’s East Coast roots and family ties brought him to Mattapoisett. Dirk’s initial East Coast projects included three whole home remodeling projects giving him an appreciation and experience in the art of renovating older homes prior to launching Dirk Murphy Construction. Under Dirk Murphy Construction, Dirk developed a customer base ranging from Marion, Mattapoisett, Dartmouth & Nonquitt, and Westport to Little Compton, RI, Beacon Hill and Cape Cod.

Dirk met Will Huggins several years ago. Over the years they realized they had similar business goals. Suspecting a synergy that outweighed the individual parts, Dirk and Will started collaborating on their jobs under their respective independent business entities. This trial met with great success and in 2011 Dirk and Will officially merged as partners under FORM Custom Building and Renovations.

Dirk is committed to sustainable and energy efficient building. He is a BPI Certified Building Analyst trained to assess buildings for energy efficiency. Dirk has been trained in Air Sealing and Blower Door testing and was recently invited to give a presentation on Blower Door Testing at a Massachusetts Building Inspectors Conference.

Dirk resides in Mattapoisett with his wife, Sarah, and their two daughters.
