We recently had the pleasure of working with master carpenter, Ewen Cameron. We contacted Ewen to replace our front steps and landing. He responded the same day was able to quickly provide us a clear and fair estimate… that in itself was a welcome change from other contractor experiences. We were most impressed with his structural concerns and how he integrated his work to complement the historic character of our house, along with our recently completed stone walkway. He also worked cleanly and fast… and always with a sense of humour. It was this refreshing work ethic and the excellent quality of the finished project that we really appreciated. We highly recommend him “officially” on Homestars… and have unofficially recommended him to all of our neighbours who’ve complimented the work as they pass by our house. Thank you again, Ewen!

Cathy & Adam contacted me with regards to a composite porch/stair project...
Their house was historic & beautiful, so our conversations centred on high-end, colour-specific composite materials. They chose a beautiful Dark Walnut-ish colour, which nicely complemented the darker brickwork (two-tone) while standing out beautifully against the lighter brickwork...
I also suggested raising the deck height, so that the step into the house didn't require Olympic-like hurdling skills anymore (south-facing covered entrance)!!! After I explained why prevailing weather patterns allowed for this to be done, they loved the idea.
With the plan in place, the installation went according to plan & schedule...They were wonderful people to work with, both of them being gregarious in nature, which is always a bonus. I hope to be able to enhance their fantastic home in the near future, should the opportunity arise.
