When we decided to put an addition on our bungalow, we interviewed many different contractors and construction companies. We were most impressed with Woodsmith because he seemed to be the most realistic in terms of timing, and stressed that he would do his best to keep our project within our budget. Woodsmith was the only company of the seven we interviewed who could commit to giving us a detailed print out of all costs including materials, labour and his mark-up. We got these print outs every 2 weeks and found this to be super helpful as we were able to see where most of our money was going. The one time we had a concern, Chris was able to address it. Chris worked with the guy who did our drawings to ensure that we were doing the most with the money we had. In doing this we found ways of saving money which enabled us to actually add more square footage to the house.
Chris’ crew was both pleasant and professional. We had one issue with one of the sub contractors and when we brought it to Chris’ attention, he dealt with it immediately and ensured that we were happy and satisfied with the compensation.
Chris was such a pleasure to work with. Whenever we had questions or concerns, he answered them immediately and often came to meet with us. We have absolutely no hesitations at all in recommending Woodsmith Construction. Chris is more than just a contractor. He brings an excellent eye to a project and reassurance and patience when working with the customer.

We hired Woodsmith Construction and his team to turn the attic of our 1905 home to a master suite. In addition to the all-round good vibes we felt from Chris, he showed signs of being the most honest, capable, and confident in comparison to the other companies we interviewed. We felt like this was someone that we could trust with our savings and the future of our home.
Chris provided us with an itemized budget prior to the start of the renovation. From the beginning we could see clearly how much each portion of the project would cost. This was updated every couple of weeks to reflect the actual costs of the work that was completed or underway. This was extremely helpful and reassuring.
Woodsmith Construction also has a number of professional and courteous team members. We had an excellent experience with all the trades and sub-contractors that worked with Chris to make our home beautiful. Most importantly we are extremely happy with the workmanship and can tell that each member of the Woodsmith Construction team takes pride in creating quality spaces.
Our project was not lacking in obstacles along the way but ultimately we are delighted with the end result and would highly recommend Woodsmith Construction for any project.
Thank you Chris, Angelina and everyone at Woodsmtih for creating our dream space.

We worked with Chris for over a year as he and his team renovated our semi in the west end. It was a total gut job of an old house so had it challenges from the beginning. Chris was excellent at explaining the options and giving us pros and cons of each so that we could make informed decisions. Chris was always available during night or day to answer questions or return email. Chris was also excellent at managing our neighbours who proved quite problematic throughout the entire process. He always had an eye on the budget and timing and his projections were very close. His billing was transparent without any hidden costs. We continue to work with Chris and his team to this day on the update of our exterior.

The Woodsmith team did a phenomenal job of rebuilding our house to match our dream on-time and within our budget. Chris (the owner) was always accessible, open to ideas and patient with questions. This made all the difference for us. He understands that a job of this scale is something that an owner will likely only do once, and he offered great advice and put all our fears at ease. We constantly knew exactly how we were tracking to our budget (to the dollar) and our job site was clean and orderly at all times (which our neighbours very much appreciated). We were nervous about our year-long adventure in renos (we’ve all heard horror stories), but Chris helped us spread out decisions over time and provided clear options for any challenges his team encountered, making that year a surprisingly pleasant one. All of the work was top-quality and has garnered unsolicited positive comments from anyone who sees our home (including other contractors working in our neighbourhood). I have no problem recommending Woodsmith; you will be in very good hands.
Woodsmith Construction ReviewProject Date:Sept 2009Project Price: more than $50,000
“We were recently married and purchased our first home shortly after. We immediately decided that the kitchen had to be fully re-done, however, our finances we more than a little short at the time. Recommended to us by a friend, Woodsmith assessed the kitchen and developed a realistic budget schedule to fit our needs and financial situation. The end result was a spectacular kitchen which has increased the value of our home by $30,000.00, appraised this year. We were so happy with their performance and attention to our needs, that we are now looking to renovate the home for our expected child, and would think of using no one else.”
