“Ryan-  Doug and I would like to express our complete satisfaction with our design, build and installation of our dream kitchen in Elliot Lake.

When we first met you at the Cottage Life Show we knew immediately that your style of design for our kitchen was what we were looking for. However we were concerned about the distance of our log house cottage in relationship to your business in southern Ontario where we also reside.

Your expertise with design and knowledge of wood and log homes made us feel very comfortable.
Doug’s desire to grain match stiles and rails was accommodated with enthusiasm and perfection and with the use of bird’s eye maple as an added wood feature was also a real treat for us.
With the finished product on route to Elliot Lake for the installation, we were thrilled to see a beautiful kitchen transform our log home, and it was the first time Ryan had been on site!
No worries with distance!!!! You accommodated every aspect of our design and build and the finished kitchen continues to get overwhelming positive comments on its beauty of the wood and design.
Your expertise in recommending my sink to match and the granite countertop, certainly was appreciated.
We love our kitchen! Thanks so much Ryan!  We would highly recommend your craftsmanship and skill to anyone requesting the beauty of a custom built kitchen!”
Lois and Doug Herter, Elora and Elliot Lake
“We met Ryan at the cottage life show in the fall of 2014. We were planning our new home build and looking for kitchen design ideas. Following the show we began discussions with Ryan, he quickly brought our ideas and concepts to life. Throughout the process Ryan was creative and patient working with us on changes as our overall home plan evolved. The end result was a high quality functional kitchen that has surpassed our expectation. Ryan’s practical and hands on approach was a breadth of fresh air! Thanks Ryan we are enjoying our dream kitchen!!”

“From beginning to end, our experience with Ryan was great. We first saw his work at the Spring Cottage Life show. He worked quickly to design our rustic cottage kitchen and install it by the July long weekend. He embraced the challenge of building on an island, loading all of his gear, his team and the pre-made cabinetry onto two boats for the 10 km ride to the island. We had a great time, despite the mosquitoes, finishing the project in just over a day. Every visitor we’ve had come in since the kitchen was installed, walks straight to the cupboards and asks ‘what wood is this’ and ‘who made this’? We truly feel that our kitchen is a work of art. Thank you Ryan.”

Ryan,
First of all, thank-you for the great job that you have done in our whole house! When people first walk in the front door and go to the kitchen, all you hear is “OH WOW, this is amazing!!!”. We wanted rustic with some country in it and that was definitely achieved!!! The laundry room, is so nice to work in, even though it is not the nicest job. The bathroom cabinets, we love every one of them, especially that they are all so different! There has been so many comments on everything you have done and the amount of people that have said, “Who did the cabinets”? You would not believe. Then, the furniture, the rustic coffee table and of course, the bunk beds, love them! Thanks again for all your hard work and working with us to get exactly what we wanted! – Kees & Amanda Hogendoorn from Baden

Dear Ryan.
We wanted to say thank you for the fantastic kitchen that you made for us. As with many renovations this one certainly did not come without its challenges. We would like commend you on your tenacity and patience as well as attention to detail. It would be very easy to just say “that’s good enough” but you are certainly not that type of contractor and we thank you for that. We have had so many compliments on the quality and design that already people have been requesting your number from us for their future plans. We have absolutely no reservations in recommending your services. Should a potential client ever ask to speak with someone with whom you have worked for in past, please feel free to have them contact us. – Rob and Lyn from Hockley Valley.

Ryan-
Everyone who walks into our house pretty much says the same thing: Oh my God – this is beautiful. Who did your kitchen for you? My husband and I are both very pleased with and proud of our new kitchen; we have only been talking about it for 20 years! The final product is better than we had imagined; the quality and finish is amazing. Ryan was very patient with us throughout the entire project, taking time to incorporate our ideas into his design and explain the process entirely. Every morning I walk into my new kitchen and look around with amazement because I still can’t believe this is mine. Sheila & Mark from St.Clements

Having seen Ryan’s excellent work on the kitchen of our good friends, we were quite eager to work with him towards obtaining our own dream vision…and we were not disappointed. Through careful and thorough consultation, he took our ideas and partnered them with his own excellent recommendations to create a design that we loved in its entirety. Furthermore, his careful and thorough approach was not limited to the design phase. The installation was as meticulous and dedicated as his design. In fact, his approach was so detail oriented and his desire to please and leave nothing unfinished obvious. Even going so far as to spend extra time researching several specialty items for us. Needless to say, we would wholeheartedly recommend him. Walter and Cathy from Hockley Valley.

Hi Ryan,
Just wanted to let you know that we love our kitchen and are extremely happy customers!!!! You provided us with great ideas on how to redesign our kitchen area that would increase the functionality, give additional space and improve the overall image of our home. Your expertise and knowledge of the housing markets resulted in us having a kitchen that not only looks great but is organized in a way that makes sense for us or a future homeowner! The service and result we received makes it very easy for us to recommend you work, we are so happy with how things turned out – it definitely exceeded our expectations! It’s certainly worth the phone call to get your point of view! and again we Love our new Kitchen! Deb and Dwight from Arthur
