Island TimberFrame Ltd.
Home Builders in Nanaimo, BC
"ITF designed and manufactured all the timber frame, roof structure, interior doors, front door and railing/stairs for our new contemporary oceanfront home. They installed all the timber frame and roof structure, while coordinating with my general contractor Travis Deeble construction. They were easy to work with, professional and punctual with their manufacturing of products. There attention to detail was amazing. Over sized doors, crisp lines and appropriate dimension of huge timbers. In my mind this project has a slight Asian feel while balancing contemporary with some traditional beech home feel. Check this house at www.islandtimberframe.com in the residential portfolio. this house company deserves a award."

Emperor Homes Ltd.
Home Builders in Nanaimo, BC
"I recently contracted Emperor Homes to tear down my existing porch and rebuild it with an added shed. Due to the shape of my lot, it was not an easy project but Michael worked with me every step of the way to overcome any and all challenges. Not only am I extremely pleased with the quality of the work, but his employees were very skilled and respectful during the entire construction period. They were there when promised and continued working daily until the job was completed. I had a couple of minor concerns during the process but they were dealt with promptly; one the same day and one the following day. One of my major worries when searching for a contractor was finding one who was not only reputable and trustworthy but would complete the project in a timely manner and Emperor Homes definitely met my requirements. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!"

"I'm proud to have worked with Averra Developments for the past 5+ years as their go-to photographer. I have been extremely pleased with their professionalism and attention to detail. It's always a pleasure to document their developments, whether the pictures are for sales purposes or simply to document the company's progress. Averra's homes are impeccable with design-builds that appeal to west coast modernism and the aesthetics that are sensible to Vancouver's green environmental attitude. In 2010, Averra Developments commissioned me to photograph a heritage home next door to Vancouver City Hall. I can't say enough how was excited I was to learn that my photographs helped propel Averra to win a prestigious Georgie Award for their project. They are truly deserving."

Blackfish Homes Ltd.
Home Builders in Nanaimo, BC
"The recipe for a good renovation project starts with the collaboration between client, designer and builder. A well thought out design is essential but without the craft, efficiencies and diligence of a good builder the renovation project can seem endless. Dave and his crew provided concise budgets and tracking throughout the construction process, impeccable craft and an overall attention to detail which helps any home owner and designer feel at ease. I look forward to working with Blackfish on our next project. Jammy Arthur, Portal Design Inc."
