Craftsmanship in stone
 and wood since 1981



We're  a general contractor serving the Ottawa, Ontario area.

Although we do all kinds of construction, our reputation is built mostly on many years of finely crafted natural stonework and detailed ,careful,carpentry & woodworking. All of our work comes with a 5 year warranty. We have a special interest in doing unusual or challenging work. We're particularly well qualified to do work that combines natural stone with carpentry and woodworking.

 We design and build porches, decks, pergolas and other outdoor structures, additions and sunrooms We have done over 2000 projects in the Ottawa area since 1981. Click on the links above to see examples and descriptions of some of the work that we have done.

We also do design and construction of natural stonework, including flagstone entrances and flagstone patios , natural stone walls , fireplaces, house facing, and natural stone floors. We also repair and rebuild stonework . In conjunction with our stonework and decks,  we do landscape construction, including brickwork, planting bed construction, and sodding.

Our   goal is to design and build work that is permanent, functional, simple, and graceful, while maintaining individual character and vitality through careful craftsmanship and the use of natural materials, primarily wood and stone.
We aim to work in a state of mind/ methods of practice that make the construction process a predictable, pleasant and satisfying one for everyone from clients to labourers.
