We were looking for a general contractor to completely renovate our small existing cottage and to build an addition with two bathrooms and four bedrooms. We wanted quality workmanship and, as well, were looking for suggestions and improvements to our design along the way. Since we wanted to do some of the renovation work ourselves, we also wanted to be able to work with the contractors as a team.
With Jim Crawford Carpentry—Jim Crawford and Ken McEwen—we found the contractors we were looking for. We had design plans but a number of questions arose during construction, resolution of which led to a better design. Jim was good at highlighting possible changes and enhancements. Jim and Ken were good to work with, as I wanted to do much of the clearing of the original cottage myself, as well as do the final painting and staining. We worked well together. Jim and Ken also worked well with scheduling other trades involved such as electrical, plumbing and masonry.
We found they did excellent quality work with attention to detail, particularly when it came to the finishing and trim, which really make the difference in the fine details and overall finished appearance of the cottage.
We are very satisfied with our completed cottage and would highly recommend both Jim and Ken for a build or renovation project.

After a series of interviews amongst a number of builders, we decided to choose Jim Crawford and the results were outstanding. We happen to live 5 hours away from McKellar, so it was important that we chose someone that is dependable, well connected locally to the trades people, provides high quality work, able to problem solve & offer solutions and someone that has strong communication skills. Jim Crawford is all of that – he is an honest, dependable, highly skilled individual and has great relationships with local trades, which is very important for scheduling and quality work. We highly recommend Jim Crawford and without a doubt would hire Jim again!
