“Sandy and I have worked with many project managers over the course of our lives, as we undertook one construction project or another; however, we think our interactions with you personally, and Country Lane in general, were probably the best experience yet. You took a very personal interest in our project and clearly understood how important it was for us to get the details correct. We very much appreciated all your professional and personal insights during our many site discussions about various aspects of the project. In our opinion, the wonderful space you and the team turned out for us is largely the result of your strong leadership.

This note would be incomplete if we did not say a word of praise about "the guys". Every single worker you sent to the house was a pleasure to spend time with. They were craftsmen of a type that one rarely sees any more. To a man they took pride in their work and they persisted in every task until it was just perfect. They were always pleasant and cheery and I personally enjoyed coming to the site every day they were there.

I would also be remiss if I didn't comment on the Iraqi brothers, our tireless painters. What a crew! They are classics. I wondered at first if they were the guys for us but, as per usual, your recommendation was spot on. They are true characters and a pleasure to deal with. Make no mistake, their painting abilities are truly amazing and their attention to fine detail is something I have not run across very often. I would highly recommend them to any of our friends.

Finally, a further word of thanks to you for dealing with the water disaster over the last 2 months. Craig says the end product is perfect! I can't tell you how nice it was to know that someone who knew the house so well was dealing with the issue in our absence. I am in your debt for that service.

When we are back in the spring and the house is up and running, we still intend to orchestrate a drop-in event so the guys can all see the fruits of their labours. In the interim please remember us to them and tell them once again how much all their efforts on our behalf were appreciated. I have no idea what the future holds; however, I can safely say that you and the team will be first on our list should renovation or building be part of that scenario.”

We wish you all the best,

Jim and Sandy Swann

“We wish to thank you for a beautiful finished product – our natural stone front porch. Many compliments have come our way due to the work you and your associates carried out. Equally as important to us was the prompt attention given to our concerns and the helpful and courteous manner of the persons guiding the work; in particular Jeremy Warren and Lester Brubacher.

Thank you for giving an old house a face lift!”

Sincerely -

Keith & Valarie

“This note is long overdue. I’ve been wanting to thank you again for our beautiful home. Not one day goes by that I don’t stop for a minute and appreciate the beauty of our home. The work that your team did is so skilful and beautiful and obvious through out the house. Thank you again!”

Anne & Oliver

“Words can’t describe how thankful we are. It was a pleasure working with you & you made our experience so easy. You were there for us all the way and we won’t forget. Thank you for making a beautiful home for us. Pictures to follow! You are number One in our book! Thank God we had you with this build. We can’t thank-you enough.”

Tammy & Vince

“Cathy and I really wanted to thank the entire Country Lane/Homestead team for the excellent work on our main floor renovation. We are 100% thrilled with how it turned out – we still marvel at how much it improved our house. As it was our first experience with a house renovation, we didn’t really know what we were getting into, but have absolutely no doubt that we made the right choice in signing on with Country Lane. We appreciated your patience through the design process and the recommendation to have Tami work with us was a perfect fit for Cathy and me. Thanks to Jeremy, Jeff, Chris, and Mike and everyone on their crews – they were all excellent to work with. We were also very impressed and amazed with the professionalism and co-operation from all of the sub-trades that came onsite. It is obvious that they value very highly the relationship that they have with Country Lane. We have received many compliments on our renovation and have been happily providing references on your behalf. I just can’t say enough good things about our experience.”

Murray Perkins

“All of us who undertake a major renovation, as we did, do so with many trepidations and concerns. Our high expectations only contributed to this anxiety. Putting our trust in Country Lane Builders proved to be a wise decision. All the people who were involved were very skilled and professional individuals. Their dedication to quality and exceptional craftsmanship delivered a final result that we can honestly say exceeded our expectations. Thank you for making our dream a reality.”

Garry & Nancy Collins

“We want to express our thanks to Country Lane and Homestead Woodworks for the renovations and the new kitchen completed on our house in Waterloo. We are so proud of our new home and are enjoying its comfortable ambiance.

We appreciate the professionalism with which the entire project was handled. It was a pleasure to work with all those involved – from our initial visit with Murray, through the design stage, the demolition and construction phase, to the final finishing details. The craftsmen were respectful, conscientious and produced amazing quality work. The contractors were prompt, dependable and maintained the standard set by your people. It has been a joy to entertain and hear the expressions of admiration. We can’t say enough about how pleased we are with our home. We will never hesitate to recommend your company for superior quality work done in a highly professional and dependable manner.”

Bruce and Karen

“This is a written thanks to Country Lane Builders for the home that they built for us.

The experience of building a house can at time be arduous, however, given the circumstances Tim & his crews were both patient and extremely helpful. They created for us a house we are proud of and not a day goes by that we don’t marvel at the craftsmanship that went into this project.

The ‘fit and finish’ surpassed our expectations and we have no reservations in recommending their services.”
