Testimonials

  • SevernWoods finished our renovation on time and on budget and the results are beautiful. Every visitor to our house loves the look, feel, solidity, warmth and detail of the renovation. I have recommended SevernWoods to everyone who has asked about contractors, and will not hesitate to do so in the future. For any new renovations that we undertake we would never consider going to anyone else.

    Jim & Cindy
  • Tom has knowledge and experience that sets him apart from many in the field. He really understands homes like ours and was extremely flexible and adaptable throughout the entire process.

    Craig & Katherine
  • Everything from their professionalism, attention to detail, "on the spot" creative problem solving, charming personalities, project completion timing, and the resulting quality of work combined to make this renovation a truly pleasant experience.

    Glenn & Anne
  • The quality of workmanship is spectacular.

    Jonathan & Trish
  • SevernWoods rose to the challenge and delivered on time and within budget. It was a pleasure dealing with Tom and his team.

STYLE AT HOME, December 2011
A CHRISTMAS STORY
Rich in architectural features and stunning period antiques, this stately Edwardian
home in Toronto’s Rosedale neighbourhood is a showpiece all year round, but in December it really comes to life thanks to the homeowner’s beautiful collection of holiday treasures from abroad – all carefully selected and deeply sentimental.
