Tom is a professional engineer turned builder. A graduate of Queen’s University in Mechanical Engineering, in the mid-2000’s he decided to combine his appreciation of great architecture and passion for craftsmanship with his background in engineering to start SevernWoods Construction.
172 projects later, Tom’s attention to detail has earned him a prestigious position as one of the best home builders in Toronto.
A perfectionist, Tom believes there is only one way of doing things and that’s well. While there is no such thing as perfect there is really, really good. While Tom will do all the sketches and drawings for steel fabrication and other key components in a house, he has created around him a loyal culture of like-minded craftsmen and project managers and staff.
In his spare time, Tom looks after his young family and brings his eye for detail to the restoration of antique cars and wooden boats, not to mention his passion for carving keepsakes, like basswood rocking animals for kids, out of wood.
A member of the Building Industry and Land Development Association since 2008 and the Professional Engineers of Ontario since 1987, Tom is a frequent speaker and valued contributor at real estate and renovation events.
