Great relationships build great homes, and to build a beautiful home you first need to build the right team. In our experience, great work comes from a collaborative process between owner, architect and builder. That’s why we’re proud to say that we’ve completed more than 170 projects and we have no unhappy customers.
We are currently hiring.
Our whole-home renovations come down to one thing: near perfection. From the foundation to the finished product, we know that if the fit starts off exact, it ends up nearly perfect. This is the way the millwork fits into its place. It’s floor transitions you can’t feel when you’re in socks. Doors that don’t stick and stairs that don’t squeak. It’s moulding that doesn’t crack, and cabinetry that looks the same now as it did the day we put it in, a decade ago. It’s why you’ll see us put three spindles on a stair instead of two. It looks better.
Our whole-home renovation projects are typically in the finer neighbourhoods of Toronto with budgets in excess of $500,000.
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 Fine Homes.
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.
