Bravehart Building is designing our new kitchen and dining room area. The ideas they have come up with for entertaining and storage in a small space are wonderful. They provide excellent plans and samples for flooring, kitchens, etc.

We do have a large family over a few times per year and they showed us how to make our space liveable for everyday and for holidays! We recommend them 100%

We had an addition put on our house 3 years ago and we used Bravehart. The lock on the new door recently jammed and because it is one of the new 3 pin locks, simply hiring a locksmith to replace it wasn't an option. I contacted Laura and Bill from Bravehart because they had worked with the company that installed the door and lock. Normally ordering the parts and getting the new lock installed would have taken a couple of weeks (specialty type of lock). Because we were closing on our house and it was urgent, they went the extra mile to get it done. We were pretty frantic as well because you can't sell a house with a door that doesn't open or close. Bill and Laura once said to me that they don't just build it and leave. They are there when things go wrong as well. I have to say that they have stuck by their words. Thanks Bill and Laura.

Thanks for letting people know that we are not only available for them when we are doing the project- that we also help them out when a manufacturer part is defective, after a period of years - with immediate help and proper workmanship.
We wish you all the best in your new house!

We are repeat satisfied clients of Bravehart.
When recently faced with ceiling damage due to a plumbing leak above, I knew who to call for advice.
Bravehart executed our repair to very thorough standards including assessment & addressing water damage, the various stages of drywall and final painting.
Once again, way to go Bravehart.

Laura is fabulous. From our very first meeting we knew we had made the right decision. She spent a great deal of time flushing out our requirements and desires before presenting any ideas. All her concepts and ideas were in line with our wants and needs. She is highly focussed on you and works tirelessly to get you where you want all the while being mindful of zoning requirements. After several revisions of our space plan she will be taking all care of all drawings and permits going forward. We are looking forward to the next stage and have full confidence in Bravehart.

Thanks! It has been fun working with you on evolution of house plan. The house design has improved due to discussions and alterations. It will be a beautiful modern edifice with lots of space, light and luxurious look and feel - even though we will be judicious with spending. Appreciate having you as customers as your communication skills are excellent and that makes this process much more effective (and fun!)

Laura has been instrumental with the renovation of our 100-year-old semi. From the beginning, she is quick to respond to emails and calls and is always available, even while on vacation! She conceptualized several designs for our renovation, paying particular attention to details, ensuring that every kitchen cupboard has a purpose, plenty of space in the living room, and adding a bedroom and bathroom to increase the value of the house. The final design ensured we would bypass COA. She helped us with the zoning application and building permit. Laura helped us see the potential in our house, which we would have missed. Her attention to detail and candor are second to none.

Thanks. Appreciate your review as know we were in a tough place regarding some previous designs you had - and while it's important to 'not rock the boat' or waste client's time, it's equally important that clients do get the best space plan solution for their space; whether it is their home or an investment.
Wishing you all the best with construction.

Laura drew several plans, various configurations, for a 1700 sq. ft. condominium. As two academics we needed specific spaces created: dining and living spaces, a large library space, 2 work spaces, room for visiting guests or grandchildren, and space for filing cabinets. Her knowledge of spatial requirements, detailed plans and functional suggestions helped to visualize and maximum limited space. I had a few ideas, but I was not sure they would work - with Laura's assistance a final plan with drawings were prepared for the condo board in very short time! Thank you!

Our project required knowledge of zoning, conservation, building and architectural/interior design disciplines - the people at Bravehart brought this to us. They provided alternative workable ideas on how to transform our house into a more functional, bright and comfortable space, showing us preliminary budgetary scopes along with the designs.
We are currently assessing which approach is the best one for us - however, we have no hesitation in saying that we are pleased with their work and would recommend them to other people wanting to transform their homes

Your house transformation could go a few different ways and glad you wanted to explore before deciding. Linking the possibilities with the budgets for each is a very important step. Many people don't realize how important space planning/pre-construction planning is to a project and glad you do. It's a pleasure working with you and know we will find the right solution to permit and build.

We were planning to build our dream home and contacted many builders, as well as Bravehart Building.
We liked the approach of Bravehart Building where their design planning approach links the scope of the project with the budget for construction.
They seemed trustworthy and enthusiastic.
Now that we have our building permit and have started construction, we are happy to report that we made the right decision to work with Bravehart Building on our dream home.

Thank you for your confidence in our firm. The project is a highly customized house design - accommodating many features on a difficult lot, as the lot has a creek bed running through it.
We continue to refine the project design to ensure the construction process is thought out in detail before we start framing.
We enjoy working with you as you clearly understand that working a process requires adjustments and discussions, before moving on to the next stage.

We selected Bravehart Building to Design and Build our dream home in Richmond Hill for our family. They were able to take our existing split level home and turn it into a 3 storey, 3 car garage home, with functions for ourselves, parents and siblings - a multi-generational home!

Now we are at the stage of Excavation and Footings work and very pleased with the rapid progress and Site reports and pictures we receive frequently from Bill Wallace.

We do not hesitate to recommend their work.

With foundations approved, we are ready to move to the next stage. We look forward to the framing portion of the project and have had some fun selecting the final finishes for the exterior to ensure all parts will 'fit' together with relative ease of building.
We thank you for your patience with this process as there are many details to cover and we know that busy clients need appropriate information presented before making final decisions.
There will be plenty more decisions required over the next while and we look forward to sorting out all details, before each stage is required to be built, so that we may stay ahead of the game!

Fabulous kitchen renovation. Very happy with the design concept and renovation delivered to maximize the functionality of my space

Thanks for your review and comments. Functionality in a kitchen is the most important factor. Having the items you need at your fingertips, at the moment you need them, is mission critical. Sorting these details out in advance may seem tiring, but it's really the best way to maximize the cabinetry design. Enjoy cooking up a storm and thanks for the support.
