Built in entertainment unit/shelves

Matthew installed an absolutely beautiful built in entertainment unit/shelves in our home. He delicately designed it to match our exiting trim work and mantle, and it is complete with doors to enclose our TV.
Matthew is very professional, thorough, experienced, precise, and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone looking for high quality, custom carpentry, suitable for any space. If he is busy, he will give you a very accurate estimate on when he will be available, and it is well worth the wait.
Thanks for the great work Matthew!

We highly recommend Matthew

The quality of work Matthew delivered for us along with the professionalism he displayed in doing so were of the highest calibre, superior in most respects to most other contractors we have worked with.

For our project, we asked Matthew to build out modifications to our pantry as well as to build custom cabinets to match a murphy bed / shelving unit in our spare bedroom. Matthew's design for the pantry is functional and sturdy but also beautiful, he addressed all our needs and built everything maximizing the space to the last millimetre (literally). The units built in the spare bedroom match the murphy bed exactly in terms of colour and aesthetics, again these were measured, designed and built with unbelievable precision. He also came up with a very clever idea to solve the lack of headboard on the bed.

He communicated openly throughout the process with us and the work was delivered exactly on the agreed date without any delays, which is frankly rare when working with contractors. We have other future projects in mind, and will not hesitate to reach out to Matthew again when the time comes.

Custom cabinetry for laundry and furnace area

Matthew took what was an awkward and unsightly laundry/storage area and made it into a beautiful and functional space. He also helped us turn a small nook into a great homework area for our kids with the addition of a floating desk.

He has incredible attention to detail and commitment to quality. As much of the build took place in his shop, total work in our house was limited to about 3.5 days.

Bedroom And Den Renovation To Include MURPHY Bed.

This review is long overdue. Matthew is an artist. Rarely does one come across a craftsman like Matt. Boring planks of wood and 2 x 4's spring to life. Thats how amazing this 'one man show' is.
Thank You Matthew. And for the work that you do.

Armour/closet

Matthew is a creative, collaborative, meticulous carpenter. He is an excellent designer, and has innovative solutions to space challenges. In addition he cleans up after himself with minimum disruption to the household. What is more and very unusual, is that he stuck to the agreed upon schedule. In other words he is a gem!

radiator covers

Matt is a master carpenter - talented in rendering design that fitted with a 95 years old house - precise with excellent attention to details. I will hire him in future with full confidence in his execution of project to highest carpentry standards.

Fireplace Mantle

I contacted Matthew after reading his reviews on HomeStars. I required a mantle built for my new gas fireplace. Matthew built a beautiful mantle consulting with me through the entire process. He is a professional, skilled finished carpenter with attention to detail. He tied in the fireplace to my existing baseboard beautifully even though the baseboards were custom made. I highly recommend Matthew.
Thanks again Matthew!

Window seat

We had Matthew build a window seat with storage drawers for our bedroom. He responded promptly to our request, and helped out at every stage. Matthew took great care to ensure both the design and function of our seat worked perfectly. We just love it! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Matthew and hope to have him back at some point for more beautiful built-ins. He's a true craftsman.

Thanks very much for your review Karen. I'm so glad you are enjoying the bench seat. I particularly like the fabric you chose for the seat cushion!

Cabinets under stairs

Matthew designed and built 3 beautiful cabinets, a bookshelf and a desk to fit under our stairs. We couldn't be happier with the results! He always responded promptly and kept us appraised of status and timelines. He was a pleasure to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate to use his services again.

A true craftsman and professional

We have hired Matt for 4 different projects in our house...and all have been stunning! The first was our living room fireplace and bookshelves with stereo cabinet; then our TV room with bookshelves and tv equipment; finally, the custom built-ins in our walk in closet. And I almost forgot that he designed and built 5 rad covers for our house too!

We love dealing with Matt as he's thoughtful and very solutions-oriented! As well, Matt has a great sense of design and style which was very helpful in planning all three projects. Finally, he's just an all-round lovely guy who is a delight!

We cannot say enough good things about Matt and will continue to hire him AND recommend him to all our friends!

Wow, thanks so much for your review! It has always been a pleasure to work in your lovely home. Your appreciation for detail has resulted in some truly satisfying projects - from the slatted rad covers to the stained glass incorporated in the cabinetry to the decorative metal screen transom. I'm always excited to hear from you both and make your ideas come to life. Thanks again!
