Cottage Renovation

April 7, 2014 Tiny

We used MacMillan Homes for the rebuild of our old family cottage. Kevin and Garrett walked us through each step of the process, gave us very helpful suggestions, kept on budget, and did excellent work throughout. I really wanted to preserve a few of the older trees on site, and though it meant extra effort, they went out of their way to save them. Not only that, they were easy and fun to deal with! The new fireplace they built using stone from the original fireplace and matching material was the perfect finishing touch. We would highly recommend them!

Basement Renovation
Nov 10, 2010, Milton

“Kevin and Garrett did a fantastic job. From the first time we met with them they were knowledgeable courteous and overall made a great first impression. We did a complete basement renovation adding 4 bedrooms, washroom with tiled floors and a large tiled shower, sitting room with fireplace and an entertainment unit that Kevin built from a picture I showed him and installed hardwood flooring they also did all the painting. We also renovated an existing deck and added a smaller deck they installed a glass railing system and 2 sets of stairs. Kevin and Garrett’s work ethics are second to none the workplace is always neat they are a pleasure to have in your home. We wish them continued success. You won’t be dissapointed if you hire MacMillan Homes.”

Basement Renovation
Nov 06, 2010, Midland

“My dad and I have slowly been finishing our basement as a weekend project (approx 1000 square feet). We got as far as hanging drywall before we decided that we needed a pro to do our mudding and taping for us. The entire basement needed to be done, including the entire ceiling which involved multiple bulkheads. Garrett and Kevin came in and gave us a good quote and an estimated time for completion which we were quite happy with. They did a fantastic job for us, we could not have been happier. The work was done on time and right on budget. In addition, the work area was always kept very clean and we had little to no dust in our house throughout the project. We have already recommended MacMillan Homes to others and will use them again for any future projects we decide to take on.”

Windows, Doors & Finishings
Nov 06, 2013, Midland

“Our 125 year old home desperately needed new windows and a couple doors. We were finding it difficult to locate a contractor that was knowledgable in older homes. When we met Kevin and Garret it was clear they were experienced, knowledgable and professional. They respected our wish to have the windows and trim work match the original finishings in our home and they went out of their way to create a custom solution to do this. They were tidy, organized and quick which was especially important to us as we both work out of our home. The window and door installation went smoothly and we never worried about the project. We are happy and now much warmer in our home. In addition we were blown away with how they completed the exterior of the windows. Beautiful work all around!”

New 4 Season Cottage
Nov 05, 2010, East York

“We bought an old, seasonal, somewhat rundown cottage and spent a summer there before deciding to build a 4 season cottage, with more space. We had a design drawn up and approached three contractors for quotes. Kevin’s quote was competitive and we liked his straight forward, honest approach, so hired him. He was great! Tore the old place down in September, and the new place was far enough along that we were able to go up there at Christmas. All work was of high quality and we didn’t have to ask that anything be changed or redone – and we were at a distance, only checking once a month or so to see the progress. All work was done to the specification and the one change from the plans that we did, was at Kevin’s suggestion, and the suggestion worked out much better than the original plan would have. We have renovated and added on to three houses and we have never had things go so smoothly. We were very impressed. Kevin’s work has stood the test of time and we will have him quote on some renovations we are doing to our city home.”

Home Addition
Nov 01, 2010, Midland

“We added 110 sq ft to the front of our home. Kevin discovered some dismaying issues, identified the most affordable and structurally sound way to bring us up to code. His knowledge in construction was essential when these unexpected ‘surprises’ were discoverd. Our new living room has ample room for our boys to play and the space in the basement expanded a small bedroom to be a nice play area.”
