Dear Jamie,I would like to take a moment to congratulate you and your team on the excellent job you did with our cottage build in Haliburton, Ontario.  We started from scratch, literally a hole in the ground, and from the time you joined us we had it made!

You had access to, and openly shared, your wide array of contacts which enabled us to make many cost effective decisions.  As well, you were very open to working with our list of already confirmed service providers (i.e. plumbers, electricians) to ensure that the project ran smoothly and was on time.   You took the lead in dealing with the Township Building Inspector and provided us with a worry-free and seamless experience in this regard.

The quality of your work and the work of those trades that work with you is ‘second to none’ and needless to say we were extremely pleased with the results.  We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Yours sincerely, Cathie Proulx

Jamie Steele is wonderful to work with.
He says what he means and means what he says.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for a contractor.

“We absolutely recommend Steele Carpentry! Jamie kept our renovation on time and on budget. He and the guys made the experience of a home renovation with 3 kids fun.”

We highly recommend Steele Carpentry. We received reliable, professional , quality service and price.


“We have used Steele Carpentry for a number of home improvements over the past 10+ years including an entire finished basement, an extension to our home to expand the laundry room, the installation of new patio doors (including adding a patio door in place of a window), a new 250 sq ft deck and various interior trim work including the addition of crown molding throughout the main floor. Everything was always completed on time and on budget. We would highly recommend Jamie and his crew to anyone considering professional home renovations.

I hired Jamie Steele last fall to take down my old log cottage that was built in 1940 and to build me a 4 season cottage – home.  I picked a vice-roy model that would be able to fit on my lot and went over all the plans etc with him and what his cost would be for him to build it. He came back to me with the cost of taking down the old place and what the cost of my new place would be.
I am more than 100% happy with the work that he and his crew did and I have had nothing but positive feedback on his work. Working with Jamie and his crew was wonderful and they all treated me with nothing but respect as I was doing this as a single woman. He contacted me on any little changes that he thought I would prefer over the original design of the plans and was more than willing to have me call him any time with any questions.
His communication with his clients is top notch and he is very respectful. He and his crew are very easy to work with and are a  bunch of wonderful men ………… I consider them my friends.
His quality of work and attention to detail is excellent. Their work ethic is 100% and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about my experience working with Jamie. He is a wonderful man and very easy to communicate with on all levels. He was not only my builder for my new cottage, but is also my cottage neighbor.
At the end of it all, everything he said price wise was on target and any extras I decided to finish on the inside and outside was my personal choice to take on and have it finished.
So, to say was I happy with Jamie Steele and his crew ….. totally. I would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation at all.
