John and I and our family are beyond thrilled with our cottage. Bill Ferguson and his crew went all out. Our cottage is on an island so there were many challenges. We started in the fall in 2010 with completion for the summer of 2011. He was on time on budget and kept an extremely tidy worksite. He and his team were very helpful throughout the design process. We could not have asked for a better experience and would recommend Bill and his team to anyone in Muskoka. We will undoubtedly use Bill for any of our future projects.
