I think the pictures below speak for themselves. Just look at the gorgeous addition that Big Dog and his crew built for me. They built it very solid (have you ever seen 8 x 8's?), and they paid attention to details. Big Dog is continually thinking in the mode of "What would I want if it were my home?" and building according to that principle. Back at the office, Michaela was in constant touch with me, addressing any questions or concerns, and sourcing the best materials at the best price on my behalf. The company worked as a very professional team to ensure that the vision I had for my addition came to fruition. In fact, they made it even better than I had envisioned it.
Worth stating, as well, is that G.A. Fraser Custom Contracting is licensed and insured. This is not as common in the business as you might think!

We hired G. A. Fraser Custom Contracting on two occasions. First, in 2010, they put a new roof on our cottage and leveled a 12' by 20' shed. Second, in 2015, they replaced two broken concrete piers under the cottage. From start to finish, we had a very positive experience on both occasions. They warranty all workmanship, products and materials for a period of three (3) years.
The owner, G. A. Fraser (Big Dog), responds quickly to requests for estimates and comes at a time that is most convenient to the customer. He provides sound recommendations and does not try to sell services that are not needed. His estimates are written, thorough and there are no surprises on the final invoice. Big Dog is a very friendly person and makes the customer feel at ease while discussing the project.
In our experience, the company provided services over and above the written estimate at no extra charge. For example, they replaced a few boards of siding that were rotten on the shed. They installed rebar inside the footing tubes for additional strength even though it is not a necessity.
The project team showed respect for our property and all debris was removed.
We were very impressed with the company's communication with the customer. Michaela Rhodes, the Project Coordinator emailed us each day with information as to what had been completed that day and what the team expected to complete the next day. She responded quickly to our emails and always encouraged us to ask questions and express our concerns. The tone of her emails was friendly yet business like.
G. A. Fraser Custom Contracting employ only skilled/trained people and they believe that everyone on-site should be experienced and knowledgeable. They have a master carpenter (Big Dog 35 years+), lead carpenter (14 years), senior carpenter (10 years) and a third year apprentice carpenter. Big Dog has overall responsibility for every project and no project is complete until Big Dog signs off on it.
Because of the high quality of the workmanship and materials, we are confident that these projects will stand the test of time for years to come. We have and will recommend the services of G. A. Fraser Custom Contracting to our friends and neighbours and we will definitely hire this company again if and when the need arises.
We had an old family cottage that had sunk into the ground. GA Fraser Custom Carpentry did an amazing job raising the cottage. Then, the inside was gutted and brought up to code. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date with emails and pictures of the progress. When we had any queries the response was quick. The staff were great to work with. Work was completed as per the contract. It was enjoyable from beginning to end. We now have a wonderful summer place to continue to share with our family. I would entrust any project in the future to GA Custom Carpentry.
We love Big Dog. He is reliable, does excellent work and is so very personable. His staff is equally reliable and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him for new construction or renovation or repair. You can't go wrong. His price is always fair.
