It is my absolute pleasure to write this recommendation for Tom Labelle and his team at Stillwater Design & Build. We do a lot of high-end luxury yacht projects in my line of work and when it came to doing my personal projects I found myself like a fish out of water. When we first started working with Tom and his team several years ago, my top criteria was working with people that were passionate about their work and simply “Cared” about the job they were doing.

In the years since we met Tom, we have done many different projects from small to large. Most recently we built a new design office, just completed as I write this. The project was meticulously planned and executed by Tom. As it nears completion we are On Budget, On Time and better than promised.


Every step of the way  the sub-contractors showed up exactly when they were supposed to, and the site was always clean and orderly. Every person on Tom’s team were always superb, friendly, and tidy.

Anybody that has engaged in any construction project knows that achieving all the above is very rare and very hard to do. Tom has done this on every project. We will continue to build many more projects with Tom for many years to come."  


- Signed Very Happy Customers,

"Tom Labelle, Director of Stillwater, Design Build, immediately impressed us with his open and creative approach to our project that invited a 'new and fresh' build design for our retirement home on a small Gulf Island.


Tom and all of his crew, were approachable, accountable, and conscientious toward our build.


Stillwater DB was well resourced, connected to the building sub-trades industry and knowledgeable about all that it takes to make a build run seamlessly. Fine attention to detail and a finishing touch has made the build, now our home, an amazing place to live.


We enjoyed our build experience and were constantly struck by the crew’s professional, organized, friendly, and tidy approach and appearance on our site throughout.


Tom was open, informed, well organized and thorough. We would build with this team again.


- Thank you."

Stillwater Design Build renovated an open carport attached to my house, giving me a beautiful home office / living space.  Tom and his crew were a pleasure to work with, from beginning to end. 


They were infinitely patient and knowledgeable in answering my questions and explaining building procedures etc. The crew was consistently considerate, tidy, efficient, helpful, and generally really great guys.  Their workmanship was stellar and I couldn’t be happier with the finished space.

The icing on the cake, so to speak, was that the project came in on budget with Tom checking in over the course of the work to touch base about budgetary aspects.  I cannot recommend this company highly enough.  They are extremely professional, proficient and personable."

“Tom Labelle and the crew from Stillwater Design Build are brilliant craftsmen. He and his team have completed two major projects for us and we highly recommend his expertise and services. Our projects were completed on time and within budget by friendly, qualified tradespeople. From the first consultation to the final inspection, their work was professional and took into account our specific needs, wishes and expectations (and then some!).”

- Debbie & Steve

"Stillwater Design Build delivered an exceptional product and service. Tom and Tyler are skilled master carpenters who don’t cut corners and the results show. They were upfront and provided budget transparency throughout the build process, which was very refreshing. The finished product was exactly what we envisioned for the space. Now we have a beautiful and maintenance free TimberTech deck. We hope to work with Stillwater again soon."

"Tom and the team at Stillwater made the process of building our new commercial space a breeze.  We truly felt like he was part of our team, and we know we wouldn’t have got it done without him. 


Beyond being a valued part of the team, the quality of work and attention to detail was second to none."


- Brad and Derek

"Tom did what everyone else told us was impossible - he reclaimed our century old floors, providing advice and the skills to deliver top-quality results that met our tight timelines."
