Our house is the Lyn project and when we decided to tear down some walls for a major kitchen/living, laundry renovation, we didn’t really know what we were getting into. Now we see that, in Nathan, we got a project manager, designer and carpenter all rolled into one. Nathan was easy to work with and provided an exceptional symmetrical layout and execution of the entire project, while keeping an eye on our bottom line. The cupboards are well crafted forming an essential backdrop for all the beautiful finishes. We walk around and there is nothing, nothing that we don’t like.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Nathan MacArthur as a cabinet maker/carpenter.Nathan worked for me at 5 Bayview Road, Brockville, Ontario on my 100-year old summer frame house from October 15-19, 2018. The house presented several challenges, particularly as the plumb lines had become erratic over the years.In my opinion Nathan tackled his work in a very professional manner. Examples follow: -his estimate for the proposed work was prepared neatly and he went over it carefully with me to ensure that I fully understood it. I particularly liked his clear breakdown of the labour, material costs and the time estimated for its completion. -once on the job he worked quickly and carefully. He always came on time and stopped only for lunch which he brought. At the end of each day and on completion of his work, he tidied up satisfactorily. -He was able to suggest practical and suitable solutions to the problems he encountered. -He has a keen sense of what he planned to accomplish each day and liked to be able to complete his plan at the day's end. -His attitude to his work was very positive and it was a pleasure to have him in my house.I have no hesitation in suggesting his name for his type of work and look forward to engaging him again in the Spring of 2019.
We recently hired “King Arthur Woodwork Inc” to act as the project manager for a 4 season sunroom addition to our home. Nathan was also responsible for most of the finishing and the millwork. To say that we are pleased is an understatement!!!! Nathan's work and oversight of the project was exemplary. His knowledge, creativity and commitment to fulfilling our goals and expectations instilled confidence and allowed us to sit back and enjoy the ride while he did the hard work.Nathan has a great sense of artistic creativity and throughout this project presented many design features and ideas for us to consider, many of which, are now part of the final product.One of the key design features of this project was to incorporate 32 year old rough sawn black cherry lumber and how to do so. Nathan's suggestions resulted in this beautiful wood being brought to life in the form of cabinetry, ceiling beams, a post that frames a stone wall and fireplace mantel. The finished product has now preserved a chapter in our personal history!!Nathan has incredible project management skills which involved coordinating, overseeing and communicating with contractors and professionals to meet timelines and construction expectations. Nathan always ensured our best interests, goals and budget were on target and kept at forefront. He is an excellent communicator and always kept us in the loop throughout the project. He sets the bar high for himself and for contractors and was vigilant in ensuring the end product met our expectations. He is very skilled at leading and working as part of a team and does so in a respectful, calm and professional manner.Nathan holds himself and those who work for him accountable and he always follows through on his commitments…if he says he is going to do something he does!!!!No project is without its glitches and while we experienced very few, when they did occur Nathan dealt with these in a calm and thoughtful manner working in partnership with contractors and ourselves to find a satisfactory solution. When all was said and done the project was done in the time projected and within budget.Nathan's attention to detail, his honesty, integrity and his quality of workmanship are the defining features of his company. As such, it is why we will continue to use King Arthur woodworking for future projects.Our sunroom is the centrepiece of our home and we look forward to enjoying many years of enjoyment, peace and solitude in this gorgeous place!!!! .Brian and Dorothy
Nathan did a super job here, doing the things that I can’t. Came on time, worked hard, cleaned up.Thanks
Nathan designed and implemented our kitchen, living room entertainment area and trim package. His workmenship is excellent. He pays extra attention to detail and was always able to come within deadlines. He is trustworthy, a great communicator and works cooperatively with other onsite professionals. He is proactive in planning and timing. Nathan is a guy that goes above and beyond. Nathan makes an outstanding asset to any project and once you meet him you'll want him on yours!
My husband and I hired Nathan as Project Manager to oversee our master bedroom ensuite renovation. He is highly organized and has great attention to detail. He treats his clients and their home with a great deal of respect. He takes the time to ensure that you are fairly quoted for all labour and trade and holds them accountable to ensure they complete the work on time and on budget. Our greatest appreciation for Nathan as our Project Manager is his insistence on ensuring that we were satisfied. It is clear that he takes a great a deal of pride in his work and is truly worth his weight in gold. We would recommend Nathan to anyone we know without hesitation. Thank you for the great work and for the great experience!
GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL!!!My team and I have worked with Nathan on a major bathroom renovation project recently, and were completely surprised with the high level of organization and craftsmanship he brings to the job. Nathan is a very effective communicator with a very professional manner. It was a pleasure to work on his project.A 100% true Craftsman that genuinely cares about the job and the people on it. We are looking forward to another project with Nathan soon.
Nate responded quickly to our request for advice and suggestions. He helped us design a dining room cabinet that has proven to be both functional and attractive. His workmanship was first rate and his punctional delivery was appreciated.
Nathan oversaw the development of my commercial Gym. His attention to detail and skill at keeping the trades accountable and on time was impressive. Nathan's was able to take my gym from concept to completion in near record time. 6 weeks from permit to occupancy!
Nathan recently designed sliding drawers and doors in an open area of our existing cabinetry making sure to match the colour/ texture and handles!! Everything flowed perfectly so that you would never know it wasn’t there with original kitchen!!Great job!!!
