The Bowood team made building our dream cottage an enjoyable process. They were on time and on budget. All of their trades produce top quality work and take pride in what they do. We appreciated that all questions and concerns were dealt with quickly and professionally. We would recommend Bowood to anyone looking to build in the Sylvan Lake area.

Bowood designed and built our new cottage as well as renovated an existing one and then creatively married the two. They listened to our needs and added advice and ideas that contributed to the project’s overall success. Our experience with everyone on the Bowood team was positive and professional.

Our relationship with Bowood began with a phone conversation with Susan and our confidence and trust in them grew from there. They really are who their website portrays them to be. Meticulous planning, rational problem solving, good communication and quality workmanship resulted in a cottage we love and are very proud of. It has been a year since completion and we are happy to endorse the Bowood Team without reservation!

“So it is our first Christmas back home and our new home is warm and wonderful. Your team did a fantastic job creating and building our house. You gave new life to an old house that will continue to be a part of a unique neighborhood that feels like family. Once moved back in, our house was so easy to get used to living in. Every day we get to appreciate the blend of new and original features while enjoying the greater comfort and much more space. A beautiful kitchen, amazing bathrooms, warm, spacious, light-filled rooms, and storage! So many details and features that work so well. The adventure was well worth it; the final result was beyond our expectations. Thank you all so much!”

“We just want to express our sincere appreciation to you and your staff for such a wonderful new home. The building process with your company was simply such a good experience and we are satisfied, and delighted customers with our new home. Thank you also to each of your staff, every one of them. Every single employee was so helpful, courteous, and enjoyable to work with. In particular, I must mention Todd by name. Todd is above and beyond in his work. He daily showed professionalism, diplomacy and had the utmost respect from all his trades people. His patience with me and my endless phone calls and questions was remarkable. I appreciated that any question I asked or fretted about, he would kindly explain it to me, leaving me with the perception that Todd is the smartest and most patient man I know. I can’t say enough good things about the process with your company. Our home is lovely, thanks to all of you.”

“It is a great pleasure to provide a testimonial for you regarding Bowood s work on our home/cabin/cottage at Sylvan Lake. I will try to be brief, but this will be difficult for there is so much praise to pass on.
Just a few examples of which were above and beyond the call of duty for a builder in our experience:
– They helped us with some difficult situations with some neighbours and City Council.
– They were always timely, professional, pleasant and kept their sense of humour.
– The right people did the right things at the right time. No bickering!
– They and their associates completed the interior design and landscaping in a very cooperative way.
We now have a beautiful lake home, which our four children, spouses, five grandchildren, and we use extensively.
– They finished on time and below budget, no surprises!
Needless to say, we will heartily recommend them to anyone interested in doing what we did. In conclusion Wow and hooray! Words not often heard in today’s building market. Cheers and thanks to all”
