Larry and Carol Lethbridge Hudon
OakWood in inclusive, trustworthy, honest…I don’t think there is a comparison.
They were able to make what could have been a harrowing roller coaster ride a smooth one. Working with OakWood wasn’t just the most important decision we made, it was also the best decision we made.

“The OakWood Team seems really innovative. They seem really systematized – they’ve got the whole model down. They understand what people want, what they are looking for.”
“In the space of about four months you took us from a virtually useless space to a modern kitchen that fit to the style of the house…”
Jennifer Spence and Pablo Sobrino
“I found everyone right from the initial designers to the last person out the door to be extremely professional, hard working, friendly and very respectful of my home. ”
“We are very happy with the renovation work done on our home…We had no real surprises and all change orders but one was initiated by us so we ultimately had control of expenditures. ”
“There are two areas that particularly impress us about Oakwood: the quality of work and the exceptional work crew…We always felt confident that our home was in good hands. ”
“We’re really enjoying our expanded kitchen and our opened-up front entrance. The project has given our 1970s era house an up-to-date feel and makes entertaining much more enjoyable."
Alex and Mindee Mirhady

“OakWood worked with us, listening to our ideas and delivered a fantastic design.”
