Client Testimonials


"Mary & John Larkin were recommended to us as skilled and very professional  contractors. After several large projects with them they’ve proved to be much more. They have been a critical part of project conception, design, structural underpinnings, cost containment, landscape design and even furnishings. The product of their craftsmanship has always exceeded our expectations. And they’re fun people too - a pleasure to work with and highly recommended.”

 “The Larkins were terrific to work with and have tremendous knowledge and experience building beautiful and detailed homes. 

From start to completion of our new construction home John & Mary Larkin and team were professional, knowledgeable, efficient and most importantly communicative throughout the entire process. The project moved at a consistent pace and the Larkins offered creative and thoughtful ideas and solutions and the quality of build was top notch. We could not be more pleased and impressed with the final result."

“I’m now on my second building project with the Larkins and in both instances I’ve always valued their professionalism, consciousness, and ability to do top-notch quality work. They are craftsmen with the utmost passion and pride for what they do and effective managers in the face of the inevitable challenges that come with any complex project.  Most importantly they are wonderful people who have always had my back.”

Home Remodel

We renovated and decorated our entire house using a top architect and designer, a pretty frightening endeavour, even for the seasoned homeowner.  That is until you sit down and hear the calm and confident voice of John Larkin.  He aims to make the complex, simple and the expensive, affordable.  He has a deep passion for his work and exudes the trust of your old handy uncle. You simply know you are in capable hands.  That fear you had turns to excitement as you gain your own confidence to move forward. 

Like many, we never thought we would find an honest contractor that could do it all.  As a husband and wife team, John and Mary's hand touched everything, from installing cantilevered steel beams to manufacturing furniture quality millwork.  Mary is meticulous and organised.  She keeps an eye on your budget as if it were her own.  Room by room, they simply move forward with no games and no surprises.  They became our advocate and literally do the opposite of your worst fears of contractors...they actually pass on savings and find creative fixes for problems rather than handing you change orders and padded bills. 

Whether you hire them for a small laundry room or a large custom home, they have the ability, patience and talent to take a project from drawings to reality.  It's a real compliment that 4 of their projects have made the pages of Architectural Digest.  But in my mind the real tribute is the smallest jobs that never make a magazine yet share the same attention to detail and value as if it will.  

Seven years after a two-year job, they still come to our home, hammer in hand, to help out with anything big or small.  Hire them!
