“Awesome Wood have completed a number of major projects in our 90+ year old home including the extensive restoration of hallways and staircases, the design, manufacture and installation of custom kitchen cabinets and a major painting project. We are delighted with all their work and our house now looks absolutely stunning. It is clear that Cil and Karen each love what they do and their work is of the highest quality. They will do whatever it takes to ensure the best possible results and complete customer satisfaction. They are also a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend them and would hire them again in an instant.”


“Great work! Property Management was totally impressed. We’ve recommended you to another tenant.”

A happy client

“I had this little “ugly duckling” of a side table at our old cottage up north. It had potential, but was obviously abused in a previous life. It was wobbly, and the finish on it was shot. Karen took care of the structural problems superbly and Cil finished it to perfection… the ugly duckling is now a gorgeous swan. In fact, it looks so good now, I’m not sure I want to take it back up to the cottage! Thank you both for the obvious care and attention to detail you bring to your craft. I’m so glad I found you!”

“It’s been on my minds for some time now to say a follow-up thank you for the work you did in my home. It was worth the wait to have such a good job done. I love the colour and the finish.”

“Cil and her partner do absolutely amazing work. They have refinished our previously beyond ugly 1800’s bedroom suite to its former glory. Not only do they know how the old pieces should be constructed, they know where to find period replacement pieces such as screws for the drawer pulls that came from the UK over 150 years ago. They know their stuff, are detail oriented and are great to work with.”

“The columns look amazing. You’ll have to stop by to have a look at the transformation!”

Ellen & Arlene

“Karen & Cil. Thank you for everything. You are incredible caftswomen and our house is truly beautiful because of you!”


“It’s amazing that you have turned our out of style kitchen into a bright and modern one. It is far beyond our expectations. Thank you for the great job you have done for us.”

Clem & Sharon

“When we arrived home last night we felt like we were walking into a brand new kitchen. We love it… you both did a wonderful job.”


“Cil is a “keeper” for sure. There is no one like her.

She transformed our 34 year old kitchen into something totally new by repainting the cabinetry and walls/ceiling. Cil is extremely thorough, does impeccable work, and adds the finishing touches over and above the contracted job to make things “just right”. As well, she has the perfect balance of offering her thoughts on how to make things better while, at the same time, following carefully her client’s wishes. Cil is reliable, shows up when she says she will, and leaves the site neat and tidy when she is finished.

We would recommend Cil to anyone and would hire her again in a heartbeat. She is a true professional.”
