Our History 
We are a family run company located in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes specializing in all types of custom building from homes and cottages to additions, renovations and outbuildings. We began in 1996 as a father and son partnership and incorporated in 2000. 
Company Goals
Together we knew that we could offer customers a much higher standard of building than what had become the norm in the building industry. We made a commitment to operate a company that was honest and reliable, where:
  • We would listen to our customers needs and always consider them first
  • We would continually strive to exceed our customers expectations
  • We would complete all projects on time and on budget 
  • We would seek out and employ only the very best sub trades and employees to ensure our customers get the highest quality workmanship available.
  • We would make every effort to educate ourselves on new advancements, technologies and products in the building industry to ensure we always provide the very best to our customers.

After more than a decade of buisness, we are proud that Connell Homes continues to meet these goals. We take pride in giving our customers both an enjoyable building experience and an end product they will be proud to own. 

How we operate
  • We offer a full service contracting company, managing every aspect of each project and ensuring proper scheduling of all permits, trades and materials. We are on the job and guarantee consistent progress of each project allowing us to meet required timelines.
  • Our services include a combination of in-house and independent professional sub-trades to complete each project. This ensures the best combination of quality workmanship and project efficiency.
  • We are registered builders with Tarion Warranty Corporation, carry complete commercial liability insurance and are registered with WSIB (Workers Safety and Insurance Board) 
What our customers can expect
  • A high quality of workmanship, where our attention to detail and pride in our work are obvious.
  • Very competitive pricing.
  • Complete, clear and detailed contracts along with contract prices that are guaranteed not to change. Proper contracts are the best way to avoid confusion during the building process.  
  • We provide each client with their own password protected private page on this website (through the client log-in area) where we post pictures and descriptions of their project, allowing customers that cannot be on the building site as often as they would like to remain involved in all aspects of the job. We have found this to be very helpful in allowing customers to make required decisions that keep the project on schedule, and many customers report that they have enjoyed being able to show their friends and family the job as it progresses. 
We have the expertise, reliability and honesty to complete any building project and we look forward to the opportunity to work with you on your next building project.
