A "more than expected" outcome! Jim's sense of proportion, craftmanship and ideas complimented our project.

Thanks Jim.  Great job! 





Jim has done many project, both in the house and outside and has an exceptional eye for detail and craftsmanship. He is conscientious of cost and timelines and brought fresh ideas to accomplish exactly what we had in mind. We would recommend Jim for any job, large or small.

Nigel and Pat,





We would happily recommend Jim for any job inside or out. He has done both for us, working on our deck, and adding both a bathroom and bedroom in our basement. His work is meticulous! Jim is honest and hard-working, but also very creative with the ability to add finishing touches that are unique and beautiful. He’s our “go-to” guy for any project; we’re lucky he’s able to renovate a bathroom for us this summer.

Judy and Sandy,




We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Jim Muir for a job well done. Jim built a pergola off of our back deck. Jim’s craftsmanship is unparalleled. Jim was creative, bringing fresh ideas to the project. Jim was a careful, conscientious, tidy, thoughtful, professional and punctual worker. He was here when he said he would. He took the time to listen to the ideas we had, letting us know what would work or may be too costly to consider. He was very patient, drawing ideas out, helping us to envision the end result. Jim’s knowledge and attention to detail is exceptional….he loves what he does and it shows. The job was completed on schedule. We would recommend Jim Muir in a heartbeat! Anyone who sees our new pergola will definitely have “pergola envy”! ;-) Thanks for giving us your BEST!!!

George, Tina and Hounds

P.S. Thank you for tolerating our three dogs getting in the way!!!




My new pergola, deck and window boxes are the envy of the neighborhood! Your attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile to give each piece the finishing touches that make each one of a kind and special is much appreciated.

I would highly recommend your carpentry expertise to anyone in need of a truly masterful carpenter.





Jim has done many projects for my family over the years, and I am always very happy with the result. On many occasions I have just sent a picture to him, and then he whips up something in no time that I seem to love more then the picture. Most recently he made a mud room bench for my family, and it is both functional and stylish. He came to our house, measured the area, and drew up a sketch right there and then. A few days later it was designed, crafted, and installed in my home. Thank you Jim for all the projects you have done for me, and my family over the years.

I contacted Jim Muir Carpentry when my wife and I decided to have a bench made for our front entryway.  After sending Jim a picture we found in a magazine and telling him what colour we wanted it to be, he took it from there, and the final product was better then we could have imagined.  One word to describe Jim's work would be "Craftmanship". Not only was the bench made from top grade materials, it was designed and assembled more beautifully then the picture we originally showed him.  This is a piece of furniture in our home now that my family will enjoy for years to come. I will definitely be calling Jim in the future for any upcoming projects we decide to take on.

Thank you Jim

Thank you for your excellent work. I was impressed by your
meticulous attention to detail, and I appreciated your willingness to take care of all the small repair jobs as well as the bigger construction projects. 
The decks look great, and I really like the vinyl siding.



We have employed Jim Muir for several jobs, both large and small and have been extremely happy with all the work done. He built a garden shed, complete with window and small garage door in the backyard and finished it with siding that matched our house. He converted all of the cupboard shelves in the kitchen into custom, handmade, pine sliders.....incredible! He installed 2 screen doors and a ceiling fan in our home. He built a garden obelisk, using cedar planks that we had. Most recently, he installed 1260 sq.ft. of hardwood flooring in our home, plus replaced baseboards and did a beautiful job. During the installation process, Jim's recommendations were insightful, both practically and aesthetically, plus his connections with other certified tradespeople proved to be invaluable when I, the do it yourself home owner, inadvertently punctured the copper gas line to the dryer. Jim made one call and a licensed plumber/fitter arrived within only a couple of hours to do the repair. What a relief !!  We highly recommend Jim Muir for any job, large or small; he is reliable, meticulous, fast, hardworking and his pricing is always fair.
