Sever Homes made our dreams come true. We embarked on a full gut and renovation of a 100 year old High Park house that had never been updated. We immediately felt that we were in the best hands with John during our first walkthrough; John let us know not only what we wanted was possible (completing an open concept of the entire main floor) but also gave his input and ideas that elevated the project to a whole new level. His dedication, perfectionism and attention to detail led to the completion of our dream home. We were very impressed with the Sever Homes’ team with regards to their talent within their trades as well as their professionalism and camaraderie. Ivonne Sever was unbelievably pivotal in getting all required permits aligned so that we could begin construction as soon as possible. We also appreciated her extreme organization, dedication to our project and wonderful personality. I would recommend Sever Homes over and over again, they are the best team in the GTA.


Sever Homes took on our dream project and transformed the central living space in our home to one that we can’t imagine living without! The project came in on budget within the initial timelines agreed. The owner is an outstanding lead contractor and maintained a regular communication flow so we were kept updated on status constantly. The quality of finish is superb. He has a keen eye for function and design and he provided solid guidance at every key stage. He saved us precious time by directing us to selective third party vendors and even accompanied us on shopping trips and planning meetings to ensure all involved collaborated in an effective manner, thereby keeping the pace of progress on track. When we met with any unexpected complexities/challenges he provided solid rationale for workable solutions, always upholding the integrity of the design. He is well respected within the industry, as evidenced by the strong relationships he has with a stand-up group of sub-trades. They all worked efficiently, seamlessly handing off from one to the other, back and forth – always maintaining the same high standard of work that we came to expect from Sever Homes and team. The level of after-service we received served to enhance what was overall an outstandingly positive experience from Sever Homes. We would highly recommend this team for any medium to large scale building and design projects.
