"Josh has done several large + small projects on my Victorian home in Kingston. I know I can trust him when I am away, he makes it easy to own a rental property." - Linda

"Josh was able to analyze our property for future building, which included doing a full assessment of the land, waterfront, and possible positioning of our new buildings. He created a drone video for us so we could understand our investment. Josh ultimately idea-ted + planned our vacation property just outside of Kingston ON. Highly recommended him + his team." - Peter


"Josh from Building Tradition did the demolition of our cottage, and the design-build of several out-buildings on our property. I have nothing but nice things to say about this company; timely, on-budget, friendly, expert advice." - Renee Michel
