“I have known Mel Shakespeare for about 12 years, since I moved to Port Hope, and have come to greatly respect Mel and his professionalism. We have consulted on a number of projects together, and I have experienced Mel’s incredible knowledge, not just of heritage architectural form, but of heritage construction technique. His personal building skills and his craftsmanship are outstanding.
As well as projects that I have been personally involved with, I am quite familiar with a number of Mel’s other projects, both in Port Hope and in other heritage communities. They are, without exception, exquisite examples of heritage construction. Whether they are reconstructed original buildings, sensitive new construction, or a combination of both, I’m quite sure their owners are proud to have worked with Mel Shakespeare.”
