I built two homes with Casa Verde Construction in 2018-2019. My whole experience, from the planning phase through the entire build process and even post completion, could not have been better… His team of carpenters are highly skilled, professional, and genuinely good, kind human beings! I highly recommend Casa Verde Construction to anyone looking to build a quality, high-end, custom home.
Paul substantially improved a design we had done separately and provided a clear building plan and budget from the get go. Through the sometimes stressful stages of the build he had a calm hand and made sure expectations were aligned. There were no surprises. Smart, articulate and with a great team of (the best) trades we are delighted with the results. We wouldn’t use anyone else.

We hired Paul and Casa Verde to renovate our 100 plus year old fishing camp. The result was nothing short of stunning and as one of our members says — it still takes away his breath every time he goes through the front door. The processes was painless, Paul is honest, straight forward , deals professsionally with inevitable challenges and his pride in building something that is far beyond ordinary is extraordinary.

Paul and his crew made this complex and challenging restoration painless and without issue. We have renovated, built and restored other homes but we have never had such a stress free experience.

Casa Verde’s president Paul McElligott was very easy to work with. He would narrow down our choices knowing what we were looking for, which made the whole process much easier. The house was finished on time with great attention to detail. We would hire this company again, the workmanship is absolutely beautiful!
Dr. Michael Yachnin & Lina Yachnin
We were very impressed by the quality of the trades and sub-contractors hired by Paul to work on our house, and we have received several comments to the same effect from friends and from neighbors who had observed the care and attention to quality of the build. The build site was impeccable, and the quality of the construction work and finishing was excellent.
Dr. Carrier & Dr. Duigenan
It was very important for us to have a harmonious relationship with the builder, design team and crew. Paul made this happen with his kindness, down-to-earth attitude and his love of work well done. Paul kept us in the loop during all stages of the project, guiding and advising us, so we could have the finest end product. The crew were always polite, dedicated with a high level of craftsmanship. The end result was beyond our expectations and for our first big project, we could not have asked for anyone better! We recommend his work without hesitation!
Mr. Jean Corriveau & Dr. Claudia Gomez
We can’t say enough good things about Paul and his crew! They built us an amazing lakeside cottage from scratch.
His crew were fantastic, helpful and always happy to answer questions, solve problems or even re-do things when we changed our minds! …We would have no reservations recommending them to our friends and would definitely hire Paul to build another home for us.
Casa Verde was our first choice on two seperate building projects. Paul and his team’s quality of construction, attention-to-detail , positive attitude and second to none crew make Casa Verde a number one choice!
