Micah Stewart had been recommended to me a number of years before we were able to build. After my first meeting with him I was certain he was the builder I wanted for our project, which was a large one.
During that period of delay Micah patiently and generously reviewed new plans and revisions even though we hadn't yet made a firm commitment to work together.
He had excellent skills, the ability to take in details effortlessly, and problem solve easily when necessary. He was flexible as the build progressed which allowed for my input and this was important to me. His estimates were detailed and fair and he stuck to his pricing for those agreed upon details. When there were changes any extra charges seemed fair.
He and his crew were steady workers and more than competent. I had full confidence that the work would be done in a timely way and to a high standard. Since the buildings were completed I have used Micah's services for other smaller projects. He responds immediately with estimates and once approved sends over a crew and the job gets done.

After initial searches, and based on several very positive recommendations, we hired MD Stewart Construction Ltd to build our new home in 2009. His interacting with the architect in all phases helped facilitate the intermingling of some complex issues - incorporating exterior stone extensively into the interior, dealing with numerous unconventional angles plus curved walls, and showing proficiency in complex ICF plus conventional poured curved concrete foundations. Micah demonstrated cooperative & effective interaction with subcontractors, e.g. geothermal installation, custom curved stairs, masonry challenges and plumbing issues.
Micah and his capable and affable team proved attentive, hard-working, friendly and knowledgeable. Finish work is excellent throughout. After 20 months of residing in the end product, our house remains solid, well-constructed, and a joy to call home.
Thank you to Micah and staff.

After designing a plan for our family cottage in the Tatamagouche area, our challenge turned to finding a "dependable" contractor from the "local" area. What we wanted was a contractor with extensive knowledge in construction techniques and materials; a proven track record of completed projects with high quality craftsmanship; a solid network of skilled workers, sub-trades and suppliers; and, a strong commitment to workplace safety. Also, we wanted a contractor who would have open communications with us, answer our questions and collaborate on design and construction ideas that would improve our cottage plans. Ultimately, we wanted a contractor we could "trust".
Following interviews with several companies and talking to a number of people we knew in the area, we selected Stewart Construction. Micah Stewart, owner of Stewart Construction, exceeded all our expectations. Throughout the planning and construction phases, Micah maintained regular and open communications, answered all our questions, and always provided lots of lead time for us to make decisions. He also made many helpful recommendations on construction materials and layout that we happily incorporated into our cottage plan. Micah was vigilant about proper safety standards for all his workers and sub-trades and maintained a well organized and tidy job site throughout construction.
The cottage was completed on-time, on-budget and to a standard of craftsmanship which exceeded our expectations. We now have the family cottage which we always dreamed of, thanks in large part to the professional work provided by Micah. It was truly a pleasure having Micah as our contractor; and, we highly recommend Micah and Stewart Construction as dependable, extraordinary fine home builders.
Micah, thanks again for all your exceptional work.
In spring 2007 I contracted Micah Stewart to build a bungalow on the Brule Shore. I found him to be very conscientious in his work. I also liked that he worked with his team every day and took time to answer all of my questions. He was able to subcontract excellent trades people to arrive at a beautifully finished house by mid-summer.
The quality of his workmanship has withstood the test of time, everything has remained intact through several storms.
Based on my experience, I would recommend Micah Stewart Construction without hesitation.
