2017 Ontario Finalist!



Pioneer Craftsmen has been named a Finalist in the 2017 Ontario Home Builders’ Association's Awards of Distinction in the category "Most Outstanding Bathroom Renovation" for its entry "Ensuite Dream Team"! The winner will be announced on September 26, 2017 at the OHBA’s annual conference in Niagara Falls.

The renovation project featured a complete redesign and remodel of “His” and “Hers” ensuite baths.  Hers is all elegance; his has the masculine touch.  Check out the photos in our Bathroom Gallery!

According to Director of Sales and Design Paul Meier, "Each room underwent dramatic changes, and each has completely different design elements to suit the needs and wants of this couple. The outcome is spectacular, providing an oasis inspired by, and for, each of them.”

Congratulations team for another great achievement!
