“Chatsworth, had been introduced to me by our architect Bill Hicks in addition to 3 other prospective Builders for our new home in Oakville. From the initial stages of the proposal, Chatsworth stood apart from the others, providing significantly more detailed quotes then all other builders. The level of sub-contractor quotes included, helped give me perspective to the detailed approach, as well as helping give comfort that the team had multiple relationships required to make our build a success. This was our first new home construction, and so we had more questions and concerns about how all the steps and stages would work. Fil from the beginning showed us confidence as well as a level of organization and planning that helped ensure we knew what to expect in addition to what was happening through-out the entire process. I completed 3 reference calls which all provided comfort that the level of detail will match my level of interest, and when problems arise the team manages those by providing solutions, and shouldering the issues.

“ Fil’s qualities, chief among them was his honest approach… he was readily available on his cell phone… I am very glad to say we were actually under budget on the final built… our home was approximately a month ahead of schedule and approximately 5% below the initial budget. Minor issues of after-completion care were very quickly assessed and addressed by Fil himself… it was not lost on me how quickly he responded and the minor issues that were not trivialized and addressed very thoroughly and very quickly, and I may add at no extra cost. I have no hesitation in recommending Fil Capuano and his team at Chatsworth to build any home.”

“On behalf of my wife Jann and I, we would like to provide an unequivocal endorsement for Fil and his team at Chatsworth Fine Homes. Our project was particularly complex with tight access requirements and strict timelines as the extensive work was scheduled around a family wedding being hosted at the home. Fil and his team worked with our designer to ensure our vision was brought to life…on time and on budget. The workmanship on the build was exceptional. The tradesmen on the Chatsworth team are skilled, professional, flexible and cooperative. Our site supervisor Paul was always very responsive to our inquiries and was there to ensure exceptional quality control.”

“ Chatsworth has surpassed our expectations to date on what will by far be the biggest project we will ever undertake. Fil, Nick and the entire team at Chatsworth are very personable, extremely organized, very conscious of project costs and committed to delivering the highest quality. Their expertise, professionalism and pride in their work is evident at every stage of the project to ensure that the final product is no less than perfect. Prior to engaging Chatsworth, we had a lot of questions and worries after having heard of construction projects gone wrong, over budget and never on time. We have been fortunate enough not to be part of that statistic. We are thrilled with the progress of our house so far and cannot wait to see it finished”

Rashmi Khosla P. Eng. and Neil Manji C.A.

“By the way…my brother-in-law who is a contractor in charge of many major downtown projects and formerly at the now completed new Pearson terminal, got to see our “new site” for the first time and he NOTHING but praise for the way everything has been put together! Having had 2 semi-disastrous renos we lived through, it was sooo reassuring and refreshing to say the least to hear praise given by someone who has done major projects and built his own house and northern cottage…someone who is extremely picky and discerning in his choices! So thank you for that too! It was great to hear and wated to pass on the compliment…but perhaps you hear it ALL the time!”

Debbie Findlay

“Hello Gord and Fil. Laurie and I wanted to thank you both for a great session at our home last night. Hearing the two of you discuss the details about our upcoming house construction made us feel very reassured that we have the right people working on this project for us. You both exude “quality” in everything you do! We look forward to our continued work together as the project evolves.”

David & Laurie Weishuhn

“Hi Fil…Thanks for your help; you guys definitely work for the best interests of your clients.”


“I am delighted to provide my wholehearted endorsement of Chatsworth. It has been a pleasure from start to finish working with Fil and his crew to turn my ideas into a home. It was a learning experience as Chatsworth took me through the steps of first rate house construction with Fil explaining the ins and outs of what should be done and what not. I cannot say enough of what a worry free experience it has been. Total professionalism on the part of Chatsworth. The only thing I am sorry about is that it is coming to an end.”

Gerry Morelli

“Chatsworth managed our project with clarity, accountability, and incredible attention to detail. No question was ever left unanswered, and a workable solution was found for every problem. Chatsworth’s own high standards meant that the bar was lifted on every component of the project. I would recommend Chatsworth to anyone who values integrity and quality.”

Margot Stevens

“The Oakville Golf Club is currently working on a considerable renovation of our clubouse. Working as our project and construction manager is Fil Capuano and his team at Chatsworth Fine Homes. I have been very impressed with their work and knowledge throughout this project. They have provided timely reports, enlightened the club about various cost saving alternatives and have worked extremely well on our behalf with the many trades. I would strongly recommend Fil and his team at Chatsworth for other projects they are being considered for.”

Dave Fox, CCM – GM Oakville Golf Course

“We are sooo happy with our addition and backyard paradise AND our Grandchildren love their new playroom, under the Great Room .”

Victoria Shipp

“I am writing to offer my strongest level of recommendation to the work of Fil Capuano and his team at Chatsworth Fine Homes. I have worked with Fil on many projects over the past 20 years or more and his team brings a level of professionalism and detail not seen in many construction and project managers. His attention to quality is evident in every aspect of his work, resulting in the construction of some magnificent projects. His reporting is excellent and his paperwork exceeds all other builders we have dealt with. Fil and his team are on time and every effort is made to get the best possible price from the sub-trades. His projects are well documented in terms of budget and his communication skills are excellent. I would have no hesitation in giving the strongest of recommendations to their firm.”
