Overall we had a good experience and wouldn't change anything. There were a few people along the way that I didn't have a good experience with but there we people that were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process.

I've been living in Barrhaven since 1990. My husband passed away in 2014, we were living in a 2 storey house in Barrhaven. It was difficult for him to get around. After he passed away, I looked for a bungalow but there was nothing that suited me. In 2016 Tamarack built bungalows, I was so happy that I bought one. I love everything about my bungalow, Tamarack built them according to seniors. I love the porch, I love the area. I love everything. l love the neighbours, we all get along and we all help each other. I just want to thank Tamarack for making my life very happy. I want to thank Mike, Carla, Debbie and Mike at the office for making my life easier. I love the area, I go for walks along the Jock River with my neighbour , its so relaxing. Thank you Tamarack.

I would look at different exterior doors. Doors were not installed properly ( back and front) and meant that water and air came into the house. I would also look at weather sound proofing could be put in washroom walls and walls facing a busy street.
Service received was timely, although problems with our doors persisted in the first year and haven't been solved to date.

More communication in regard to the status. I only received one e-mail to date saying the foundation was started. I drove by recently and see that they are moving along quickly though.

Nothing. I truly feel that Tamarack is at the top of their game. This is my second Tamarack home and my husband and I have been pleased both times! We are looking forward to continuing the building process! :)

The only thing would be to have a list within the model homes of what the upgrades are (not simply identifying that the - hardwood - is an upgrade, but which one was selected) or have it readily available at the design center. It would be nice to have that information if they are upgrades you'd like to select for your new home. But that's simply a would be nice. The staff were amazing, very knowledgeable, helpful and extremely pleasant to work with.

After we committed to buying the house, there was some dicfficulty gettng us into the Design Centre before we went back home. (NL) It seems to me that the Design Centre needs to have a greater and perhaps stream-lined process for out of towners. We are retired military so we have been through this process a number of times. We recognize there are people that take months to select their options but we have also done it in a few hours. We did get in before we left and then worked with our consutant through email and to date are very satisified but the idea of leaving and having to come back just to choose options was almost a show stopper for us.

We are delighted with our home and the service provided by Tamarack Homes and cannot think of anything we would change! We downsized considerably but realize we still have a lot of "stuff" to purge!

All is well. I would like to suggest you one thing that they were not able to explain about the upgrades like extra window in the basement, brick in the front in triangle area . Optional upgrade list is very important for customer. Overall experience with Tamarack is amazing !!!!!!!!!

I absolutely enjoyed both the sales and design centre processes. However, if I have to change one thing, i would say I'd like to have a bit more time with the designer at the design centre. I felt that both appointments with the designer weren't long enough. Given the size of our home, we had a huge list of selections and we had to make a couple of hasty choices towards the end of the appointments. We ended up having to follow up after the first appointment to make adjustments. The designer was very accommodating. However, this could have been avoided if we had just a bit more time with her initially. Overall, great experience. Thank you

Everyone I met was professional and genuinely helpful. I like that the Tamarack build is smaller/more community focused over other new developments. I really enjoy nature trails and like that there is also going to be public access to the creek with pathways as part of a larger community building vision.

To better understand the whole process of buying a newly built home. The tamarack team, Jaqui and Carolyn, were very patient with us and helped us through the process and answered our many questions.

I can't think of anything because I have been extremely satisfied. Your customer care representative, site supervisor, home inspector and repair professional were all very helpful and knowledgeable. Probably, if you can offer more choices in landscaping (during design center stage), such as - lawn vs Stones vs Interlock etc., that would be great. For example - I would have loved to save some money on grass / lawn in backyard and spent extra to get interlock. But these are minor issues. Overall, you shouldn't fix what is not broken!

We were very happy with our experiences with the sales centre staff.
(I only indicated '5' on the questions regarding design centre appointments because we did not make any selections as our home was fully completed before purchase).

Overall very happy. Mike who oversaw the one month repairs was exceptional and his attention to detail made us really happy as well. Only change I would recommend is a quick exterior cleanup before closing. We had pieces of construction materials in our driveway and on our lawn, and cigarette butts off on our back porch and back yard.

I would make sure that workmanship is at a high standard because it reflects on the builder. Sometimes workers who are not as careful and try to make short cuts on the job. My home is a wonderful design. I am especially pleased it is equipped with A/C and HRV and extra vents throughout the house. The open concept on the second floor has a warm and welcoming feel to it. Also, the balcony is just perfect.

Thank you for building such a beautiful home.

Overall, I have been happy with Tamarack. My issues have come up with some of the major repairs and people trying to "pass the buck". There often is a few meetings of going back and forth and it takes multiple meetings and requests for the items to be finalized.

Within the last few years we bought a few condos and house but this was the best customer experience we ever received. We would not hesitate to recommend this builder to our friends, family and any other people. We are very happy with our new home.
