Ambrose Custom Builders is an Artisan building firm comprised of a husband and wife team who bring a passion for excellence to the design/build process. Managing a small number of projects at any given time, Chris stays intimately involved with all design and build elements of each project.
Chris has been involved with building for over 30 years. First working as a carpenter during his school years, his love for design and building continued throughout his corporate career. Moves from Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Chicago with the company he worked for, provided Chris and Brigitte the opportunity to buy, renovate and sell homes. They completed 4 major renovations and one new build before forming Ambrose Custom Builders, in 2007.
A Design graduate of College Francois-Xavier-Garneau in Quebec City, Brigitte quickly rose through the ranks of the design profession working with prestigious firms such as Epps Interiors, Atkinson McKee and Design Associates leading multi-million dollar award winning projects.
The Ambrose focus is to create spaces that draw from the New England charm that people love, while adding openness to the design plans and a strong connection with the houses external environment. Particular attention is paid to solar orientation, and how natural light will positively influence a home throughout the seasons. Antique materials are often incorporated into their projects to add timeless beauty.
All homes built are Energy Star rated and Chris is certified as a Green Building Professional through the National Association of Homebuilders. His projects follow many of the guidelines set forth in the National Green Standard.
