Thank-you for supporting a local, family-run business!

Custom. Creative. Carpentry.

We offer full-spectrum home renovations, engaging all steps in the process from design/consultation to coordinating subcontractors to the highest quality hands-on carpentry and tile work itself.

We live and work in beautiful Brighton, Ontario. 

We love what we do.

Darstar Mission:
1. To utilize our skills and gifts to provide high quality, creative, custom carpentry services to our local community;
2. To develop and maintain trusted relationships with our valued customers and local trade partners; and
3. To use our small business as a vehicle for giving back to our local and global communities through spreading of positivity and donations of time, profits, and materials.

What do we love doing?

Decks, Pergolas, and Gazebos

We love, love, love designing and building outdoor spaces of all sizes - the more creative, the better! Let's face it, for at least half of the year, your deck/gazebo CAN and SHOULD be an extension of your family's living space!

We work with you from the start, assessing your needs, assisting with the permit process, working with local vendors, and building you the deck of your dreams! No finishing touches are left out - we want you to LOVE your new outdoor space!

Next to kitchens, bathrooms are the most shared spaces in a home. Bathroom trends are always changing, but clean, functional, beautiful spaces are always in style. From custom tile showers, bath surrounds, and floors to more traditional tubs and inserts, we love making your bathroom dreams come true!

We work with local, trusted vendors and sub-contractors to make this process as easy and efficient as possible. We are available to help you with design and product selection, or we can work with any ideas you may have.

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is the most used and shared space for most families. We know you have been looking and drooling over something new.

We enjoy working with you from the very start, designing custom kitchen spaces with your family and your tastes in mind. We work closely with local vendors, or we give you the tools you need to acquire the materials to make the dream a reality.

Interior Renovations and Additions

When you are thinking of changing ANY space in your home, the odds are high that you will need something renovated, and even possibly extended outside your current wallspace. We enjoy working with you from the START on these - We want to hear your ideas, needs, and wants, to come up with a feasible design WITH YOU that will work FOR YOU. 

We work with local vendors, sub-trades, and permit officials to make the whole renovation process as easy and convenient for you as possible, and we are there until it's done. That's right - we stick with your project until completion, completing all carpentry, finishing, and cleaning ourselves to ensure you can just walk in and use your new space when we leave!

Darby and Jessica did a fantastic job on our kitchen reno. They surpassed our expectations, and I'm still in awe every time I look at it. They are an absolute pleasure to work with and we only trusted them to do this project. Thank you Darstar and everyone involved for creating our beautiful kitchen!

Darby and Jess are nothing but professional from beginning to end. They truly love their craft and you can see it in the finished product. It is a work of art.

Kara M., Brighton

Darby and Jes built our home in Presqu'ile in 2016. It was a delightful experience. Two wonderful people with so much talent. We highly recommend Darstar Carpentry. They are the best!

Great, talented, friendly couple that do AMAZING WORK!

"We have had Darby do several jobs for us. He and Jessica built a custom living room/sun room for us. Their attention to detail and professionalism topped off with a quick smile and friendly personalities made them wonderful to work with. We still get "Wow's" when someone new sees the room. Darby recently completed a custom shower and granite countertop for us. The work is precise and perfect!"

I'm over the moon with how my tub/shower reno turned out. Darby and Jessica definitely brought my vision to life...and light! :) I highly recommend this dynamic duo. Project #2 is already in motion. Can't wait to get started!
