Client Reviews
We are building our vacation home and Jon was recommended to us by our builder. We already had some ideas and sketches when we met with Jon, and he quickly helped us turn our ideas into reality. We really appreciated Jon's quick response and attention to details. It was a pleasure working with him!

Jeff Tucker
Project Manager
Bradley Homes

We are adding a second story addition to our bungalow and we hired J.C. Design Group to assist us with the preparation and planning for our project.  Jonathan is a consummate professional that has a true passion for design. He took the time to visit our house where we discussed various ideas for the project and different options we were considering. Jon was able to take our ideas and put them to paper with an initial design that really set the process in motion.

Over the next few weeks we inquired about different options in terms of layout and space planning. Jon is not afraid to offer his opinion and suggested a number of incredible ideas that we simply wouldn't have thought of. One thing in particular that stood out to us was how accessible Jon was throughout the process. We had the impression that he was as excited about this project as we are!

Jon met with us again to review final drawings and deliver our drawing package which will allow us to apply for the permit. Just recently, he sent a 3D rendering of the project (we were not expecting this) and we cannot wait to get started on the next phase!

We cannot say enough good things about Jon and his team and highly recommend them!

Jon provided tremendous service during my chalet renovation and re-design. He took ownership of the entire project and ensured he delivered a final product on time, on budget, and consistent with my goals. Jon was very consultative during the design process, and I'm extremely happy with the result. I would not hesitate to recommend Jon to anyone looking for a talented professional to handle their design needs.
M. Mitchell


We had the pleasure of working with Jonathan Church, J.C. Design Group for our major renovation and 2nd level addition. We had interviewed a few architects & designers, but once we met Jonathan and listened to some of his ideas we immediately knew we had found the designer we wanted to work with. Jonathan listened to our needs and what we wanted in our new space and came up with a very creative design that met both my husband and my design style - we loved it! Jonathan set and met all timelines established for our project. Jonathan is professional, courteous, highly creative and very knowledgeable in the design field. I would without hesitation (and have) highly recommended Jonathan to others.

J. Laforge


Jonathan from J.C. Design Group was excellent in helping me design an enclosed front porch addition to my 1920's Leslieville home in Toronto. Collaborating with him was an extremely enjoyable experience as his eye for detail was just what I wanted. As a homeowner he helped explain the City of Toronto's permitting process to me and attended structural engineering meetings when asked to ensure all construction design details were met.

In a deadline driven business, I'm sometimes required to seek the assistance of other professionals; Jonathan proved to be just that. His services were used on multiple residential design projects, specifically, detached single family dwellings.
During our working relationship, Jonathan was diligent when it came to ensuring his client was satisfied. He never hesitated to take time for conversations and/or meetings; furthermore, his progress at each stage of design was accurate and delivered promptly.
Jonathan has continued to keep in touch and send regards. He remains a valuable contact for future projects.

Bradley Homes

Jonathan was a pleasure to work with! He listened to our ideas and the reasons behind them and made sure he could deliver on what we were looking for. We are excited to see our dream home become a reality!
J. Holmes


I've gone to the JC Design Group getting a design to finish my basement to rent out for a tenant. I had several challenges to overcome like where to install my bathroom and kitchen. Jon was able to come up with smart, effective solutions and now my basement looks great and is currently rented out.

Contractor & Client

Jonathan Church at J.C. Design Group assisted me in working on our dream cottage in Muskoka.  We were able to work alongside him to ensure we encompassed everything we could hope for into the space and he was able to add features that we couldn't imagine not having now. No detail was missed! 

Was a pleasure to work with!
J. Charles


I had a great experience working with Jonathan. He brought so many creative ideas to the table that I would have never thought of. He was very easy to contact throughout the whole process, and was extremely quick to send back revised drawings and plans. All of the drawings and design plan have exceeded my expectations and with the help of J.C. Design Group, I was able to create something of much more value to my overall project. I can't say enough good things and would recommend Jonathan to everyone!   

K. Horvat


We worked with Jonathan on our last project for a custom bungalow design. He is very attentive and detail oriented which is vital in this business. Two important aspects stood out to us through the design/build process. Jonathan would set a timeline and then meet that timeline (which is not always the case in the industry), and his plans where flawless and completely user/and permit friendly.

I would highly recommend Jonathan and J.C. Design Group Inc, and I look forward to working with him again on future builds.

Extremely knowledgeable and professional. John did an excellent job providing design services for my new condo. Very helpful from an architectural touch with sizing and measurements of furniture/layout. Great eye for color and design as well!
Highly recommend!
