Our Staff


Lord and Lady Construction is a truly "home-grown" business.  It is run by our two owners, husband and wife team, Thomas and Laura Cavendish.  Mae Thomas is our full time office and customer service manager.  Read below for more details about our on-site crew.  


Whenever sub-contractors are required we strive to work with contractors whom with worked with before, and can trust their skill, judgement and experience.  We typically work with: Top Line Electric  for electrical work; we now have our own licensed plumber and HVAC on crew; Advanced Insulation for spray foam insulation; Source Julien for gas fireplace or wood stoves; Twin Bay Glass for all glass surrounds and mirrors; Berg or Cluff Well Drilling for all well needs; and Popp Excavating for excavation work.
