Contractor Spotlight Series - Jackie Elliot, Lady of the House Carpentry, Salmon Arm BC

“Quality done right”. That’s what customers have come to expect when they hire Red Seal carpenter Jackie Elliott for any job.

Located in Salmon Arm, BC, Jackie operates Lady of the House Carpentry and has recently signed on as part of the Phyxter Home Services team: a co-op of local, qualified, and thoroughly vetted independent contractors whose mission is to offer first-class service at a fair price.

Local Carpentry at its Best!

Jackie’s carpentry and finishing work range from total bathroom overhauls and custom entryway makeovers, to smaller jobs like changing out trim and painting.

She is a self-described perfectionist but with good reason.

“I have had the chance to work with many who took pride in their work and showed me to do so as well.

Along the way, I found home renovations were my calling and have specialized in this area now for 15 years”, says Jackie, who fell in love with carpentry at a young age in her grandpa’s workshop.

Now, it is Jackie’s customers who are falling in love with the quality work she produces.

Rave Reviews

“I found Jackie to be professional with a good eye for detail.

She is very good at interior decorating including gyprock, painting, tiling, and finishing. Jackie is outgoing, pleasant, and eager to please.

I would highly recommend Lady of The House Carpentry for your next project”, raved Debra Giles, one of Jackie’s most recent clients.

Currently a one-woman show, Jackie is excited about joining forces with the Phyxter Home Services team.

“I am excited to see what we can all do as a professional trade family. Working with a group of skilled professionals will be a game-changer for my company,” says Jackie, who is already changing the game in her own way.

With women making up only about 10% of the construction sector workforce, Jackie is a role model for other aspiring female carpenters, a responsibility she takes pride in and welcomes.

“I make sure the job is done right without cutting corners. 

Through an exceptional work ethic and attention to detail, I love being a strong, positive role model while supporting my two beautiful daughters and other women in the industry,” she notes.
