I was born in Chatham but from the time I was born my parents rented a cottage on Lake Vernon and eventually owned a cottage on the lake. I was educated at the University of Western Onario and the University of Toronto as a Geologist and taught school for years which gave me the summers to spend on Lake Vernon. I have for years operated Keevil Construction and have been an active building contractor on Lake Vernon and in the surrounding area. The company has built stairs and decks and docks and boat houses and cottages and Muskoka rooms and pretty much anything you can think of that has to do with a cottage. Unlike John and Ian, my wife Jane and I live full time in Huntsville. We have had a cottage on Big Island on Lake Vernon as well for 10 years. My experience in the construction business has provided me years of barging experience all over the lake. We hope to bring that experience to you, to help you with your transportation needs when they arise.
