“I took a look at the new [model home]. Man it’s fantastic in there. I was asking who picked all the fixtures, colors… pillars etc, in all of the Spider Lake Country Estate houses, everything has a certain flare and a clear design. It was you [Karen]! I wanted to thank you because I love my place so much. I think you have a great eye and real talent. Everything works, and i know it’s hard… but these houses are spicy and EVERYONE loves them!”

Mike C,
Owner of the original Spider Lake Country Estates Model Home.

“We moved into 48 Willowhill Ridge from Colby Village in Nov. 05, one of the first in the sub division. Our building experience was completely painless, professional and on schedule. We just love our new home and take every opportunity to show it to friends. As the development continues to grow, and all the residents are taking such great pride in ownership, the property values are growing very quickly. It seems that everyone is doing the “keeping up with the Jones’s” thing with high-end landscaping addition of out buildings, pools, hot tubs, etc. Still, with the very large lots and well thought out placement of foundations, we still have great privacy and quiet. Our commute to Halifax is a breeze, 14km, one light. We have nothing but good to say about the developers, builders and the neighborhood of Spider Lake. Thank You Nickkels.”

“We purchased a model home from Nickkels Contracting last April. The quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail is present throughout. Being a model home, they did a great job in choosing the cabinets, the flooring and the colour scheme. They also transformed the lower level into a beautiful and functional space in record time. We want to extend our gratitude to all of the people and tradesmen involved in the process.”

“Moving to Spider Lake Country Estates was the best decision we made when it came to finding what we wanted. We searched for several months all throughout HRM and came up with a custom built bungalow that fit our budget and lifestyle.
The area is so close to everything. Even though I work in Halifax I have a quick commute and only encounter one set of traffic lights before I get to the office.
Nickkels Contracting came up with some different and innovative design concepts and they incorporated things we were looking for in the design. It was a good experience. We would recommend the subdivision and Nickkels Contracting to anyone considering having a house built.”

“Spider Lake Country Estates allows us to feel like we’re living in the country, yet still enjoy the conveniences of being close to the city and it’s amenities.”

“Four years ago we purchased a home at 45 Bonita Drive , Dartmouth , Nova Scotia , which was built by Mr. Brett Sheffer. As new residents to this province my wife and I were concerned about the quality of a new home as we did not know any persons in the home building trade or any other related trades to get any opinion about homebuilders in this area.

Call it luck or fate but we were very fortunate to have a home built by Mr. Sheffer, quite simply, he builds quality homes and I have absolutely no problem recommending him to build your home. The bottom line is this! Would I buy this house again after living in for four years – definitely. I would ask Mr. Sheffer to build my next home – absolutely. ”

“Upon selling our home in Bedford , we decided to build our dream home. We had heard Brett Sheffer of Nickkels Contracting had a reliable name building unique homes tailored to his client’s specific designs. We visited a home Nickkels Contruction build and we were impressed with the quality of work, attention to detail, and unique open concept design.

We met with Mr. Sheffer at our home. He produced a priced quote and contract of our dream home that was agreeable to my wife and I. Upon reviewing our plans he was confident he could build our “dream home”. The house was 2800 square feet, with an open concept, and many unique details specific to each room. We met with Mr. Sheffer at our lot and discussed feasible locations where the house could be situated to where we, as clients, wanted it. Mr. Sheffer encouraged continual input especially relative to internal unique designs and details.

There was a continual exchange of ideas between us and Mr. Sheffer and his head carpenter, Bill. Bill is very creative and very easy to communicate and articulate with. Any changes were met with a positive and constructive approach. Mr. Sheffer would say “if that’s what you want, then let’s get it done.” Mr. Sheffer was shown detailed pictures from unique “home design” magazines, and the rooms in our dream home mirror those pictures. He tackled all situations with a calming enthusiasm. Mr. Sheffer’s wife, Karen, who dealt with the financial side, was very easy to deal with, in reference to any questions we had.

We are very pleased with our final product. Our “dream home” is very unique in design. The compliments we have received from people who have been to our home, have been glowing and impressive, and have made us very proud. ”

My family and I have lived in Spider Lake for over seven years. We have lived in five different houses, in five different communities; yet it wasn’t until we moved to Spider Lake Estates did we feel like we finally moved into our home.

Spider Lake is more than a subdivision; it is a community. As a community, we take pride in the homes and relationships we’ve built with our neighbours. We organize events from sleigh rides and fireworks on New Year’s Eve to family BBQs in the summer just because we want to make time to see one another. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and the birth of children living in our neighbourhood as well as grandchildren. We are more than just neighbours; we are friends.


This is our second home built by Nickkels Contracting Limited. We are extremely pleased with the quality and workmanship of this home that Brett designed himself that meets our everyday needs. Spider Lake Country Estates is a quite country living community that is close to all amenities. There is nowhere else we would rather live!
