Where Dreams Are Built.

Welcome to Black Fox Construction, where we take your wildest dreams and build them for you.

It is about family and friends. Being close to nature. Enjoying happy hour on the dock, or kayaking at sunset. At Black Fox Construction, we build beautiful lakefront homes, and we love what we do.

Bill Scurfield, the owner of Black Fox, embraced the cottage lifestyle a long time ago. As a Kenora Ontario cottage and custom cabin builder, Black Fox has all the tools, equipment, and expertise to build on the most challenging terrain. We work collaboratively with you to deliver a spectacular result while doing all the hard work so that you can maintain focus on your day-to-day.

A Black Fox is a rare and special animal rarely seen in the LOTW area. We chose this as our name because it reflects how we view each of our client’s construction projects as a rare and special event.


We worked closely with Bill and his crew for 2 years on our project on LOTW. They were very respectful and responsive. They always took the time to address our ideas, comments, and questions throughout the build. We would highly recommend working with them.

We had Bill Scurfield carry out extensive outdoor work in 2019. The crew that carried out the work were highly skilled, and the end result could not have been better. We were thrilled with our project, thank you.

Black Fox did an exterior renovation on my house and garage and gave it a fresh, new look. They completed the project on budget and on-time and went the extra mile for the finishing touches. I couldn’t be happier with the result!

Last summer, we decided to build an extension to our cabin on Lake Of The Woods. We hired Bill and his company to do the entire project. He was extremely helpful in reviewing potential options for this addition, and once we decided on the plan, he took over and was responsible for the entire project.

We have been extremely pleased with Bill and his crew. Were we to start over, I would certainly use Bill again and intend to use him for any of my future needs.

Bill made what we thought would be a stressful experience into a fun and seamless project. He is enthusiastic and places a great deal of thought and care into each project. Communication is always on point, he is always accessible and responsive, and the workmanship is expert.

The care and attention to detail are ever-present. Various materials and selections are offered so one can make an informed and best choice for their project. We are so grateful to have found Bill, Black Fox. Professional, personable, and beyond knowledgeable.

Building near Kenora is a challenging yet unique opportunity to nestle into the natural environment and enjoy lake life to the fullest. Being first-time builders in the area we needed an experienced contractor to make knowledgeable choices during construction.

Bill and his crew managed to combine excellent communication skills with solid know-how to leave us confident and informed that the build was moving along smoothly and expertly. Attention to detail was evident in both work and discussion.
