I started my company in 1994. I started construction with Departure Bay Construction in 1991, building residential and commercial construction out of high school. In 1993 I worked full time for my Dad's company, DG Schlitz Construction and Crane Service, working heavy-duty commercial installation and demolition in the sawmill/pulp mill sector. As both began to slow down, I decided to go on my own. First doing renovations/ decks / fences. I would do any job that paid the bills. As years passed, I worked other opportunities as they presented themselves, and I found myself back into the residential Home Framing again.

Since 2000, We have been building family homes for many years in the mid-island area. "We are not a Fast building crew. We Are a steady, consistent Building crew". We are proud of our finished product. Our small team means better quality control. I let my product speak for its self. Over the years, we have had many folks comment on our homes. We keep working and doing our best to keep our buyers happy. 

"Having a warranty on your new home is one thing, but It's the builder who stands behind his product and principles that is most important. I tell people when buying our homes. If you like me, then you should buy the house. If you don't, you Should probably keep looking. I'm going to be the guy doing the repairs if required, not the warranty guys."
