Our process made simple

  • Your Dreams

    This is where it all begins. We talk about your house and what is important to you in its design – if you’re not sure, we help you define what that is! There’s no limits here – this is where we put your dreams onto paper and discover what kinds of features in your custom home interest you.

  • Your Property

    It’s time to find a suitable property that fits your needs if you haven’t found one already. We walk properties with you that you are interested in and help find the one that will achieve your requirements, taking in all the important considerations such as building restrictions, zoning concerns – even the way the sun will shine through the windows while you enjoy your view and sip your morning coffee.

  • Your Design

    This is where the real fun begins. We work with you to complete a design that meets your needs in consideration of your chosen property and building requirements. Once this is done, we lay out a cost analysis based on your chosen plan and level of desired finishing.

  • Your Agreement

    The design meetings have led to the final cost and building timeline as we prepare the construction agreement and move forward.

  • Your Build

    The efforts put into your design are ready to materialize. Construction begins and seeing your dreams become a reality first-hand is one of the most fulfilling parts of the home building process. Our personalized approach allows you to be involved through the entire process as much or as little as you like, all while keeping it simple and enjoyable for you.

    Your home is built by our team of talented carpenters who take your home from excavation to completion. We partner with the best trades throughout who we’ve built lasting and trusting relationships with over the past two decades.

  • Your Variations

    We assist you in finding the products you want that fit your lifestyle. From flooring to cabinets to lighting we have the answers for you and take care of all the stress. We’re here to answer all your questions along the way.

  • Your Home

    This is the last and best step of all – your build is done, your final touches are in place, your home is ready! Move in and relax… it’s time to make beautiful memories in your new home!

We purchased a rancher style home under construction by Owen Gardiner Construction.

We always felt listened to and treated with respect. Overall, our home construction experience was very positive. We would not hesitate to build with Owen and his team in the future.

Brett and Colleen

We have been working with Owen Gardiner and his team for over 5 years on several projects and have been nothing but impressed by their level of communication and quality of construction. Last year we hired Owen and his team to build our family’s “Forever Home”. Choosing a builder for this type of project can be stressful and overwhelming to most but we knew their team was the right fit. The Owen Gardiner team was professional and always kept the build on schedule. They were always happy to answer any questions and made sure that we got the dream home we always wanted.

Thank you Owen, Pam and the rest of the Owen Gardiner Construction team!

Dustin and Jenna Layzell

We had the luxury of working with Owen and his team on three house builds and couldn’t be more happy.  We built a dream home in the Foothills along with a rental property in Nanaimo in 2022 / 2023.  Both builds were seamless from designing to building all the way to landscaping and handing over the keys.  Owen has amazing vision delivery in all aspects of the build.  We let the designers and Owen know our ideas of what we wanted along with our wish list and came out with great homes.  It was great to work with a team who knows where to spend and where to save to come in on budget. We toured the neighbours of our rental and there was a substantial difference in quality and craftsmanship from an OGC build and the other spec builds.  There is a reason OGC has such a great name in Nanaimo.  I would highly recommend Owen and team for any project.
