How to get the ball rolling? Do you need an architect, surveyor, environmental engineer or drafting service? Do you have a design in mind or a blueprint already sketched out? We have years of experience working with these professionals and we will direct you to and work with the very best consultants required to progress your designs into full plans for permit and construction.
Design and planning
From the moment the first shovel breaks ground, CDH will be in control of your project. As the general contractor we will employ and manage every sub trade required to take the build through to completion. This includes all services required for landscaping, hydro, wells and septic installation; specialist trades including electrical, mechanical and renewable energy installers; plus interior finishes such as kitchen design and manufacture, drywall, tiling, painting, concrete polishing and even cleaning services.
This is our specialty. From a conventional stick frame construction to structural post and beam and/or using engineered lumber, we have experience building it. Our team will translate your designs into a built reality, quickly, safely and efficiently to ensure that your house meets and exceeds all required standards. Then, we'll transform the building with expert finishing carpentry, beautiful materials, and sometimes unusual techniques, to create your dream home.
Top quality framing and finishing carpentry
