Design Consultant, General Manager
Ben lives on an acreage with his wife Korlinda and 6 children. After graduating from SAIT in 1994 with an honors degree in Engineering design and drafting technology he started working for a local construction company and fell in love with the building industry. He received his Journeyman carpentry ticket in 1998 and started Reside Construction in 1999.
The combination of design training and carpentry equipped him with a superior eye for detail quality and the ability to visualize homes while they are still on paper. At any stage of a project, from design to handing over the keys, Ben will be there to answer any questions you might have and leave you assured that your home is being expertly managed. He chooses to surround himself with the best team possible, the subcontractors are held to impeccable standards of service, integrity, responsiveness and safety.
Everyone can always find enough money to do the same project twice but our clients prefer to build the project right the first time. .
Jake lives on an acreage with his wife Caroline and 6 children and several foster children. After high school he worked on several farms, primarily on a dairy farm for 10 years. Jake was always interested in discovering how things worked and was very inquisitive. Working on a farm helped him get a wide background of experience in carpentry, woodworking, electrical, mechanical systems and everything else it takes to keep things running smoothly.
This wide variety of experience helped Jake enter the construction industry in 1997 for a local home builder doing everything from carpentry, tool repair to project management. Not only did he have a superior eye for quality but he also was able to understand the systems that the subtraders were working on. He also built his own home in 2005 and started Jakes Renovations in 2006. After 14 years of renovating Jake joined Reside Custom Builders as a project manager.
Do you have ideas for your build with lots of images on your clipboard but don’t know how to put it all together? This is what we specialize in, the true definition of custom that we call blank slate design. We don’t just move a few walls from a previous design, we start fresh for every unique person, family or business. Ben has the design and building experience necessary and teams up with other designers to deliver a design and product that suits you and your budget. Ask us about our design-build process, we would love to help!
At Reside Custom Builders our vision is to transform all your ideas and dreams into a build that will last for generations.
When your unique design is finished we start scheduling your build. We give our client free access to a project management app called BuilderTrend that helps control the flow of communication for clients, builder and trades. We manage schedules, photos, drawings and all documents, selections plus much more. So you can be in touch with your project wherever you are.
Our project manager is on site every day for quality control, maintaining schedule and communicating with suppliers and trades. We also understand things change as the project progresses and we understand that Custom means there may be changes along we way. We are flexible and will go out of our way to make sure you are satisfied before construction progresses.
Celebrate! The build is complete and ready for you to move in, you can relax in the comfort and security of the build of your dreams. We will have your build registered with a warranty program and go above and beyond the minimum standards to ensure your satisfaction.
