Our Process

our Process

You know you want to build your dream home – but where to start! If building a custom home is something you have thought about we are here to help.

This is an opportunity to design a home to match your needs and priorities. Whether you are a young family starting out, ready to move your growing family to that bigger home, empty nesters getting ready to downsize, or upsizing again for multi generational family needs, you can create a space that is specific to you – from design and style preferences, to door sizes and counter heights. By reflecting on not only our own personal life experience, but also on the experiences of our past clients, we can say “been there, done that”! and can share that knowledge and experience with you.

We care about your vision for your new home and the features and finishes that customize the home to you. We work with you to review your plans and make suggestions and then help you come up with a budget that works for you. We offer a transparent fixed management fee contract that puts the budget and priorities for spending decisions and financial control in your hands.

Communication is an important part of the process and we are there to meet with you at each stage to walk through the house, make suggestions and decisions and answer any questions.

We have a team of quality trades and suppliers that we work with. We are on site every day to make sure everyone has what they need to keep the job moving along smoothly, and that the work is being done according to the plans and to a high standard of quality.

As a licensed registered builder under the BC Homeowner Protection Act, we offer a 2-5-10 Year Travelers Canada Insurance Company. Learning is a lifelong process – part of being a registered builder includes ongoing professional development covering topics such as Building Code Changes, new and emerging construction technologies and requirements, and sustainable construction trends including Building Green and Energy Efficiency.

But really, the most important part of our job – one that starts at the very beginning and ends after we hand you the keys – is to work at building a trusting, transparent relationship with clients like you; one that provides you with the confidence that every aspect of your home will be built well and to your specifications.

And that’s the part of the job we like best!

We’re with you from the start

As custom builders, F.M. Construction can offer you a full range of services, assisting you in the early stages of site selection as well as with design and budget. We’ll work hand-in-hand with your chosen architect or designer and can even assist by recommending some top-notch designers in the Greater Vancouver area whom we’ve come to trust. We’re eager to listen to your ideas and goals and are happy to make suggestions to help you adhere to both your design aesthetic and your budget. 

As your project progresses, we keep tabs on our sub trades and suppliers, all of whom we’ve chosen due to their reputation for quality work and customer service. We’re on site when you’re not because we know each step is important to you. And when problems arise, we’re there to offer solutions that are amenable to both you and your wallet.

With more than two decades of experience in the Greater Vancouver area and an owner who’s a skilled finishing carpenter, we’ve forged a reputation as one of the go-to builders in the area for custom home construction. Satisfied customers point to our quality of craftsmanship, commitment to delivering excellent work, honesty and straightforwardness, ability to stick to a schedule, and much more as the reason they chose F.M. These accolades from our clients mean everything to us and we’re delighted when they recommend us to family and friends as well. 

At F.M. Construction, attention to detail really is paramount and we want to be sure everyone who works on our homes has the same work ethic as we do. That’s why we carefully choose our sub trades and suppliers so that there are no unwanted surprises along the way. As a matter of fact, we’ve worked with some of our sub trades and suppliers for more than 20 years because we trust their skills and believe in their commitment to do things right the first time.  We have also built custom homes for some subtrades and suppliers – we feel that is a testament to the quality and value of our product.
