Custom Built Homes

Why use a General Contractor? In the words of Jim Locke, author of “A Well Built House“:

“A custom builder or general contractor comes with few strings attached because his work history is broad, not repetitive. If you put decent price on your time, you’ll lose money at general contracting your own house. If you have little experience and plan to build your house yourself, look at it as a hobby or a fling. If you seriously want a good house built well, without medical side effects, hire it done. ”

GEM Quality Homes’ owner Graham Watson is a Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter. We can provide services from design to finished product. We are a general contractor and custom home builder. We pride ourselves in building beautiful custom homes. Like our motto says “We love what we do and it shows in our work”.

A beautiful addition to any property, a carriage house can be a great source for secondary income. We have utilized it as an in-law suite and have ample parking and storage with a large double garage below. Two bedrooms and one bath with an open concept living/dining/kitchen make this a cozy little property.

Modern Farmhouse Project

Modern Farmhouse is how we like to describe this beautiful custom build. Utilizing a Farmhouse style structure for the building with large overhangs and steep gabled rooflines, your initial thought would go to farmhouse architecture. But this house has much more to offer than your traditional farmhouse feel. The exterior is clad in tough rib metal siding, bringing a modern industrial look to its facade. Stark black and white contrasts give it simplicity along with a big impact.  Read more …..

Morton Project

Our first full build and filled with lots of love. There were many fine details in this home, including ICF foundation, custom timber stair railing, custom wood and stone fireplace mantle just to name a few. Additional square footage was added by creating a suspended slab below the garage creating a one of a kind theatre room complete with projection screen. A beautiful Hardi board siding finish made this home hard to resist.
