We'd like to welcome back our design director Tiana, who was away the last year on maternity leave. We are happy to have her back and are thrilled to be working with her again!
She has returned on a full time basis and will be jumping back into overseeing all our current projects from new builds to renovations!
For more information on all the designers we have on staff please visit our meet the team page!
When you build your dream home or renovate your existing home with us, the simple fact is that we are a collective of families, working for your family. It is undoubtedly the crew on site, and the staff behind the scenes that makes this company a success. We value each and every one of our employees, so it's always hard to see someone leave. We'd like to say a bittersweet goodbye to one of our carpenter's assistant, Fern! Fern has been with JDL Homes for over two years and although we're sad to see her go, we fully support her decision to move to the island. We are excited to see what the future holds for her and wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavours!
We'd also like to take this time to welcome some new faces to our team:
Matt - Red Seal Carpenter
Chris & Connor - Carpenters
Cooper & Donovan - Carpenter's Assistant
We are excited to have them join our team!
We'll be exhibiting at the Greater Vancouver Home Builders' Association (GVHBA) Spring Home Reno Show!
The GVHBA's Spring Home Reno Show has one focus -- providing consumers with professional home renovation information. The one-day only event will feature booths of renovation contractors and renovation-related products and services, seminars to provide homeowners with important information in all areas of renovations, and opportunities to participate in Ask a Pro -- free one-on-one consultations with renovation professionals.
We will also be presenting a seminar on "To Renovate or Build New" at 2pm.
The event is free to attend and pre-registration for seminars is encouraged.
Make sure you bring your renovation questions and speak to Doug or Jeff Langford about your next project!

Thank you to everyone who made this year's BC Home + Garden Show such a success!
2014 was our first year in our own booth space at the BC Home + Garden Show - and what a first year it was! We are happy to announce our amazing design and build team was honoured to be named Best Medium Booth at this year's show!
The weather was snowy, so we send extra thanks to everyone who braved the crumby weather to come down and see us. We were so excited to hear about all of your projects, look at your plans and drawings and talk about building your dream homes! We look forward to working with many of you in the future.
Special thanks to our in-house Design Director, Janeen Puri, our Operations Manager Anne Zhong and Jay Ward, our craftsman extraordinaire, for all their hard work designing and building our booth. Well done, everyone!
Here are some photos from our busy week at the show

Our recently completed renovation of an East Vancouver turn-of-the-century home, designed by Janis, is a perfect example:

JDL Homes is proud to introduce our featured designer, Jevons Tang.
Jevons comes from a construction family; both her father and uncle worked in the construction industry in Hong Kong.
Jevons practiced in Hong Kong for 10 years before arriving in Canada. In Hong Kong, she worked for an interior architecture firm specializing in large commercial projects such as hotel lobbies and condominum clubhouses.
Jevons continued her design education here in Canada and is now an Associate Kitchen & Bath Designer (AKBD). Her exceptional knowledge of plumbing and construction processes gives her a unique perspective as a designer as she truely understands the functional elements of the design / build process.
Doug and Jeff are thrilled to have Jevons Tang working in partnership with the JDL Homes team. Her humour, keen eye for design, excellent attention to detail and committment to customer service make her a pleasure to work with and we're glad to count her as part of the JDL family.
Watch for upcoming blog posts from Jevons Tang for great design ideas, tips on how to complete new home construction here in Canada while living over-seas, and tips and tricks for your next kitchen or bathroom renovation.
