About Your Construction Options
Tamlin provides support for Owner-Builders, referrals within our Builder Network, help finding quality trades, and General Contractor Services (locally within the Vancouver BC area).
At Tamlin, with our 40-year proven home package system and careful attention to details, we will provide a customized level of construction support to meet your building needs.
Some clients choose to be their own “general contractor” for construction having Tamlin help them take their project to the “lock-up” stage of construction while others prefer a “full build” with Tamlin as the general contractor. On this page we explain the different options.
Are you an owner who would like to build your own home or be highly involved in the project management? We can help you understand how much of the building process you might manage by yourself.
