About Me

Hello. I’m Gary

My father is a master carpenter and had his own woodworking & cabinet business.   He is retired now but he was the best carpenter I have ever known.

I started in construction as a laborer working for my dad’s customers when I was a teenager, back when contractors did things the hard way.

I left construction in 1977, after graduating, and got into heavy equipment and became a diesel mechanic.

I returned to construction in 1990 and became a renovation contractor.  I then started Evans Construction in 1993 when I started designing and building new homes in Vernon and throughout the North Okanagan.

I became a registered builder with The B.C. & Yukon New Home Warranty Program.

I moved to Cranbrook  (my brother lives there)  in 1996 building new homes.  In 1998 I moved to Calgary to work on framing houses because construction was so slow in British Columbia.   This is when I became a very good framing contractor.

I moved back to Vernon in 2004 and have been a General Contractor since.

I was a contributing contractor on the Mike Holmes Forums ( Holmes on Homes) from 2010 till 2012 when the forums were shut down.

I now do the same thing on the “DIY Chatroom”  forums where I give advice and help solve problems for homeowners from across Canada and the United States and even around the world.

I am very knowledgeable, honest and friendly, and my priority is to do the best job I can for my customer.
