WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT BRAD
"We just completed building our retirement home on Salt Spring Island. The project included two Linwood buildings. The first completed was the 1500 sq ft garage/studio, followed by our 3200 sq ft residence. With no prior experience in house building, it was quite a steep learning curve for us. Brad Grinder, our Linwood rep on the island, was a very cheerful and knowledgeable consultant right through to occupancy and helped make our decisions less daunting. Linwood's design team patiently and skillfully worked with us to arrive at a plan that suited our needs and aesthetics. At every stage in the build, our trades people remarked on the unusually high quality of the Linwood materials package compared to what they typically see on their other non-Linwood projects. Moreover, any supply or delivery issues were dealt with professionally and always to our satisfaction. We do not hesitate to recommend Linwood and Brad for projects of any size or complexity."
J Matsuyama, Homeowner
"Brad has been a consummate professional throughout a difficult project. We had little experience with a project of this size..a 600 sq ft addition to an existing cabin. Brad was invaluable in helping us identify the Structural Engineering and Geotech professionals we needed to satisfy the permit requirements. In addition he organized the challenging logistics associated with delivering materials to a steep site on a boat access only island. A job well done. I would not hesitate to recommend Brad."
A West-Sadler, Homeowner
"I also want to thank you for your great service throughout this project. You have been so helpful and friendly and professional, and we hugely appreciate it! I’ve gone out of my way to mention our good experience with you and Linwood when I speak about the building project."
"Brad Grindler was terrific! My wife and I began to work with Linwood Homes and Brad when we were considering the options to deal with a deteriorated family cabin in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. Brad helped us to select one of the Linwood models as a base and then to significantly customize the design to fit our site and needs. He was always helpful, responded quickly and accurately to our questions, and was creative in suggesting new approaches that we had not thought of. With all of this, we are on budget! Our recommendation of Brad is unconditional. The new home project has been a consistently positive experience and Brad is the primary reason we feel this way. "

“Brad was very helpful throughout the process. We would recommend Brad to anyone wanting a positive building experience”
"Brad was exceptionally helpful to my wife and I as we planned and built our retirement home. He provided helpful advice and guidance about obtaining owner-builder authorization. He answered all our questions before, during and after we started construction and even made a visit to the building site. The quality of building materials provided by Linwood was second to none."
M McNally, Homeowner
Rewarding & Satisfying
"After much research, looking at and talking with a number of companies in the building industry, the decision was made to use Linwood Homes. A substantial portion of this was due to Brad Grindler. Throughout the process Brad was great, showing competency and respect for our ideas, wants needs and wishes. He handled the job with efficiency and professionalism, demonstrating patience and flexibility. It proved to be a rewarding and satisfying experience working with Brad."
A Perrins, Homeowner
Top Notch Materials
"Brad and his team worked with us extensively to develop the plan which helped us make the most of a small space. We don't live in BC and so it was absolutely critical that the package be delivered on time so that we could complete the construction in a very tight time schedule. Brad and Linwood delivered! The construction materials, particularly the lineal lumber materials were top notch. I would highly recommend Brad and Linwood."
