Brad Grindler has been so impressive and professional from start to finish. He has designed our dream home and made the process stress free and enjoyable. I am so lucky we found Brad and highly recommend his services along with the premium quality of Linwood. A true "Dream Team"
Brad took our scribbled house design and helped create a beautiful home. He truly listened to what we wanted and made lots of helpful suggestions to enhance our home. If you have any hesitation picking Linwood homes don’t, the material quality has been amazing and the service provided by Brad is exceptional from start to finish.
Brad’s very personable approach, patience and support all the way through the home package process has been outstanding. I highly recommend Linwood Homes and Brad in particular for your package home needs.

This review will also act as a blog as we proceed from house selection, design and then construction taking into account that the house builder is a difference organization.
Also I have edited the original review upon reflection and discussion with Brad whom this review is targeted, rather than Linwood Homes out of Delta BC, whom I will also review later.
So far pretty good. Brad was able to accommodate our difficult lot and redraft the home accordingly. We went through a long process of obtaining permits, and again Brad accommodated that, however there was a bit of pressure to complete as the house price does increase if not delivered in time - be careful and vigilant as one should.
Pricing - I thought the pricing was excellent and incentives helped a lot. Great job!
5 stars. Brad himself is very accommodating. I will likely rank Linwood Homes itself as 4 stars, but please read that review for reasons why.
Building a house is something you probably will only do once in your life. Therefore there are a lot of aspects to consider and the learning curve is steep. From terminology to contracting its easy to overlook critical aspects that are difficult to undo and cause headaches. Local conditions matter such as creeks, sewage, water, setbacks and easements. If you are building on a Gulf Island ensure that these are understand way ahead of time.
* Important to ask about how payment works. I had a builders mortgage and it did complicate this issue. In the end Brad helped us to make arrangements so, kudos, but you will have to ensure good cash flow.
Lets see how the house build goes now...
Brad was very helpful when we were designing and building our energy efficient home. Working with him was a pleasure!
"Brad was of great assistance in designing our beautiful, energy-efficient office and meeting facility. He was fabulous to work with: skilled, friendly, flexible, responsive and responsible. The Linwood package provided was excellent, and Brad handled any necessary alterations cheerfully and quickly. My board and I would recommend him and Linwood highly to anyone!"
