Matt is known for his ability to develop excellent working relationships with clients that reflect his personal values of integrity, dependability and attention to detail. He is a tireless advocate for the homeowner to ensure that all work is done with quality and within budgetary parameters.

Your custom home begins with your vision. Whether your vision is clear or you come with a few basic concepts we can help you fill in the blanks and create the home that you imagine. We listen to your ideas and discuss your needs and lifestyle, and plan according to your style and budget. We assess potential building sites to ensure the site chosen is suitable to achieve your vision. Architects take your ideas and create the initial design that is then reviewed and perfected until it becomes the plan that reflects your dream home.
Once a site is chosen and the plans complete, we provide a personal project plan that includes a budget and a timeline for completion. We are committed to precise planning to eliminate budget overruns or delays in the timeline. Expenses are reported to you monthly and there are no hidden charges. Costs are tracked and book keeping is transparent.
The build process begins when we coordinate with surveyors, engineers, and city officials. For in town clients, once we break ground on your home, we meet regularly to ensure you are well-informed of both building development and budget progress. For our out of town clients we provide weekly reports and on site pictures to enable you to see your project assembled before your eyes. Clients from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba can avoid frequent trips to town as we manage every aspect of the build and provide detailed communication, pictures and video to ensure you are a part of seeing your vision become a reality. We pride ourselves in taking the worry and stress out of building a home.
As we finish 2012 and have now been in our home for almost a year, we are so thankful for the opportunity we had in building our house with you. You actively listened to us through the entire process starting with the initial concept and continuing to our present ideas for addition and expansion. Your understanding, planning, guidance and patience are why our home reflects our vision. Your attitude and ‘can do’ sprit combined with your experience and practical thinking were the key to making our often unconventional dreams a reality, while keeping them on time and under budget. We look forward to the future projects we are able to collaborate on and to many years enjoying our dream home.
In 2007 we asked Matt to oversee the building of our house, it is a 7000sq foot custom home with many innovative features such as: indoor 25ft water wall, home theatre, built-in 1000 gallon salt water aquarium and music studio. Throughout the whole job Matt was an absolute pleasure to work with, always looking out for our best interest, with a great attitude and willing to make sure the job was done to our satisfaction and beyond, even at his own expense at times. Matt has a keen eye for quality and a real determination to keep the job on budget. Matt strikes the perfect balance of trustworthiness, skill and efficiency making the building an absolutely enjoyable and satisfying experience.
This is the first house that we ever built….. Not only was Matt Hauge on time and on budget, but he was also able to help us keep our costs down while retaining the features of our original design concept. Things could not have gone more smoothly, and this was due, in large part, to Matt’s patience, professionalism, and infectiously happy disposition. Even after we had completed our contract with Matt, he went out of his way to assist us with various details. In an industry plagued with bad reputations, Matt Hauge is indeed a rare and precious gem.
Matt is a superb general contractor. He has a positive working relationship with all the trades and ensured we got the “A” team on all jobs. He holds himself and those that work for him to consistently high standards. After being in the house he built for 10 years now I can confirm that the workmanship is of a very high quality and is standing the test of time with no issues.
There are a few things that set Matt apart. He is incredibly fast; he can accomplish in one day what many contractors can complete in two or three. He is a tireless advocate for the homeowner and ensures the best possible value in all aspects of the home building process. And Matt is probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He’s got a great sense of humor and puts people ahead of process. This was clearly evident in all interactions we’ve had with him.
I would have no reservations at all in working again with Matt and would recommend him most highly for anyone wishing to build a new home or renovate an existing one. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information.
We would absolutely recommend Matt as a building contractor . We were living in rural Manitoba, while building in BC and Matt took everything in hand, especially when our youngest son was diagnosed with cancer and we found that we were not able to make decisions. He helped us through a difficult time and kept kept everything running smoothly, kept to the time line and made sure the house was as we wanted it. He sent us daily updates with pictures, which were much appreciated, being so far away.
Our neighbours have even commented on how well he ran the site, and how tidy he kept it and that crews he employed were so quiet and efficient. Even after the stress of relocating and building a house our families have become good friends, which we believe says it all.
I have worked with Matt on our building projects over the past 3 years. He has always been very reliable, honest, easy to work with and makes himself available every step of the way. When building a home cost is a concern for us as it is for most people and he keeps that top of mind while also making sure that we still receive quality materials and reliable trades people. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Matt Hauge has worked on our home on three different renovation projects over the last 10 years. He has always done a fantastic, top quality job. He has a great eye for making any space not just practical, but beautiful. He always uses great quality materials, and demands that anyone working on the job, do thorough, proper work.
We always found Matt to be very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. He always took our wishes and worked alongside us to come up with a plan that gave a result that would often exceed our expectations. We could rest easy knowing Matt would make sure things would get done, and we could trust his judgement for any area we didn’t have knowledge in. We were always impressed with the finished product.
We would not hesitate to recommend Matt as our top choice of contractor for any job.
