A Stress-Free Building Experience

For Busy Professionals & Their Families

We develop, build and sell our own homes, build and manage rental properties

and build custom homes for clients

We’re not just building strong houses that last a lifetime

we’re saving you from headaches 5, 10, and 20 years into the future.

Building and buying houses is complicated. On top of that, it’s often the largest purchase you’ll ever make, adding to the stress. Jobs can go over budget, and builder mistakes can cost you more. 

We work hard to take the stress away from your new home build. How? Thoughtful budgeting, avoiding home deficiencies, and proper planning.

John Vander Hoek started working in the construction industry as a laborer in 1987. Since then he has gained over 30 years of experience as a successful framer, framing contractor, home builder, and land developer in the Fraser Valley.

Undersell & Overdeliver

We don’t have to rely on gimmicks or high-pressure sales to sell houses. Instead we rely on good workmanship that speaks for itself – and it shows

We Focus On Every Room In Your Home

Many builders get specialists for high-value rooms: kitchens, bathrooms, and master bedrooms.

\It’s great for the sale value of the house, but often details are missed everywhere else.

We pay attention to detail on every room of your house, even the ones that aren’t featured in MLS.

“We have known John Vanderhoek and his wife Mary for more than 15 years now. We first worked with John when we had him build our third ever home building project in 2004. We could tell right away that he was a man of integrity and had great attention to detail.

When we decided to embark upon another new build, we knew from our past experiences that we wanted John and his team to build our new custom home. Although he was extremely busy, he happily commenced the project. We worked extensively with him throughout the process and he was always available to provide insight, guidance and his opinion. His experience definitely helped us to navigate through the process of making all the necessary decisions in this complex building environment. His high standards and professionalism were evident throughout the six-month process.

Among the many things that set Karvin Developments apart from other builders is the fact that they have excellent subtrades and support staff who understand the high standards John has set for his building projects. They were able to help facilitate communications whenever it became necessary. We would definitely encourage anyone considering a home project to use John Vanderhoek and Karvin Developments, as we feel he built our home as if it were his own.”

Flash forward to 2018 and we contacted John again and secured Karvin Developments to take on the project of crafting our latest dream home.
