In the fall of 2013, we chose Sveinson Construction to demolish our 67-year-old log cabin and replace it with a four season home. The element of trust is crucial in any major project but especially so when we were an hour’s drive away and could not visit the site on a regular basis to monitor progress. From our first meeting with Cliff Sveinson and Dave LaRocque, we felt they both understood what we wanted to achieve. We had complete confidence in Dave’s ability to co-ordinate all the trades and ensure the successful completion of our cottage.
All of the trades-people involved were highly skilled and several of them went out of their way to incorporate special design elements which allowed us to maintain some of the key features of the old family cottage we had to demolish. The carpenters re-used the old pine paneling as wainscoting in the living/dining room. The painter went to considerable trouble to get the stain for the new pine doors and trim to exactly match the old pine boards. The stone mason, using a photo and scale drawings, was able to replicate our much-loved stone fireplace, using the original stones. Margaret LaRocque in the office provided helpful suggestions for kitchen design, paint colours and flooring and we are delighted with the results.
We are grateful for our association with Sveinson Construction. Our new cottage is all we hoped it would be – a dream come true.

Our beautiful, quaint two storey, red and white home was built by Sveinson Construction. It is situated in a pretty development called Odin Green in Gimli, MB. It was personally overseen by Dave LaRocque. His complete dedication to detail was extremely comforting.
Five years ago, I brought Dave a house blueprint, and a vision of the house I wanted to be built. I had searched for years for the exact footprint of what this home would look like. We took the exact blueprint and my vision to 3 contractors, but finally settled on Sveinson Construction. I am sure my dreams of how this house detail would look, became at times, a task of patience for Dave. I was a pretty determined, feisty lady, who knew exactly how my home would look inside and out. In saying this, he worked at all times closely with me, to make sure my vision was accomplished. He was careful to suggest spots that needed tweaking to make my dream house more functional.
I felt that Dave hired trades and carpenters that were very qualified, and had the same high standards as all of Sveinson Construction seems to have. The total build of the construction, for me, was mostly one of excitement from start to finish. Along the way, there were minor glitches, but again, Dave worked closely and calmly with me to extract my vision and dreams, even at times, by email and pictures, as my hubby and I are snowbirds.
From top to bottom, this home has been built with top quality materials, by top notch trades/carpenters over seen every step of the way by Sveinson Construction. We continue to have no construction issues or defects. To date, any issue has been quickly resolved (tiny shingle issue) as quickly as trades can get here.
I am extremely proud to say that our home was built by Sveinson Construction. Three years later, we continue to love our comfortable two storeyred and white home in Odin Green.
