  • COVERSTORY

    f rom their earliest of memories growing up on the family farm, brothers Jeff and Doug Langford were taught the ethics of hard work.

    Do it right the fi rst time, or dont do it at all. Whether we were building a fence or a barn, that was our fathers mantra for life, and its a principle that guides our business and approach to renovations and new construction today, said Jeff Langford of JDL Homes.

    Their new offi ce is now open at The Design Centre at 1910 Ontario St., in Vancouver. The creative space is shared with Janis Gosbee Design Inc., and door and window specialists, Modern Classic Building Solutions. While the companies work independently, this showroom is an inspiring venue new clients to dream big and talk realistically about their construction plans and building budgets, while looking at various product samples.

    LIFE ON FAMILY FARM TAUGHT ETHIC OF HARD WORK With Dougs extensive sales and business background, and Jeffs broad range of construction experience, it was a natural progression for them to go into business together, just like their father and his brothers did. Their partnership began about 10 years ago with the decision to renovate and fl ip Jeffs townhome in Yaletown.

    by JANINE MACKIE

    It was quite the transformation, said Doug. Our quality of work was noticed and it wasnt long before we were renovating the homes on either side as well. We ran with it, and have never looked back.

    Licensed new-home builder, general contractor and certifi ed Build Green builder, today JDL Homes scope of work includes everything from small bathroom renovations and extensive kitchen makeovers, to million-dollar custom home builds, and everything in between. They pride themselves in their quality of work and being able to provide clients with a fi nished product thats far from the status quo.

    " We take time and care in the actual process to educate our clients, and make sure whats behind the walls is done right," said Jeff.

    MONEY WELL SPENT ON EFFICIENT MECHANICAL SYSTEMS AND QUALITY MATERIALS Take a typical bathroom renovation for example, JDL Homes encourages its clients to consider the true value of using quality materials.

    If you are spending several thousand dollars on a new bathroom, dont let 200 to 300 extra dollars spent in the correct materials and an extra day of labour on proper

    With their knowledge, expertise and impressive portfolio of heritage restorations, laneway and custom homes, JDL Homes was short listed by Janis Gosbee Design Inc. to recommend to her clients who wanted to breathe new life into their Kitsilano old-timer, as well as realize the full potential of an RT-8 zoned lot by building an adjacent infi ll home for their adult children.

    RENOVATING HERITAGE HOMES IS AN ART FORM CAPABLY PERFORMED BY JDL HOMESWe love challenges and the adventure of tricky, sophisticated renovations, so this project was right down our alley, said the brothers.

    Different from a laneway home, which is basically an extension of the main home, infi ll is a legal se
