Homes by Gary Bykerr 

Builder & Designer 

The Client's Perspective

Gary Byker is an exceptional builder with top-notch design and technical skills matched with Janel, who is amazing with interior and exterior design, color and style. 
We put our trust into Gary and Janel, and they more than met our expectations.
To us, the best part of building with Byker Homes is the personal attention to every detail, no matter how small. They met with us numerous times designing the home on paper  before construction – making sure we were happy with the design and style.
At he job site, they continued to be very welcoming to any changes or modifications needed. They were able to resolve any concerns that we had at the job site with a smile and a sense of ease.
We are so proud of our home. Not only does it far exceed our expectations, but many others agreed, electing it for the best design and people’s choice award for the  spring Parade of Homes. You can’t beat working with Gary and Janel: you will be happy from start to finish.

“I am so excited about the progress at the house… 

I did the Happy Dance!”

“We stopped by the job site today and I was really knocked over by the beauty and wow factor of the chandeliers.  Janel, you have awesome taste!  Also the mirror for Dave’s vanity is fantastic and looks terrific with the faucet and back splash.  I love both sets of lights in the master.  The morning kitchen looks awesome, and the powder room too.   Even the fans look amazing.  Everything is coming together beautifully and we just wanted you to know how thrilled we are!  Great Job!"                           Dave & Robin   October 2013

Update:  Dave passed away in June 2016 after battling cancer.  We have very fond memories of Dave and his giving spirit.  He left an imprint on all of our hearts. 

"With time to sit and reflect we both said it is not just about the quality of the house but ever single aspect from the functionality, design and detail is why we call it "home" and fall in love over and over every time we walk in the door.  
"Our dreams came true because of you. "
 Kammi Skrzypek 
Update:   This homeowner was transfered to California recently and sold the home we built them within 5 days!  They were very happy!

We meant to write this letter long before now. In a way, it may be better that we have procrastinated. We have been in our new home for seven months now, plenty of time for us to evaluate whether we are pleased with the construction. We absolutely love our home and have since the day we moved in!
The quality of the craftsmanship continues to impress us. The cabinetry and trim work are detailed and impressive. Janel’s keen eye for color and design helped us make decisions that all came together in a cohesive look.
It was obvious that Gary Byker & Janel Joppie had strong relationships with the subcontractors hired.  This is evident throughout the house but especially in the details around the tile work, stone work, flooring, and finishing touches. We found that what was standard for this house would be considered an ‘upgrade’ for the other builders.
Looking back on it now, we can’t thank Gary and Janel enough for their advice and for the quality we see all around us now in our new home.
We highly recommend Homes by Gary Byker to anyone looking to build!”
