Steve & Elaine Bossenbroek    ★★★★★

We hired Homes by Gary Byker to do a tear down and build a new home for us. The lot had some challenges but Gary was able to work thru those challenges very effectively and efficiently. We appreciated Gary and Janel’s ability to make modifications as requested. Janel’s design team was very creative and made a number of suggestions during the build process that we were very happy to do and thankful that the suggestions had been made. Gary uses excellent subcontractors who were always very helpful and accommodating as well as eager to help us understand when we had questions. Gary was also very good at scheduling subcontractors so that work was continuous. We are extremely happy with our new home!!!!

Jerry and Kris Brouwer    ★★★★★

We now live in our second home built by the Gary Byker Team (GBT).  We lived in our first Gary Byker Home for nearly 15 years and the second for the past 5 years.

The workmanship, design creativity and construction process are all second to none.  We could not be more happy with our home and recommend to everyone to use the GBT.   There are so many factors that go into your new home.   Don't make the mistake of chasing a low price and end up with headaches and a home filled with regrets.   

We have many friends that have also used the GBT and feel the same gratitude and satisfaction for the GBT and their home!

Joel & Stefani Dunn ★★★★★

Our home is amazing!!! The Craftsmanship is top notch. Janel has a great eye for design that made the process really easy.

In a market filled with copycat builders and designers, these are the Cats that everyone else seems to be copying. :)

Mike & Jane Ritsema  ★★★★★

We built for the first time and used Homes by Gary Byker. 

The guidance, expertise, and custom talent were over the top in our experience.    

Gary “tag -teams" with Jane! Joppie and the two of them together are GOLDEN.  They both had patience with our inexperienced ideas and questions!   Janel walked us through every step of the way with her uniqueness and creativity,  pulling everything together and finishing with the decor. 

The day we moved in she added the final touches and hung the pictures! The entire process was perfectly timed out for a move in date. I cannot praise them enough!

Gary and Janel make a great combination.   It's a perfect combination between "design" and "yeh. we can do that”. 

It also seems like Gary's contractors have all been with him forever, so they all know what it takes to meet Gary's high standards.  Everyone works well together and the jobsites are always well managed and kept very clean. 

Bob Schipper (Owner of Schipper Wallpaper)


Homes by Gary Byker is an excellent company to work with.

They are very organized, and do many creative things in their homes.

I have personally heard many positive comments from people who have experienced their work.  Their designs are unique and it has been a pleasure to be associated with them.
