Unique & Custom Homes

Each of the more than 90 custom homes that Paramax has built in the Lower Mainland since 2000 is unique, for every Paramax home is custom built to the owner’s individual specifications. Whether modern or traditional, a Paramax custom home will bring to life your vision of luxury and style with exactly the right material, expert craftsmanship and painstaking attention to detail.

Award Winning Homes

Metro Vancouver’s homebuilding industry has repeatedly recognized the quality of a Paramax custom-built home with multiple Georgie and Ovation Awards. They have also chosen Paramax as Home Builder of the Year.

Led by a Master Builder

Paramax Principal Gary Tiwana is a third-generation builder and a master of the homebuilding craft with a highly personal, hands-on approach. He leads Paramax’s in-house team of professional interior designers, and experienced tradesmen. They work directly with you every step of the way to ensure that your custom-built home becomes your dream home. The Paramax team’s hard-working but easy-going style transforms the potentially stressful process of building a new home into a beautiful experience.

A Green, Innovative Builder

Paramax Homes is a member of BuiltGreen. We use resource-efficient, environmentally friendly construction practices and products to build energy efficient and environmentally responsible homes. You can have your custom built home meet a range of standards, including LEED, Net-Zero Ready and PassivHouse. Paramax also goes one step further and recycles building material through re-use or removal to the recycling facility.


“We are glad that we chose Paramax Homes to build our dream home. We met with dozens of builders. Gary built our home like he was building his own. We are amazed by his attention to details and his high standard on quality. We are highly satisfied with the level of service from Paramax Homes, which made the entire building process very easy for us.”

Mr. & Mrs. Pan

“Gary’s trustworthiness is outstanding, especially with budgets. What he says is what you get, and we have gotten amazing value for money. We didn’t know that you could get that kind of quality for the price. Gary is very talented with strong design sense. He keeps up with the latest developments, like attending trade shows in Italy, and is always searching for new materials. When we see something in Architectural Digest, Gary is using it already. Everyone is wowed by our Paramax home.”

Zahra Rajwani

“This is the third new house we purchased over the past seven years. Paramax is by far the most professional, reliable and ethical developer we have worked with. We have formed a level of trust with Paramax that we did not think possible with any residential home developer. What makes Paramax special is that they have a truly great team. Jane, Mike, Gary and the others have been a pleasure to work with both prior and subsequent to us moving into the house. Paramax is an example of a company that combines great people with a great work ethic, which predictably results in great outcomes.”

The Erl Family

“Building our home with Paramax was an excellent experience and I highly recommend them for anyone who wants the personal touch from their builder. Gary is very hands-on and really listens to what you say about your lifestyle and what you want in your home. We loved the fact that each home he builds is very unique and the special features that he came up with just for us turned out even better than what we had envisioned. We’re thrilled.”

Lori McWilliams

“Originally, we looked at a house Gary had built and when it was sold we were very upset. Two weeks later, the lot across the street came up for sale and we immediately bought it and hired Gary. We found him to be gracious, classy, trustworthy and really easy to deal with. We appreciated that he listened to us, and yet he was already ready to provide us with ideas we hadn’t thought of Gary is a first class guy who really understood our vision and made it a shared vision. He takes great pride in his product and never once cut corners. Our home became his dream, too. We were so impressed by the overall detail in our home – from the gorgeous stonework to the lighting to all the finishes. We are so happy with pout home that we would recommend Gary and his team to anyone.”

Cami and Ray Ferraro

“This was our first time building a custom house and there were so many unknowns. Our biggest fear was not finding a builder we could trust. We did test a few contractors, but we chose Paramax. Gary is very knowledgeable and really, really honest – that made the whole process as easy as it could be. When we were indecisive, he helped us resolve issues, presenting clear options in way that we always felt that we had control.”

Nav and Raj Uppal

“We though that the home we wanted might be out of our price range, but Gary gave us three options: expensive, middle and low. Everything came in on budget—and that’s with some really great suggestions he mad, like a wine room that’s a real showstopper and a very unique shower with natural light. I can’t believe our house is so beautiful. I feel like we won the lottery.”

Alexa and Nancy Mackay

“I really want to thank Gary for making sure our new home was beautiful and for finishing on budget. The first time I met Gary, I realized that he was the contractor for us. He’s not only trustworthy, but he is easy to work with and he really knows his job and his trades. I am so pleased with the exceptional home he built for my family. I highly recommend Gary and the professional team for the ethical way he works, and the for the craftsmanship and quality he put into our home.”
