About Us

At Emerald Park Homes, we believe there is a better way to build a home. A way that makes your home not only look good on the outside, but ensures that it’s built to last you a lifetime. We have many years of on-site work behind us to build homes the right way, with high quality materials and building practices and only the best sub-trades and suppliers. 

Our staff is well trained in the layout, process and design of each and every custom built home.  We work with our customers in a collaborative way throughout the entire build to ensure that the decisions they make will suit their family and budget.  We invite them to meet with us as construction progresses to make sure that any changes they wanted can be caught before the build goes too far. 

Regina’s First Holmes Approved Home Builder

Our homes are built above and beyond the standard building code. That’s why we’re Regina’s first Mike Holmes Approved home builder. You know exactly what you’re getting behind the walls of your new home from the inspection reports and photos and the final certification from the Holmes Approved Home Inspector.  

We make the process of building your home personal, we work with you every step of the way to make sure you get the home you want. We care about the quality of your home, that’s why you should care who you hire to build it. In 2014, we partnered with Mike Holmes’ Holmes Approved Program which includes only the best builders nationwide. Our homes are inspected at various stages of construction to make sure they are built to Mike’s stringent standards. We are raising industry standards by building healthier and more durable homes.  

With the endorsement of Mike Holmes, our customers receive the peace of mind that only working with a Holmes Approved Builder can offer you.  


“I partnered with Emerald Park Homes because we share the same values when it comes to building right, proper construction, and what that means for you and your family. They know what it means to build homes that last for generations—the way we used to build. And they’re a family business. That tells me they care. Because at the end of the day, it’s their name on these homes, too. When it’s your name on the line you stand behind it” – Mike Holmes 

Our Founding

Garry Sawchyn started out in the construction industry with Triple B Concrete where he learned all about concrete work as a summer job while he attended the University of Regina. In 1980, he bought a truck and a power trowel to start his own company: Apex Construction Ltd.  He hired some workers and installed driveways, garage slabs, basement floors and basements walls. Ten years later, he had grown his business to include two framing crews and a basement crew.

In 1991, Garry decided to build a new home for his family. He chose Emerald Park because of the sandy soil that drained easily and didn’t require extra costs for structural slabs and foundations.

The Emerald Park Golf & Country Club was a real draw for folks who loved golf and were anxious to build along the golf course. The property tax was almost 40% less because there were less services.

In 1992, a mutual friend introduced Garry to a local realtor, Gordon Degelman and together, they started Emerald Park Homes Ltd. Their focus was on building good solid homes making structure, energy efficiency and durability the priority.

Emerald Park Homes commitment to find the best sub-trades and treat them like family has paid off in the long term. They all share the same commitment to quality and excellence and most of them are local family businesses.

Now, many years later, they continue to improve construction practices and systems in an effort to build high performance, durable, quality homes that deliver superior value and comfort for years to come.
