Custom Built Homes

An Innovative Company with a Reputation Built on Providing Superior Quality Homes

Gilles Michaud Construction

Gilles Michaud, a long time resident of Chatham-Kent, established Michaud Construction in 1978. Gilles Michaud Construction Ltd. was incorporated in 1981. Over the years, the locally owned firm has become a respected builder of affordable, quality custom homes. The husband and wife team of Gilles and Diana Michaud have found their niche in the Chatham-Kent home construction market. By focusing on a limited number of homes each year, they are able to work closely with their clients, while carefully monitoring the work of their trades associates and suppliers to complete individual homes on time and on budget.

Addition or New Construction

When you buy a Gilles Michaud home, you do not wade through a subdivision of partially completed duplicates to meet a salesperson waving a contract while offering you a choice of paint and carpet colors then send you on your way until the closing date. Gilles and Diana are proud of their work. They want to personally meet with you in their furnished model home to discuss your family needs and lifestyle. You will find their attention to detail and years of home construction experience most helpful whether you are considering an addition to your present home or building a new home.

Your Home

Your home is your home. It is the center of your family life and the most significant investment you are likely to make. Your home should reflect your style and satisfy your family needs. You do not have to settle for a standard box that a sub-division builder found quick and easy to build. You are the client. Your input is very important to the final product.
If you have a set of plans, Gilles will be pleased to discuss them with you. If you have some style or size ideas, you can probably find your next home among the 4000 sets of plans stored in the Michaud design computer. After careful review and perhaps some personalization of the plans, Gilles will prepare a realistic detailed budget for your consideration.
Where to build your dream house is a significant factor. Do you want the amenities of town or the open space of the country? Will your house fit on a standard lot? Will your house be a pleasing addition to the neighborhood? Gilles Michaud Construction Ltd. have residential lots immediately available, have access to many others around Chatham-Kent or will build on your lot.

Gilles Michaud

Gilles, a licensed and certified Journeyman with an Interprovincial License in carpentry, is the on-site manager of each of the home projects. With his ever-present cell phone, he directs the orderly flow of materials, schedules his qualified construction crews and communicates with the various public inspectors. More than just a hands-on construction and building code expert, Gilles is a student of modern building technology, always willing to consider the implementation of new innovations. He is an avid supporter of energy conservation and recycling with his progressive approach to materials and equipment selection and job site maintenance.

Diana Michaud

Diana is the office manager, maintaining customer relations, responding to supplier inquiries, monitoring accounts and paying bills. After raising her family, Diana completed her studies in professional interior decorating, qualifying her to plan and decorate each of the model homes as well as assist clients with their interior décor planning.

Continuing Service

Pride in their product does not end with the presentation of the keys. Gilles and Diana know that the future of Gilles Michaud Construction Ltd. depends on the long-term reputation and retained value of every home they build. Satisfied homeowners are the company’s most important salespeople. Although Gilles expects excellence, he is always ready to respond to problems with permanent solutions rather than useless rhetoric.
