Our Philosophy is simple:

The Golden Rule

When Barry started this business, he made himself a promise: 
To treat every client as he would want to be treated with the highest level of honesty & integrity." 
The Golden Rule has been around for millennia and Barry and the Gant Design + Build’s family team adheres to it. This philosophy is not just something we say but is something that we live out each day.


Our Leader

Barry Gant started this family-owned business 15 years ago with the support of his wonderful wife Candice. He has 3 beautiful children one girl and two boys whom his world revolves around. He loves his family and gets up in the morning to do his dream job – creating and building outdoor living retreats for your family. 

When he started the company, he set out with the goal to assemble a family team. He hired friends and people he knew he could trust with his dream and has accomplished that goal. Most of his team has been with him the duration. He even hired the Best Man from his wedding. 

He understands that family means different things to everyone. He recognizes that family are those that your care about and love and treat with dignity and respect. 

And not only is a licensed general contractor but he is also a professional fire jumper!

  • We are company whose values are as important to us a making money.

Our Company is Not:

  • We are not a fly-by-night, two men in a truck company. We have been around for 15 years and will be here when you need us.

  • We are not sales sharks out for blood money. We do not hire hi-pressure salesmen out to make a quick buck.

  • We are not the cheapest, but we are affordable. If you want cheap, shoddy workmanship then we are not for you. The old saying “You get what you pay for.” is very true when it comes to construction.

  • We are not a handy-man company.  A good handyman is important to have but we complete projects worth the investment required of a general contractor.

  • We are not a sub-contractor. We do partner and are happy to work with other companies that have experience or expertise in aspects of an outdoor project that we do not specialize in such as pool builders to provide an example.

We are Local & Licensed

    We are 2 months into our new outdoor living space. We love the completed project. Thank you Gant Design and Build for the amazing deck addition to our home!

    Barry and his team built our paver deck and we are extremely satisfied. We were originally going to add a porch and due to zoning issues we were not able to proceed. Barry and the team patiently worked with us in finding a solution.
