Building better homes, since 1980.

Formerly operating as John Harsevoort & Sons Construction and Ideas Architectural Design, Harse Homes has been building better homes since 1980.

As a family-owned and operated company, we know the importance of the family home. We work on every home as if it was our own, and we personalize every home so that it meets the owner's individual needs - and exceeds their expectations. Our extensive experience in home design and building methodology have transformed the homes - and lives - of many distinguished clients throughout Southern Ontario.

Harse Homes is committed to enhancing our client’s lifestyle through quality homes built to their needs. We ensure satisfaction throughout the building process through personal service, unique ideas, attention to detail, professionalism and integrity.

Our client's feedback on working with our team is that we are honest, listen and provide great ideas. Clients invariably enjoy the company of our professional staff while we are in their home, and we are committed to staying within your budget and meeting deadlines for the completion of your home.

Looking to build your dream home or enhance your current home? We invite you to contact us today for a no-obligation, in-home consultation!  We serve the Burlington, Hamilton, Ancaster, Carlisle, Dundas, and Waterdown areas.


Our Team

John Harsevoort

Having already chosen in high school to pursue a career in construction, John continued his education at the college level, enrolling in the Construction Technician Program. Following college, John furthered his education to the level of Architectural Technologist. Through continued education via trade shows, seminars, and reading materials, John continues to stay current on building techniques, materials, energy efficiency, as well as current trends and styles in home building and renovation.

A devoted family man, John enjoys family time, volunteering, reading, and is always thinking outside the box as to how and why things go together.

John's strong Christian faith continues to allow him to see beauty in much of God's creation, and to take that excitement and passion into the design of the houses they build and renovate. His faith is also evident in the honesty and integrity in which he operates the business.

Having experienced that life sometimes can be hard, and having experienced the privilege of having four sons grow up, John knows that it's helpful to have not only great people close by, but an open and inviting house to make it even more enjoyable.
