Halifax Framing's First Project
Halifax Framing's First Project

Born in the 50's - Gerald Slade grew up in small town Newfoundland as the son of a carpenter. Gerald started his formal training as a carpenter in 1972 while working with various contractors. Gerald arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia in the spring of 1974 and completed his training at the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology Carpentry Program and received his Interprovincial Certificate. Gerald achieved the second highest marks ever recorded there to that date.

In 1975 Halifax Framing was incorporated, initially focusing on home framing then eventually moving to commercial framing contracts. By 1987 the company had progressed considerably from its early days of framing small projects to operating as a general contractor employing as many as 32 employees a year with an annual revenue of one million dollars.

With the success of Halifax Framing firmly entrenched, Gerald began to miss the personal interaction of working one on one ensuring each client received the custom home they had been dreaming of.

In 1987 Gerald incorporated Homeland Builders, with a focus on custom homes and renovations, working with clients from the design phase of projects to the handing over of the keys. Since then Homeland Builders has built custom homes from a 900 sq ft. retirement home to a dream home of over 7,000 square feet, completed countless additions and renovations and we are looking forward to working with you to complete your custom home!
