Company & History

Established in 1981 by Orlan Martin, Country Lane Builders has been designing and building outstanding custom homes and doing renovation work of virtually every size and shape for nearly three decades. We have our roots located firmly in Hawkesville, Ontario.

Times have changed but not Country Lane Builders’ commitment to quality. We believe that’s because we are a multigenerational family-business that works with old-time craftsmanship in the 21st century. Our construction management—including building techniques, labour and material cost-control, and attention to detail—are unparalleled.

The Martin brothers—Murray, Tim, Clare, Gerald—have learned from Orlan Martin what craftsmanship means. As we build homes of any size, we draw on our team members for their specific expertise: home design, framing, finish carpentry, roofing, sales, and project management.

For our family, workmanship is our hallmark:

  • We use the finest quality building materials and techniques;
  • We are meticulous in our attention to detail;
  • We design and build a wide range of homes from three-bedroom bungalows to larger country estate residences;
  • We do expert renovations, restorations, and remodelling;
  • We construct commercial buildings and other special building projects;

But most of all, we always listen to our clients and meet their needs.

Country Lane Builders offers you the best of both worlds. We are a big enough business to manage effectively and efficiently the largest and most complex of building projects, but we are a small-town, family business that works on smaller projects also. And we do it with the passion and attention to detail that has established our reputation as a premier builder in the industry.
