Gary was born to build. He comes from a family with roots deeply entrenched in the Gainesville building industry. His mild manner, knowledge and confidence puts you at ease the moment you meet him. His sincere and straight forward conversation creates a strong connection right from the start. He knows his stuff and it shows! Originally a Master Electrician, Gary opened his own electrical contracting company back in the eighties. Those who worked with Gary learned quickly that he demanded high quality workmanship from himself and anyone who worked for him. His attention to detail created a high demand for his services. In the nineties, Gary expanded and created Pleiman Development. As a General Contractor he began building homes and developing raw land into thriving residential communities. Over the next twenty years Gary designed and built a range of homes for satisfied clients. From large custom homes in some of Gainesville's finest neighbourhoods to homes designed with young buyers and /or the empty nester in mind. With each home he exemplified his dream, that a home should be as functional as it is beautiful.
From 2006 to 2012 Gary moved with his family to Canada. While in Canada, Gary continued to grow in his knowledge of the latest trends in home building: including green technology, alternate fuel sources, solar and geo thermal heating as well as creating a master library of the latest design trends and influences in home construction through out North America. During 2011/2012 Gary completed his classes at the British Columbia Institute of Technology to become an International Home Inspector and recognition with the Applied Science Technologists & Technicians of British Columbia.
However, Gary's roots are firmly entrenched in Florida and he has returned to Gainesville and the culture he loves. He is back to stay! His sub contractors and clients are thrilled. Gary's next project will be in Wellington, walking distance to the new Meadowbrook Elementary School. Gary has already built many homes in this subdivision and is extremely honored to have the opportunity of the completing the subdivision by building out the final five lots. Each lot has a custom home plan designed specifically to maximize the enjoyment of the family who will call it "home."
