Our Story

We’ve Been Building and Renovating Spacings Since 2000

Our Story

Chris Relling has always been interested in building things, regardless of the process used to build. And he enjoys the process of creating the most.

Chris, Owner of CJR Custom Made Concepts, began his career as a carpenter back in high school when he took wood shop and worked the summers as a labourer on residential construction projects learning the ropes. His desire to create and design started early and has always been a strong passion of his. If he wanted something he would often make it for himself instead of buying it. This gave him, early on, his ability to trouble shoot and improvise in any situation which he carries into his current work today. After years of learning the fundamentals of carpentry and furniture making through residential construction projects and working for an antique furniture refinishing company, Chris started CJR Custom Made Concepts in 2000. It was at the same time when he married his beautiful wife Lisa and began creating a family.

Initially early in his career, woodworking in any form was his passion, from furniture building to concrete formwork.  After 24 years of being a carpenter, he realized that he wanted to do more. After watching other trades working for years on end he realized that metal fabrication was what he wanted add to his skill set. And now, after six years, metal work makes up approximately 40% of his business.

He’s got a great work ethic and takes immense pride in what he does which ultimately means he always makes his clients happy!” ~ Jill Wiersma
"My husband and I have used Chris for small and large renovations in our homes for over 10 years and have always loved working with him. He has a unique flair for design and craftsmanship, whether it's replicating something we've seen in a magazine or helping us create something from scratch, his work is incredibly beautiful and "designer" looking. The work is impeccably executed and always with a smile. His love of woodworking and eye for style put Chris, in my opinion, one of the most talented artists in Canada." ~ Liesa Norman
”Our Contractor, Chris, was a pleasure to work with; he explained the process to us carefully and was able to employ the sub-trades needed to make our reno a huge success! His personality was friendly and he listened well. He took our ideas and made them an amazing reality! Chris was able to identify issues and resolve them within a timely manner, even if it meant coming over with short notice! For example, he came by on a Sunday night to fix something that couldn’t wait until Monday. He has fantastic contacts in every trade needed–each of whom were timely and friendly!" ~ Camille Shariff
