With three decades of award-winning custom home builders in British Columbia. It is a story that our Okanagan construction team enjoys sharing on a personal level. With years of experience in participating in some of the Okanagan Valley’s most prestigious real estate, our valued employees contribute significantly to our enviable reputation in this competitive industry. With our talented team and proven testimonials from our clients, we encourage your consideration to become your preferred builder.

We recommend visiting our sales team when you’re feeling ready to build. Ideally, you will have a lot, house plan and a budget number in mind. However, this is not always the case. We can help you figure out these 3 pieces to the puzzle with a visit and preliminary conversation. Come on in!

Most developments will take a refundable deposit on the lot you have chosen, with a window of time set in place to find a builder and plan that works for you. It is comforting to know that your deposit will be given back if you decide not to build. Also, the lot is yours and there is no need to worry about someone else’s interest while you are going through the planning phase.

This question comes up often and is probably the most difficult to answer without knowing your plan and defining the spec. This can be a very miss-leading number in many cases and one that we need information to determine. Price per square foot is a variable which is determined by many factors, such as:

  1. Total square feet finished (Basement finishing lowers sq. ft. price)
  2. Size of footprint
  3. Level of finishing (will drive price up or down)
  4. Type of home (walk-up, 2-storey, rancher, etc.)

Contact us to get more information on your upcoming project.

Depending on the size of the home, the average time is 7 months from the day you begin digging to the key hand over. Obviously, this time frame can be less than 7 or more but it’s a good starting point.

Keep in mind this does not include the time necessary to plan, budget, and receive the home building permit.

Without a doubt, the finishing that goes into a home is what drives the end price up or down and the square foot price. The big 3, as we call them, are major pieces of the home that have the most impact the on price. They include:

  1. Flooring
  2. Cabinets
  3. Countertops

We will build anywhere in Kelowna and surrounding areas, especially in one of the areas where we are a preferred builder.
