When we started designing and building homes in Canmore more than 20 years ago, we had no way of knowing the tremendous response we would receive or the number of loyal customers who would return to us to build second and even third homes.

What we did know is that we were truly passionate about homebuilding and found great satisfaction in providing a level of service unmatched in the industry. Following our passion has brought us to where we are today: building homes in one of the most naturally breathtaking communities in the world for people who value time-honoured craftsmanship and technological savvy in equal measures.

With years of home building experience, we are among Canmore's true pioneers both in luxury home design and BuiltGreen certification. We embraced the importance of building energy efficient homes long before it became fashionable to do so.

We were the first builder in Canada to attain a platinum BuiltGreen level – the highest rating possible – for a single-family home.
