Custom Homes

Building a dream starts with communication. You know what your new custom home looks like in your mind's eye and we want to see exactly what you do so that we can make your dream come true. Here's how we do it:

Step 1: The Wishlist

No one knows what you and your family need and want better than you. You may have everything laid out in a “Dream Home” binder, or you may need us to help you determine which features would be best. Either way, we are here to help you figure out what you need and want in your new home, while always staying within budget.

Do you need a breakfast bar at your kitchen island? Do you need extra storage in your two-car garage? What about planning outlets and switches for your Christmas lights? Will you be entertaining or hosting family dinners? How will your children grow into their rooms as they get older? It's a lot to think about, but once this part is over we will all be on the same page, ready to take the next step in building your custom home.

Step 2: Location, Location, Location

We know what you want in your custom home, but now we need to know where it's going! There are a wealth of options when it comes to locations in Kelowna or the Okanagan. There are private lots, trendy new communities, acreages, and so much more. 

Location is important. The Destination Homes team can make alterations to your new home plans, but we can't change where it's located and we want you to be over-the-moon ecstatic with your new home. We can help you find the perfect place to build your new home and ensure that the lot meets the needs on your wishlist, and that your wishlist meets the needs of your lot.

Step 3: Designing Your Dreams

Design isn't just about looking pretty. It's about being functional too. We will use layouts to help you determine everything from the tile in the bathroom to how many lights and electrical outlets you need and where they should go.

We can help you pick paint colours, cabinets, flooring, floorplans, and so much more. There are a lot of decisions to be made, but Destination Homes will work with you to ensure that the process of designing your new custom home is as enjoyable as possible. Plus, we will help you keep to your budget, ensuring that the design process is painless for your wallet too.

Step 4: Building Your Custom Dream Home

Now that the design phase is done, it's time to begin construction on your new home. The Destination Homes team has been building luxury homes in the Okanagan since 1986 and our knowledge and experience is a key asset when it comes to building your dream house on time and on budget. In fact, we take your budget and timeline very seriously and our professional team will help take your custom home from dreams to reality, while sticking to our word.

Unlike some builders, we encourage our homeowners to be as involved in the building process as they want. We know that you will have questions, and we will always be happy to answer them. If anything should require your attention, we will let you know right away, keeping those lines of communication open for a better home building experience.

Step 5: Welcome Home!

Once your home is complete, your new life can begin. This new custom-built house will be the site of cherished memories for years to come, and we couldn't be happier for you. When we hand over the keys to your home, we will do a final walkthrough with you so that we can review every feature in detail and we can make sure that all of your questions are answered.

Moving into your new home should be a worry-free experience. We will keep all appliance manuals, warranties, and records in a convenient package so that you have everything you need in one place. Of course, you're part of the Destination Homes family now, so if you have any questions in the future, we will always be here to help.

Sound good? Great!
