Copper Island Fine Homes Inc. is an award-winning home builder based in the Shuswap area of BC. We work within the Blind Bay communities of Shuswap Lake Estates, Cedar Heights, MacArthur Heights, Sorrento, and also surrounding areas of the Shuswap Lake, including Salmon Arm and the North Shore communities of Scotch Creek, Anglemont and Magna Bay.
In addition to being the area's leading custom home builder, our team offers a range of services that includes major renovations, build to lockup, project management, interior and exterior design, and much more.
The owners of Copper Island Fine Homes Inc. are Marcus and Sylvia Picton (right). Marcus and Sylvia relocated from Calgary to the Shuswap in 2020, when Marcus was appointed General Manager of Copper Island Fine Homes. Early in 2021, Marcus and Sylvia began working with the company's founders, Greg and Tracy Vistisen, on a transition plan and purchase. On July 1, 2021, the purchase was completed. You can read more about the transition and purchase here.
Copper Island Fine Homes was established in 2003 to respond to a clear need in the Blind Bay area — a need for a local residential contracting company that would offer an emphasis on value without compromising quality and innovation. Copper Island has addressed this need, with dozens of our homes gracing Blind Bay and surrounding communities. Since our first home, we have garnered awards, achieved high ratings in customer satisfaction, and demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement — in after-sales service, in adoption of new building techniques, and in striving for building excellence.
We've been able to achieve this by surrounding ourselves in excellence. Our carpentry staff alone has more than 100 years of combined journeyman experience. In addition to our highly qualified and professional staff, we have made it a policy to involve only the area's most highly qualified and accredited subtrades in our clients' projects.
Copper Island Fine Homes Inc. is not a bulk builder. We work with a limited number of projects at one time, with a focus on quality and customer satisfaction. Our approach is to help clients choose a stock plan or work with a professional designer to arrive at a design that takes advantage of the subject property's unique features while blending harmoniously with the Shuswap's natural beauty and surrounding homes. Using proven and innovative techniques, quality construction materials and finishes, and the area's most talented trades and craftsmen, Copper Island Fine Homes takes each project to full completion — on time, on budget, and to the highest possible standards.
