"We have taken possession of a very well-designed, well-built and elegant looking home inside and out. Greg and his team made a normally stressful experience enjoyable and dare I even say 'fun', from the design process through the build...The build was done on time and on budget with the exception of our changes, and to a standard that we would expect with a quality builder...Having the experience we have had over the last year, we are confident that, should we have any issues going forward, Copper Island will address them with professionalism and integrity."

We believe in building your home on budget. We deliver on our promise by basing every project on a detailed quote using our internet-based estimating application.

Our interior designer and decorator, as well as our entire team, is dedicated to supporting you throughout the construction process. Building and finishing a home requires difficult choices, and we're there to provide expert advice from start to finish.
Our clients live busy lives often at a distance from the Shuswap. We stay in constant contact using a web-based project management application to provide clients with access to construction photos, updates, meeting notes, plan alterations, construction schedules, time frames and real-time financial information.
In addition to welcoming building Inspections in this part of the Shuswap, we adhere to our own unique 80 page in-house Quality Control and Inspection Manual and provide photo documentation for each stage of construction. Our full time project managers and licensed journeyman carpenters are in the field to ensure your home is built to proper standards, on time and within budget.
To ensure our clients continue to feel satisfied with our service, we adhere to very specific customer service and warranty procedures and have a dedicated staff member to oversee customer service and warranty support.
During construction, we adhere to very specific industry documented residential construction performance guidelines, as well as our own unique series of sub trade performance expectations.
The mountainous terrain of the Shuswap can be challenging to build on. That's why we begin every project with a professional Site Survey and use this information to calculate realistic construction costs and site layout well in advance of construction.
To maintain our quality control and customer service standards, we limit the number of homes we build each year and the area within which we build to Blind Bay, Cedar Heights, Sorrento, Notch Hill, Tappen, White Lake, MacArthur Heights, Eagle Bay, the North Shore,Salmon Arm and Sicamous.
