Discover The Difference. At Discovery Dream Homes.

It’s not just a slogan. At Discovery Dream Homes we strive to be different. We are a unique and innovative home company. Not just in the manufacturing of your dream home, but throughout your whole home building experience.

It starts with our people. We’re not just sales people on the end of a phone line. We are experienced professionals with the willingness to make a difference. It could be a Discovery Dream Home associate taking a walk through your building site to get a feeling for your vision, or a designer asking about a family heirloom to get that exact fit in the hallway of your dream home. We will be there through all the aspects of your building project to make it an enjoyable experience.

To ensure your home has minimal settlement and checking, our timbers are dried naturally for a minimum of one year. We hand sort all materials for your home to guarantee quality and accuracy. With choices of red pine, white pine and western red cedar in a variety of profiles and sizes, we are sure to achieve the look you are after.

Discovery Dream Homes have raised the bar on accuracy and joinery. We are at a whole new level of quality and craftsmanship in the industry. If it is your dream to see the beauty of all wood joinery or for it to be complemented by wrought iron and hangers, we can accommodate your wishes.

Our architectural service makes a difference. Putting your dream on paper is a lot harder than it sounds. That is why at Discovery Dream Homes we draw from all of our experience. Whether it be a residential, commercial or a government project, they all get the same amount of attention to detail. We utilize the latest in architectural technology to make your dream become a reality.
