Steven Fitzpatrick founded Made to Last Custom Homes in 2011. He wanted the company to reflect his values and beliefs. As a result, Made to Last is recognized as the industry leader in the Cowichan Valley. We are known for craftsmanship, integrity, and a client-centered approach. Further, we are the most awarded builder in the Cowichan Valley.
We are true collaborators with our clients. As a result, our clients can focus on the personalized aspects of their homes. We take care of everything else.
We guarantee “no-surprise” accountability. Our estimates are detailed, all-inclusive, and realistic. Clients remain informed throughout the build of their homes. We provide weekly updates, bi-weekly invoicing, and a budget tracking document. Our clients know exactly how their home is progressing. In addition, we use a leading software program called BuilderTrend for construction scheduling. This program ensures everything stays on time. It also allows clients to review the schedule and any upcoming selections.
Our company is committed to building quality custom homes, on time and on budget. We only hire qualified craftspeople who take pride and ownership in what they do. From the moment we start building the foundation, we think about how each detail will affect the finished home. This approach has produced dozens of quality built homes and satisfied clients.
We are members of multiple home-building associations, such as the Canadian Home Builders’ Association and the Victoria Residential Builders’ Association. We maintain memberships to ensure that we are always up to date with the latest building trends and practices.
Made to Last builds homes throughout the Cowichan Valley region, including the Southern Gulf Islands. If you do not live in the Cowichan Valley, but you are considering moving here, check out what the area has to offer with Tourism Cowichan.
