Maple Bay Custom Rancher

The owners of Maple Bay Custom Rancher contacted us with the goal of building a personalized, high-end home that would fulfill all their needs while giving them a low-maintenance lifestyle. This couple was retiring to Vancouver Island for the beauty and simplicity of island living and wanted to reflect that in their home. They had already chosen their lot in the Woodland Hills development in Maple Bay on Vancouver Island. With its views of the Cowichan Valley and Quamichan Lake, Maple Bay Custom Home has much to offer.

This retirement home features an open concept floor plan. There are wood floors through the main living areas. Cedar beams add character and west coast style to this rancher. Fir framed floor-to-ceiling windows bring an abundance of natural light into this home. Other features include a large covered deck that extends the living space and a pergola over the breezeway that runs from the main residence to the garage.


The couple decided to hire Made to Last after interviewing several builders. As our client says: “We could tell from the estimate that Made To Last had put time and due diligence into putting the quote together.”

This couple is now living happily in their new quality-built custom home, enjoying its Cowichan Valley views and low-maintenance design.
