Welcome to Harvest Homes!

We are a family-owned business dedicated to over 25 years of designing and building quality custom homes that we’re proud of. Located on Vancouver Island, we offer a broad range of styles and floor plans and we customize to our customer’s individual needs. As Vancouver Island home builders, our houses are all built onsite from blueprints, nothing is pre-fabricated or modular. The lumber is delivered to the job site in regular lumberyard lengths and cut on site.

Our construction expertise doesn’t end there; we are also experienced with the building of other types of structures including commercial and recreational. Our 25 plus years experience has given us the opportunity to build homes all over Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast and worldwide. Call us or send us an e-mail and come by our Nanoose Bay location and check out our two show homes, we’d love to help you build a Harvest Home that you can call your own!

What Clients Say

The creation of our Harvest Cedar Home was an outstanding process from beginning to end. A very thorough, thoughtful and professional group of friendly people brought together by Fran, Gerry and Dan made choices easy and the outcomes just right. We love the house, would have the next built by them and we have no regrets.
Cathie and Mitch Leaman
Harvest Homes is building a home for me in the Central Vancouver Island area and I have been very happy that I choose them as general contractor. Harvest has been more than professional in our dealings by providing excellent advice, over-and-above required service and exceptional communications. Their project management and their operational supervision have been superb. And, although my home is still under construction, I have been in a number of their previously-completed residential projects and each home was very well done.
Linda Shimek
The cottage has been part of my home based business ~ B & B, Vacation Home Rental, and has been much enjoyed! I just wanted to say thank-you for your services and wish your company continued success.
Val Lefebvre
We couldn’t be happier with Harvest Homes! They provide a number of very attractive cedar home designs to choose from and then patiently helped us decide on the finishing during the completion phase. Their prices are competitive and affordable and the finished product is beautiful. It’s obvious they take pride in their craftsmanship as the homes they build are very well made, and they have always been available to immediately address any concerns, even several years after construction. We liked our first Harvest home so much that we had them build us a second home too. If we ever need to build a third home, it will definitely be by Harvest Homes!
