With a growing family we got to the point that we needed to start looking for a bigger home that would suit our family and budget. We were quite happy to buy an existing home if we could find the right place. At the same time, we figured it wouldn’t hurt to look into building a new home if we could get some decent square footage to fit our budget. We looked around and found a piece of property that we liked. We called Raymond Faber from West Coast Homes to discuss our options and he immediately earned our trust. He put some drawings together and discussed our options for pricing and layout. As time went by we got ‘cold feet’ on the property. Raymond was extra patient with us as we went looking for another piece of property.
When we finally found another (pricier) property in town that we liked, it was back to the drawing board to see if we could still build a decent sized home to stay within out budget. Raymond did an amazing job of laying out a home that appealed to us. He gave excellent advice on how to save cost, so much so, that we ended up having room in the budget to add a full-sized unfinished basement. What a dream to have all that extra room to move into down the road!
During the construction phase we had a wonderful experience. The trades that West Coast used were very friendly, helpful and willing to give advice when we were visiting the job site. There were times when Raymond would offer suggestions to change things on the go to add functionality – all done without extra change orders.
We would build with Raymond and West Coast Homes again in a heartbeat. They are honest, patient, reliable and hard-working. Thank-you, Raymond and crew for a great job!
