This is our second new home build but our first time working with Denim. Denim outperformed our expectations at every phase. We selected Denim based on their experience with building to high energy efficiency standards but beyond the building envelope, we also had high expectations with respect to the quality of the finishes we wanted for our forever home. The finished product is beautiful, comfortable and energy efficient. Denim brought us great ideas to achieve our design aesthetic, with a mix of contemporary and traditional elements. They worked closely with us to realise our wish list and kept us engaged and informed at each stage of construction. We couldn’t be more pleased with our home, Tara and Steve
After meeting with several builders we chose Denim Homes because they saw our vision for a truly custom home. We had developed plans and knew that the knowledge and creativity of their team would be the best fit for us to build the home we envisioned. Denim successfully builds energy efficient homes which was also a selling feature for us. The sub trades were talented, easy to work with and took the time to listen to the details we expected. The Denim team is organized and experienced and throughout this process we knew that each member was working to ensure that they built the house we were dreaming of! Caleb brings vast knowledge and the ability to problem solve creatively when necessary. Hillary is the cog in the wheel that keeps everything running smoothly! We would recommend Denim Homes and are loving every minute in our new home.

We were in New Zealand for the whole time our house was being built, so it was very important to us to work with a builder we trusted and who was able and willing to communicate regularly online, and keep us fully informed even though we were on the other side of the globe. We also needed a builder who would take care of the entire build, help us finalize our design, handle all permits, coordinate trades, and help us with all the choices for interior finishes. And we needed to work within a fixed budget. We were expecting a lot! We got exactly what we needed from Denim Homes. We have been really impressed with the Denim staff, who are knowledgeable, responsive and take real pride in their work. Between them and their client website, we felt fully involved in every step of the build. As well as regular weekly updates, we got plenty of photos, every expense and change order was itemized, and Denim quickly answered our questions and found solutions to issues that came up during the build. The house is exactly as we expected it to be--better in fact. The quality of the build, particularly the energy efficiency factors have really impressed us. We are very happy with our new home.
Overall, our experience was extremely positive and we would not hesitate to build again with Denim Homes or to recommend them to other clients.In custom home design it is inevitable that issues will arise during construction. In all cases Denim Homes was very open minded in reaching mutally acceptable solutions to problems.Denim's selected trades were all excellent. The Denim office staff were outstanding/capable/diligent and acted on our behalf in every instance.In conclusion, Denim Homes were a pleasure to work with, and from a customer's perspective, the most important attribute was that you listened to our plans and dreams and turned them into a reality.
I would like express my sincere thanks and appreciation to Denim Homes for building a beautiful, comfortable, energy efficient and high quality house for us.Throughout the whole process, from planning to completion of the house, I found the entire Denim Homes' team to be very knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, and organized. I can say the same about all the sub-trades you work with as well. As a result you were able to build our house on schedule, and within budget, inspite of the severe weather conditions and couple of major unexpected site conditions issues that you were faced with. All concerns and issues that came up during construction were handled in a very professional and most economical way. I really liked that I could go on-line and see the updated pictures of the house as it was being built, check the status of the construction. and any change orders that were issued. Everything about you personally and your team was professional and pleasant, that reflected pride in what you do. The process of selecting a contractor to build our house was a very difficult one, but I am so glad we selected Denim Homes. If we were to build another house, the Denim Homes without any hesitation would be our top choice.
The Denim Team includes a group of young, energetic and innovative professionals. Our decision to have them build our new house was made after several meetings with them and other contractors.The first thing you notice when walking into the office of Denim Homes is Hillary’s welcoming smile and her willingness to share whatever treat happens to be on her desk that day. Caleb, Steve and Robert, Project Manager always made themselves available to address any concerns and explain anything we wanted or needed to know during the building process. Josh is the design genius and we learned to follow his advice regarding design changes. Stephanie, who served above and beyond the call of duty, guided us patiently through the hundreds of choices to be made when building a new home. Jessica spent many hours planning the kitchen to meet our wants and needs all the while keeping a close eye on the budget. After living in our new home for several months we could not be more pleased. Living on top of a windy hill has made us appreciate Denim’s concern with energy efficiency and their knowledge and use of the latest in insulating technology. Our energy costs have been a pleasant surprise.We have enjoyed watching Denim Homes gather numerous awards in the construction industry and we feel they are well deserved. It was a pleasure working with everyone on the Denim Team and we would recommend them to anyone considering building a new home.
We actually found Denim Homes simply by randomly searching online. We first found the Award winning Home in Sackville and really liked its energy efficiency feature. We immediately went to the builder – Denim Homes, hoping to steal some ideas from them. As it turned out, they listened, asked, and modified one of their energy efficient plans for us. 5 months later, we moved into our new home with almost everything we dreamed for. Also comes the bonus: our home won 2012 Nova Scotia Energy Efficient Home Award. Thanks Caleb, Robert and Hillary. You guys are amazing! Oh, we also want to thank ourselves for choosing the right builder :)
When my husband and I decided to build a home, we looked at a lot of different companies. We ended up meeting and discussing with Denim Homes and felt very comfortable and confident with them. Building with Denim Homes was more than just building a home. They were always there every step of the way, and had great knowledge when it came to everything. Denim Homes has an amazing team. They are very trustworthy, nice, and as their website states - they definitely have integrity. They built us such a beautiful home and took our vision and made it a reality. I would recommend Denim Homes to ANYONE who is building a home. As in my opinion, they are the leaders in building superior homes :)
After researching and talking to friends we chose Denim Homes to build our beautiful retirement home. We are so glad we did! Open and ongoing communication combined with careful attention to detail gave us the warm cosy home we wanted. Thank You to the Denim Team.
