Approach – Our goal is to build a home we would want to live in.

When it comes to how we approach building a custom home at Pioneer Homes we focus on quality and attention to details, building a higher quality home that will last for decades.

Founder and Principal Gil Lavigueure designs and builds each and every home and in the last 23 years has never contracted out the design process. As the general contractor and finish carpenter Gil applies his attention to detail from start to finish, throughout the entire home. Because what’s behind the walls and under the floors is just as important as what you see everyday.

Inspired by early 20th Century architecture, his dedication to his craft and building quality custom homes shows in the long list of satisfied home owners. He prefers to design and build just a few quality homes annually, rather than taking the look-a-like cookie cutter route that many a builder has chosen to go. This somewhat unique approach to home building has allowed him flexibility while maintaining quality standards that few builders ever achieve.

Part of Gil’s philosophy is – “A builder should do more than simply build a home, but follow up so clients may enjoy it for years to come.”

From the day that the Pioneer Homes team breaks ground and sets your new home’s foundation, to the day that we hand you your keys and beyond, you can rest assured that all the details will be looked after.
