The Ideal Location
Location, location, location. Sometimes the journey of custom home building starts with the perfect location and other times the vision you have of your perfect custom home plan comes first and finding the ideal lot for your Okanagan custom home comes after. Either way, these two things location/lot and house plan need to fit together seamlessly.
Our president and owner, David Pfuetzner, has been building homes throughout the Okanagan for over 35 years. He and our team are well versed in understanding exactly what type of home can fit on a lot. The Okanagan offers an array of options from lake front to acreages and beautiful hillside locations with sweeping views of the lake. The team at Align West Homes can assist you in finding the perfect location for your new home or ensuring you design just the right home that meets all your needs on the lot you already own.
