Customer Stories

Dream with a View


Together with her husband John, Judy Keown had dreamed for years of building the perfect home. In 2003, Jonathan came home from a visit to McNabb Home Building Centre in Parry Sound and shared an exciting discovery with his mother. “I’ve seen the perfect drawing,” he said, and handed her the Beaver Home and Cottage Design book. As soon as Judy set eyes on the plans for Jonathan’s suggestion – the Taylor Creek model – she knew that was the one.

Building your Dream with Home


When it came time for Mike and Joan Smith to realize their plans for leaving the ‘Big Smoke’ and relocating to Ontario’s near North, they knew what they wanted, “We lived and worked in Toronto for over 40 years,” explains Mike, a former executive in the insurance business. “We had a cottage for over 25 years. We thought we’d like to move to Muskoka for a quiet, private life.” Sounds simple enough, but finding their dream home proved more difficult than the couple had anticipated: “We must have looked at 25 homes, but we just couldn’t find anything…”

A Smooth Landing


Bruce Durrer has had his share of smooth landings over the course of his career as an Air Canada pilot but possibly none could have been smoother than building his dream home with Beaver Homes and Cottages. Bruce and his wife Sally said the task was the most rewarding experience of their life. “We were building our dream home and it was a dream to build,” said Sally. “The whole experience actually brought us even closer together!”
