For over a decade, Di­a­mond Val­ley Cus­tom Homes has been en­rich­ing Cal­gary and the Foothills area, spe­cial­iz­ing in acreage devel­op­ment. “My brother and I pride our­selves in our com­mit­ment and un­der­stand­ing of our client’s needs through­out the build to en­sure to­tal cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion,” ad­mits Ra­ham Mcil­roy. “Mike has ex­ten­sive me­tal fabrication ex­pe­ri­ence and I have the build­ing back­ground, and to­gether we focus on projects that are out of the or­di­nary.”

An out­door kitchen of pure cus­tom ap­peal on an acreage south of Cal­gary, was con­structed to fit the ap­pli­ances per­fectly. “They wanted an out­door space—an oa­sis if you will—to cook and re­lax and to be with friends and fam­ily,” shares Mcil­roy. Also de­sir­ing a space that would ex­tend the limited warm months of sum­mer, it was de­signed and built to com­fort­ably ac­com­mo­date three-sea­son com­fort.

Host­ing in-floor heat­ing as well as a snowmelt sys­tem with drainage be­neath the Kayu Batu floor deck, six radiant heaters that heat the ob­jects around them, not the air, com­bined with over­sized mo­tor­ized screens on all three open sides of the kitchen for ul­ti­mate func­tion, com­fort, and un­ob­structed views.

Fea­tur­ing a tongue-and-groove cedar roof with beams fash­ioned from re­claimed fir from a he­li­copter hangar in Leth­bridge, the U-shaped kitchen by Dan­ver Stain­less Out­door Kitchens, hosts Dek­ton quartz coun­ter­tops and stain­less steel, pow­der-coated cab­i­nets with soft close func­tion. Fur­ther housing a smoker, bar­beque, and an arte­sian style pizza oven, it also hosts a cook­top and fridge/freezer draw­ers. An ice­maker, out­door dish­washer, and an over­sized cus­tom hood fan raises the bar for full service ameni­ties.

Cap­tur­ing over 2,000 square feet of lux­u­ri­ous sur­faces, the out­door kitchen is ac­tu­ally pie-shaped with a front curved façade that dis­plays cop­per fas­cia with hid­den gut­ters. LED pot lights are pro­grammed to pro­duce select am­bi­ence or “scenes” via touch­screen con­trol through the home’s automation sys­tem.

Thrilled with the end re­sult, home­own­ers en­joyed work­ing with DVC Homes and their crews. “They are very knowl­edge­able. We had nu­mer­ous ideas be­fore go­ing with DVC Homes and their ideas fit our needs bet­ter than any­one else.”

“It was a dream project with am­i­ca­ble clients, a good bud­get, and a true de­sire for in­no­va­tion, lux­ury, and com­fort,” ad­mits Mcil­roy.
