Di­a­mond Val­ley Cus­tom Homes

Best Home (Canada) - - Contents -

An Award win­ning fam­ily-owned busi­ness, for over a decade broth­ers Ra­ham and Mike Mcil­roy of Di­a­mond Val­ley Cus­tom Homes have of­fered the qual­ity, ver­sa­til­ity, and fea­tures of dis­tinc­tion com­monly found in their pro­lific build his­tory.

Com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing premium crafts­man­ship, they have built and main­tained a solid rep­u­ta­tion with their clien­tele within Oko­toks and the Foothills area. “We spe­cial­ize in acreage de­vel­op­ments where peo­ple can ex­plore the type of op­tions that gen­er­ous lots and their spe­cial needs af­ford,” shares Ra­ham Mcil­roy, who with brother Mike caters to a dis­cern­ing client. “If you can dream it, we can build it!”

“This was the orig­i­nal home on the es­tate. They have lived here for twenty years and af­ter build­ing their new home de­cided they wanted to keep it,” ex­plains Mcil­roy. With easy main­te­nance in mind, they gave the home a fresh façade with Dou­glas fir tim­ber de­tails on the new dormer for vis­ual in­ter­est. “They wanted com­pos­ite board and ba­ton sid­ing that is both at­trac­tive, ex­tremely durable, and main­te­nance free,” adds Mcil­roy. A stand­ing seam me­tal roof fur­ther of­fers re­silient weather re­sis­tance and a wrap-around deck at the rear of the home hosts op­ti­mum sun­light and am­ple out­door ar­eas for the en­joy­ment of a nat­u­ral land­scape.

Also re­plac­ing the walk­ways and drive­way, DVC Homes in­cor­po­rated a con­crete float fin­ish with a swirl pat­tern, pro­vid­ing trac­tion for pedes­tri­ans and driv­ers alike. The mod­ern farm­house dé­cor fea­tures vinyl plank floor­ing in a barn board aes­thetic with ex­treme dura­bil­ity given the rigours of coun­try liv­ing. Dual fur­naces also of­fer sep­a­rate cli­mate con­trol for main and base­ment lev­els.

At en­try, bright and en­gag­ing liv­ing ar­eas are sep­a­rated by the stair­case for vis­ual ap­peal and room def­i­ni­tion. Dual tone, soft-close cab­i­nets craft a com­pelling kitchen dé­cor with quartz coun­ter­tops, is­land break­fast bar seat­ing, and a built-in wine rack. Down­stairs, the base­ment boasts con­tin­u­ous bright styling with re­cre­ation and lounge ar­eas, as well as a bed­room, of­fice, cold cel­lar, and wet bar of con­sis­tent qual­ity.

“The home was about fifty years old so we opened up the lay­out, re­moved that boxy feel and the clients love it,” ad­mits Mcil­roy who takes pride in con­nect­ing with their clients through­out the build to en­sure to­tal cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion. “Now they have an ad­di­tional op­tion for guests.”
