Designing and building custom homes since 1995

We take pride in our outstanding craftsmanship and our commitment to building quality homes for Okanagan families

Since 1995, Candel Custom Homes has been designing and building custom homes throughout the Okanagan Valley.

The care and attention to detail in every Candel Home is completely genuine and it is these touches that make a house a home. We are an independent builder of custom homes and over the years we have earned an unparalleled reputation for providing our homeowners with exceptional quality and value. The entire team at Candel Custom Homes is passionate about what they do and the homes that they build, working to exceed industry standards and provide exceptional homes on time and within budget.

When you choose to work with Candel Custom Homes, you are choosing to work with a smaller, hands-on team. You are making a decision to work with people that you can truly know, rather than a corporate entity. Candel Custom Homes knows the value of your hard-earned dollar, and the importance of having a house that you can truly call your home.

They were professional and their work was superb...

“Candel Custom Homes was recommended to us by a well known local designer. We met Randy Therrien to discuss construction of our “Forever Dream House.” Randy was direct, honest, confident, and we immediately felt a connection.

Candel Custom Homes began construction on schedule. From the foundation, with the carpenters, framers to the painters, electricians and all the trades, they were professional and their work was superb. Our son, who is an engineer working in construction, kept telling us how well he thought things were being done. All through the build, Randy was there to supervise and our meetings were regular to discuss progress. Randy was always able to offer alternatives and would discuss the pros and cons of construction materials. He gave recommendations and would often suggest less expensive yet equally durable and aesthetic products. He seemed there for us, and was even more “visible” as the build came to the end. From obtaining permits, to scheduling and procuring the best tradesmen in the business, he stayed within budget. All was handled with ease and a smile! We have remained friends after the build.

We would highly recommend Randy Therrien and Candel Custom Homes as a credible, responsible builder in luxurious,yet affordable homes.”

From our initial meeting through to handing over the keys, Randy and his crew were outstanding...

“Colin and I would like to personally thank Randy of Candel Custom Homes for working with us through a very exciting journey in building our new home. I knew from the minute I met Randy he was the person I wanted to work with. When we entered the decision to build, I knew a little about what to expect having had friends who have built, but not to the extent I do now after working with Randy and his crew. I also knew that I needed to work with someone who cared about the process, what we as owners would encounter, and be willing and open to work with us through the process in full. Randy and his crew did just that. He and his team were more than knowledgeable and answered any questions we had along the way (and at times we had many questions!!). From our initial meeting through to handing over the keys, Randy and his crew were outstanding. Words truly do not express the appreciation we have as he went above and beyond our expectations. Assisting with design concepts, offering alternatives to ideas we had, and encouraging us to be involved in the process as much as we needed to, were just a few of the highlights that made this such an enjoyable experience. If I had the chance to do it again, I’d use Candel Custom Homes in a heartbeat.   

Candel Custom Homes treated our family with respect, class and dignity, and we are very thankful that you took the time to personally tender to our needs. Those particular qualities that you and your crew demonstrated made the process a wonderful experience. The quality of representation and the attention to detail from the beginning of the process to the finished product has been remarkable.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Needless to say, our family is very happy that we decided to have Candel Custom Homes be our “family” builder. Thank you so very much for your dedication to our project and our family. We appreciate all that you have done for us.”
