“From start to finish, the process of building was great and we were extremely happy with the high quality of products and craftsmanship that was put into our home.”
After many years of city life, my wife and I decided to move back to the Ottawa Valley. Our career options brought us to Renfrew and we began hunting for a house. After looking at countless homes in a search for something we liked, we came away discouraged, so decided then to speak to a builder.
After meeting with Tom to discuss what we were looking for, he showed us a couple of home designs that we might be interested in, and even drove us around the area countryside to show us several of the neighbourhoods. Tom found us a great lot to build on that provided us the space we were looking for, a short commute for both of us, and offering a great view.
From start to finish, the process of building was great and we were extremely happy with the high quality of products and craftsmanship that was put into our home. Finally, Tom managed to get us into our completed house and close the deal on time and on budget, which in our minds, is evidence of a great builder.

“In the end, Tom built us a home that exceeded our expectations, including being completed on time and within budget.”
Before we decided to build our dream home, we wanted to get rough estimates from local builders to see if the custom building process was going to be affordable for us. A realtor and a business owner in the area recommended we speak with Cobus Homes.
We were very impressed with Tom right away. He agreed to meet us at our lot, offered insightful suggestions about site preparation, house location, and listened attentively to the house design we were envisioning. We toured a home that Tom had built previously for another client and saw the quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail he’s known for in the industry.
Tom was able to give us a realistic estimate rather quickly, and made us feel comfortable in knowing that the home and finishings we wanted were within our budget. We met Tom many times before the actual digging started on our property to make sure were on the same page and that he truly understood what it was that we were looking for in a home.
What impressed us with Tom right away was his prompt response, his patience with us during the design process, and his respect and efforts to keep us on budget. He contributed numerous suggestions to our house design, and pointed out details that could be incorporated into our build which would ultimately make our house a home.
Having never built a home before, we had to rely on Tom’s expertise and knowledge on many occasions. He helped make our build exciting for us instead of the nerve-wracking and anxiety-fueling experience it can be for many people. We always felt confident that Tom was building our home with the same care and attention he would give his own.
In the end, Tom built us a home that exceeded our expectations, including being completed on time and within budget.

“We truly felt like we were part of the build from the ground up which absolutely made this our dream house.”
From our initial meeting with Tom and Deidra at Cobus Homes, we knew right away we had chosen the right builder for us. We have had other homes built for us in the past, but this one was different. Right from the beginning, Tom worked directly with us on every aspect of the house. He was extremely patient and provided as much professional advice as he could to help us make the right decisions. We truly felt like we were part of the build from the ground up which absolutely made this our dream house.
Our great experiences did not end with Tom and Deirdra. Each time we came to the house during the build were met with smiles and courtesy from the Cobus Homes employees. Every trade worker was concerned about doing their absolute best for us and it was amazing to experience.
We cannot say enough good things about Cobus Homes. They don’t just build houses. They make dreams come true!
