Modern Design

Strong Design Accents

Elk River Mountain Homes worked with the Dinnick family to build a modern timber frame hybrid home with steel accents. This beautiful home is in a high elevation location offering privacy and coziness. This home also has high efficiency mechanical.

Location: Fernie, BC

After 20 years of traveling and skiing a wide variety of locations around the world, including multiple trips to Fernie, BC, when we moved to Canada, owning a home in Fernie was an idea that Elk River helped made a reality. Our first meeting with Dave, at Elk River’s office, totally inspired us to turn that idea into a reality! As well as talking about his work Dave took the time to ultimately show us the location that we were to buy and on which Elk River would build us a home.

With the land purchased and our Peter Manolakis design completed, Dave was enthusiastic and engaged in every aspect of our project. Dave’s collaboration on completion of design elements, build execution and project management were top notch. He has that rare ability to visualize the end product and how to practically achieve it while also not compromising on attention to the small details; his insight and experience as a builder and in working in this area is a great asset.

The Elk River team is all friendly, talented and high quality craftspeople who are committed to delivery of a quality product. They love what they do and it shows in the attention to detail and the level of workmanship in our home.

The care and level of service has not ended when the keys were handed over. We continue to enjoy excellent service in pursuing on going small projects at our property following completion of construction.

We would not hesitate in recommending Dave and his team to anyone contemplating building a home in Elk River Valley.

We are now happily enjoying the Fernie Magic!

The Details

We put a lot of pride in each home we build, this shows in the fine details and finishing touches you don’t see in other home builders.
