Why Horizon

Horizon’s reputation as one of Victoria’s top custom home builders and remodelling contractors is well earned. Here’s why.

Deep Expertise = Peace of Mind

For most people, building is an intimidating experience. There’s never enough time or money. That’s where Horizon’s deep experience adds a lot of value — optimizing budgets, managing deadlines, and resolving problems as they arise. Whether it’s a custom home or a large renovation project, we have the tools, the people, and the know-how to bring your dream to fruition.

World Renowned Reputation

Horizon custom homes have been recognized not just locally and regionally, but on the world stage. Our projects have won multiple building excellence awards, and been featured in publications like Fine Homebuilding, Spruce, and Boulevard Magazine, among others. If you have an inspired vision, we’re the home builder to help you realize it.

Sustainable Building Isn’t Extra

At Horizon, we believe in green building because it’s in our DNA. Unfortunately, most people think they can’t afford green building features. But an experienced builder knows that many sustainable building practices cost little or nothing extra, and often pay for themselves in energy savings. And that’s where we shine — finding alternatives to traditional building practices and materials that don’t break your budget.

Outstanding Leadership

Horizon’s leadership brings an exceptional depth and breadth of construction knowledge to the table. Tim Agar, a veteran Victoria builder with over 35 years experience, leads a team of expert project managers and artisanal red seal carpenters, apprentices, and sub trades.

A big complaint we’ve heard about some contractors is that they don’t keep their crews on the job full-time — they dash from job to job. Not with Horizon. I was on site almost every day, and it was the same team from start to finish. Over the course of 16 months, you realize how important that is when it comes to resolving any issues that come up. That tight relationship and continuity always keeps things rolling forward.
