Custom Home Design & Building Services
custom home by licensed bc builder

At Ranchers by Design, we specialize in custom one-story homes for retired or soon to retire Baby Boomers, which means we design and build houses that fit your life style and needs. Finding quality one-story homes is a challenging task as most of the ranchers style homes were built back in the 80s and were under 1,300 sqft. If your considering purchasing land and having a home built, contact us first and we can help guide you through the entire building process.
