Sawlor Built Homes has been crafting custom homes in Nova Scotia since 1969. In that time, we’ve refined a process that makes the journey to your dream home every bit as enjoyable as the destination. Our process sets us apart and will deliver the custom built home you envisioned on time and on budget. We form a partnership with our clients and we work together for a common goal, building the best home possible and exceeding your expectations every step of the way.


“ Building a new home in Nova Scotia while living 1,500 kilometers away is without a doubt, a major challenge. The choices we made that week have “stood the test of time” ”
“ From the beginning it was clear that Keith understood that we were not looking for a contractor to build us a house, instead Jennifer and I wanted a contractor to build us a home. ”
“ We were pleased with you, your employees, and sub-contractors. Everyone was helpful, courteous, readily answered our questions, advised us appropriately and didn’t mind the daily (or more) site visit ”
