Rockhaven Excellence

Rockhaven believes that the design and construction of a custom home should be centered on the client, that the entire process should be an enjoyable one, and that budgets and schedules are very important and should be met. These are more than just words, and our pleased clients are testimony to our ability to make these beliefs a reality. You can click here to read what our clients have to say.

At Rockhaven Homes, we want to build your home as solid as a Rock, and a true Haven for your family.

From the modest to the majestic, Rockhaven will help design and then complete the construction of your dream home!

Rockhaven takes a smart, holistic approach to designing and building to balance engineering, aesthetics and price.

Take a tour through the broad range of custom home sizes, styles, and finishes that Rockhaven Homes has built.

Rockhaven achieves these results by using our unique, patented Design Plus Program™. Developed by our Founder over 25 years of working in construction, and working with clients, the Design Plus Program™ is a roadmap to success when designing and building a custom home. It was developed to minimize surprises, and to maximize value. And it is available only at Rockhaven Homes. You can click here to read more about this unique program.

Rockhaven also has extensive, personal experience in construction and design. 

Collectively, Albert and Jesse have been solving design-to-construction problems for over 60 years. They started working together on the Grin backyard family rink in the 90’s, on a unique, re-usable, wood frame that withstood flying pucks and January thaws. They found that they worked well together, Jesse achieved his Architecture-Construction Engineering Technology diploma and Red Seal Carpentry Certificate, and they have been building quality, custom homes together for over 15 years. The Rockhaven team, with over 70 additional years of construction experience, allows Rockhaven to currently build 5-7 custom homes each year.
