We were looking for a reputable, honest, affordable, custom home builder in Guelph. On a leap of faith we contracted with Andrew Lambden of Terra View Custom Homes to: permit, design, build, and remove existing dwelling, while we lived out of province. The outcome? Brilliant! Terra View President/Architect Dave Brix had many, many, many challenges on this project. ( too numerous to list, ) Dave’s design looked good on paper, but in reality this house is attractive, comfortable, practicable, efficient to live in. There wasn’t an issue that they couldn’t resolve, our home was brought in on time, professionally done in every detail, and on budget, cost/square foot was very reasonable. After possession what little support we’ve needed Terra View has been there. We cannot emphasize enough, how good Terra View’s people are to work with, easy no drama; this custom home build was a very good experience for us; we’d do it again with Terra View – Charlene, Dave, Andrew, Chris – in a heartbeat.

I want to thank you for the invitation to the Amsterdam Crescent BBQ last Thursday. Ron and I enjoyed ourselves and the food was delicious! You gave us a wonderful opportunity to meet our new neighbours and we went away feeling, even more than before, that we had made the right decision in choosing our new home. It was nice to hear all the positive comments about Terra-View and we are now even more excited about moving into our own Terra-View home. Thanks again to everyone at Terra-ViewCATHERINE & RON - GUELPH
Our family had wanted to upgrade from the house we lived in for 10 years but had never considered a new home unless we could build our custom home, which at the time was unrealistic. I had put the dream of a new home out of my mind until Jim drove down Hammet finding the Terra View model he read about in the paper. He came back immediately to tell me “Lisa you have got to see this house”. Not wanting to get my hopes up I reluctantly agreed to look. So then began our journey to the house we love today. From the professionalism of Sales Rep to the relentless quest for perfection from the skilled tradesmen, building was a joy not a chore. No one needs more stress these days and thanks to Terra View our home is full of pleasant surprises and not devastating disappointments.

Dear Andrew: There are not enough words to express our deep appreciation of your sponsorship and participation in the recent GRCF President’s Gala at the River Run Centre. It is through the support of business leaders, like you, that environmental change will happen. You, Terra View Homes and the Nicholas Lambden Foundation are true “Grand Champions.” Please accept our deepest thanks,
The Grand River Conservation Foundation
The full experience with Terra View has been nothing but fantastic., Considering this is our third time building new, it’s been the best of three 🙂Andy & Adrienne - Kitchener
Thank you Kathy! I just wanted to take a moment and say how nice and helpful Jim is, he really does a thorough job when fixing items in our home (he also did our one year list.) He is always very friendly and informative. All Terra View employees have been kind and helpful, but Jim goes above and beyond and it always solidifies our decision to buy a Terra View Home. Great Customer Service and after purchase care! Thank you for all your time and efforts as well, you are always quick to respond and very helpful! Thanks,Mary Ellen - Guelph
We have built several homes with many different builders (both here in Southern Ontario and in the US). We were very pleased with our home from Terra View. We found the staff friendly, sincere and easy to work with. As with all custom homes, you often experience changes or “curves” to your original plan. Terra View was very responsive and promptly addressed any issues or concerns we had. They made sure we were happy with the end result and felt the quality of the home was excellent. Their after care service has also been very good and they have responded to issues quickly. Thanks again.

Dear Homeowners, My wife and I owned our Terra View home for many years now and we are both very happy with our purchase. We are completely satisfied with Terra View team of professionals that works hard to build quality homes so that all homeowners will enjoy their new home for many years to come. Years ago, we purchased our first home for Terra View. Our research told us that Terra View Homes was a company with a reputation for building quality homes. Their attention to detail, excellent sales team and numerous models to choose from, gave us confidence that we were purchasing a home from one of the best companies in the area. Terra View provided excellent choice of model homes, answered our numerous questions, and provided support in all aspects of the home purchasing process. As a result, we were comforted and confident that our first home was one that we would enjoy for several worry-free years. When it came time to sell our first home, we certainly had no problems with resale value. It only took 2 days and our Terra View home was sold to another happy couple. The same could not be said for other homes in the area. If the need arises to sell your Terra View home, you can be certain that the quality and pride in Terra View homes will work in your favour. We are presently in our second Terra View home. The entire Terra View team worked diligently and professionally, to ensure our new home was exactly what we wanted. Many individuals are responsible in such a complex process, but a big thank you to Andrew, Steve, Kevin, Jim, Shelley, Charlene and David. They each know the important contributions they have made to this process. Terra View Homes is an excellent builder. They have many key and highly skilled individuals that work non-stop to produce absolutely quality homes. We highly recommend that you consider your next home purchase to be a Terra View home. You will be happy that you did. Regards,Zelkjo and Samantha - Kitchener
We moved into our beautiful Terra View home on Waverley Drive in November and after living in it for 3 months both my wife and I want to say that we could not be more impressed with the quality of the house. From day one Terra View staff worked with us from the design of the house to the complex task of choosing each and every detail of the final choices we made with respect to paint colors, floors, kitchen cabinets, etc. etc. etc. Chris, Shelley and Charlene were with us every step of the way offering their expertise and suggestions. Chis, thanks for making sure our house was perfect, Shelley, thank you for your wonderful opinions that helped Diane every step of the way. Shelley, thanks for getting us off the ground and staying with us when we needed you. I can say that based on comparative reviews for both my natural gas bills and electric bills, this energy star home has resulted in significant savings. This is our 16th home that we have been involved with in the past 35 years and without a doubt, Terra View Homes is the best builder we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. To the whole Terra view Team, thanks from the bottom of our hearts.BILL - GUELPH
I would like to take a moment to express how happy we are with our new home. Chris and I are first time Terra-View Homes buyers. It is hard to believe that something that was a dream a year ago has turned out to be a reality today. Building a new home can be very rewarding, but also extremely challenging. The first thing that attracted us to a Terra-View Home was the look of the neighbourhood. We loved the way it felt driving down the street as it felt more like a community rather than a group of houses. Beyond that was the opportunity to customize our home to fit our family needs. The expertise of the Terra-View staff helped us walk through the steps from the beginning, to picking out colours, to the completion of our home. Communication is perhaps the most important key ingredient to a good builder and client relationship. We felt that Terra-View had become a big part of our family. Throughout the selection and building process, we were kept informed, updated, and given the feeling that events were proceeding with our best interests in mind. Any questions or concerns we had were handled in an accurate and timely manner. It was very reassuring to call and talk to Terra-View staff who knew our project. As a second time home buyer, we were aware that the quality and workmanship were very important to us. Our Terra-View home was built to stand the test of time. We found the staff of Terra-View Homes to be conscientious, forthright, and willing to work with us to achieve the home we desired. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Terra-View Homes to anyone looking for a quality home.

Hi everyone: We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and the professional way in which you conduct your business. We are very happy with how the new house turned out both inside and out. Without hesitation, I would recommend Terra-View to anyone looking for a builder. Thank you,Jenny & Alex - Waterloo
When we were ready to buy a new home we searched long and hard for a home to suit our growing family. Not only did Terra View offer home plans that were well thought-out but visually attractive both inside and out. From double garages, second floor laundry rooms and large children’s bedrooms, to soaker tubs in the master bath and pantries in the kitchen, Terra View had home plans that had everything on our wish list. This is our third new home and by far Terra View’s fit and finish and customer service was the best – everyone we dealt with from start to finish was professional, knowledable and friendly. We couldn’t be happier!

What a wonderful experience building my home with Terra View Homes. From my initial meeting with Shelley, there really was no question that this was the builder of choice for me. Shelley, David, Charlene, Jim and Lisa assisted me throughout the process and truly made the entire experience an enjoyable one. The flexibility in customization of the home enabled me to design a living environment truly fitting of my lifestyle. David was able to accommodate my requests with a vision that genuinely complements my style and living requirements. The knowledge, efficiency and attention to detail provided in all aspects of the process was second to none, and as a result I have a stunning home that I look forward to enjoying for years. The team at Terra View is one that puts their homeowners first, one you can rely on and one that you can trust. I would not hesitate to recommend Terra View to anyone seeking to build a beautiful new home with exceptional finishing and environmental efficiencies.

Our Terra View Experience Where do we start? How about the beginning! We went to the Terra View model home sales pavilion, where we met our sales rep. She bent over backwards to make our new home purchase happen. From helping us pick out our new home to assisting us with the close of our resale home. Then we met with our architect, David, who gave us suggestions and ideas we would have never thought of. Next there was Charlene, what can I say about Charlene? Well, I don’t think there is enough paper or time to say. Charlene whom in my case had the patience and expertise that showed her many years of experience as a designer. She went beyond her duties and helped us to select our interior and exterior décor. People, who later visited our home, compared it to a model home. Our site manager Jim, was always available for any questions or concerns, and was quick to rectify any minor problems at every stage of our new home construction. In the end, our home was completed exactly the way we wanted it, perfect!! Everyone at Terra View made our new home purchase such an easy, stress-free, and enjoyable experience, that we wouldn’t think twice to purchase another Terra View home. The attention to quality, workmanship, and customer service, was A+. Not to mention many standard features that other builders charge thousands of dollars extra for. If you’re in the market for a new home, check out Terra View homes, you’ll experience the same satisfaction, and happiness in your new home as we have. Many thanks to everyone,
