Testimonials What our clients have to say
We are so happy about our beautiful home! Oakes Custom Homes LTD did an amazing job of making our custom home a reality. We had the pleasure of working with Mr. Victor Oakes on the new construction of our dream home that we built in 2016, Vernon BC
We can recommend him highly and without reservation. Throughout the course of construction, Mr. Oakes was a consummate professional. He was clear in his record keeping and time log. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well. Our home was built with care and precision and was finished within the time quoted.
He is working towards being a gifted General Contractor; His team of workers had the house cleaned up for our occasional visits never left the worksite in disarray.
Patience is required when you work with a perfectionist, Mr. Oakes handled our fine tuning request with a good attitude, and we are happy with finished product and thoroughly enjoy living in our dream home.

Victor Oakes was the general contractor on a custom home I designed for myself and family in 2015. I did not take my choice of builder lightly, and, therefore, this recommendation letter is a testament to how pleased I have been in working with Victor on this project. I especially appreciated his sensitivity to my vision of what I wanted in the house and his ability to bring it to fruition with ease and professionalism.
Victor was always keen to embrace creative approaches to design problems, keep within budget and maintain a level of craftsmanship that many have commented on. His attention to detail and his work ethic are difficult to find in an industry that is often focused on profit and quantity over quality. His heart and hand are focused on what is right: creating safe, affordable and unique homes.
If you are looking for someone who is personable and dedicated to creating a home of comfort and quality I would not hesitate to recommend Victor Oakes.
I had the pleasure of working with Victor Oakes from Oakes Custom Homes on my new home build which was just completed in 2019. I was completely satisfied with the quality of both his work and his management of the entire project.
Victor presented me with a detailed budget which we reviewed together. He explained the process he takes with a new build, as well as each line item on the budget. He took the time to hear what I was looking for in the house and ensured that it was captured in the budget / plan. I feel that Victor understood what my priorities were and worked to make it happen.
From the beginning, Victor kept me well informed on the progress of the project. He regularly updated me on the work itself as well as any variances in the budget vs actual costs. He provided me with options and then ample lead time when making decisions. He provided suggestions and advice, which is something that I expected and appreciated. I feel that Victor provided a quality product while keeping costs under control.
Most important to me, I feel Victor has integrity and was working in my best interest. He is patient and was always available to answer questions or explain things to me. Based on my experience, I would certainly recommend Victor and Oakes Custom Homes Ltd.
