Carriage Lane Homes is a unique, award winning, custom home builder in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. They focus on creating beautiful houses using the latest green technologies. Their work has been recognized by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC Lifetime Award for Energy Efficient and Healthy Building) and the Ministry of Energy. They exceed the building code standards in ways that improve the longevity and aesthetic appeal of their homes.
"CMHC is proud to recognize Carriage Lane Homes for its dedication to building eco-friendly and healthy homes. Carriage Lane Homes have strived to improve their building practices and demonstrated the skills and knowledge necessary to build healthier homes that are not only energy and resource efficient, but affordable."
"Since its inception 13 years ago, only 51 Ontario builders have been recognized with Healthy Housing Recognition, and Carriage Lane Homes is the first in the Niagara Peninsula. The award goes to a builder permanently, as opposed to needing to be approved with every home constructed."
"It can be difficult to be a leader, to be among the first to try to change the way we look at houses. Not just granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, but as places that affect the environment. I hope that customers will demand more of these homes."
"[Carriage Lane Homes] received a certificate of recognition from Ontario's Chief Energy Conservation Officer, which was presented at a Green Key To The Future ceremony, hosted by the Lord Mayor."
Carriage Lane is a partnership between John Thiffault, who has over 25 years experience designing and building homes, and Lukas Smith, who is an expert in framing and structural components. This rare combination of talents and experience results in well designed and efficiently built custom houses.
