Made to Last provides professional custom home construction through our location in Duncan, BC. We offer new home construction and renovation projects for both residential and commercial projects. Centrally located in the Cowichan Valley, we build homes throughout the region, including Mill Bay, Cowichan Bay, Shawnigan Lake, Duncan, Chemainus, Crofton, Lake Cowichan, and Ladysmith. We also build homes in Thetis Island and Saltspring Island.

Made To Last was founded five years ago, when owner Steven Fitzpatrick moved to Vancouver Island and realized that there was a lack of builders producing high-quality custom homes. We have built a strong team with over 100 years of combined experience.

Our mission is to bring integrity, excellent workmanship, and personable and plentiful communications to every project we undertake.
