Building luxury custom homes with you in mind has been Ridgewest’s motto for decades. Don and Elizabeth Nielsen have had the pleasure of building and designing some of the finest homes in many prestigious neighbourhoods throughout the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, including: South Surrey, White Rock, Tsawwassen, West Vancouver (North Shore), and the west side of Vancouver.


Each custom building plan is designed to fit the unique needs of the homeowner. Ridgewest Homes has become highly respected in the Vancouver custom home building market because it treats each custom home project as a multidimensional undertaking. From its inception, Ridgewest Homes has been more than just a business – it is a lifestyle for Elizabeth and Don.


The Ridgewest Homes’ foundation was built on a comprehensive style of luxury custom home building. Its business model provides unparalleled customer service as talented interior designers and home builders work to satisfy every detail of our clients’ visions. We produce top quality homes through attentive communication at all phases of a project. Our comprehensive home building services include:

  • Comparative Market Evaluations

  • Project Consultations

  • Budget Meetings

  • Design Consultations

  • Luxury Custom Home Building

  • Interior Design

  • Full Interior/Exterior Renovation


Each Ridgewest custom home project spotlights careful planning, workmanship integrity, quality materials, and skilled craftsmanship. What sets us apart from other custom home builders is that we create timeless residential luxury coupled with lasting resale value. From forming and framing homes in the British Properties of West Vancouver to renovations and finishing in Morgan Creek and South Surrey, Ridgewest Homes has built a name for itself in the multi-million dollar custom home market.


Our mission is to be the custom home builder you turn to no matter where you live in the BC Lower Mainland. While construction projects are bound to come with their fair share of surprises, we are confident that with Ridgewest as your partner, any problems will be resolved far beyond your expectations.


Don and Elizabeth Nielsen believe the first step to any successful multi-million dollar custom home project is to act as developers and execute a comprehensive market analysis. The Vancouver and Fraser Valley real estate market is in constant flux which is why comparative analysis and market research is crucial before any budget or design concepts are established. The Ridgewest Homes team aims to determine whether or not each prospective home site makes sense and provides homeowners with the long-term value they deserve. The Ridgewest business model extends far beyond home building into dozens of other tasks such as coordination of subcontractors, legalities, building codes, and zoning regulations.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
