New home build in Squamish. Bob and his team were amazingly professional and trustworthy. Dedicated to making as environmentally sensible a home as possible while still getting you the house you want. We couldn't be happier with what they managed to do and how they did it.

My experience with RDC including the team of Mark Robichaud in my Squamish home has been fantastic. He did the job quickly, within budget, and the time frame specified.
Michael Kompass - Blackcomb Liquor Store Renovation, 2016
Outstanding company! RDC was amazing - all the people from Bob to Mark to Rob and all the trades were tip top. Easy to deal with, and consummate professionals! Our renovation turned out even better than we had hoped, and with very few hiccups along the way I would highly recommend!

My husband Adrian and I purchased a home on Sky Pilot Drive in Squamish, BC. I wanted to take a moment and commend Graham for his efforts in overseeing the project. His attention to detail and relentless determination to make us happy and to release a quality product on time was integral to us writing this letter.
We are proud that we purchased an RDC product and we are even more proud to deal with a team that has demonstrated such integrity and diligence. We look forward to experiencing and making great memories in our home. Thank you Graham for allowing the transition to be as smooth as possible. We really felt that your leadership skills should be noted and translated on paper.

My family purchased the rammed earth house at Whistler from RDC Fine Homes in the spring of 2012.
We were impressed by the high quality of design, workmanship and materials when we first saw the house and purchased it on that basis. What we didn’t count on, and what has turned out to be a bonus, is the ergonomic wonder of being in the space within the home. Great light, even heat (the HVAC system is organic, sophisticated and effective), and the wonderful aesthetic of the look of the rammed earth, concrete floors, fir trim and incredible post and beam structure.
It is ironic that what was supposed to be a weekend retreat has turned into “home”, and the city house has turned into the place we go to do our jobs.
What is further ironic, and humbling, is that I myself am a developer and have built the last three homes I have lived in. Acquiring a house designed and built by someone else is at odds with my personal ego. Regardless, I couldn’t have come close to building on my own, what I found through Bob.
I have no hesitation at all in recommend RDC as a premium builder of great space.

In June of 2009 I went to Bob Deeks to ask his advice on building a home in Rainbow, Whistler. After a little research into other home builders I came to the easy decision of choosing RDC to build my home. I liked their vision on building green, passive solar design and the extreme care and attention throughout the process to the finer details of the build.
The house is extremely warm in the winter and very economical to run year round with an approximate cost of $1100.00 per year. These costs could be reduced if the wood fireplace was utilized more. I can confidently say this is one of the nicest homes I’ve ever slept in due to both the quality of the air and its quietness. I believe this can be attributed to the SIP’s construction, the HRV system, triple pane windows and soundproofing.
RDC made the entire process, both prior to and follow up very easy and made you feel that your needs were first and that the costs where invested into only quality products and materials. The RDC staff were always very easy to speak with and extremely accommodating when new ideas, questions and changes were proposed. This for me made the experience very enjoyable and far less stressful.
RDC’s knowledge and tenacity to build a high quality green home is very much appreciated, even more now, having lived in it for nearly two years. Their design to maximize living space is far better than anticipated and I’ve had many comments on how much space the house has for its fairly small 1590 sq/ft size.
In a new development where many homes were constructed with in a similar time frame it was very evident due to the many neighbors comments pointing out the differences in quality of this home versus their and/or others in the development.
Thanks again RDC for building an amazing house!

It is our pleasure to recommend RDC Fine Homes Inc. to you.
Taking leadership from its Owner and President, RDC is a construction company with integrity. This was the third project that RDC has done for us and we realized that the values that Bob Deeks lives are reflected throughout the organization. In-service training, product knowledge, innovative technology, and environmentally aware procedures help to ensure a well built home.
Building a home can be a stressful project, for the owner and the contractor. RDC makes it as pleasant and as happy a situation as possible.
In particular we have made these observations:
- Clarity - Bob listens and answers directly. “We only have two catalogues, Harlene, expensive and very expensive.” This told me exactly what I needed to know!
- Communication skills – Every planning meeting with Laura, the Interior Designer, was followed up with a written summary of our discussion, or decisions.
Every Friday during construction Blair, the Project Manager, and Laura e-mailed a progress report to us, as well as the work that was projected for the following week.
- `Ethics – A respect for one another permeates the work environment. We found that the RDC employees as well as the sub-trades genuinely wanted to do their best for the client and for RDC. Every worker whom we met was friendly, polite, responsible, honest, and skilled at their job. The worksite was always safe, clean, and tidy.
- Except when we incurred an extra expense, the agreed upon budget was adhered to. There was no pressure to buy more, or to buy higher. Our design wishes, colours, styles, and lifestyle were honoured.

In choosing RDC Fine homes as our main contractor for this project we were impressed by their portfolio and reputation. In particular we wanted a company with competence in the green building aspects of the renovation.
Through the project, RDC provided the advice we needed in all aspects of the project. They helped us manage the budget and control costs. They provided a crew of experienced workers and kept to schedule.
The project was a great success and we were flattered that RDC chose to enter it in the provincial home builder’s competition. Our experience with RDC Fine Homes was positive and we recommend them wholeheartedly.
Jim Miller, 2006
I had a 4300 square foot house built by RDC Fine Homes. The design of the house was complex and required attention to detail and the ability to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions to various construction issues that were generated by the design of the structure, while still staying true to the architect’s vision for the house. The RDC team was outstanding in terms of their execution of the project and their interactions with me and the architect.
My experience building a home with RDC both during and after the project completion has been very positive, extending from my interactions with Bob Deeks all the way through interactions with the project manager, construction site head and even the general laborers. All were polite, responsive, professional and took pride in providing a high level of craftsmanship. They have continued to maintain a good working relationship with me in the period after I took occupancy, being quick to handle any problems with the house.
I am impressed with the quality of the finished product, particularly with respect to the interior finishing work and the exterior trim carpentry. Building a house with RDC was an enjoyable experience, one that I would like to repeat.

Because we have built two homes in Dallas, Texas we are familiar with the responsibilities of a general contractor, such as RDC Fine homes and we have come to expect the highest quality work. You and your associates were highly professional, responsible in completing the job in a timely fashion, produced consistently high quality workmanship and followed up on all the items and issues as they arose.
We have no hesitation in highly recommending you and plan to continue working with you as we constantly make improvements to the condominium. Please encourage potential clients to contact us if they have any questions.
