Since 1984, Munro Homes has been building high end custom homes in Regina, Saskatchewan and surrounding areas, building a distinction of uncompromising quality that turned the Munro name into a trademark among the city’s custom builders.
Munro Homes’ reputation is built on trust in Regina. Its timeless architectural designs are constructed with extreme attention to detail, superior craftsmanship and quality materials that embody a keen understanding of the homeowners’ needs and desires. Led by Owners Colin and Ashley Chorneyko, they continue to pursue a number of engaging building projects throughout Greater Regina. When speaking with Colin, he didn’t hesitate to express the reasons Munro separates themselves from the rest of the competition. “Our quality. Quality is such a big part of it. We’ve worked hard and have earned the reputation in Regina as a quality builder,” he states. “Offering the client the best product combined with excellent customer service is so vital in today’s market. Our goal is to exceed their expectations of what a high end reputable custom home builder can do.” Each project by Munro Homes is founded on quality construction and superior service. The company attributes its success to the strength and dedication of its team. Munro Homes’ feature a look of modern design and polished detail. They offer an extensive selection of home designs that include bungalow and two-story custom designs that accommodate various lifestyles and price points. Munro Homes takes their time working with clients to fully understand the specific project objectives. Only then does the company create a package with efficient budgeting, committed price and an achievable construction schedule. “Every home is different. Every home is custom built to how the client wants it. We have plans you can choose from, or we can start from scratch and help you design your own custom built home,” says Chorneyko. “We’ve been working with the same designer for over 20 years, we know how to do things and what works and what doesn’t. We’re always tweaking things to ensure we use the space wisely to create smart, functional floor plans that don’t waste any square footage with unnecessary spaces.” They owe their success to the team’s strong ability to listen, understand and deliver building services with a committed price and schedule. They consider themselves team players, where the client is a part of the team. They work to create design concepts and solutions to meet the home owner’s budget. Munro’s method takes the guess work out of the cost of building your new home. The purpose of this process is to help you see clearly what your financial investment will be and how feasible your goals are for your budget. “We are completely transparent with our clients’ right from the time they meet with our project consultant. When we have an initial floor plan figured out, we sit down with our clients and go through a detailed plan, almost like an ‘a-la carte’ type of process where they have options to upgrade the countertops or the master bedroom, or anything they wish,” he says. “This gives them their base price, with option pricing included so there is no big sticker shock. They can actually see exactly what they are getting for that particular price point.”

You don’t need to go anywhere to see those types of homes, because we are building them right here.” These are bespoke creations that embody luxury from every perspective and are built with only one thing in mind – the desires of buyers to own homes that are as singular as they are.
