You always hear about the horror stories from others when building a new home, but this is not one of them. Being this was my dream home and first experience with a build, I wanted a contractor I could trust, that would complete the project with quality and value in mind. From the early stages of design through project completion, I felt I was in good hands with Keith Construction.
Being from out of province, I could not be there throughout the duration of the project. However, Keith’s management team communicated very well and had my best interest in mind at every stage of the project. Their team was very professional, personable, and friendly. Options with corresponding budget numbers were provided at every stage, and once selected it was always executed with quality, efficiency, and attention to detail. A reflection of the quality and experience of their personnel and trades they employ, true professionals and tradesmen.
The quality and workmanship of my dream home speaks for itself, and I could not be happier with the end product. It was truly an enjoyable experience working with Keith Construction and I would recommend them to anyone building in the Okanagan area.
Thank you Keith Construction Team!
Our work with Ken Dahlen and his team at Keith Construction came about as a desire to upgrade our newly purchased, dated lake house. They came highly recommended, and for good reason. Our experience with them was top-notch.
Ken took a very committed approach to all aspects of our project. From the beginning we knew we were dealing with a dedicated professional . The renovation was completed on time and within budget by a great team who were reliable, performed quality workmanship and made us feel that our renovation was the most important job they were working on.
The entire project was as seamless as it could have been. Being out of the country for the entire time could have been stressful for us but was not. The team were in constant communication with us through email, phone and Builders Trend and we felt up to date throughout the process.
Keith Construction’s fine reputation is well deserved and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
We love our new home!
Thank you Ken and Karen and Team.
The entire team at Keith Construction was very knowledgeable in helping us turn our ideas into reality; they were always readily available either by phone or email. They provided a detailed written estimate, which was in-line with current construction rates. The project started on time and was finished earlier than scheduled and on budget. We appreciated the fact that everyone cared about the end result, wanting everything to look just right. Our house turned out better than ever expected. The level of service and quality of workmanship from the onsite trade workers was incredible. The crews that were brought in were professionals in their field, and excellent to work with. We already have some ideas for future renovations and Keith Construction will definitely be working with us. We would highly recommend Keith Construction to anyone who is planning to build a home or do home renovation. They are very trustworthy and have great communication and workmanship skills. We researched and interviewed several contractors and we selected the best of the bunch, we choose Keith Construction.
Our experience with Keith Construction, their staff and subcontractors can be summed up as “OUTSTANDING”.
From the concept of our major renovation to the finished project Keith Construction demonstrated their ability and depth to work with us to achieve what we envisioned to be our perfect dream home.
Thank you Keith Construction!

Ken and Karen, we would like to thank you both and the entire team at Keith Construction for building our beautiful custom home on Okanagan Lake. From the initial site inspection, to design, to the finished home being completed when promised. The finished home speaks for itself. We would highly recommend Keith Construction and would definitely work together again on future projects.”
We don’t know who was looking over us when we stumbled across Keith Construction during our search for a contractor but hey, once in a while a guy just gets lucky! The easy qualities you are looking for in a contractor are pretty obvious: honesty, creativity, communication skills, timeliness, accurate record keeping, and ample connections to a pool of trades that put in an honest days work at the best possible price. Other traits are less tangible and much more elusive such as care, empathy and willingness to be accountable. Last but not the least, making you feel that your project is the most important and beautiful project to ever grace the Okanagan Valley. Keith Construction was able to do just that! It’s important to note that after the dismal failure that we experienced while working with a well-known architectural firm, Keith Construction was able to complete our home plans using their in-house drafting. The draftsperson altered and completed the plans, providing us with the dream home that we had envisioned.
We are very pleased to offer a letter of recommendation for Keith Construction. No one at the original groundbreaking ceremony February 2014 believed that just over eight months later October 2014, that our home had gone through such a total transformation. The entire Keith Construction crew and their subcontractors were completely devoted to the task from beginning to end. Throughout the duration of the project, Mike Sanford’s commitment and integrity have been without question. Approaching every situation with a pleasant and professional demeanor, he was able to think on his feet through even the most difficult situations. Mike’s incredible work ethic, as well as his attention to detail and perfection has helped make our new home as incredible as it is.
It is a pleasure to write a testimonial for Keith Construction. Our renovation journey began with a home visit by Ken Dahlen. Ken exhibited such genuine honesty, trustworthiness and professionalism that we realized that if and when we were to proceed with this renovation, we would definitely choose Keith Construction. Our renovations were completed while we worked on a hydro project 1300 miles away. We placed complete trust in Keith Construction and were kept informed of every change, development and challenge along the way. The management team of Mike and Jason were exceptional. Having Mike and Jason organize all the “when things get done” and “what is needed soon” left us totally free to carry on with our work commitments and busy lives. The tradespeople were a team of sincere and dedicated professionals who always welcomed us when we returned home. Their quality of workmanship and attention to detail were exceptional. Our appreciation extends as well to our very gifted designer, Gina Alveberg who shared this journey with us from beginning to end. She was such a valued resource and so instrumental in the amazing final product! Our home is absolutely gorgeous –
We fully expected that building our retirement home while still living 1500 kilometres away was going to be a very stressful experience. On our first meeting to discuss the project we felt very comfortable with Ken, Karen and their staff and they did not disappoint. In every aspect of the project from the initial consultation through design,construction and completion we were very impressed. Ken uses quality craftsmen and contractors, the attention to detail, personalized service and great communication with the help of Builder trend was amazing. We were so happy with the build that we contracted Ken to build us a shop and barn after the house was completed. We would not hesitate to recommend Keith Construction to any of our friends or family. Also we would like to thank Ken, Karen and all the staff at Keith Construction for turning what we thought was going to be a very stressful experience into a very enjoyable one.
“We were extremely pleased with our experience building a new home with Keith Construction. All aspects of the project, from planning through design and construction were handled professionally by a great team led by Ken Dahlen. The personalized service throughout the process and commitment to quality impressed us the most. The end product is amazing and was completed on time despite a number of unforeseen challenges. We would definitely use Keith Construction in the future.”
We have had two separate renovations on our house with Keith Construction over the past 10 years and on both occasions have been very happy with the outcome. Ken Dahlen is very attentive and engaged in the process from the initial meetings through to completion of the project. We find the work to be of a high quality that is completed in a timely fashion. Most importantly, when things don’t go according to plan (and they never go completely according to plan) Ken is quick to respond and correct any deficiencies. I am very happy to recommend Keith Construction and would continue to use them again in the future.
“When my business partner, Richard Leung and I were setting out to build our dental office in Vernon, Keith Construction was recommended as a prospective contractor. Our office was completed professionally and on time. We were very pleased with the outcome.
I felt that if the time came, and I decided to build a house on my farm that I would approach Keith Construction again. Once again we are very pleased with the finished product. I am happy to recommend Keith Construction to future commercial and residential clients.”
“We have had the pleasure of working with Keith Construction on two previous renovations and a new build. We always felt well taken care of with good lines of communication and all our concerns and questions were addressed promptly. The finished product speaks for itself. A job well done.”
Just an excellent experience from design to receiving the keys. Ken and Karen Dahlen and all the staff at Keith Construction make building and renovating your home an interesting and refreshing journey.
