Why Build in the Sea to Sky?


The Sea to Sky corridor attracts visitors from all over the world, throughout the entire year. 

It’s easy to see why, but did you also know that it’s an incredible place to live? In this article, we’ll take a look at why you should consider building your new home in the Sea to Sky.

This may seem like an obvious one, but the lifestyle in the Sea-to-Sky is incredible. During winter we have world-class skiing on our doorstep. Whistler is home to one of the most famous ski resorts in the world and we’ve built some gorgeous homes on the slopes here. Whistler packs in an incredible 8,000 acres of skiable area, on two mountains and is serviced by 37 ski lifts.

Pemberton offers incredible back-country access while North Vancouver has a number of smaller ski hills. Winters here are also much milder than other parts of Canada!

Sea to Sky Lifestyle

In summer the locals love to get outside. The whole Sea-to-Sky region has phenomenal mountain biking with amazing trails and lots of biking groups. Squamish is also a mecca for rock climbers, with The Chief being one of the most popular climbs in Canada. After all your activities, you can relax in the summer heat long into the late evening. Imagine sitting out on your deck with family and friends and enjoying a local BC wine or craft beer. 

RDC Fine Homes will build your dream home to make the most of living in the mountains.


One of the most important things to consider when building a home is who’s going to build it.

Here at RDC Fine Homes, we have 26 years of experience and in that time we’ve become experts at building dream Sea to Sky homes.

We have a lot of experience in building Built Green and NetZero homes, these homes are both efficient and beautiful.


The Sea to Sky corridor is the perfect place to raise a family.

This is partly due to the Sea to Sky School District and North Vancouver School District. North Vancouver has 34 schools, while the Sea to Sky has 16.

Sea to Sky Families

Once school is finished for the day your kids will be happy and healthy as they play outside. Kids these days can spend a lot of time indoors playing video games and watching TV.

But when you have such beautiful nature on your doorstep, you’ll have no problem getting your kids outside. The Sea to Sky is also a very safe region in Canada, making it a great choice for families.


The secret is out about life in the Sea to Sky corridor, with so many people now wanting to live here. This has created a thriving property market. Building a magnificent home here is seen by many as a smart investment as forecasts predict BC house prices to rise in 2020.

Sea to Sky Investment Growth

With large scale developments planned for the region, like the new mountain resort Garibaldi at Squamish, it’s safe to say that the Sea to Sky is still booming. Developments like this can only increase the value of your potential new home, making now the perfect time to build. 

There are also some grants available when building a new home in BC. The FortisBC New Home Program encourages people to build energy-efficient, high-performance homes which can earn you up to $8,000 back. RDC Fine Homes are very experienced at building homes that fit these requirements.


When it comes to building a home, location is absolutely key and this is another reason why you should build in the Sea to Sky.

Firstly, it’s very easy to get here thanks to the Vancouver International Airport. Over 100,000 people pass through this airport every day with regular flights to BC, Canada and countries all over the world. 

Sea to Sky Location

You’ll also find that Vancouver is only a short drive down Highway 99 from the Sea to Sky, making this area a perfect place to commute from. Vancouver has seen incredible growth in the technology sector with lots of high paying careers available in the city.

There are so many reasons why building your dream home in the Sea to Sky is a smart choice. As well as being a fantastic place to live, you’ll also have the best construction team possible making your dreams a reality.
