D & S Homes - Regina
The D&S Story
In 1977, Dennis Slater had a passion for building homes, a desire to run his own business, and an opportunity to make his mark in Saskatoon, so he founded D&S Homes and built his first home at 265 Assiniboine Drive. He funneled the proceeds from the sale into his next project, and D&S was under way.
From the beginning, D&S - “Dennis & Sons” - was a family affair. Youngest son Troy was tasked with land development, Derrick became the on-site foreman for all home and building construction, while oldest son Duane took on the role of new home sales manager, until his passing in June 2017. Our company has always been focused on the family, from a management point of view down to the style of homes we build. Simply put, we’ll build homes for your families with the same care, quality and attention to detail that we put into homes for our families.
In 2007, we decided to branch out to Regina, and acquired land for our first subdivision - Stonepoint Estates - which quickly sold out. Our latest offering is the spectacular lakeside community Spruce Creek Estates, just east of Regina. In 2011, we acquired the Greenbryre Golf & Country Club, and redesigned the course to make room for Saskatoon’s newest luxury housing development, Greenbryre Estates.
All told, we’ve built over 800 homes in Saskatchewan over the last 40 years, and business is better than ever. Times have changed, but our commitment to customer satisfaction and our strong family dynamic hasn’t.
The D&S Advantage
BUILD ANYWHERE WITH D&S HOMES
D&S can build your custom home in more neighborhoods than any other builder in Saskatchewan. Other builders own lots here and there… D&S owns lots practically everywhere, including the most exclusive and luxury communities, like Greenbryre Estates in Saskatoon and Spruce Creek in Regina. Why limit your choices when you can live anywhere?
CUSTOM HOMES TO MATCH ANY BUDGET
Some builders specialize in luxury homes. Others build low-budget homes. At D&S Homes, we don’t distinguish between them: we look at every project as an opportunity to build a structure to the highest standard of quality - the only difference being that smaller homes take less time to build. We’ve built Saskatchewan’s most expensive dream homes… as well as starter homes for just $300,000. With great expertise comes great versatility!
SAME GREAT QUALITY, REGARDLESS OF PRICE
We don’t have an A-team that works on the most expensive projects and other teams to work on the rest. When you commission a D&S Home, you get the same great craftsmen on the job. While materials may vary according to your budget, the skill, expertise and attention to detail in their application remains the same - so you get the same great quality, regardless of price.
PERSONALIZE EVERY DETAIL
We are a true custom homebuilder. Typically a new D&S homeowner will select a floorplan and customize it according to their needs - expanding a living room, adding rooms, adding a bigger deck or screened-in area. In other cases, they may bring in architectural plans for their dream home, photos of houses they like - or houses they’ve lived in before - or even just a sketch on the back of a napkin! No matter what your starting point, we’ll make your vision materialize, down to every last detail.
