About Us

We are a group of dedicated builders working towards our shared goal of building brilliant homes, every time. We take on projects of all sizes, and are equipped to handle each custom build with the care and attention each requires. With decades of experience between the members of our team, Cherry Lane Homes prides itself on the quality of finished projects, as seen in our Gallery and Featured Homes pages.

Cherry Lane Homes is led by Peter Teschner, a Red Seal certified carpenter and a Building Construction Technician, who has been in the construction industry with high qualifications, expertise and experience for over thirty years. Peter is driven by his passion for quality craftsmanship, bringing together a collective of experts for each new project to see that every build is completed to strict standards. With his carefully selected group of trades companies, Peter strives to provide a budget for each project that is realistic and a true value for the work being done, especially when compared to other construction companies. An accurate budget helps to avoid unforeseen costs that may arise during the construction process – by providing a true estimate, Peter keeps his projects on-time and on-budget without ever sacrificing quality.

Beyond the construction, Peter believes in building a relationship with his clients. Not only does it make the entire process of custom builds less stressful, it facilitates an open dialogue between the builder and buyer, ensuring the finished product is a reflection of the client’s original vision for their home. With a hands-on approach to building, Peter is able to efficiently and effectively construct homes, while maintaining that communication channel with his clients during, and long after, the build process.

When quality is important, you need a builder that isn’t just experienced, but values the details of a build as much as you do. At Cherry Lane Homes, that is exactly what you get – a team that is wholeheartedly dedicated to determining and creating the home of your dreams, at the highest standards in the industry. When quality matters, you can rely on Peter Teschner and the team at Cherry Lane Homes!

Peter Teschner was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada with his family at the age of 4. Peter knew at a very young age he wanted to build homes when he grew up as he recalled that elated feeling his parents felt when they bought their first new home. The fresh smell of a newly constructed home, the aroma of wood and fresh paint still brings back the nostalgic feeling for Peter. His passion for building, his meticulous attention to details, and his professional workmanship leads to the final product when the keys are finally handed over to the owners of the new home brings the most gratifying satisfaction to Peter that is an overwhelming joy, and indescribable desire to just start all over again…. to build another custom home, to build another relationship, to build another dream! To give another happy client a place to call home! Outside of work Peter spends time with his wife Teresa wake surfing on the lake, golfing, travelling, and enjoying life to the fullest.
