Peter Teschner

President – Founder – Builder

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.

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.
