Built by our family to create a home for yours


Warkentin Custom Homes (WCH) was founded in 1980 by Walter and Carol Warkentin. A carpenter by trade, Walter loved the process of creating a project, working out the details, and seeing it come to life. An extension of his passion, Walter created WCH – a company built on integrity and honesty.

Upon his retirement, Walter passed the company on to his daughter, Melanie, who shares his passion for home building, as well as his drive to see projects through from start to finish in a timely fashion.

The construction sensibilities and best practices that Walter instilled from the start are still alive today in our home-building, and we’re proud to carry on the tradition of building custom spaces that suit Manitobans and their families.
