“This was our second time building a custom home with Lanson, an experience that proved to be just as rewarding as the first. We loved our first home for 11 years, at which time we decided to sell it to build in a new location. Lanson is clearly building his business on Confidence, Trust and Integrity. One of Lanson’s greatest strengths is his commitment to excellence. He always goes the extra mile to create an exceptional experience with his hands on approach. His depth and breadth of experience gives him the ability to understand our needs at a deeper level and this sets him apart from other builders. This is no doubt going to underscore his success. From the sound, safe structure to the design touches, Lanson applies meticulous detail through every step of the process. He consistently offers exceptional service through listening, supporting and enabling us to transform our dreams into reality… yet again.
If we were to build again in the future, we know what door we would knock on and we would recommend you do the same.”

“I write this letter in recommendation of Lanstone Homes as a general contractor. My husband and i hired Lanson Foster to build us a custom home in 2010. From beginning to end of the project Lanson was always very professional and every stage was completed on time and on budget. He was perfectly accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project.
We constantly saw progress every time we visited the site which was also kept very clean and tidy throughout the entire process.
Since we are not in the building business we had a lot of questions and he always was very good at explaining everything and was very quick to make any changes we wished to the plans. His team is highly professional and you can tell he has a good team of workers that he uses often and has a good line of communication with.
When we were building our house, the house next door was torn down and another contractor is now currently building next to my house. The way i see this house being built, with projects never finished and the site is never cleaned , makes me appreciate him even more! I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and we actually already have to some friends, and if i ever were to need his services again i would do it in a heartbeat.”

“We are writing this letter of reference on behalf of Lanson Foster from Lanstone Homes Ltd.
We have known Lanson since 1999 and he led the team that built a house for us at Chimney Heights in Surrey, B.C. We were extremely pleased with their professionalism and friendly service. We built a strong relationship with Lanson based on mutual trust, and he always exceeded our expectations.
Ten years later when we were ready to relocate to Coquitlam, we sought out Lanson’s services because of the excellent experience we enjoyed when our first house was built.
Lanson has many years of experience in construction; he is very professional, honest and hard working. You can be sure his building services will meet and/or exceed your expectations.”

“We recently sold our family home of 22 years and purchased a townhome in Woodrow Lane from Lanstone Homes in the Walnut Grove community of North Langley.
We had been looking to move to a townhouse in this area for about four years but couldn’t find everything we were looking for. When we heard that Lanstone Homes was building this exclusive group of townhouses we were very optimistic that we might finally find what we were looking for. Lanstone Homes has a very good reputation in our local community.
In choosing our home we had been looking for a quality builder that put extra thought into the design and finer details of a home. Our townhome is well layed out with good-sized rooms and many beautiful design features.
Purchasing a new home can be very stressful, so it is very important that the builder has a good team of people. Our process during construction to after our move in was excellent. (A very nice group of people)
We have been in our new home for five months and can honestly say we love it and could not be happier with our decision.”
–Jan and Bill Clarke, Woodrow Lane
“As empty nesters now we decided about a year ago to look at downsizing our home. We wanted to look at townhouses that offered us similar things that we had in our house of 22 years. While researching the lower mainland we found many developments that offered few of the things we wanted and just could not put our finger on one development that suited all our needs. While doing our research we came across this new development being built within 2 miles of our home in Walnut Grove. From the first moment we arrived at the construction site we felt we had finally found what we were looking for. Woodrow Lane by Lanstone Homes was in the late stages of framing when we first saw it. The location of this development was perfect and just what we were looking for. Once we had made up our mind that this is what we wanted we contacted Lanson to find out more information about this new development.
From our first meeting with Lanson we both knew we were in good hands. The care and attention to details, our requests, our changes, and our added personal extras was handled in a most professional way. Everything we asked for or requested was completed with 100% professionalism by Lanson and his great team. Lanson’s personal attention to details and special requests that were offered all the owners here are normally considered extras by other developers. From his onsite crew to all of the sub trades that worked here at Woodrow Lane we can honestly say it was pleasure working with him. From our first site visit to our final inspection walk through with Lanson his attention to details and customer satisfaction was superb.
Both Patti and I are so pleased with our decision to purchase our townhome from Lanstone Homes and to have received the care and attention that Lanson personally offered. We as all the owners here at Woodrow Lane would be glad to recommend Lanstone Homes to any new potential customers.”
–Randy & Patti O’Hara, Woodrow Lane
"This was our first house build and we had such a great experience. Lanson and Joel helped us every step of the way from our house design to the final finishing touches. They built our dream home and it was on time and on budget. I would highly recommend them to all my family and friends. We feel very lucky to have had them as our home builders and we look forward to working with them again."
Shanon Thornley, North Vancouver
"This was the second custom home we have built with Lanson and we couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out. Building a custom home can be a very lengthy and time-consuming process with many decisions to be made. Lanson and our project manager, Joel, made the process seamless and worry-free. We chose to work with Lanson again because of the positive experience that we had working with him the first time and we knew the pride and care that he takes in turning out a quality product.
Lanson and his team have years of building experience combined with a high level of integrity.
Everyone from Lanstone homes that we had contact with, from the office staff to the interior designer to the trades, were always professional, courteous and helpful. The team at Lanstone homes was very detail oriented and systematic with their approach during the building process and provided us with regular updates so there were no surprises. Even the neighbours gave us positive feedback and would often tell us how courteous and professional all the trades were.
Joel, the project manager was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is a very creative, conscientious and knowledgeable individual with excellent customer service focus. He was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had and always dealt with issues promptly.
Without reservation, we would work with Lanson and his team again and would recommend Lanstone Homes to our friends and family for building a home."
-Mike and Kim
"Our experience with Lanstone Homes was fantastic. This was our first ever custom home build and we were nervous at first. Lanson & Joel were professional, and they always put us at ease along the process. It was a pleasure working with this dedicated team and they far exceeded our expectations. Thank you Lanson & Joel!!! We strongly recommend this team to help any future home builders... keep it up!"

"I just wanted drop you a quick note to commend you and your team on your one year warranty process. Luc and Uli were in and out quickly and did the required jobs with a minimal amount of mess and disruption to our home.
It is refreshing to deal with a company that lives up to their promises and does so in such a friendly and cordial manner. Thank you for our home, and making the process so seamless and enjoyable. I will certainly recommend your company when the opportunity arises."
