Oke Woodsmith is a firm, dedicated to building distinctive custom homes across Southwestern Ontario.

Our family operated firm has developed a reputation for high-quality single family homes with features most builders consider options or upgrades. The attention to detail shown from your first visit through to the completion of your dream is what makes Oke Woodsmith a leader in the residential home building industry in Canada.

The Oke Woodsmith Collection

By choice, Oke Woodsmith builds only a very few, very select homes each year. And no two are the same. That's because we believe each custom home should not only reflect the specific tastes, character, and aspirations of its owners; it should also be a superbly appointed masterpiece with classic features that stand the test of time.
