Our Story


When we started our construction company in 1989, we had a vision of building high-quality luxury homes, and most importantly, we wanted to keep the home building experience fun and exciting from start to finish for our clients. We also wanted to maintain 100 percent control of our company, and that meant daily involvement in the business operations. Therefore, we kept production volumes low and manageable—and, here we are, 30 years later with a modest 65 homes under our belt, still maintaining the same core values we established all those years ago.

Owners of Wine Country Homes, Pat and Colleen Hayko, start every project with a welcoming invitation to tour our current show home in Kelowna. This personalized meeting enables us to get to know you in an informal atmosphere and show you the award inspired design and detail that goes into every home we build.

We pride ourselves on our no-pressure approach to building your dream home. If a new custom home is in your future, browse through our photo gallery and contact us for an informal one-on-one exchange of ideas at a time that is convenient for you.

Our Team

Over the years, we have assembled multiple award-winning teams of designers, tradespeople, suppliers and service people who are indeed the ‘best of the best.’

You will meet and work harmoniously with all of them as they skillfully apply their craft to your dream home.

We work extensively with Lee Mullins of Mullins Design Group, an award-winning Kelowna home design company that has designed thousands of residential and commercial projects, from high-end luxury properties to mid-range homes, across the Okanagan.

All of our clients are given the opportunity to meet with award-winning interior home design expert Ginette of Ginette Interiors. Her amazing vision will help you bring your ideas to life.

Colleen Hayko is one of the first people you will meet when you walk into our show home in Kelowna. Colleen has decorated all of our personal homes and is happy to provide everything from a cup of coffee to décor advice.

Wine Country Homes owner Pat Hayko is there throughout your build to provide you with all the professional guidance and knowledge you could need.

Pat Hayko,

Involved in new home building and real estate for almost 35 years, Pat Hayko grew up in Winnipeg, where he started his first custom home building company in 1989.

Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Pat and his wife Colleen moved to the Okanagan in 1996. After a brief stint in real estate, Pat started Wine Country Homes and continued to carry on his tradition of building quality luxury homes.

Word subsequently got out about Pat's attention to detail and his low-key, no-pressure approach. Pat describes himself as a handshake type of guy, and his word means everything.

When time permits, Pat enjoys spending time with his wife Colleen, walking, hiking, golfing and enjoying everything that the beautiful Okanagan has to offer.

Distinctively Okanagan

The Okanagan lifestyle, so active and connected to nature, has direct implications to home design, construction techniques and décor features of a custom home.

Hillside placement of a new home can maximize the breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake, the valley and mountains. However, integrating the elements can come with their own set of challenges. It takes an experienced Okanagan custom home builder to address these adequately and blend them seamlessly with your vision. Cue; Wine Country Homes. We've been living the Okanagan life and building award-winning custom homes since 1989.
