The History of Irwin Homes

A third generation family business that began building close to fifty years ago, Irwin Homes has built a strong reputation in the communities of East and West St. Paul, Springfield and North Kildonan.

"That's where we started doing a lot of our work, and now we've spread throughout the city," explains Vice President Joel Neufeld, grandson of Irwin Homes founder Irwin Koop.

Led by Owner and President Andrew Koop, Irwin Homes has seen tremendous growth in recent years, becoming one of Winnipeg's top custom home builders. And while the company has grown and expanded over the past five decades, Joel is proud that much remains the same:

"Our integrity and commitment to quality is what sets us apart; that's what we believe in. The values that my grandfather instilled when he started the company still carry through today: hard work, honesty and quality."

What Sets Irwin Homes Apart

For Joel, what sets them apart is that when you build with Irwin Homes, you're working with a family run company, and you're still dealing with the people who run the business.

"We treat people the way they should be treated: with respect and honesty. We do what we say, and we do it well. We try to make building a house an enjoyable experience," he explains.

"If you treat people like that in business, they'll want to return. For most people, building a new home is the largest purchase they'll make in life – they have to feel comfortable and actually like the person building it. There has to be a sense of trust and a relationship based on honesty; I'd like to think that that's an area where we perform very well."

Defining the
Irwin Style

As a custom homebuilder, Irwin Homes has the ability to bring any design vision to life. One constant for Joel, though, is that style and comfort must always work hand-in-hand, creating a living space that will stand the test of time.

"We have the capabilities to build anything from country chic to craftsman and ultra-modern. We don't differentiate. We listen to our customers and make it happen."

Why Irwin Homes Loves Building in Southlands Village

"I like the location and I believe in the concept of easier living, plus you gain the value of a single detached home and your own yard," Joel explains, adding that this is a huge difference from traditional condo developments. "I also like that you have larger luxury homes and that you can customize your plan and design your exterior – all homes are unique."
