Ken Sommer

President & Project Manager

Ken has spent the past 20+ years in the new home building industry. He acquired the skills of his trade from a long lineage of family members who have spent the majority of their lives dedicated to hand crafting well built homes. Ken began his career as a framer, working alongside his father and brother on many different types of residential and commercial projects throughout Southwestern Ontario. At a young age, Ken discovered his passion for homes that illustrated strong building science methods along with innovative designs; which inspired his creation of Shirecrest Homes Inc. in 2004.
A motivated entrepreneur, Ken has spent more than a decade committed to learning and refining his knowledge and skills of superior residential design and construction methods in order to successfully deliver a home, centered on form, function as well as environmental responsibility. Ken is committed to minimizing the carbon footprint of each and every home he builds, setting our homeowners up for a healthy, long life spent in the home of their dreams.
Ken is most well-known for his devotion to his clients, providing them with his meticulous attention to detail and continuous involvement in each stage of the project. His trusting and caring nature provides a very thoughtful process with your requirements in mind, beginning with the preliminary phase of your home’s design, carrying through long after your closing day.
His mission to remain current in this industry truly sets him apart. Ken is always searching for the best technologies and building techniques to adopt in order to provide all homeowners with top of the line methodology, systems and products in order to consistently raise the bar and deliver exquisite quality and craftsmanship; for the best value.
“We invite you to find out more about Shirecrest Homes while allowing us the opportunity to share your vision.”
