In a day and age where home builders seem to come and go what has allowed Shaughnessy Homes to last over 25 years? What has allowed us to perfect our craft and provide a product second to none?

Often in new construction you hear "buzz" words of quality craftsmanship, superior product and innovative design, all of which we have but the success of this company was founded and continues to run on one key principle; your happiness is our measure of success.




We believe

that to have a role in helping you build your dreams is an honour we wish to always be able to perform so as such, we take great care in every step of the process. We build a home for you as if we are building a home for us, a simple rule that has allowed us to always provide the highest quality product built with the greatest of care.

Everything we do,

from initial lot selection to the moment the “For Sale” sign is hung, is done with you in mind. This rule has served us well over the years and is what has allowed us to be a key part in the growth of many developments in HRM.


the difference that is Shaughnessy Homes, where integrity and skill unite.
