You could spend less picking a design from a book or buying one of those stock homes. You know, the rows of 8 homes all identical. You’re lucky if they change the front door colour so you know which one is yours.I bet you just cringed. And you probably cringed because you hate the idea of living in a stock home.
You want a home that is unique to you. This is why you want to work with a designer.
When you work with a custom home designer you can get a beautiful home that is uniquely yours: Designed to fit your family size, your lifestyle, and your future plans.
You don’t want to be #5 of 8 homes in a row and you don’t want the stress and frustration of working with a diva designer or architect who is more concerned with their vision than yours.
I’m Eric Lee. I’m a designer, custom home builder, and founder of VictorEric Designs. My designs have been featured in magazines and won awards… but I’m definitely no diva. I’m just as at home wading through mud while inspecting your building site as I am in my office designing.
VictorEric is a full service boutique firm. You can work with one team throughout the entire process of your project, from concept to construction.

In 2010 I discovered there was something very strange happening at our company. When people just like you would call us and set up a free consultation 70% of the time they went on to work with us.
I’ve been a custom home designer and builder since, well, since I started noticing girls. I haven’t spent much time in sales and so I didn’t think anything of these numbers but one day someone brought them to my attention.
Eric, that is insane! Do you know most companies have maybe 20-30% of meetings become new clients. What is your secret?
I didn’t know. I told them, I just sit with people somewhere comfortable and ask them about what they want. When they tell me, I come up with a plan to help them accomplish it. In simple language, I explain how we can design and build their home.
And it turns out, that is my secret. In 2011 we hired a researcher to speak with our current and past clients and find out about their experience. Here are some of things people had to say about working with us.
We embarked on our project with very little knowledge as to the steps but with you, and your team, the process was explained very clearly and we felt very confident with your expertise. From the beginning we felt very comfortable. It was easy to speak with you about what we had in mind for our home. Your group was very easy to contact and all phone calls were answered or returned very quickly. Keep up the good work!
This was our first foray into the realm of building and taking the first few steps was not easy. After meeting with several architects and designers, and much frustration, we were given Eric’s name. We met with Eric, viewed his previous work and asked many, many questions. Throughout it all, Eric was patient and understanding and helped us to better understand the design process.
Hiring VictorEric was probably the best decision we made. Their fees were extremely reasonable compared to other designers and their designs were superior. VictorEric displayed a level of professionalism unparalleled to anyone we’ve come across. Never did I have to call twice to get a reply and often my emails, even on evenings and weekends, were returned within minutes. I have already recommended VictorEric to friends and will continue to do so.
The entire process of designing our home had been an absolute pleasure and we have VictorEric to thank for it.
Theo and Michelle:
A big thank you to you Eric. You have exceeded our expectations of what an outstanding and talented architect should be. Your attention to design and detail, which go hand-in-hand, were spot on. From the beginning you were able to create the house of our dreams with the verbal vision we gave you. Your ability to design such a one-of-a-kind home within the limited perimeters that the lot allowed was outstanding.
You accommodated every request, even last minute design changes, and the outcome was a beautiful heritage-style character house that felt like home instantly. Every bit of this home reflects our personalities.
