Looking for a Home?


What projects are you working on now?

We've got one project in the works - a 10-unit, 3 bed, 3 bath, townhouse development at 825 Lampson and 939 Colville. We're designing this development for families and working professionals. 

We're in the design phase now and if all goes well, construction should start in the winter of 2019. 

Do you have anything for sale?

Not yet. We first need to get our project at Lampson and Colville approved by Esquimalt. 

Once we get approval, we may do some pre-sales as construction gets underway in 2019. 

What kinds of finishings do you use?

We build for families and working professionals and use quality finishings like hardwood, gas fireplaces, stainless appliances and quartz countertops.


We are proud of our projects, and love to live in what we build. This is a principle we carry with us in every part of our design and development process. If we wouldn't want to live in it or with it, we won't do it. 

Check out our photo gallery of our Five Two One Foster project to get an idea. 

How much do you expect to sell your townhouses for?

We haven't yet set a price for our new homes at Lampson and Colville and likely won't until we begin construction in 2019. But if you're interested, please fill out the email form below and let us know. We'll notify you when we have more information. 

If I bought while under construction, could I pick my own finishings?

We'll likely have a couple of flooring and colour scheme options available if we sell units while they're under construction. If you're interested in staying connected on our townhouses at Lampson and Colville, please fill out the form below. 

What warranty do you offer?

Lapis Homes works with quality builders in Victoria that provide full two-five and 10 year warranties. Buyers can be assured that if any issues popped-up they would be addressed right away. 

Questions about Lapis Homes?


Why do you do what you do?

We are passionate and excited about good development in well-established neighbourhoods like Esquimalt, Victoria and Saanich. We enjoy building homes that attract families and people who want to live close to where they work and play and enjoy the community where they live. 

We love creating spaces that people love to live in and love to live around, and we want to keep doing it for a long time. 

What types of projects do you do?

We're open to a lot of different projects, but right now, we like multi-family townhouse developments -- creating more houses in the same amount of space. Many younger families and professionals have told us that they like the idea of smaller yards and shared outdoor spaces and responsibilities, as they seek to create community with their neighbours. 

We like this market and think that we need more of it. 

Would you help me with my project?

Absolutely. Even if you're just looking for ideas, owner Ryan Jabs is always happy to discuss a potential development project. 

What does Lapis Homes mean?

Lapis is latin for "stone" or for "milestone." There are many milestones along the way in any development project, so we felt the name fit well with what we do. 

You may be more familiar with the lapis lazuli stone. We were too, and really loved the rich blue patterns in that rock. The added bonus: With a stone like that, it isn't too hard for our graphic designers to be inspired.
