Meet the McKees

Our story begins in Airdrie in 1981. Having recently arrived in the area and yearning for a feeling of home., Martin McKee, an immigrant from Northern Ireland, stopped for lunch in Airdrie with his wife, Ruth. The immediate sense of community convinced them that this was the town they would call home, and raise their two daughters, Elaine and Grace.

Initially founded as McKee Construction in 1987, the name later evolved to McKee Homes, to more accurately reflect our business. With each new home, McKee built his reputation and his company, attracting loyal clients and employees alike. That company helped build the city we still call home today.

Building on a foundation of quality, honesty, and integrity, McKee Homes has become one of the most highly sought after Airdrie home builders. Our customers trust that they will always be heard, because from sales to working with our trades, the McKee team is excited to offer exceptional customer service and support. Today, McKee Homes remains a family business in every sense. Grace and Elaine run the company, along with Elaine’s husband Rob (who also happens to be McKee Homes’ very first employee!) and their son Ryan.

Every home we build is a reflection of the person or family who purchases it, and that means each home is as unique as our customers themselves. Along with building exceptional homes, McKee Homes is active and involved within the community. We are proud to support many local organizations, and to partner with Rocky View School Division to deliver the Building Futures program, which we are proud to have helped create in 2013’s inaugural year.

The Experience
The heart of your home

Building your dream home should be an experience full of delight. As one of the most sought after home builders in Airdrie, we’ve carefully thought out every step of the McKee Homes building process so you’ll feel supported from start to finish. Your journey will begin with the sales stage, which includes obtaining a mortgage pre-approval, choosing and creating your wish list for your new home, and picking the perfect lot to build your home.

From here we complete a quote and professionally designed drawing of your home, and write your contract. Once your contract conditions are fulfilled, you’re ready to move on to home planning. This is where your vision will start to come together! Through several meetings with your experienced home planner, McKee Homes will send blueprints to our suppliers while you book appointments to select your appliances, countertops, cabinets, flooring, and each intimate detail of your home’s finishings. At your second meeting, your home planner will review any samples you have collected, and you will book electrical and lighting appointments. Once your permit has been approved, we will have a final sign off meeting to get construction underway. And now the fun part—watching your home move from concept to reality!
