At Van Arbor we want to provide you with one of the most important things in life; a solid investment that will continue giving back to you for years to come.
It’s more than just a house – it’s a comfortable, cozy shelter from the storm.


As a home buyer, you want someone who cares about your home as much as you do. As home-owners, parents and members of this community, you can be sure we want the best for you because that’s what we want for our family.

Work directly with Van Arbor owners

The benefit of working directly with the owners of Van Arbor is priceless. When you meet Mike and Val Lowen, the people who’ll be directly involved with giving you your dream home, it will give you a sense of security, and the sense that your best interest is being taken to heart. Working closely with the owners means you can make comments and critiques at crucial parts in the building process, ensuring you get exactly what you want.

With a background in farming and a variety of business ventures, Mike and Val Lowen decided to become home builders after living in Lethbridge for over a decade. Another ten years in, they’ve built a business they are proud of. After years of raising kids and having multiple generations living together in one house, Mike and Val know how important it is to have a quality living space to call home. The Lowens bring this welcoming, family-oriented style to each house they build.

From early on, Mike and Val have had a desire to invest in people. They genuinely care about their product and work hard to ensure your greatest satisfaction throughout the home building process. With every job they invest time and personal attention to make sure your house meets their standards of excellence. Building a home is about more than just contractors and schedules; it’s about passion – passion for families and the people that make up those families. The Lowens share this devotion. This is why their reputation in customer service is outstanding.


Why Van Arbor

With all kinds of businesses out there promising everything and delivering no more than the next guy, we strive to be different. We only promise what we can deliver. We don’t promise perfection, but we do deliver excellence.

From each warm and decadent interior to every stylish and tasteful exterior, Mike and Val want to keep the Lethbridge community growing, vibrant and beautiful. And they’re doing this one house at a time.

When you walk into a Van Arbor home, you’ll feel the difference. Maybe you won’t notice the bigger sidewalks, the extra hours the designers put into making the layout flow,upgraded flooring and abundance of windows, or the subtle, elegant details in every home we craft, but you will notice that something is different. It’s a difference you can’t find just anywhere. You need the right home builder.

Financial Investment

To better protect the investment you have been saving for, we set our standards to the highest quality. From flooring to siding, we use top grade materials, so we can guarantee you: if you take care of your house it will take care of you with the same enduring style and beauty as it had on the day you moved in. So instead of spending money replacing failing materials in your home, essentially draining your home’s equity, you are saving money – all because of your first decision to invest in a quality dwelling with Van Arbor Homes.

Our Involvement in the Community

As a Lethbridge home builder we want this community to be a strong and vibrant one, for us and for our customers. One of the ways we do this is by giving back to the community financially.
