About Dreamland Homes

The Dreamland Homes legacy began in 1977 when its founder, Pasquale Pelosi, turned his long-time dream into reality by building his first home. Already a skilled and talented bricklayer, home building seemed to him a natural next step, and he hasn’t looked back since. Today, his four sons have joined him in the business, continuing his dream.

Dreamland Homes is proud of its 30-year history building quality-conscious homes and lasting communities. From the onset, the company has been fueled by passion and honesty, values we believe in.

Over the years, Dreamland Homes has designed and constructed hundreds of fine homes, in master-planned communities throughout York Region. Our neighbourhoods offer prestigious lifestyles, stunning interiors, and breathtaking design, always with an eye to the smallest detail. In fact, Dreamland Homes is proud to have an excellent ZERO claim rating since day one.

It all starts with a keen eye for location. Before the shovel even hits the ground, we consider criteria such as distance to amenities, preservation of natural surroundings, and the environment. Then, we design our homes to fit the location, working with the surrounding architecture and motifs to create a selection of wonderfully-appointed home designs to choose from.

Our passion for home building can be seen in the extra care and consideration that has become our trademark. Generations of homeowners have put their faith into a company that genuinely puts them first. Dreamland Homes: Quality from our family, to yours.

The Difference

For over 35 years now, we at Dreamland Homes have worked hard to ensure every home built meets our high standard of quality and excellence.  Not an easy task, considering the hundreds of steps involved in building a high-quality home.  Here are just a few, but important differences in a Dreamland built home.

DESIGN

With every new community, we meet with our architect firm to determine the best designs possible for the area.  We could just copy designs from past sites, but that’s not us.  We ensure designs fit the community and you.  By using a mix of materials, such as brick, stone, and maintenance free cladding, we are able to create wonderful designs that stand the test of time.  Floor plans are scrutinised and reviewed until we are happy with the layout.  Open concepts, whenever possible, and 9’ main floor ceilings are always a must and if you are looking for something a little more custom, we’re always open to changes.

A GOOD FOUNDATION IS KEY

We decided long ago that control from the ground up is crucial for a quality built and long lasting home.  We excavate and prepare all or our own foundations.  By doing so, this ensures proper home placement on your lot, and a level footing for foundation walls to be constructed.

SILENCE IS BLISS

Since our foundations are strong and sound, we carry on that level of quality throughout the home.  We use an engineered flooring system which produces a stronger floor with less flex.  By using this system, we dramatically reduce any floor squeaks.

On top of this, we install 5/8” thick spruce plywood subfloor – not thin OSB board that splits, warps and cups. Using spruce plywood prevents tile from cracking and further reduces the chance of any squeaks or creaks.  Rest assured, in our homes, those sneaky midnight snacks will go unnoticed.

A COMFORTABLE HOME

A comfortable home makes for a happy home; and today, efficiency makes for a happy homeowner.  Included is a high-efficiency HVAC system that keeps the inside of your home comfortable year round.  Low E, argon filled vinyl casement windows keep the inclement weather out.  Since we build our homes air tight, we also include an HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) System, which brings filtered fresh air in, and exhausts stale air out.  These systems work together to make your home’s air quality perfect for those lazy Sundays when a good book and a comfy sofa take priority.

IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS

We look at our builds like they are our own.   Modern materials and finishes are prominent throughout.  Satin nickel hardware, decora light switches & receptacles, colonial baseboard and trim-work are all standard with Dreamland.  From larger basement windows that let more light in, to  exterior holiday plugs, making it easy to decorate your home during the holidays, we strive to anticipate your needs and ensure you are well equipped from the moment we hand you the keys.

President’s Message

From a humble beginning, my sons joining me, and plenty of hard work, together we created many wonderful communities in York Region.
In 1999, Dreamland Homes was honoured by being awarded the Reader’s Choice Award for Best Builder.

To be an owner of a Dreamland home not only means fulfilling your dream, but also ours by becoming part of our family and sharing in the history of Dreamland Homes. It is this history and tradition that my children, and hopefully grandchildren, will be able to carry on by continuing to build homes of unique design and quality, from our family to yours.

Founder & President

Our Commitment

Over the past 30 years, we (our family, staff, and trades) have strived to build beautiful homes and safe communities through creativity, a keen eye for location, and quality craftsmanship.

Dreamland Homes builds homes where families can grow. Regardless if you are a young couple just starting out in life, or a couple of empty-nesters, home is home and we understand that. A home needs to be unique, inviting, safe and spacious with everything you need close by. That’s why we take the time to select key locations for new communities, and design models and floor plans that work with the landscape.

It doesn’t stop there. Customer service begins with a smile and a “how can we help?”, and it’s been that way since the very first home we’ve built.

Buying a home can be a very exciting, but also a stressful, experience. At Dreamland homes, we’re committed to making your home buying experience a pleasant one from the first time you meet us, to the time you walk into your new home and beyond. We are committed to meet your expectations and needs first time, and every time.

Quality. For us, quality means better materials, energy efficient designs, craftsmanship, fit and finish, and honesty. It’s the ability to change with needs while still creating a quality built home, from our family to yours.

Hi Dan, I was peeking in the window of our new place on Saturday when your brother spotted me. I thought he was going to get upset that I was looking around but to my surprise and delight he asked if I would like him to open it up so I could have a look around. I wanted to pass on my thanks to him and compliment all of you at Dreamland for how well you have treated us. Ted and I have been so impressed with how we have been handled and often discuss how thankful we are to have chosen such a great builder.

Please pass on my thanks to your brother, he made my day!

Pelosi Family,

Thank you, Thank you, Thank You! You made buying our new home a wonderful experience. There are no words to fully express how much we love our new home.

What a wonderful family. First we met Dan with his beautiful smile. We don’t care what John & Dina say, we love the babies of the family. We met dad briefly, but you can tell what a hard working man he is and how he raised you guys to be the same.

John, right from the beginning you made everything very easy for us. You treated us with such respect and that made us feel very special. We know that you guys put the same hard work into every home, but you made us feel like our home is one of a kind, and like we were the only house on the street. We really appreciated everything you all have done for us. We would never hesitate to share the good experience we had with anyone who asks. Words cannot describe our gratitude towards you.

You all will be in the area for the next couple of years, so please always remember that our home is open to you all, anytime.

God Bless you and your families.
