Our Story

S&L Porter Homes had humble beginnings. Steve Porter was working in the construction industry for over 20 years when he founded our company, with the vision of providing clients looking for custom-built homes with honest, dependable service that they wouldn’t find anywhere else. Now, almost 40 years after his career began, S&L Porter homes are one of St. John’s premier home building companies. 

As S&L Porter Homes continues to expand, a second generation of leadership is growing as Lucas Porter, Steve’s son, provides the same level of expertise and service that the Porter name is known for. This has also allowed Steve the time to serve for a second term as the current President of the Canadian Home Builders Association NL. As an experienced member and builder, he provides the association with solid leadership necessary to advocate for the industry and quality product for consumers. 

Creating and building beautiful new homes on the scenic Avalon Peninsula, Steve and his team focus on building custom single-family homes for a wide variety of clients, including empty-nesters, young families, and individuals looking for truly unique builds that suit their lifestyles. At S&L Porter homes, we build exceptional homes for every stage in life.

We’re committed to keeping our promises. With transparency, quality, and authenticity at the heart of the custom homes we create – our goal is to craft excellent houses, and bring your vision to life.

We have assembled a team of professionals whose sole purpose is to build you a quality home to enjoy for years to come.
