About Us

Who We Are

Swans are known for grace and elegance. But they are no lame ducks. Swans are high-energy and highly efficient. We chose the swan to represent our brand because it is a perfect metaphor for a Poetry Living home. Gracious and elegant to look at yet built strong and highly efficient.

Our Philosophy

Home is where happiness grows. Baby’s first steps. Birthday parties. Movie nights. Sunday mornings. Heart-warming family meals prepared, cooked and served with love.

At Poetry Living, we are dedicated to helping make home life feel special, warm and real. With comfortable and inviting layouts expertly designed to keep the family connected. Elegant finishes that stand up to the rigors of family life and withstand the test of time. Generous home sites built for backyard fun – because even above the 49th parallel, happiness grows on the outside too.

Core values

There’s a unique feeling of happiness when you arrive home. Some say home is where we go to escape the real world. At Poetry Living, we think home is the real world. After all, where else in the world can you feel completely comfortable in your own skin? For us, that’s what home is all about. That’s pure poetry in motion.

We’ve built our company on five core values


Integrity always comes first, in building and in life, from the foundation up.

Hard Work

Our every effort goes towards total homeowner satisfaction.


In a world of constant change and innovation, we endeavour to bring you the latest in home comforts and lifestyle concepts.
