The History of Maric Homes

Maric Homes was started over 40 years ago by Steve Maric, originally a cabinet maker by trade, and his wife Cathy Maric. They began by building only a few houses per year but have since grown in scale and capacity. In the 90s, Steve Maric decided to focus on a specific corner of Winnipeg’s high-end housing market: beautifully finished custom homes.

40 years is a long time, and a great deal has changed in the Winnipeg housing market and for Maric as a company. Steve and Cathy’s son Peri Maric has now joined the family business, and one of the big changes that Peri has noticed is how well-informed people are these days about the building process.

“The internet has been the driving force,” Peri explains. “There is so much information available online – it’s right at your fingertips. People have a great idea of fixtures and they even specify structural components. 30 years ago you would draft up a house and go – now you go through every piece with the client and their ideas are becoming more and more specific. Our approach to custom building allows us to truly accommodate this – we are specific and detail oriented, and we have clients involved from the contract stage through design all the way to the point of the keys being passed off.”

What Sets Maric Homes Apart

When asked what sets them apart, Peri answers that without a doubt it’s their level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. “It’s obvious when you go into one of our show homes: the level of detail, millwork, finishing work… how precise it all fits. We make sure that all of our homes are completely functional and intelligently planned, but spectacular – it’s a lot of work, but worth it in the end.”

And as the times have changed, so has their use of technology.

“We have a strong presence on and we use that as a tool,” Peri explains. “We’ll ask our clients to begin an idea book and go from there. As for bringing technology into the building process, we use AutoCAD, but we’ve also started using something called SketchUp to do quick 3D renderings – this allows us to mock up an idea, giving our client a clear idea of spatial relations.”

Defining the Maric Style

Peri describes the Maric style as “warm modern.” He explains, “We have very clean lines and all of our spaces are connected, but there is always some sort of visual cue that you’re entering a new space. Whether it’s a transition of the flooring or ceiling, there is a subtle way to delineate between spaces. We love clean lines and minimal flourishes to keep it subtle. Nothing gaudy.”

Why Maric Homes Loves Building in Sage Creek

“I live in Sage Creek and I love it there! It has a great community feel and it’s very safe and pretty,” Peri answers when asked about what sets Sage Creek apart. “They have all kinds of pathways and lakes and parks, plus the school is coming soon and the Sobeys is great.”

For builders, the area offers a great deal of latitude, which fits with Maric’s custom focus. “It’s great as a builder as they encourage clever and creative designs. They encourage cool ideas and it’s not cookie cutter after cookie cutter.”
