Doug McIntosh started Neilcorp Homes in 1991, transforming his construction expertise into a career. Since then Neilcorp Homes has never built the same home twice. Doug takes great pride in having named Neilcorp Homes after his grandfather, Neil McIntosh. The old McIntosh Farm in Almonte, West of Ottawa, now boasts a cluster of stunning custom homes, which proudly reflect the integrity of the company’s namesake and it’s where Doug and his family now call home. For eight years after its origin Neilcorp Homes steadily flourished, building beautiful and quality custom homes for individual clients. When a subdivision came available in his hometown, Doug jumped at the chance to take Neilcorp Homes in a new direction. Today, Doug manages the Neilcorp Homes enterprise and oversees everything from new home construction and site supervision to customer service and client satisfaction.
Doug is committed to making “100% of his customers 110% happy.”
Recognizing that a new home is one of the most important investments a person can make, Doug’s greatest thrill comes from seeing the excitement of his customers as they experience their new home being built from the ground up. As Doug lives in Almonte, his customers are often his neighbours which allows him to continue these relationships beyond the completion of each home. In a small town like Almonte, you never know who you’ll meet in the checkout line!
Doug’s love of Almonte and ongoing involvement in the community is commemorated by “McIntosh Park” – named in his honor in 2008.

In Robert’s own words, he and Doug are truly “community-oriented owners,” committed to building the best home for every one of their customers.
