In 1983, Joe Ehr knew people were demanding a quality product. He knew he could deliver that product with his own company. So he used his long experience in the home-building industry to start Ehrenburg Homes ("The Castle Company").

Joe’s dedication to quality can be seen in his professional relationships. Ehrenburg Homes is an active member of several industry associations. Some of Joe’s involvement in the industry includes: The president of the Saskatoon Home Builders Association, President of the Saskatchewan Home Builders Association, Secretary and Presidential Appointee of the Canadian Home Builders Association, and the Chairman of the New Home Warranty Program of Saskatchewan.

Where does the name come from? The name Ehr as we have been told was Ehrenburg, and was later shortened. The castle pictured here is the Ehrenburg castle, built around the year 1100. By focusing attention on detail, we create the same lavish features you’d see in castles.


From 1547-1918 the castle was the residence of Coburg dukes. A renaissance building in the neo-Gothic style, it features state-rooms and apartments with lavish furnishings, a Hall of Giants, a Goblin Room, a Red Reception Room, small and large galleries, a Court Church with lavish stuccowork, and a Throne Hall.
