About us

The right source for the design.

There’s something to be said for coming home — a place where all your cares melt away the moment you step across the threshold. Where you’re protected, sheltered from the busyness of the world.

Building this type of retreat requires intentionality, which is why we always infuse the calming nuances of nature into every home, from sturdy beams to delicate textures and subtle features. It makes each home both beautiful and livable. A home that lives, breathes, and grows with you.

Our designs are a haven to come home to. These types of homes define the Tuscany Homes brand and help people understand our solid reputation as a Pacific Northwest home builder.

Ward Toivonen


A quiet man with a big heart, Ward believes in treating people well. He’s a leader who sees details, from the initial structural plans all the way through to the final nail, and works every day to make sure his team is paying attention to them as well.  He’s been building custom homes and logging for more than 20 years, so he knows what it means to take an idea and bring it to fruition.

He’s also raised five kids and has learned to listen until he hears, learn until he’s better, and relax every once in a while. During these rare moments of relaxation, you’ll find Ward hunting and fishing up past the Lewis River and enjoying the solitude of the woods.
