Behind every new custom home or renovation is a dream – your dream – and this is the time to bring your wish list and vision to the table. Show us what you’re thinking; bring pictures, sketches, websites and plans. Tell us about your budget – what’s a “must-have” and what’s a “nice-to-have”.
Don’t worry about the process, we’ll guide you through it, listen carefully, and add our thoughts and ideas as your vision unfolds. After more than 40 years in business, we’re great at anticipating potential problems and recommending solutions, as well as finding ways to stretch your budget without compromising on quality.
If you need an architect, designer, interior designer, landscape architect or geotechnical engineer, we have a network of accomplished and trusted professionals with whom we work, and we’d be happy to connect you. If you want us to join you when you meet with them, we’d be happy to do that too!
estimate and schedule
Once you have a preliminary plan on paper, we will give you a preliminary estimate of how much your project will cost to build. If you commit to going forward, then we sign a contract, create construction drawings, and a defined scope of work.
Preparation is key to completing a project on time and on budget with as few issues as possible, and the earlier we’re involved in the process the better.
Whether you’re building a new home or renovating, we start by taking care of your applications and permits. Then we secure the necessary building materials and schedule our team and trade partners so that we can deliver the level of quality we’re known for, within the scheduled budget and timeline.
During this phase, we recommend that you choose as many of your finishings and key appliances as you can; many clients choose to work with one of the interior designers in our network.
When construction begins, our long-time team works with friendly professionalism. We know that construction projects can be disruptive to you and your neighbours, so we take care to keep a clean worksite and behave respectfully at all times.
During construction, we handle the inspection process at each stage and make sure that everything is properly approved.
Our work process and billing are transparent. We update you regularly on the progress of your build. If we encounter unexpected problems, we notify you immediately and work towards a timely solution.
We don’t believe in hidden charges or surprise bills, so if something comes up we let you know. And our invoicing is transparent – we attach all subtrade bills so that you have an accurate and honest account of expenses.
Our goal is to complete every project on time, on budget, and with the trademark high quality that has allowed us to build a business almost entirely on referrals.
This is one of our favorite parts of the project, when you take possession of your new home, or settle into your new renovation.
As part of our commitment to uncompromising quality, we do post-build check-ins to ensure that you’re fully satisfied with all of our workmanship.
In addition, our new homes are covered by a 2-5-10 warranty from National Home Warranty, insured by Aviva.
