Popular Questions
What is the difference between a custom home and a regular home?
A custom home differs from a regular or standard home in the flexibility and quality that is offered to the owner. A regular home will be limited in the available options. Maybe there are three types of brick to choose from, or a few different options for countertops. With a custom home anything is possible. This is true not only for items such as flooring, countertops and paint colours, but for the very architecture itself – the entry, the roofline, the floor plan, and everything inside. This is the joy of custom home building – knowing that you can design and build a home that is just the way you like it. So how do you figure out what that looks like? Start by discussing your dreams with a trusted professional.
What is the process of building a custom home?
There are 4 basic stages to building a custom home: There are various steps within each stage, and many pitfalls. Don’t believe anyone who says it’s easy, but also rest assured, building a custom home can be very rewarding when you work with the right people.
  • Real estate: finding and purchasing the perfect lot;
  • Design: deciding how your dream home will look, feel and function (including architecture, plumbing, mechanical and structural engineering);
  • Permit: obtaining the city’s permission to build; and
  • Construction: building your home from start to finish.
How long does it take to build a custom home?
Let’s assume you have land to build on. Allowing for design, permitting and construction, the entire process usually takes about one and a half years, or 18 months. (We typically allow 2-3 months for design, 2-3 months for permitting and 1 year for construction, for a 4-5000 square foot home). While a smaller and/or simpler home will take less time, it is not directly proportional because every home has complex elements such as the roof, electrical and mechanical systems, and time consuming finishes like kitchens and bathrooms. You can expect a longer timeline if:
  • You are seeking exemptions from local bylaws (such as setbacks or height restrictions)
  • Your project is in close proximity to a conservation area, watercourse, or subject to heritage restrictions
  • Your project is larger or more complex than a typical custom home
How much does it cost to build a custom home?
This is easily the most common question people ask us. It’s difficult to answer however, without having information about the specific project in question. Where your project sits within this broad range will depend on your expectations for exterior and interior finishing. (And keep in mind, this is hard costs only. Additional fees will apply for soft costs such as land, design, permitting, servicing and other requirements such as surveys, etc.) If you want to learn more about how to budget for your dream home, call us today and we can review a typical project.
