Custom Home Building Process

Building a home can be extremely intimidating, but regardless of which step you’re on or how much knowledge you have, we pride ourselves on making the process a lot more relaxed for you by talking you through each step.

We think that the more you know about the home building process, the more enjoyable your experience will be. If you decide you’d like to build a home with Vancouver Home Builders, we’ll be here to walk you through every step of the way. One of our skilled construction managers will sit down with you to make sure you’re getting exactly what you’re looking for.

We want you to help us build your dream home.


A no cost, no obligation, no pressure (no kidding) series of consultations designed to help you and your family understand, in specific detail, the steps and costs involved in translating your unique vision into your home.


Whether you are building or renovating, you have a vision for your home. Vancouver Custom Home Builders has the experience to transform that vision into reality.


We will create a detailed project scope, a preliminary budget along with a design schedule to keep things moving smoothly.


Get pre-approved for a construction loan if you will need one so we can determine your budget for building a home. The budget will drive the design and help us to create plans that will stay within your budget once built.

Assessing The Property

Before we can build anything, we have to look at the land that the new house will be built on. Each property is different and can present unique challenges or opportunities.

Architectural Design and Refinement

With the land and building design confirmed, we will bring your vision to life. We do this with detailed drawings and 3D renderings. This part of the process is very interactive and includes numerous exchanges between you and VHB.

Interior and Exterior Design

While waiting for the permits, we will be able to really focus on the finer custom details of your new home. All interior elevations for millwork, bathrooms, kitchens, tiling, and fireplaces will be competed.

Construction Documentation

After receiving the permits, we are ready to break ground. Construction documents include: architectural and structural drawings, design drawings and specifications, the comprehensive budget, the comprehensive project schedule, the detailed scope of work, the construction contract, and all approved permits from the city.


At VHB, we pride ourselves on employing the most highly trained tradespeople with years of experience in custom home building. Our highly skilled management team oversees all aspects of your project.
