Custom Homes Solutions in Toronto & the GTA

The process of building a custom home consists of several important steps. First, you need to find the right team to help you achieve your goals. Second, you need a design. Some people have a design in mind while others need help gathering their ideas. Expect that, despite having a highly detailed plan in place, adjustments may be necessary to accommodate practical considerations, such as adhering to the requirements of the Ontario Building Code (OBC).

Most new home designs start with an appointment to lay out the scope of the project and to discuss your goals, wants, needs, and design ideas. Based on this, we will prepare a few layout options for you to choose from. Once you have chosen a layout that best suits your needs, we will create a set of preliminary drawings. You will once again have a chance to see and revise the design if necessary. Once the design has been confirmed and approved, a final set of drawings will be created.
