The cost of a custom home is expressed in “price per square foot” variables. For instance, a 1,500 square foot home at the rate of $300 per square foot would result in a total of $450,000. This sum includes items such as building permits and architectural fees, but it does not include land. The “price per square foot” in the GTA ranges from $200 to $400, averaging at approximately $250.
While these costs may seem intimidating, you can rest assured that our experts will work closely with you on reducing costs as much as possible. It may even be the simple question of substituting unconventional materials or paint colors for alternative options that could save you thousands of dollars.
Yes – a custom built home will typically cost 20 to 30 percent higher than purchasing either a new home from a builder or an older home in your neighbourhood. However, this “premium” allows you to have exactly what you want, from custom fixtures to accessibility features and everything in-between. Because every element is brand new, a custom built home will ultimately be valued higher due to its superior energy efficiency and enhanced curb appeal.
New home construction can take from several months to a year, depending a number of factors: The size of the home, how intricate the custom features are, the location, and the time of year. The planning phase alone often takes months, as it requires ongoing discussion with you as the homeowner regarding your needs, preferences and available options, as well as inspections, acquiring relevant permits and much more.
Yes – in fact, an inspection is one of the most important aspects of the entire project. During the initial planning process, a detailed inspection performed by our in-house professional will help determine the budget based on the project’s individual characteristics and allow us to move on to the design and construction phases.
Once the building phase has begun, an inspector serves as a guide for a smooth construction process, pointing out any deficiencies that require immediate attention. Although we guarantee unsurpassed workmanship and overall customer service, there is always the small margin of human error that must be accounted for to ensure a perfect end result.
A new home construction contact, commonly known as the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, is a legally binding agreement that includes all of the elements that had been discussed throughout the initial planning process. This contract will typically include descriptions of,
