Types of Custom Homes
There are two types of custom home builds that we specialize in: new home builds and existing home rebuilds. While each option has its unique advantages and disadvantages, the decision ultimately comes down to your specific needs and preferences. With a new home build, everything is completely brand new, providing you with the opportunity to design and build your dream home from scratch. Starting from the ground up allows for complete creative control over the layout, features, and overall design of your home. Plus, you won’t have to worry about any existing structural or design limitations, making the customization options limitless. On the other hand, existing home rebuilds allow us to take advantage of the existing footprint of your home. While it may seem limiting at first, this approach has its advantages, particularly when working with older Toronto homes. By focusing on reusing as much of the existing structure as possible, we can keep costs down and preserve the unique character and charm of your home. Additionally, we can leverage any close proximity to property lines or other unique characteristics of your property. No matter which option you choose, we will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your custom home is everything you’ve ever wanted and more. Our experience with older homes in the Toronto East area has equipped us with the knowledge and skills to tackle any design or construction challenge that may arise.
New Home Build
This is the worry free option as you know that everything has been done at the sametime and is done with modern construction techniques and materials. Nothing has to be leveled, flattened or added to, as it is all done right the first time. The downside is that there are quite a few additional costs associated with a new build, such as development and new service fees to name a few. When you go with a new build custom home you have to take into account there will be extra costs involved to do so. Please review this option carefully before choosing to go in this direction as nine times out of ten if your home is located on a smaller lot in Toronto, this option is not ideal.
Existing Home Rebuild
An existing home rebuild is probably our most popular option as it gives virtually the same finished product but without all the headache that comes with a new build. As long as you can make 50% of the existing exterior walls work for the layout of your new custom home, this option makes a lot of sense. You don’t have to throw your old home in the dump which helps the environment by reducing construction waste. You don’t have to worry about any development or extra service fees, as renovations are treated differently by the city. You still end up with the same home of your dreams as the finished products look the same. The down side to this approach is that there can be a lot of work involved in making what you currently have into something that works with your dream home. Sometimes you existing home is too far gone or your new dream home requires too many changes to make this option as feasible one. Make sure to review the limitations of this option clearly during the design phase of your project.
