Our team of architects will work with you to design a home that is modern and functional, while still remaining true to your personal style.
When it comes to building your dream home, there’s no shortage of options: from traditional bricks-and-mortar homes, to modern “smart homes” that use cutting-edge technology to make life easier.
Not sure where to start? From classic bungalows, to smart homes, to farmhouse chic, to modern townhomes and more, we’ll help you design and build a home that you’ll never want to leave.
Expert Home Additions
Need more space? We know what it’s like to love the home we’re in, but sometimes, to make it just right, we need a little more room as our families grow or circumstances change. Adding a home addition is the perfect way to create that extra room, without the need to move or relocate. We offer a full range of additions, including a second-story add-on, new office space, in-law or nanny suite, great room or family room, workshop or mudroom. We’ll help you make the most out of every square foot in your home, and help you add on what you’re missing.
How We Ensure a Successful Project
Step 1: Consultation
We start every project with an in-depth project review so that we can put together a comprehensive, individualized plan. In this meeting, we discuss your vision, goals, expectations, project timeline and budget. Here, you can provide us with your overall wishlist and prioritize the items as “must-haves” or “nice-to-haves”. From here, we activate the project development agreement and begin the design drawings.
Step 2: Assign a Design Team
In this phase, we create and confirm your vision. Based on your project scope and requirements, we will assign you a dedicated design team to your project. You will also be assigned a project coordinator who will guide you through the project. At this stage, we determine appropriate zoning requirements and restrictions as well.
Step 3: Drawing Review
Here, we share design ideas and review your project’s preliminary drawings. We receive feedback and approval from the client, and work with you on desired changes to the overall design. 3D drawing can be provided if desired. We also take this time to discuss the budget and provide a rough project quote.
Step 4: Establish Project Details
Next, we start costing with key trade partners, finalize drawings, material selection, and the general budget. You can choose to join us for material selection or have us bring samples to you. We then conduct a home walkthrough and plan review. We also discuss areas for potential unforeseen problems and develop contingency plans as-needed.
Step 5: Building Phase and Milestones
During the course of the building and construction phase, we set up regular contact and weekly communication meetings, and set up a dedicated chat for progress updates, client questions and decision resolution. We also discuss the steps we’re taking to meet your budget, work quality and schedule.
Step 6: Home Sweet Home!
The moment you’ve been waiting for! In this final phase of the project, we do our final walkthrough and reveal, and explain how everything works, as needed. We follow this with a 30 day check in and one year check in, but in between those times, we’re always just a phone call away.

The most common type of foundation used for custom homes in Ontario is a concrete slab foundation, but other options include crawl spaces, basements, and piles. The type of foundation selected will depend on factors such as the soil type, climate, and the design of the home.
Yes, it is common to make changes to the design of a custom home during the build process. However, it is important to note that changes may affect the cost and timeline of the build, and it is best to discuss any changes with your builder or contractor in advance.
