Updated: Jan 3, 2022
The idea of building a custom home brings a lot of excitement. It’s a dream come true for many who have longed for the opportunity to design their own home. As more and more people explore this option, there is a need to have adequate information to guide them with their decision.
We have complied 3 most important questions to ask before selecting your Home Builder Vancouver.
How much does it cost to build custom home and how will you ensure you stay on budget?
This is by far the most frequently asked question in our industry. There is an endless amount of factors that affect the overall pricing or budgeting for a custom home. Some examples are the features of the lot, lot location, home size, home design, types of interior and exterior finishes, building materials, and personal taste.
Added expenses are always a possibility as the project nears its completion. If you have a clear budget that you don’t wish to exceed, it’s fair to ask your custom home builder about their process to stay within that budget.

How long does it take to build a custom home?
Every custom home is different but anticipates that the process will take at least a year and a half from the initial meeting to getting your keys. For larger homes or complicated sites, the build may take as many as twenty-four months. A variety of factors come into play, including a meticulous design process (in which you will make decisions on each element of your home), permit acquisition, site development, and of course, the construction itself.

What time of year should I build a house?
Actually, there isn’t a perfect time to start. We can begin planning and submit permits any time of year–we bring heaters or fans or lights depending on the weather and work as long as conditions are safe. That said, there are seasons that don’t lend to ideal conditions for working outside such as during the winter months where everything grinds to a halt. However we are used to working in these conditions with minor exceptions for dumping snow or torrential downpours that might slow us down.
