Frequently Asked Questions

What considerations should I have in mind when purchasing land?

How construction-ready is the land? Is it cleared and graded? Are plumbing, electric and cable connected? Are a road and driveway installed? The more a lot is construction ready, the lower your construction costs will be.

How do I go about identifying a qualified contractor?

We can recommend contractors in the area, but there are also a number of tools available such as Sweeten. Be sure to vet several contractors carefully and ask for 3 references from each contractor.

Are your upgrade designs available to license?

Yes. Please contact us regarding which upgrades you would like to purchase. Cost can vary depending on the upgrade. Some items like the kitchen pantry, kitchen island and wood burning stove can be purchased directly.

Can the standard house design be modified?

Modifications can be made directly by you with your contractor, or by a professional you hire to make drawing modifications for you. Our team can be hired to make modifications for you on an hourly fee basis.

Do you offer any construction financing options?

We can connect you to lending partners in the area. However, a construction loan process is very similar to a mortgage process with 3rd party lending banks.

Will I need a local architect or engineer after purchasing a Design Licence?

An engineer is recommended to design your septic system or sewer connections. Your contractor or professionals you hire can secure building permits and approvals required by local municipalities.
