There is not much better than the feeling of living in a brand new house that was built to your specifications and design. The typical process for a new custom home whether it be a site-built home or an RTM home is very similar. It all begins with the design and drafting of the new house. Greystone helps clients throughout the design phase which is the development of the drawings and specifications for your new home. We listen and help to develop a set of drawings that turns your dream into a reality!
Each client comes to us at varying times in their journey through the design phase. Some come with just the idea and a dream of a new house. Others come with a complete floorplan and modified to meet their desires. Most clients lie somewhere in between. Wherever they are on their journey, we encourage clients to send us pictures and ideas of what they do and do not want for their new home. We also, encourage clients to take as much time as necessary working on the design of the house because in our experience it is important not to rush this part of the new home construction. Greystone has the experience and the expertise to supplement the clients ideas while always ensuring that the final result will be structurally sound, meet all building codes, and be highly functional.
Once our client is happy and given their stamp of approval for the new home plans/design it is time to complete the construction contract and collect the deposit. After the construction agreement and deposit has been collected it is time to start the actual construction of house. This is an exciting time and is perhaps the most demanding time for decision making from the client. Large decisions about selections of flooring, cabinetry, windows and others are made at this time so that all these items can ordered/manufactured and ready for installation when needed. Clients can choose to use a Greystone interior designer to help them with the selection process (strongly recommended) or choose to make the selections on their own around finishings and colour palate. Over all clients find that using an interior designer to a greater or lesser extent extremely valuable but not all clients find it necessary. During the construction process clients are encouraged to be as involved as they like. Asking questions is an important part to any relationship and particular one between a home builder and a client.
After the house has been completed and ready for the client to take possession we walk-through the house and identify any areas of concern or potential defects that will need attention. These items are recorded and corrected. After the client has approved the house it is ready for possession. After all the work and effort the house is now a home and the clients’ dreams have become a reality. The work is not over for Greystone as we provide full warranty and complete another round of touch ups for our clients after they have lived and used the house for one full year.
