Today's answers to tomorrow's questions

We know that you probably have a lot of questions, after all building a home is a big deal. So, we’ve compiled a list of the most common questions our customers ask us.

Take a little time to browse through the Q and A’s, you might just find the answer you are looking for.

How long does a home take to complete building from scratch?

Typically between 8-10 months.

What communities do you build in?

Currently we are building in Creekwood Chappelle in Southwest Edmonton and Southfort in Fort Saskatchewan.

How much do I need for a down payment?

A down payment of 5% is required upon acceptance of your offer.

Can I make changes to the plans?

Changes and revisions can be made during the design process; however, all the decisions are made prior to construction with our design team to avoid confusion among trades and our superintendents. We work with you when making decisions because we understand that building a new home can be a very stressful time for you, we like to make it as stress free as we can possibly can.

Do you build spec homes or have quick possessions?

Yes we build wonderful spec homes and those are available through different times of the year. Inquire for more details on spec homes!

Can I make my own interior selections?

On all pre-sale homes you meet with our interior designer (InHouse studio) for a 3 hour design meeting where you will select your kitchen cabinets, flooring, paint colors, backsplash, and many other interior options to choose from. Depending on the stage of construction on a spec home, we might have time to make some changes to interior selections. It varies by stage of the home under construction.

What can I expect during construction/Buying?

A new home is a unique experience in that it is one of the few things that we, as consumers, can watch being built in front of our eyes. For example, we never watch an automobile or appliance get constructed. You can expect many things during the construction process. At times it will appear that construction progress is fast, and yet at other times it may appear to be slow. There will be times when the house and lot are neat and tidy and other times when it is messy. All of this is normal in the new home construction process.
