We can help you Find, Design and Build Your Dream Home Your Way!
Unless you already have a piece of property to build on ..finding a piece of property can be the most challenging part of the custom home building process. As you can imagine with the sky high property values and bidding wars that exist today finding a property that suits all your needs can be difficult.
Cresmark will work with you to find properties within your budget and neighbourhoods that fit your wish list. As Custom Home Builders we have access to many properties not listed on the market but also work with a number of local real estate agents so we have access to homes even before they hit the market. By working with Cresmark we can access the feasibility of the property for you to determine if there are any issues that will affect the construction of your Custom Home or Renovation before you buy. We will determine if the property is competitively priced and if it will fit into your overall budget for the project. No sense buying a piece of property and then you cannot afford to build your dream home on it or to try to renovate the existing home when it makes more sense to tear it down and build new?
We will determine the building envelope and the maximum size permitted for your new home based on the zoning requirements of the property.
If you decide you require a larger home than what is allowed on the property or the house design does not comply with the zoning for some reason than we may be required to apply for a Minor Variance with the city. This process is a bit more costly and can take up to 6 months to get approvals so it’s important to weigh the pros and cons! Again this is something that Cresmark will determine and take care of for you if required.
Once we finalize everything in regards to compliance with the zoning we can go ahead and finalize the Construction Drawings, Engineering and Interior Designs. Once drawings and engineering are complete Cresmark can apply for building permits and accurately Budget and Build your New home for you.
As you can imagine the entire design and build process takes time. It usually takes a year or more from start to finish so it’s important that you work with people you trust and that give you good advice and peace of mind that you are making the right decisions for your family.
We want you to Enjoy the process and your new home !
