Custom Home Building Process

When thinking about custom-built homes or even renovating an entire house, it can seem like an overwhelming process since most homeowners don’t know where to begin. When you work with a well-established renovation company like RCT, you can rest assured that you will have help with every step along the way. Custom home building can be broken down into 7 main steps:

The first step of the process is always an initial consultation to outline your objectives and visions for your new custom home. This is where we get an idea of what your dream house looks like. We will also discuss expectations, timeline, and potential start date.  


Since budget is such an important part of this process, it’s something we discuss right away. Knowing your budget gives our team a better understanding of what can be done for your custom home build. The last thing we want is to design a house outside of your budget. Our home building experts at Renovation Collective Toronto will give you examples of different levels of finishes with approximate pricing for each.


At Renovation Collective Toronto, we have a whole team of experts working to help turn your dream custom home into a reality. From engineers and architects to interior designers, we will help design the perfect custom home for you and your family. Based on your thoughts and budget, we will design the proposed floorplan and revise it as necessary, based on your input.


Once the concept is approved, the next step is attaining permits from the city of Toronto. Our architect and structural engineer will create drawings that we will use to get the permits. For larger projects like custom built homes, it’s not unusual for the city to require taking the drawings to committee of adjustment before the permits are issued. This is very common and something we will handle for you, if necessary.


Before construction commences, our Toronto custom home builders will outline an estimated timeline with specific construction markers to give you an idea of what will be completed and when. During the construction phase, you will be in constant communication with your project manager who will keep you up to date with the timeline and will keep you informed if anything out of the ordinary should arise.


Once your new custom home is complete, we make sure the entire home is cleaned from top to bottom to make it move-in ready. At this point, you can work with our interior designers to find furniture and decor that works best for the space. 


The final walk-through is where you and your construction manager walk through your new custom home for a final inspection to identify anything that requires additional touch-ups. Although many homeowners are eager to have the project completed, this is an important step that shouldn’t be missed.
