The Royal Advantage – “The Foundation”, Step 4 of the 9 Steps to a Home You’ll Love

In Step 1 and 2 we had a conversation about your Dream Home and together prepared a detailed Design and Layout, then added options with your Personal Style and Colors.

In Step 3 we got on our Boots, walked your Lot and set the first stakes in the ground.

Now Step 4. Construction begins. We have your building permit and while you home is being built indoors in our factory you get to see the professionals and machines at work on your lot.

The Dig. We move in the heavy equipment and begin digging the hole in the ground. The excavated dirt or fill goes elsewhere on your site for reuse or is trucked away. Down we go making sure we dig just far enough so that the “Top” of your Foundation is at the correct height.

This is where you look at this large hole and try to picture your home standing proud. Most of us can’t believe the hole looks so big. It looks enormous because it is empty and is a few feet wider then the plans to have room to work.

Our construction team and your building inspector look carefully at the soil and its bearing capacity. Every lot is different. Could be sand, clay, gravel a combination or even some water.


We have seen it all. If necessary, an outside engineer will come in to take a look and advise.

This is so critical.

We all know about the need for a firm foundation. But for your own home you want the assurance that it is constructed properly. The number one warranty issue for homes worldwide is the foundation. It has to be strong! It has to to keep the water out!

Next, the foundation footings are poured and the foundation wall forms are put in place for the concrete wall pour. Prior to the delivery of your home we wait until the concrete dries or cures to full strength.

We supervise the construction of each home foundation with our own Site Supervisors.

After building thousands we have the specs down.

The foundation has to be built right. We want you to have a New Home that you will Love.

Love our Royal Home. The house was as promised and on time June 2014. The interior and exterior were flawless. The workers are pleasant and have an excellent work ethic. Any small problems have been fixed without any issues. Unlike many builders. The detail in the house is as perfect as you will ever get. Thanks for an awesome home.Kenny

  • FAQ

    Where can I get a price list or How come your website doesn’t show pricing?

    Prices vary geographically, depending on where you are building. With the amount of options available, price lists run into thousands of options. Prices change with the options you choose. The best way to get an idea on pricing would be to contact our Design Centre nearest to where you are building.

    What is your average square foot selling price?

    Prices for a complete home, including foundation vary from $200 sq-ft to over $300 because our homes are all custom built, we can design a home to fit your budget.

    Why should I buy from you over a conventional or "Stick-Builder"?

    The advantages of prefab include building in a climate controlled environment, using environmentally friendly products which reduces waste and a CSA monitored quality controlled program. There is less time start to finish, with less disruption to neighborhood. We also sell at a firm price.

    Do your homes include a foundation?

    Yes our homes include full foundation and basement.

    How long does it take to build a Royal Home?

    It takes less than two weeks to build a home in our factory, but the process from start to finish is very dependent on the timing of obtaining a building permit. For most of our clients the process from start to delivery is twelve to sixteen weeks with move in eight to twelve weeks thereafter.

    What size homes do you build?

    As a custom builder we can build any size home but generally the average size range is between 1300 and 3500 sq feet.

    Do you build garages?

    Yes. Garages are built on site after the home is delivered.

    Are the homes energy efficient?

    Building a prefab home in a factory assures the highest attention to sealing the building envelope and ensures that the cold stays out.

    Since your homes are so energy efficient and air tight, how do you get fresh air?

    All our homes have HRV heat recovery ventilator air exchanger to remove stale air, and introduce fresh air.

    Where can I put a prefab home?

    Anywhere in Ontario you like.

    Can I really customize my prefab home?

    Yes, we use state of the art custom design software, today no two homes are built alike.

    Do you finish the basement?

    Yes. We can customize your basement to the finishes you desire.

    Are Royal Homes built to code?

    All Royal Homes are individually designed to meet all provincial and municipal building codes for your specific lot location.

    Do you build stick-built or conventional homes as well?

    We are a custom home builder first and use prefabricated components wherever we can, because it is a better way to build. If you have a remote site or custom home design with large open spaces we would look at what makes most sense for that design and location. This could include prebuilt panels or partially site built specific rooms.

    What makes the building process environmentally friendly?

    Waste in the factory is separated and recycled, reducing the impact on landfills. This has less disruption in terms of noise and time at job site. Building prefab allows for higher energy efficient homes and reduced heating costs.

    Our home is delivered by way of custom designed hydraulic flatbed trailers and precisely craned onto the foundation.

    Can you make changes or custom design?

    Yes, clients are given preliminary plans to review and changes are welcome and easily accommodated.
