Royal Homes – News Update

For many years now, the housing crisis has continued to grow in Toronto. The Covid-19 pandemic has shed light on the challenges in Toronto’s housing market, such as the strain placed on the shelter system. As of late July, there were 636 Covid-19 cases linked to shelter outbreaks.

As an emergency response, the city has added 30 temporary sites in hotels and community centres, and expanded shelters to allow clients to maintain physical distancing. Although this is a step in the right direction, the best solution is to provide permanent housing.

The construction of modular supportive housing has proven to be a quick and cost-effective solution in comparison to traditional housing. Modular homes are prefabricated in a factory then assembled on-site.

Toronto city council recently approved a plan to build 250 modular homes as a rapid response to homelessness and to reduce pressure on the shelter system. These homes will serve as permanent and affordable solutions for people currently experiencing homelessness.

The city strives to reach their target of constructing 1,000 modular homes by 2030.

The pandemic has certainly created many challenges, and it has also allowed us to realize we can accomplish great things in a short matter of time. Looking to the future, Toronto is becoming a stronger and more resilient city as it works to tackle issues such as homelessness.

I really liked the fact that after I had made my choices, everything went smoothly. The building process was hassle-free. I did not have to worry about delays, weather or missing pieces.Mai-Liis

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    How is your home delivered?

    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.
