Better Way to Build

Better Way to Build

Royal Homes is a leader in the prefabricated building industry. Throughout its 46 years in business, Royal Homes has been refining its construction process to produce the highest quality homes in the most efficient way possible. This white paper details this process from start to finish.

Royal Homes builds custom homes for clients across Canada. Rather than build on-site, the construction process takes place almost entirely within an 110,000 ft2 manufacturing facility located in Wingham, Ontario. Royal Homes then transports the house in sections and assembles it on-site.

There are many benefits to building homes in a factory.

The process eliminates variables that impact traditional construction projects, like the weather and conditions on-site, making for a faster build that stays on budget. Each house is subject to a 250-point CSA-approved inspection system to ensure a consistent build quality. The indoor environment eliminates many of the potential hazards to workers found on a construction site. The process is also sustainable, minimizing waste and environmental impacts like air emissions, land disturbance, and water pollution.

Each step of the Royal Homes Building process is optimized to ensure precision, efficiency, and durability. The home is split into two four-sided modules for ease of transportation. Workers build each module on a rolling jig that moves from one building bay to the next once each step is complete. The home must pass an inspection checklist at each bay before it can advance to the next stage.

This white paper demonstrates how this process allows Royal Homes to complete the factory build in under two weeks. It goes through the build step-by-step, from laying the floorboards to raising the walls, constructing the roof, and preparing the house for transportation. The final product stands as proof that factory construction is a better way to build custom homes.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.
