Ontario’s Greater Golden Horseshoe is brimming with potential, and no place exemplifies the growth of this region quite like Peterborough. Not only is it home to some of the best parks and lakes Canada has to offer, but Peterborough has become a thriving economic hub with amenities for families both young and old. Building a custom home in Peterborough lets you live in the best of both worlds, with cottage country on one side and an up-and-coming metropolis on the other.

Living in Peterborough

Most people know Peterborough best as a summer retreat at the gateway to the Kawarthas. Adventurous travelers flock to the area for its iconic hiking and canoeing trails, and the cozy atmosphere makes the town a haven for retirees. But summer fun is far from the only thing living in Peterborough has to offer.

There is something for everyone in Peterborough’s diverse neighbourhoods. Those with active lifestyles can find everything they need within walking distance in the East City; nature-lovers relish the canopy of mature trees that stand watch over the Old West End. The Hospital and Kawartha Heights areas offer great schools and affordable family homes, while University Heights boasts an eclectic variety of beautiful upscale homes.

Property values in Peterborough have risen steadily in recent years, with the average home price sitting at $412,000 in 2018. That puts the prospect of building a home in Peterborough well within reach for many first-time buyers and couples looking to downsize in their retirement.

  • 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?

    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.
