The Royal Advantage – 9 Steps to Building


Royal Homes works with you from Design to Build to Warranty and Service. We have to be friends and get along since we will be seeing each other for a long time.


Step 1. Dream & Design


We partner with you from the beginning. Let’s engage in a conversation that will let you design your own custom home with our help. Come with your Pins, Houzz likes, design mag clippings and photos.

That’s how it all starts. You have been thinking and dreaming about a new home for years. Tell us and show us what you want, what is important for today and for your future. I mean right down to the pet washing station. You are uniquely different and so should your home be built for you. As we talk we can walk through professional decorated and designed models for your inspiration. You will be dealing directly with a designer. The goal is to take the talk, the sketches, the feelings and come up with an initial design plan that we can review and make sure we are going in the right direction.

Next, we meet again to take the initial plan, bend it, stretch it, fold it, cut and paste it to make it your plan. We are good at this. We will tell you what’s “in”, what’s “new”, what works and what does not.I mean how many times are you going to design your own home. Your going to love it.


I could not have built this home without Royal's help. I LOVE my new home.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.

    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.
