9 Steps to Building – Step 2. Style & Selection

Planning Your Lot & Home, Articles



Style your home the way you want – hardwood floors, ceramic tiles, granite counters, oak cabinets, a stone fireplace. Our Design Centre lets you see and touch the colours, styles and options available for your walls, floors, cabinets, windows, lights, plumbing, brickwork and more.

STEP 2. Style & Selection

In Step 1 we had a conversation about your Dream Home and together prepared a detailed Design and Layout of your new custom home.  Drawings were prepared.  We reviewed the drawings and made the changes you wanted.

Now for Step 2, the Options. Adding your personal style and colors.

Royal Homes has thousands of options showcased on our website with more samples in our Design Centres.  But there is more, much more.  We can take you to our suppliers’ showrooms. We can surf the web.  If you have a favourite detail or option, just send it to us. See something in a store or on Pinterest? Send it to your Designer who will help get the specs and integrate that with your new home design.

We will go through your home on a room by room basis with a Color Choice and Option checklist.  We love the details and we love to write them down.  From cable outlets, to paint colour, to flooring type/color, to counter top edge profiles we have got it covered.  We will ask you questions that you never even thought of.

We recently built a family getaway for a Heart Surgeon who was impressed with the detail and how we document it. He said that we covered more questions and points then he would go through in prepping his patients for surgery.

Once we have all your style ideas and put them into the home design it is all double checked by our office.  Details on your new appliances are confirmed  to ensure that they all fit.

We really want to get it right for you.  We really want your new custom home to be like you pictured it, or better.  We want you to love your new home.



We love our house and wouldn't change a thing if we had to do it all over again.Cynthia

  • 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.
