A Home for Everyone

Planning Your Lot & Home


Are you looking at homes but not quite sure what style or type of home may work best for you? From cottage-style to modern homes and from bungalows to two-storey homes, there are many options that may work, but what is the best fit? Let’s explore some types of people that may be looking to purchase a new home and what could be a great fit for them:

Younger Adults, Minimalists

For any young adults out there, modern homes are a popular and well-suited option for you.

As you’re looking at homes, you may want to find a house that matches your sleek and contemporary style, while not breaking the bank. We believe that not only the wealthy should be able to afford a home designed with flair and skill by a great architect. There are modern home options that are great at combining both cost efficiency with a youthful style that is perfect for the younger demographic.

Making the effort to live a minimalist lifestyle? Modern style homes are perfect for you. A range of sizes can work as you may choose to buy smaller for saving money and space. You can also purchase a larger home if you intend to live in the home long-term and grow into the space. While size may differ, the sleek and clean look of modern homes promote a clutter-free lifestyle.

Are you a minimalist millennial? Double-whammy – modern homes may just be the perfect choice for you!

Retirees, Empty Nesters

As retirees are aging, there’s one main issue is your standard home – stairs.

Stairs can bring a burden to your knees and body, which isn’t ideal for the place you come to relax. This makes bungalows an excellent option and the main floor is built out, so everything is on one level, eliminating stairs as a daily issue. You can even customize your bungalow to feel like your dream lake house cottage retirement.

A bungalow would also be a great option to consider for empty nesters out there, as their space requirements have changed.

If it’s just yourself or you and a partner – maybe some furry friends too – you can downsize your home but make it feel much larger than before. Your floorplan is all on one level, so although your square footage may have decreased, bungalows don’t make it feel like it has.

Families

If your house is full of children, a two-story home may be the best option for you. It fulfils the space requirement you need by having a level with only bedrooms to allow enough personal space for every family member.

Aside from the space requirements with a family, two-storey homes have an added bonus by allowing parents to have their bedroom on a separate floor than the children. This is a large factor in why two-storey homes are perfect for families, so parents out there can have their adult space – or floor- to enjoy their home.

Since every person and their interests are unique, their best fit will differ. If you have an idea of the style you like but want to explore different styles that will peak your interest, visit us for some inspiration.

The passion and attention to detail that the Royal Homes team has is incredible. Their pre-fab homes and cottages and have never been anything short of stunning and top quality. I would recommend this company in an instant, without a shadow of a doubt.Jessica

  • 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.

    What is your average square foot selling price?

    Prices for a complete home, including foundation vary from $200 sq-ft to over $300 because our homes are all custom built, we can design a home to fit your budget.

    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.

    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.
