5 Benefits of a Bungalow-Style Home

Living In Your Home


 

Are you looking for a new home? Trying to pick out the style of your future life? Have you ever considered living in a bungalow? Bungalow-style homes are increasing in their popularity every single day. Why? They have multiple benefits that suit a wide range of people and fit countless lifestyles. Here are five of the most significant benefits associated with bungalow-style homes

Open Design

Bungalow-style homes often feature an open concept. This brings additional natural light into the home, expanding an individual’s line of vision. With an effective layout, the airy and sunny nature of a bungalow-style home becomes a significant and beneficial feature for everyone living there. In addition, the expanded line of vision is especially helpful for parents who need to keep an eye on small children.

Accessibility

Since bungalow-style homes are only one level, their accessibility is great for those with limited mobility, seniors, and younger children (particularly when it comes to safety, so parents need not worry about children falling down stairs). It would be incredibly easy to have a ramp leading up to the front door, and without stairs inside, getting around the home is less of a concern. Additionally, the open concept of bungalow-style homes makes it easier for those using walkers or wheelchairs, as there is less risk of bumping into things.

Privacy

It is customary to build bungalow-style homes on large lots and they are either detached or semi-detached. These factors help to promote privacy for you and your family. You can use curtains on the windows, but also planting trees or other greenery around your property can increase the privacy you achieve. And with only one level, there is less to worry about and deal with in terms of maintaining that privacy.

Flexibility

Most bungalow-style homes offer flexibility for additions. Not only could you increase space on one level with more rooms, but if you wished to move to more than one level, there is also this possibility! Even if you do not need to make any additions, the layout and format of the home itself should still provide you with an increased level of flexibility in terms of choices for layout, what to use specific rooms for, et cetera.

Affordable Maintenance

Maintaining your bungalow-style home is quite affordable. Because of the layout and open concept, this style of home is actually quite modest in terms of heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. Furthermore, the open concept makes routine cleaning much more convenient. Should you decide to go ahead with renovations, you will also have more options.

This convenience and flexibility provide additional control over the process and associated expenses, which means you are increasingly able to reduce costs. With fewer choices, you would have to go with whatever is available.

  • 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.

    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.
