Planning Your Lot & Home

I have to tell you – I’m not a big fan of doing laundry. Call me traditional or old-school, but I have always thought the laundry belonged in a dark corner in the basement.

And, as you may well expect, my wife tells me that I am just wrong. she showed me a laundry room that looked – well, pretty astounding. Built-in cabinets, 15 feet of counter space, french doors to the garden and an awesome sewing space.

If you take a look at the Citadel at the Wingham Design Centre, you will see that the home is designed with three laundry centres: the Master bedroom on the main floor, near the upstairs bedrooms and just off the kitchen. While that might be a little more extravagant that all families look for, the bottom line is that when you plan your laundry room, think about convenience and ease of use.Laundry-in-Ensuite

When you’re working with your Royal Homes’ Designer, share your preferences with them. While many homes now put the laundry into a utility closet close to the kitchen and bedroom (the Belmont) is the perfect design for this, others will prefer an actual “utility” room. The Shakespeare is a very clever design that includes a utility room off of the kitchen. While it does have easy access to the garage, it is not the first room you walk into. Families using The Shakespeare as their foundation model, can chose to include custom cabinetry in the laundry room, making the room very functional, including storage and laundry. The Milford has a great option for cottage living. The laundry is off of the main entrance, alongside a two-piece bathroom and closet. It’s a perfect place to toss wet beach towels when you come into the cottage!laundry

  • 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.
