Aamjiwnaang First Nation (Sarnia) —

Gordie was busy making lunches for his girls, Zoe and Lexi, one March morning. That’s when he and Bev glanced outside their new custom Royal Home and saw a four-legged visitor. “Holy crap, there’s a deer right outside our door!” said Bev, recalling the couple’s surprise.

That was almost a year ago, when a friendly deer with a front leg that’s not quite right started showing up regularly at Bev and Gordie’s home. Lexi woke up to see the deer right outside her window.

“The girls just call him ‘Limpy’ because he’s got a gimpy foot,” Bev said. Limpy is a welcome guest at this lovely home where greetings in Ojibwe and Oneida — Aanii and Shekoli — meet all visitors to the front porch. One morning since, the girls were catching the bus out front when four deer gathered in the yard. The deer started running around in a circle on their street.

“It was pretty cool,” Bev said. Watching the deer from the big display window in the front of the home is a pleasure. Bev has gotten a lot of pleasure out of a window she wasn’t sure she wanted at first. “At first, everyone loved it but I did not love it,” Bev recalled. “Now, that’s where the Christmas decorations go. We have a pretty garland there. It’s nice to decorate that space.”

Most of Bev and Gordie’s attention so far has been focused on making the inside of their Royal Home as “homey” as can be for the girls. “Everyone that comes over is amazed at how much space there is,” Bev said.

A year later, the Royal Homes experience has been wonderful for Gordie, Bev and the girls. “Royal Homes is awesome,” Bev said. “We just want to rave about it as much as we can. Anyone who asks questions about it, we tell them to stop by the house. ‘Come see and we’ll help you with any questions, anything we didn’t think to do when we were building.’ You can get so overwhelmed because there are so many options.”



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.
