Building Your Home, Articles

Step 6 (1)


In Step 1 and 2 we had a conversation about your Dream Home and together prepared a detailed Design and Layout, then added options with your Personal Style and Colors. In Step 3 and 4 we got on our Boots, walked your Lot and set the first stakes in the ground. Then Construction of the Foundation began under the watchful eye of our Site Manager. In Step 5. You completed a factory tour to see Your Home built indoors.

Now in Step 6 your Home gets delivered.  It’s Party Time!  Set up the lawn chairs and BBQ, this is the big event.  In the morning you have a foundation on your lot.  In the evening you have a home.

First things first.  Coffee ready?

Family and neighbors are here for a show and will be staying a while.  First the sound of the Trucks with your PreFab house pieces, all shrink wrapped, rolling down your street.  Then the rumble of the large crane which will lift the PreFab modules onto the foundation. Our Pro delivery crews then set up shop for the day.  The crane finds the best spot for the lift, puts out the safety legs and scopes out any trees or wires.  The first PreFab house module is backed towards the crane and the lifting bars and hoisting straps are wrapped around the house.


Wait, you want a peek inside first?  I would.  So we peel back the plastic.  The kitchen and flooring are installed and the walls are already painted.  My goodness, the light switches, sinks and tubs look almost ready to use.  Ok stop holding up the crew.  Time for business. The crane operator takes his signal from our Site Manager and starts the lift.  Slowly and steadily into the air the house module goes.  And just as slowly and steadily it sets the house piece down on the foundation as smoothly as putting down a pillow.  An 11 ton pillow!

The remaining Prefab modules are set in quick succession.  Our crew does not stop to take breaks for lunch until your home is fully set.  Now it is time to walk through the entire home.  Just try and keep the rest of your guests out.  Impossible!

You have waited patiently for your Dream Home and it’s finally here.  Congratulations!

The final site work on your home now begins and it is just weeks before move-in.  Our Site Manager will be updating you on the progress of the work on a daily basis.We want you to have a New Home that you will Love.

This has been a great experience for us to date.Greg & Sherrie

  • 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.

    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.
