Rust? Teal? Green?

Design Tips


I don’t want to scare you, but the number of decisions you will make in the span of just a few weeks is just a little daunting. Floors, bathroom fixtures, tiles, cabinets, exterior stones, brick or siding, lighting fixtures…. well, it just goes on from there.

I have to say, the design centre at Royal Homes really helped us out. First of all, it’s like a store! The number of options available is unbelievable. And, let me tell you, I really appreciated the fact that I could touch the carpet before purchasing it. Actually seeing the product before choosing it was a real help to us.

More than that, you can actually browse the design centre products online before you come in. That’s a great way to get a feel for the products available, the colours and quality. Our design staff suggested that we start by choosing a few of the products online and then coming in to see them in person. That was a great way to start. Because Royal Homes’ website includes such a vast array of products, you will be well prepared. I also really like that Royal Homes showed more than the product, they also included images of the product in a home. It was a great way to get a feel for how the product would look in a home setting.

Royal Homes design team is very good at what they do.

Here are some of the things that helped us.

First of all, Royal Homes model homes are extremely well designed. The colour choices and finishing touches are all chosen by an interior designer. Secondly, like I said, the design centre carries a large selection of products that you can choose, making the process much easier. Because it’s all in one place, you can match colours and see how they will flow together in your home. Thirdly, and we really leaned on this, the design team is well prepared to guide you through the process.

Finally, the design team has an exhaustive check list to make sure everything moves smoothly. As we went through the process… step by step… we were so grateful for the design centre team who walked with us.

An overall positive experience with very few hassles.Eric

  • 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.

    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 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.
