Six modules delivered in single day! A great start to 2022!

Latest builds

A gentle snow fell on a crisp Bayfield morning on Lake Huron, just a few days into 2022. It was cold but calm.
Our crew could feel the minus-10 C chill right through the fingers of their work gloves.
But by day’s end – with six prefab modules crane-lifted perfectly into place on a full foundation – the clouds disappeared. A glorious winter sunset spread across Lake Huron.
“Definitely a beautiful day for January,” our site supervisor Andrew said.
A beautiful day to set a beautiful custom lake-front home for our clients, who couldn’t be there but were wowed by the efficient progress they watched on video. Family members stopped by to take some photos and marvel at our set crew’s incredible work.

In the dead of winter, four prefab modules in one day can be a crane-full.
Getting a six-module home with a steel roof set by 5 p.m. a few days into daylight-deprived January is a remarkable feat of skill, organization and know-how.
“Our set crew did a fantastic job getting this custom home delivered in one day,” Andrew said.
The narrow lake-front lot made lifting the modules a challenge for the crane. Each module had to be raised above trees and tall bushes to be set on the foundation.
“This was a very small lot to build on,” said Chris, a designer at our Wingham Design Centre, who collaborated with the clients on the Bayfield dream home project on the shore of Lake Huron.

“The clients and I worked with the site plan and building envelope they sent me, to fit the design.”
The 2,700-square-foot home is two full storeys with an unfinished loft in the roof units. That’s three levels of 900 square feet, not including the basement.
The first prefab modules arrived on our custom-designed trailers, driven from our Wingham factory, around 9 a.m. The roof modules were set by 5 p.m.
The crane packed up shortly after that.
“It was an incredible day on Lake Huron,” Andrew said.

  • 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.
