That Room is Perfect

Design Tips

One of the most challenging aspects of designing your custom home is to imagine how each space is going to be used. That’s one of the main reasons families love the open concept homes – it makes it possible for one space to perform multiple functions.

When I asked the Royal Homes Design Team what people are looking for when they visit our modern homes, they always tell me that both women and men imagine their home with people in it – family, friends, newindsor-diningareaghbours.windsor_family For many families, the space to entertain is really important when they are designing their dream home.

One of the Royal Homes’ plans that I really like is the Windsor. While the home is a moderate 1800 square feet, it maximizes the possibilities for parties. With an open concept living room and dining room, there is room for a lot of creativity. Whether you are hosting a holiday meal for close friends or an open house, the rooms are perfect.

For more casual entertaining, the open concept family room, kitchen and family dining space gives easy access to the outdoors and many unique corners for conversation. Too often someone gets locked in the kitchen, but in the Windsor, the kitchen is in the centre of the home. Friends and family can gather around to help – or just to chat.

The other thing I like about the design of the home is that there is a distinct separation between the family spaces and bedrooms. This is ideal for young families. In fact, because every home Royal Homes builds is unique, you can add some unique features, like a pocket door separating the bedroom area from the living space while maintaining access to the main bathroom.windsor_kitchen

The Windsor invites you to imagine beyond the original floor plan. You can do so many things and still retain the foundational advantages the plan offers – that’s why custom building your home is a great way to go.

  • 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.

    Yes, clients are given preliminary plans to review and changes are welcome and easily accommodated.
