The construction begins! First, your new home’s foundation will be excavated. Foundation walls are erected and damp-proofed. Drain tiles are installed to drain ground moisture away from the house.
After some necessary paperwork, you will receive copies of the required documents and the keys to your new home. Congratulations, you are the new owner of a custom build home by Lavish Builders.
Shingles are installed onto the roof, and electrical and plumbing services are roughed in. Utilities such as water, electricity, telephone and cable will also be brought in at this time. A Inspection covering structural, electrical and plumbing occurs during this stage to ensure that everything is being completed in line with all necessary building codes and regulations.
Our experienced team will work with you to help find the perfect home plan for you! Once you've found the home that meets your lifestyle, your needs, and budget we can begin the process!

Building Your New Home
There is a lot going on in your home. The roof and exterior walls are insulated and a vapour barrier is applied, and an inspection occurs. The drywall is installed and finished. The heating systems, including a fireplace where applicable, are installed. And depending on weather/frost conditions, the basement floor will be poured.
Making It Pretty:
You’re now ready to write an agreement to purchase. Working closely with Lavish Builders, you will submit an offer to build a new home.
This contract will outline any conditions or limitations, and will outline any alterations you would like to make to the chosen floor plans to personalize your home. Upon acceptance of the agreement and removal of conditions, we are ready to move forward!
At this stage, exterior walls, interior partitions and the roof are constructed and assembled. Walls are built on the floor one at a time and lifted into place. Windows and doors are installed as well. It’s at this stage that your new home starts to look real.
