Building a Custom Home on your Own Land in Carp
It’s not uncommon for prospective home-buyers to fall in love with a city, area, or municipality, but not any houses are up for sale in that area. Sometimes, you can find yourself wanting the best of both worlds: to live in your dream home in your dream neighbourhood. If you’re interested in living in Carp and enjoying all it has to offer but can’t find that perfect house for sale, take it into your own hands by purchasing an empty lot and building the custom home of your dreams.
While there are several factors to consider when finding the right plot of land for your custom home in Carp–including budgeting, obtaining the necessary permits, and potential demolition–when you choose to work with the right contractor like Omega Homes, you’ll find yourself in your dream home and your dream neighbourhood in no time.
The Cost of Building a Custom Home in Carp
When it comes to building your dream home in Carp, there are several factors that will influence your overall costs. To provide an accurate estimate, we need to discuss whether you’ve purchased a lot or are still looking, total square footage of the home and a number of other decisions regarding design, finishes and outdoor spaces.
When building a home, the lot will make up a big part of the overall cost. Sometimes, our clients have already purchased a lot and have a separate budget for building the house. Other times, we work with clients that have an all-in budget for both the lot and home.
Apart from the price to purchase the lot, it’s also worth mentioning there are other lot factors to consider that could significantly affect the overall price:
- If it’s an infill property (there’s an existing structure on the property), costs for demolition will need to be included.
- Densely wooded lots might need to be cleared prior to building and you might be required to replant them once the project has finished.
- Depending on the lot, you might need to apply for a bylaw variance to build your dream home, which can add administrative costs.
