Our Custom Home Build Process

Holmes Approved Homes Custom Home Builder

In 2020, Omega Homes had the honour of being included in the Holmes Approved Homes Program. The Holmes Approved Homes program was created by Mike Holmes–a trusted and celebrated Canadian builder and contractor–to provide Canadian homebuyers with a house that’s built right the first time. Builders that are a part of the program are committed to Make It Right® and building a home with trust and integrity.

To be certified in the Holmes Approved Homes Program, all of our homes must go through an on-site inspection including on-site field reports by Holmes-approved inspectors. The Holmes team will review the build at least three times during various stages of construction. After the build is complete, homeowners will receive a certification binder and an inspection certificate which is documented proof that the home is energy-efficient, durable, and built to the highest standards. 

It was a natural progression that Omega Homes would join the Holmes Approved Homes Program because our values have always aligned with Mike Holmes when it comes to providing our customers with high-quality builds, as well as a transparent building process full of creativity, idea sharing, and making dreams a reality.

Costs To Build A Custom Home In Ottawa 

While not every custom home costs the same to build, there are certain factors that can help us project the cost of the project. Primarily, you can rest assured knowing that we work to give you the most accurate price and time allotment possible when we hold our initial consultation, and we strive to respect both your time and your budget. 

Secondarily, there are two main factors that will influence the cost of your custom home build:

The Lot 

When building a custom home, the price of the lot that the home sits on will be a significant portion of the cost. Sometimes, our customers will have already purchased a lot and they have a separate budget for building the home. Other times, we work with clients with an all-in budget for both the lot and the home together. 
On top of the initial cost of the land for your custom home, there are also a few extra factors to consider, including the demolition of any existing structures, clearing of trees and other natural obstacles, as well as potential by-law variance applications to the city.

Home Size & Design

The general rule when building a custom home is the more square footage allotted to the project, the more expensive the build is going to be. For example, if you take two custom homes that are both equipped with the same amenities, but one is a 2,000 square foot home, and the other a 3,000, the 3,000 square foot home will cost more. However, there are several other factors that could potentially affect the price of your home without you even realizing it:
  • Bungalow plans are traditionally more expensive than 2-story homes because they require more foundation and walls for roughly the same square footage.
  • Creative design choices like angles and curves are more expensive to build than square corners and straight walls.
  • The structure needed to create wide-open spaces or vaulted ceilings can be costly due to the materials and labour needed to build safely.

Choosing The Right Lot For Your Custom Home

If you’re thinking about building a custom home in Ottawa, but aren’t sure where to start when it comes to buying land, Omega Homes can help with that. There are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to finding the right development or community to suit you and your family’s needs.

What to Look For In a Custom Home Builder

Building a new house is a significant financial investment and you need to ensure that you’re partnering with a reputable home builder. When choosing a builder, make sure they are a full-service, licensed company with a solid reputation for building in your area.

There are countless steps required to build a custom home. From purchasing a vacant lot or demolishing an existing structure on an infill property, to applying for the right permits and choosing finishing details. Your custom home builder should be able to help with every step of the process and answer any and all of your questions.

It’s also important that the custom home builder you’re considering working with is licensed. All Ontario custom home builders must be registered with Tarion to build and sell homes legally in Ontario. When researching builders, make sure you ask if they are registered and in good standing, with Tarion.

You also want to look at the homes the builder has completed in the past. They should be able to provide a portfolio or schedule a tour if they’re working on—or have recently completed—a build. Omega Homes has built numerous custom homes in and around Ottawa and has earned a reputation for high-quality service. We help our clients through every step of the custom home process, from viewing land to picking out final finishes.
