For people that have never built a custom home, the process can seem daunting. However, when you work with the right partner, it’s an extremely straightforward process. After building countless dream homes in and around the Ottawa area, we’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions about building a custom home.
Can you build on a lot that currently has a home?
Many times, people are under the assumption that they can only build a home on a vacant lot. While this is a popular route, you also have the ability to build on an infill property—a lot that already has a home or other structure on it. Learn more about building a custom home on an infill property.
What’s the process of building a custom home?
There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to building a custom home, but it can be distilled down to four main phases:
- Finding a lot to build on
- Designing the house
- Building and construction
- Inspections, move-in and after-service care

How much does it cost to build a custom home in Ottawa?
The most frequently asked questions we get revolve around cost. Unfortunately, we can’t provide an estimate without knowing where you want to build, if you already have a lot or are still looking, and what kind of amenities you want to include in your home.
