Our Approach

Our approach to building a custom home is rather simple: create a beautiful home that functions as well as looks. In order to achieve this – in addition to having your input alongside that of our expert team – we follow a series of steps:

  • Consultation – Every custom home development project begins with a consultation. This is a space for us to better understand your needs and desires, and to articulate how we plan on creating the home of your dreams. Regardless of project size or budget, this is a critical step for us to ensure that we’re prepared to build the custom home of your dreams.
  • Design Development – With the ideas laid out, we begin to piece together the various design elements necessary, from architectural drawings to interior finishes and beyond.
  • Design Planning – This final phase of the design process will ensure that we’ve checked all boxes and are prepared to build a home you’ll love. You’ll be involved in the assessment and review at each stage of the design process.
  • Construction – Once you’ve reviewed the design plans, we’ll break ground on your forever home. This will include the handling of all necessary documentation, registration, and legal filings.
  • Completion – After the work is finished, we’ll welcome you warmly to your new, custom-built home. Perfectly crafted for your family to love for the years ahead.

FAQs

How long does it take to build a custom home?

There is no length of time that universally applies to every custom home building project because no two custom homes are built the same. Every project is uniquely tailored to each individual’s vision and there are a number of factors that affect the time of work. For example:
 
– Lot location 
– Is the lot clear or are we tearing down a previously built house?  
– The size of the home 
– Materials 

Generally speaking, a custom-built home will take roughly 1 year to complete. The timeline breaks down as so: 

Financing, Choosing, and Purchasing Land: Less than 1 month
Designs and Architectural Plans: 1-2 months
Permits and Approvals: 1-2 months
Construction: 4-8 months

What time of year should I build a custom home?

The process of custom home building can begin at any time of year. Many homeowners are reluctant to start in winter because snow and cold weather can limit some areas of construction. However, this is often the best time to work on the design and it is faster to get permit approvals. In fact, plenty of custom home builders aim for planning and approvals to take place over the winter, so that they can begin construction in the spring.

What should I ask a potential custom home builder?

Before beginning the custom home building process, we advise homeowners to prepare a list of questions to ask a potential custom home builder. Questions such as: 

– How many years have you been custom home building? 
– Are you licensed and insured?
– Roughly how long will my custom home take to be built to completion?
– How will you determine the final price of my home? What is included, and not included, in the quote?
– What do you offer that other builders do not?
– What type of warranty do you offer?

The point here is to get a better idea of whether or not the home builder is a good fit whose team aligns with your vision.

Who can I call if I have a question during my build?

If you have a question before, during, or after your custom build, you can call your dedicated project manager. He or she is available to answer any comments, questions, or concerns you may have at any point.

Do I need to hire an architect or plan designer before the custom home build process?

All our custom home build projects include architects, designers, contractors, and all other support members. You do not need to hire any outside tradesmen on your own accord.

How do we confirm our land is custom home buildable?

By obtaining a building permit, you are confirming your land allows a custom home to be built. In any case, we are here to help you from start to finish, which includes finding the right location that is suitable for your new home. If you need any assistance determining whether or not the lot is buildable and/or if it has any pitfalls or problems, we are here to help. Let a professional at Aria Build do a free lot inspection for you.

What is the process of building a custom home?

The construction phase may only commence once the land has been acquired to build on, architectural plans have been drawn and outlined, and all the necessary permits and approvals have been secured for construction. Our process of building a custom home is organized in a four-step overview: 

Step 1 – Financing, Choosing and Purchasing Land
Step 2 – Designs and Architectural Plans
Step 3 – Permits and Approvals
Step 4 – Construction

In our first meeting together, we work with you to understand your dream home and vision. After the initial consolation, the next step is to look for the ideal lot. Once we understand what the scope of work is, we can provide an estimated cost based on factors such as labour, materials, etc. If the estimate is agreed upon, we move on to the architectural and design stages with our team. After all permits and approvals have been obtained, we proceed to the construction phase until the project is complete. Lastly, we clean up before delivering your brand-new home.

How much does it cost of building a custom home?

The custom build home cost varies depending on many factors such as the number of floors, type of architecture, interior and exterior features, and overall size among others. After our free consultation, we will determine a price based on square footage. We will work with you to get the most accurate cost estimate for your new home build and ultimately build the best home that stays within your budget.

Can we make changes during the custom home-building process?

Yes, you can make changes during the custom home-building process. We provide walkthroughs throughout the building process so you can see your project take shape and visually see how your home looks. In many scenarios, an aspect of the house looks different in 3D than what you saw on paper thus, changes need to be made.
