Will building on my own help me to save money?
The truth is, building your home on your own will not allow you to see the types of savings you are hoping for. Many lenders often deter persons from building their own homes by having rules against lending to persons who are going to be building their first home by themselves. Building your home yourself can also be stressful with all the tasks necessary to get the permits and complying with the latest BC building code to get your construction off the ground. There are also legal implications to not ensuring that you are following BC Housing and respective city rules for building your home.

Do you have existing plans I can choose from if I don’t want a custom design and will this help me to save money?
We do have plans that you can choose from. However, you may not end up saving if you choose from a set plan. Basically, when you choose a stock home you may be paying for square footage that you don’t end up using because it doesn’t meet your needs. Whereas when you choose a custom plan you only pay for the space that you need, space that you will love and space that your family will enjoy.
So unless the stock homes meet all the needs of your family and have no additions that won’t be used by you then you are not going to see savings by choosing from a stock home design.
