When is the Best Time of Year to Build a Custom Home?

As Canadians, we are used to the snow. And depending on where you live, you expect the snow to come around mid-October. In western Canada, we are lucky to have a spring and even luckier to have an actual fall season!

Depending on where you live, the best time to build can differ. Knowing that the weather in western Canada is never predictable and we get snow almost seven months of the year, when is the best time for you to start building your custom home?

Best Time to Build

The best time to begin building your custom dream home is during the spring or summer. The weather is typically warm, and the days longer; therefore, your house's construction gets done quickly.

If you start in the spring, you can get the foundation, framing, and exterior of the home done before it gets too hot. Then, by the time summer and its accompanying heat comes around, the interior of your home can start to be worked on. If all goes well and the building stays on schedule, you could have a finished home by fall or winter. 

Ready for you and your family to sip hot chocolate by the fire or the Shaw Yule Log! 

What to do During Fall/Winter

If you know that you want the construction of your custom home to start in the spring or summer, it is a good idea to use the fall and winter months to research and plan. Take the time to find a plot that works for what you and your family needs, finalize floor plans, and if you are at the very beginning stage, find a home building company that has a proven track record and friendly representatives!

Planning and building a custom dream home takes time, so do your research so that when it comes time to build, you know what the potential obstacles could be!

Our New Reserve Program

From business owners to career professionals to homebuyers, 2020 has been a strange and tumultuous year. 

Even we were not immune to the effects of the pandemic. Homes had to go on hold, lumber prices rose, and new homes' planning went on hiatus; while things have gone back to as normal as possible (homes are being built, interest rates are lower, etc.), the future is still uncertain.

That is why we are so excited to introduce some exciting news! 

Lindal Homes and Fine Point Cedar Homes are offering a new Reserve Program for 2021.

So, what is the Reserve Program?

Our Reserve Program will allow you peace of mind in your home building journey, in that your Lindal home costs are locked in. 

There will be no surprises or fees from left field.

How Does it Work?

A minimum down payment guarantees today's pricing for delivery until September 30th, 2021! 

What's more, we are currently the only supplier of homes that is doing this!

What Does That Look Like?

The way we do it is to break the Purchase and Sales Agreement (PSA) deposit into two equal deposits spread out over the design and drafting process. You won't need to come up with the money all at once! And with the lower interest rates, there has never been a better time to build a home.

1) 1st Half of the full PSA deposit now, 2nd half PSA Deposit due at sign-off of preliminary plans.

2) This will allow price protection for up to one year after PSA. The price is good for 30-60 days after the Design Service Agreement (DSA) or regular price date.

3) The closing date is November 30th, 2020.

There is also an early bird bonus! You will receive a FREE large door upgrade if your PSA is received before October 31st!

If you are looking for a quality home and building experience with guaranteed pricing, and lifetime warranties that are not found anywhere in the industry, then you have come to the right place. Doug and Barb provide all that and red carpet service!

Check out our customer reviews and photo of the house built by Doug and Barb. This will help you envision what your dream home could look like and hear from others what it was like to build with them and work with them.

Doug and Barb would love to chat once you have secured your lot. Once that is done, they can walk and tour the site with you and help you envision what can be built on your plot!

Don't miss out on the fantastic chance to lock in the price of your home. We may not know what the future will hold, but you will always need a comfortable and cozy space for you and your family!
