If you’re thinking about investing in a new home, one of the first decisions you’ll have to make will be whether you want to purchase a pre-existing home or build one to suit the needs of you and your family. Although selecting a pre-built home may be easier in some ways, you may end up spending a huge amount of time dealing with the aspects of your new purchase that don’t work for you. This is one of the reasons why building a new home may be worth your while. Listed are some more benefits of building a new place.

Design the house that fits you, your family, and your future

Buying a forever home involves learning what you want in life. What are your priorities, and how will your home reflect them? Do you plan to entertain friends in a spectacular kitchen, or are you focused on space for your children to play and grow? Will open-concept make you feel freer? How will a single story vs. two-story house allow you to spread out the way you want to? Building a new home lets you to make every decision according to what suits you and your family best. Decide on the space, layout, and design needed to accomplish your goals.

Design and decorate in a way that speaks to you

Whether rustic, traditional, or modern, your home can reflect your exact tastes. If you need to relax, you can include a free-standing extra-deep soaker tub. You can further use your new washroom to fully customize your morning routine with body jets, a rain shower head, and the best organization to get your day started with ease. Your kitchen should also make you feel glad to be there, and KitchenCraft Cabinetry offers many options to make your cabinets unique. You can choose different materials from thermofoil to MDF to wood according to your design preference, lifestyle, and budget. As well, you can talk to Lyons paint experts to find the perfect paint palette. We have a variety of different colours from brands such as Pittsburg Paints and Sico to allow you to make each room reflect your family’s style. With a new home, it’s all up to you.

Build your home to be green

If the environment is your priority, it’s much easier to incorporate eco-friendly benefits into the initial design of your home than to add them later. Lyons has a variety of insulation products to keep the heat in in the winter and out in the summer. Thicker walls will, of course, also allow you to reduce heating and cooling costs. With energy efficient light fixtures and light bulbs, you can build a home that reflects your priorities. Lyons also has Kohltech windows that meet Passive House requirements. Our team is happy to help you find new efficient products to make sure your home is built how you want it.

Ensure your home is built to meet present code

When building a new home, the permitting and inspection process ensures that your home is constructed according to present safety standards. These standards ensure you will have up-to- date electrical wiring, so you’ll have no worries of hidden old knob and tube wiring causing a fire. Norquay, our sister company, has qualified engineers available to ensure that your project suits your needs and meets industry safety standards. There’s also no need to be concerned about a previous home owner’s DIY mistakes or oversights that could cause future costly renovations.

No need to renovate

You’ve probably heard of (or experienced) lengthy, costly home renovation stories; when you buy a new home, there’s no need to fix previous home owner’s design errors in order to meet your own standards. You’ve just made the biggest purchase of your life, and probably don’t want to spend additional money ripping out 1970s shag-carpeting. Instead, create your home the way you want it from the get-go.
