1. Sales Process
Let’s Begin! Meet with our experienced Sales Manager to share your desires and dreams for your custom home in Edmonton. Whether you have built before or are new to home construction, our professional team will be your guide. We will make sure that your building experience with us is positive. During this initial stage - you will:
- Receive an Alberta New Home Warranty Program sales agreement
- Decide on the style of home you want or changes you’d like to make to any existing home design
- Select the exterior colours for your home
- Work closely with a drafting technician to develop preliminary drawings
- Discuss specification
2. Design Process
Use our library of home designs or create your own. As a custom home builder in Edmonton, we allow changes to our standard plans, including structure, square footage, interior design and engineering. We want to provide you with the house you’ve dreamt of. You will be actively involved in the design process; after all, it’s your custom home. Please note that plans are subject to architectural and developer guidelines in certain developments.
3. Administration Process
This is the nitty-gritty part where our administration staff sets up a personalized construction file, obtains engineered drawings, completes submissions for architectural approval where required, and submits for development and building permits.
4. Pre-Construction Process
Next, you will meet with the Construction Manager to review the plans for your custom homes in Edmonton. This meeting is where your dreams are translated into form and function; the concerned parties ensure that all the puzzle pieces such as lot size and functionality fit together perfectly.
5. Selection Process
It’s time to shop… At Blackstone, we don’t limit your choices; rather, we provide you with trusted suppliers to shop from to ensure you find what you want. You will get your Supplier Visit Schedule at your pre-construction meeting, which outlines the suppliers you will visit and shopping timelines. You will meet with our interior designer, who will help you merge your choices stylishly. Some visits include:
- Windows and doors
- Plumbing fixtures
- Cabinets and countertops
- Stairs and railings
- Lighting fixtures
- Shower doors and mirrors
- Finishing materials (baseboards and casings) and hardware
- Security and multimedia
6. Construction Process
Now the building begins! Your house is about to take shape. At this stage, your choices must be finalized and on paper so that the building process can progress smoothly. If you have any questions during construction, please contact the Construction Manager.
Your home is almost ready… We will notify you in writing 30 days prior to the possession of your house so that you can prepare. The date is typically set once the painting is complete. About two weeks before the possession, you will receive a Statement of Adjustments, which summarizes all additions and deletions.
The date you have been anticipating is here! To avoid delays, please ensure that you’ve settled up with banks and lawyers. Once these final steps are complete, it’s time to enjoy your new home. We hope that the effort and care put into constructing your custom homes make this life-changing event truly rewarding in Edmonton.
