Design Dreams Come to Life

Whether you’re buying, building or renovating your space, the 2013 National Home Show’s featured Dream Home by Quality HomesTM is one sure show stopper you won’t want to miss.

Packed with modern amenities, the factory assembled home, brings the country to the city with The Lindsay model, designed with sustainable luxury and revolutionary home building technology, all wrapped up in 1,800-square-feet.

With 3 bedrooms and 21/2-bathrooms, the open-concept space is perfect for the modern family who wants to live in comfortable digs that provides for fun, fabulous decor and all of the comforts of living, wherever you may choose to locate. Packaged with rural charm, the home is actually constructed indoors, and then assembled on your own lot and without exposure to the outside elements.


It took only seven working days to build the dream home at the Show. This home is a testament to the company’s homebuilding experience and illustrates how a highly controlled indoor construction process not only eliminates the challenges of building in the harsh Ontario climate, but also adds quality, logistical and financial controls, that allow projects to be completed on budget and on time. And what homeowner isn’t after that?

“It’s the perfect type of home for families,” says Howard Sher, executive vice president of Quality HomesTM, which is based in North York. “The kitchen is meant to be the focal point of this open-concept design.”

The kitchen breakfast bar, oversized living space and large dining area make this home the perfect place for entertaining friends and family, and creates an inviting space for
gathering groups or moving to more private areas.


A coffered ceiling in the living room creates a stunning statement in from the entry point. The addition of such detailing is a cost-effective way for renovators to upgrade, without spending a fortune. Light enters from oversized windows and patio doors that welcome the outdoors in, with light from morning until night.

The home pays special attention to the master ensuite that showcases a striking frameless glass shower and clean lines that complement the warm hues in this luxurious yet practical featured space. The washer and dryer are cleverly concealed with a barn door on rollers, providing a functional, unique and whimsical touch to the home’s modern interior.


From the exterior, the home continues to embrace the country charm theme and modern conveniences with elements that lend itself to either an urban, rural or even cottage environment. It also addresses the need for a maintenance-free exterior.


Tapered square columns and two patios make the dream home a delightful place to enjoy the outdoors — all year round. Trex composite decking and vinyl clad porch posts mean no painting or staining, just wash and go!


This year’s Dream Home is the result of a co-operative design contest held internationally at Quality Homes. All furnishing for the Dream Home at The National Home Show are provided by casalife.
