Turning a dream home a reality

Building a custom home is the ultimate dream for many homeowners.  Yet, as amazing as it sounds to build a dream home from scratch, it may not be the most practical or viable option. The good news is that, despite being an amazing opportunity, ground up customization is not the only means available for homeowner’s visions to become reality. In order to learn more about the other options available, and everything else to do with building a customized home, spoke with Vazken Nakhnikian of Dupont Custom Homes, a GTA industry leader in building and customizing homes.

True Customization

Although it may not be an option available to all of us, it cannot be denied that building your own dream home is the gold standard for customization. Whatever the colour, whatever the shape, whatever the finish, building your own home from scratch will allow you an unmatched level of creative input as compared to pre purchase or sub division options. “We will do everything we can to help make our clients visions and ideas come to life,” Nakhnikian says.

Not Just New Homes

“Let’s face it, many of us will not have the opportunity to build our dream home from scratch, but that does not mean we cannot customize our homes in unique ways” Nakhnikian says.  In fact, a growing proportion of the home customization industry is geared towards home renovations and home additions. You should know that these options allow you a great deal of interior customization at the fraction of the cost of building a brand new home.

Hassle Free

Regardless of the project, Dupont Custom Homes takes care of all required city permits and inspections and can often adapt their work to clients changing needs throughout the construction process. “One of the benefits of home customization is that we can be very accommodating, even once construction has commenced” Nahknikian explains. Sometimes even the best architectural drawings may not allow homeowners to fully appreciate what the final product will look like. Once a job starts, the customization does not end as adaptation is almost always an option.
