One of the benefits of working with Belledune Homes Ltd is that we do our own design work. This added value saves time and money on your project. Our approach is collaborative and iterative. We will keep working on your design until we get you the home that will meet your needs while fitting your budget. If you need help finding the perfect lot for your new home, Jody can help with that.
At the build stage we have a detailed budget, a design, a contact, a deposit, and a permit. We have already been working with you for several months at this point. We would have told you that the build process should take about 6 months from when we have the permit in hand, depending on the size and complexity of the project. You will have chosen windows and doors already as well as determined most of the options. The next phase is exciting, stressful, exciting again, and then you get to move in to your brand new home built for you and with you. See the Build Process document below for a quick summary of this phase.
Every year we get the privilege of enhancing homes and properties with additions, shops, and other larger remodels. Many people find that they cannot find a home that meets their needs and they love where they live. We are often able to come up with a plan that will correct your home’s limitations, allowing you to love your home again. Renovations are often more challenging than new construction due to complicated structural considerations and tie-ins to existing siding, roofing, electrical, heating, and finishing. Asbestos is a major concern for WorkSafeBC so we will ask you to get an older home tested for it in the areas that will be disturbed in a renovation. You will also want to consult with your bank to understand the various ways to finance your project and determine your budget. If you have a smaller project such as kitchen and bathroom replacements, we will soon be set up to manage these as well but can refer you to one of our skilled colleagues in the meantime.
