Constructing Homes...Building CommunitiesSince 1986

You're deciding or are considering building a custom home? Firstly, let us congratulate you. We know the proposition can be a daunting one given the complexities involved. Over the last 30+ years, Parkside Homes has worked with many clients in your exact situation.

We like to think that we've developed a very keen understanding of what it is like to walk in the shoes of the client and in doing so, we take it upon ourselves to make this as enjoyable an experience as possible. We are with you every step of the way from the planning of your custom home to the big dig to the key handover and beyond.

We have a different approach to building than most. It is our firm belief that the relationship between builder and client begin on the right footing. It starts with an open line of communication. We work hard to exceed your expectations and in turn, our own. It is perhaps one of the reasons why we've been the chosen builder of many quality custom homes in some of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the Niagara region.

We begin the process at the design studio with you to customize your plan to your exact specifications. As a standard, we assign a designer and customer care specialist to assist you with the selection of materials and accompany you to visit each supplier and select all exterior and interior finishes. You may be intricately involved in the process by participating in numerous walk throughs to confirm all final details including placement of electrical outlets, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, final framing details, etc. Our focus is high quality custom building that meets your exact requirements and specifications.

Still curious about us and the custom home building process? Learn more below.

STEP 1 - Preliminary Meet
STEP 2 - General Plan
STEP 3 - Follow-up Meeting
STEP 4 - Permits Requested

The custom home building process begins with a meeting between Parkside Homes and the client. This will be the beginning of an open dialogue between builder and client as we work together to build your dream home.

Following our initial meeting, we will set up a meeting between us, our in-house designer and client.

It is during this meeting that you will outline your wishlist for your custom home as well as what type of home you are considering. To help create a more realistic and immersive plan, Parkside Homes offers 3D tours. These tours are available at additional cost and allow you to make changes and apply various finishings and selections.

3D Customization Example

After you have received a first draft from our in-house designer, we will set up a follow-up meeting to discuss any changes you'd like to see made.

Further meetings can be arranged as needed.

Once you have approved all plans, we will file them with the city for all necessary permits to begin work on the building of your new custom home.
