Custom Home Building Questions from the BC Home and Garden Show

Vancouver custom home builder booth from Wallmark HomesFirst we would like to thank everyone who came by our brand new booth to visit at this year’s BC home and Garden show. If you were too busy to make it, don’t worry we have some answers here to the more common questions we were asked.

I’ve seen your communities around; do you also do Custom Homes?

Yes, Wallmark builds custom homes! In fact Wallmark has been building custom homes in Greater Vancouver for over 25 years now. We have a team of dedicated experts from design to construction that work one on one with a client from the initial meeting until long after the home is complete. We understand that every home owner and by extension every home is completely unique that’s why each home has its own team of experts.

We have a property but we don’t have a home design; should we come back after we have a home design?

Absolutely not, we work with home owners no matter what stage in the building process they are in. We actually prefer to have our experts be part of the design process. Far too often home owners come with a plan and a budget, but when we look at the plan, the design of the home exceeds the proposed budget. That’s why we like to offer someone to look over the preliminary plans and work with the home owner and designer to ensure that the final home can be built on budget. If you don’t have a designer in mind or would like us to help you find one don’t worry we have a select group of designers that we work with. All of this is part of our Constant Consultation Program (try saying that ten times fast).

I am currently looking for a property but I don’t know where or what to look for?

Custom Burnaby Home by Vancouver Builder Wallmark Homes

Without knowing specifically what your needs are this one is a little tougher to answer on a general basis. Each family is looking for something different with a custom home and the lot you choose is a major factor that determines what you can build. Are you looking for the option to build a suite? How about a detached garage or carriage or laneway home? Do you need a large yard with room to grow? How much can you afford with building a home? These are all factors that need to be considered when picking a lot.  Whether you're looking to build a custom home in Vancouver or anywhere in the Greater Vancouver area, give us a call or write us an email and let us know where and what you’re looking for and we can help steer you in the right direction. Once you found a lot you like let us know we would love to offer one of our industry experts to come by and take a look and let you know what if any issues you may face when it comes to building. Again all of this is part of our Constant Consultation Program.

Stay tuned for the conclusion of Custom Home Building Questions from the BC Home and Garden Show. Can’t wait until then, give us a call or contact us now and let us know what’s on your mind.
