The Designer-Builder Process: How we create award-winning homes

01 Jun 2022 - Design-Build

What would your home look like if you led the design? Would you build your basement into a state-of-the-art home gym or finally create that home theatre perfect for movie nights with the family and football Sundays? When you work with a custom home builder to create a designer home, anything is possible.

At Bellamy Homes, we pride ourselves on creating homes that come alive in the details. For us, there’s no greater feeling than creating a space that is uniquely you through thoughtful design and expert craftsmanship.

From maximizing your kitchen view for that first cup of coffee to hosting neighbours for pizza made in your outdoor brick oven, building a custom home is an intimate experience that requires superb planning, communication and attention to detail.

But how do we take your vision and transform it into a space you can’t wait to call home? Let’s unpack our process for creating elegant custom homes.

Step 1. Talking over coffee

To create a designer home that fits your lifestyle, we need your help. Your input in everything from how you spend your weekends to your dream countertop helps us create a home that reflects who you are.

As you form your wish list, create idea books and save your favourite designs to a Pinterest board. Anything that helps you picture your future home brings us closer to realizing your vision of a dream home. You bring the ideas, we put on the coffee, and we’ll get to work together.

Step 2. Putting pen to paper

Armed with your list of must-haves, our CEO, designer and builder Les Bellamy will translate your vision to paper. We start with a preliminary main-floor drawing. From here, we’ll begin to build out additional floors and features you’ll love—your vanishing edge swimming pool and home theatre—as we marry the interior and exterior design.

Before we start pouring the concrete, you’ll have a full set of working construction documents and permit drawings that give shape to your designer home.

Step 3. Breaking ground

Once you’ve approved the design, it’s time to finalize your selections. We’ll introduce you to our suppliers and other members our design team as we draft a selection schedule. This step is critical. It ensures you know exactly what materials and fixtures you’re getting and empowers us to coordinate delivery and installations that align with our construction schedule.

Now it’s time to turn your beautiful piece of land into your personal retreat.

Step 4. Guiding you home

From the moment you take your first sip of coffee in our discovery meeting to the first pot brewed in your new designer home, we’re with you every step of the way. Guided by our detailed construction schedule, our team handles the fine details.

We guard your budget, schedule trades months in advance, and ensure your home is move-in ready on a timely schedule. All you need to do is start dreaming about your new life in a space that feels just right.

At Bellamy, we’ve been creating exceptional custom homes since 2008. As the designers of your luxury home, with every inch born in our studio, we know exactly what it takes to bring your design to life.
