Custom home construction involves many complex variables. Making informed decisions on developing a suitable design, selecting the right materials and keeping on budget can be challenging for most clients. Nakusp Home Builders can help you with every stage of the building process, including hiring the right subcontractors and trades. We can manage your custom home project from start to finish.

New Home Construction

Nakusp Home Builders is experienced in working on custom home projects of various types and sizes. Homes have become more complex over the years and building code requirements more stringent. This has affected the timeframe it takes to obtain building permits in the Nakusp area.

Many of our customers have found that it is helpful to understand the building process before construction begins. Nakusp Home Builders gives you realistic expectations and can help you make informed decisions about what is involved in construction in the following areas:

  • Site specific design and material selection
  • Budget preparation
  • Building permits and approvals
  • Site preparation and improvement
  • Installation of foundations
  • Completing the basic structure of the home
  • Finishing the interior of the home

The cost to complete your home to occupancy will be dependent on the size, location and complexity of the project. The time taken, availability and quality of trades-people used will affect the labor component. The reality is that it is more important to consider the value of work being done than simply choosing trades based on a low hourly rate.

Choosing the right people can save on a lot of labor cost and fixing problems later on. Generally the use of higher quality material gives you a better finished result, less waste and lower maintenance as well as substantial cost savings during construction. Nakusp Home Builders uses best construction practices in all of their projects.


Home Additions

A new addition may be just what it takes to accommodate a changing family or special lifestyle needs. You can expand a kitchen, add a bathroom or change your existing home into the home of your dreams. Whatever you have in mind, Nakusp Home Builders can help.

As with any construction project, an addition to your home requires careful planning. Before you decide to go ahead with the project, it is important to clearly identify the features you want. Just as important is a thorough inspection of the current structure so that any existing problems can be corrected at the same time.

The key challenge is to make sure that your addition meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home. You will likely need help from a professional designer who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.

At Nakusp Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.


Home Renovations

Homeowners have higher expectations than in the past, particularly about design, overall look and comfort when renovating their home. Nakusp Home Builders has the expertise needed to help with major renovation projects.

  • Renovate the exterior or interior of the house
  • Address lifestyle needs and structural layout
  • Upgrade electrical, plumbing, etc.

Working with Nakusp Home Builders gives you the assurance that you are getting someone with experience in the Nakusp area. We can give you a realistic estimate and perform the work to meet building codes. We can also assist you with professional design to bring your ideas to life. This includes the preparation of blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.

Nakusp Home Builders can arrange a professional estimate for you based on the scope of work needed. A professional renovation makes your home safer, more efficient and more durable. It also makes your home more attractive and better suited to your lifestyle and, in most cases, gives you a higher resale value.


Our Expertise

Building a new home, renovating your existing one or planning for a home addition requires careful planning and the right expertise to get the best result. Nakusp Home Builders has the experience and resources needed for any major home construction project.

Custom home projects require a variety of professional resources that understand the details of the project and work efficiently together. Although these people act independently, they need to be available at the right time and at different stages of the project. Nakusp Home Builders has a network of professionals who are used to working as a team.

Using a proven system means a much better finished result and more value in your home. Skilled people and the use of quality materials will pay for themselves during the construction. The building goes faster which saves labor costs and reduces construction waste.

Some of the more crucial areas where expertise is needed include:

  • Obtaining permits and approvals
  • Design and material selection
  • Structural load bearing and other engineering requirements
  • Assembling the right human resources
  • Constructing the home to meet building code standards
  • Controlling and managing the project

Nakusp Home Builders has full access to a wide range of technical experts including designers, drafts-people and engineers. In custom home construction, all projects are unique to some degree. The key to a successful outcome is to identify all the variables in the building process and make sure they are included in the budget.

We use the proprietary Custom Builder XPM ™ system, which was developed specifically for estimating the cost of custom home projects. This process enables you to plan ahead and make the right decisions to minimize the risk of budget overruns.


Design and Construction Options

The design you choose will determine what kind of construction method needs to be used to build the home. More complex structures, such as post and beam or timber-frame homes, use different structural techniques to support the roof and floors. They may also require different foundation load bearing points.

These structures have the advantage of being able to incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. Although they are a little more costly to build than conventional homes, they generally have a much higher appraised value. Nakusp Home Builders can help you determine the right kind of design for your budget.

Your choices of design, materials and construction method also play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home. Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. Nakusp Home Builders is capable of building a wide variety of custom homes and uses premium quality building materials to give you a better-finished result.
