How Long Does it take to Build a Custom Home?

June 22, 2020

So you’ve decided to build a custom home in Calgary. It’s a decision that you’re going to love since once it’s complete, we at Melcom Homes will have created for you a beautifully designed home that exceeds your expectations – one that is energy efficient and meets all of the different design elements that you dreamt for your long term housing needs.

But one of the few disadvantages of custom homes is the wait. Your home has to be built first before you can move in, and the building cannot begin until we have every detail picked out for you so that your home is exactly as you envisioned it or better. That means that once we’ve broken ground, there is still time before your home will be finished.

When Will My Custom Home Be Done?

While it’s never a satisfying answer, as with most things in construction, there are factors at play. Size of the home, the quality of the land, the details – even the time of year. Before we can even begin, we have to:

  • Figure out all of the details of the home with you.
  • Find land that is possible for building.
  • Secure financing and sign all paperwork.

But what we can tell you is that Melcom Homes has been developing custom homes for years, and our process is one of the most efficient in all of Alberta. On average, we can compete for a home within 6 months of breaking ground. For larger homes or homes that have special needs, it should be completed within 7 months. In some cases, we can complete a custom home in 3 to 4 months depending on our schedule.

The Sooner We Start the Process The Sooner We’re in Your Home!

We know that you’re excited to get into your new custom home. But these things can take a little bit of time. That’s why the sooner we start on your home the sooner you’ll be moving into a place that is yours to love. Contact Melcom Homes today and let’s get started on your custom home.
