When is the Best Time of Year to Build a Custom Home?

As Canadians, we are used to the snow. And depending on where you live, you expect the snow to come around mid-October. In western Canada, we are lucky to have a spring and even luckier to have an actual fall season!

Depending on where you live, the best time to build can differ. Knowing that the weather in western Canada is never predictable and we get snow almost seven months of the year, when is the best time for you to start building your custom home?

Best Time to Build

The best time to begin building your custom dream home is during the spring or summer. The weather is typically warm, and the days longer; therefore, your house's construction gets done quickly.

If you start in the spring, you can get the foundation, framing, and exterior of the home done before it gets too hot. Then, by the time summer and its accompanying heat comes around, the interior of your home can start to be worked on. If all goes well and the building stays on schedule, you could have a finished home by fall or winter.

What to do During Fall/Winter

If you know that you want the construction of your custom home to start in the spring or summer, it is a good idea to use the fall and winter months to research and plan. Take the time to find a plot that works for what you and your family needs, finalize floor plans, and if you are at the very beginning stage, find a home building company that has a proven track record and friendly representatives!

Planning and building a custom dream home takes time, so do your research so that when it comes time to build, you know what the potential obstacles could be!
