TRUST IS SOMETHING WE'VE BUILT OVER YEARS
OUR HOME BUILDING PROCESS
Building a custom home, your dream home, is all about you and your needs. At Copper Brook Custom Homes Calgary, we work closely with you to build your dream home exactly to the requirements of your family now and long into the future. Copper Brook is your partner for a Calgary custom home that will be a testament to your family for decades to come.
When building a custom home you are not required to adapt to a less than optimal production home with limited layouts, options and even land choices. With Copper Brook, absolutely anything is possible. We take the time to listen and fully understand your requirements. We’ll help you plan and choose the optimal layout, all the finishings, materials and fixtures with the utmost energy efficiency and aesthetic beauty. Not only do you get exactly what you want, but every inch of your home is built to the highest quality with expert craftsmanship. Here is an overview of the Copper Brook Custom Home Building Process.
Our first meetings are about making sure Copper Brook is the right builder for your dream home. It’s your chance to interview us to find out why we are the best builder for your custom home. Ask your toughest questions. We want you to completely understand our building philosophy, how good we are to work with and the entire homebuilding process from start to finish. Of course, we’re always just a phone call away if you think of anything later.
We’ll also ask many questions to fully understand what you want from your dream home and start the early discussions on your requirements and design criteria. This is also the time to discuss budget and financing options available to you. Copper Brook will strive to make the entire planning and construction as seamless as possible.
If you’re considering a new custom home, you probably already have your land selected. If not, we can help choose the perfect location, while advising on suitability for your new home. We have extensive experience in Calgary and surrounding areas to help you choose the perfect plot of land to build your masterpiece.
Once the land is selected, the Copper Brook team will begin the evaluation and design process to find the perfect home placement, taking into consideration views, natural geography, existing landscaping and how to best utilize the land for your needs and the construction process. The site of your home can have a substantial impact on project costs, accessibility, building permissions, etc. We’ll help you optimize the land for your budget and requirements.
If you already have your own architect or home designer, our team will work closely with them to ensure feasibility of the designs. Copper Brook also has our own architects and designers to work with you to plan your perfect home. This is a comprehensive phase to fully design the home of your dreams. Before we get to the Design Discovery stage, it’s a great idea to start collecting ideas of what you like in home designs. Check out our article on floor planning for ideas on how to get started.
This is where the full planning and design of your home takes place. We’ll finalize a comprehensive budget based on all the specific options of materials, appliances, finishes, landscaping, and everything you want to include in your custom home. Once you are satisfied with all the details and budget, we’ll finalize and sign the contract describing all the details of your complete home construction.
Final architectural drawings will be completed and submitted for permits and approvals. All outstanding permit issues will be resolved with city officials before giving you an exact timeline of construction.
“BUILDING A CUSTOM HOME CAN AND SHOULD BE AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. WITH EVERY HOME WE BUILD WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MAKE SURE OUR CLIENTS ENJOY THE JOURNEY AS MUCH AS THEIR NEW HOME”

Now we start building your home. The process starts with site preparation and excavation and continues through footings and foundation walls. Next comes floor joists, framing, the exterior and the installation of windows and doors.
While the frame and exterior of your home is constructed, you’ll have ample opportunity to review interior decisions like custom cabinets, flooring, lighting, plumbing, media systems, homes alarms and more. Visit regularly to watch the progress, inspect the quality and ask any questions.
Congratulations! Your dream home is complete. Copper Brook will take extra care to completely clean your entire home and job site. It will be in pristine condition and ready for your move. We’ll do a thorough inspection together and show you all the features of your dream home. We’ll provide you with all the manuals, warranties and and other information you’ll need for your home.
We’ll contact you again in following months to make sure that you’re overjoyed about your new home. Copper Brook is happy to answer any questions you have and address any issues you found after a few months of living in the home.
Founder Josh Kulbaba, and the entire Copper Brook team pride ourselves on the quality of service and construction we extend to every customer.
