We provide our customers with a variety of practical building options. This gives you the flexibility you need in structuring a working relationship with us that makes sense. A number of clients like to act as the general contractor but may need project management services in certain technical areas of construction. Some want a qualified general contractor to build the structure of the home to the lock-up stage and then complete the interior finishing on their own. Others want the general contractor to look after the entire project.
By breaking the construction process down into individual steps it becomes easier for homeowners to understand. This way you can plan step-by-step and make informed decisions on what you want to build and what resources you need to assemble.
Building a custom home successfully requires attention to detail and a good understanding of the construction process. There are many tasks to be completed which require management and skilled people to fulfill them. This is why most homeowners agree that it is safer to hire building professionals to complete their projects.
There are many design possibilities and thousands of building components with different performance characteristics to choose from. Williams Lake Home Builders can access all the resources you need to get your new home project completed as well as help you select the right design and combination of materials.
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, Williams Lake 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 Williams Lake Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.
A professional renovation makes your home more appealing, more efficient and more durable.

Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation. You will need to consider:
Good up-front planning is crucial before you start work to keep costs under control and get the best result. A thorough inspection will help you to assess the condition of your home. Williams Lake Home Builders can arrange for a professional home inspection for you that assesses signs of deterioration and the possible causes.
Williams Lake Home Builders can then help you plan your project and make your home look better, last longer and be more comfortable.
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. Williams Lake 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. Williams Lake 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:
Williams Lake 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.
Your choices of design, materials and construction method play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home. There are many ways to combine different construction types with design and material that creates the perfect home for you. Some may choose spacious open plan living, abundance of natural light and the ambiance of natural timbers while others prefer more traditional and easier to build structures.
Different construction methods will be required depending on the type of structure selected for the home. Conventional framing is the most common option. More complex homes may involve the use of post and beam, timber-frame or log structural components. In some cases, these components may be combined with a conventional frame to get a more cost-effective result.
Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. Williams Lake Home Builders uses the best construction practices no matter what design and structural materials are selected. We recommend the use of higher quality materials as they give a better finished result, reduce labor costs during the building process and minimize waste.
