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.

When planning a new home addition, you should be aware that your existing house is much more than just four walls and a roof.

Most homeowners require external expertise to take their project from concept to completion. Technical advice and support are often required prior to and during construction. This is especially true if the nature of the property presents construction challenges.

Critical areas where homeowners need external expertise usually include:
As registered builders with the BC Builder Network we have full access to technical experts including designers, drafts-people, engineers and specialty trades. We can also help with choosing materials that perform well in the Fort Saint John area.
Working with Fort Saint John Home Builders you can be confident that your project will come in on time and on budget.
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. Fort Saint John 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. Fort Saint John 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.
