What, Exactly, is a Custom Home Builder?

Custom-Home-RenovationCustom staircase VancouverKitchen renovation Vancouver

Simple: We create uniqueness. Kerr builds original, one-of-a-kind homes from scratch. We also design stunning renovations and remodeling for existing homes.

Don’t be fooled by “production builders”. They may tout themselves as custom home builders but typically offer only pre-designed house plans, sometimes with a few tweaks.

You are unique and your home should be too. We will work with you to realize your dream and build a home that truly reflects your taste, needs and personality.

Experience, Quality and Innovation Combined

With experience in every aspect of home building, Kerr Construction can bring together innovative designs, new technology, advanced quality materials, and also green, eco-friendly techniques.

As our incredible interior designers work alongside you to plan all elements, styles and finishes, our professional craftsmen will stun you with quality work that borders on art.

Whatever it is you desire – wine cellar, steam room, outdoor kitchen, vaulted ceilings, unique woodwork, media room, electronic networking, you name it – the Kerr team will listen to you and make your vision a reality.

A Custom Home in Vancouver Means…

Vancouver Home BuilderJust that. Custom. Tailor-made. Your way. The days of building the generic Vancouver Special are long gone. Even so, many production home builders still follow a formula, just as they did in the 1960s, to do the job cheaper. Getting away from the standard “cookie cutter” approach is exactly why you’re here.

Vancouver is a special part of the world – pristine, vibrant, bountiful, and livable. Your home should be designed not only to be a refuge after work, but also as a reflection of our enviable way of life here.

You deserve the best custom home to reflect your style and provide comfort, character, convenience and some contented luxury.

The Kerr System will provide all of these things, created by Vancouver’s supreme quality, award-winning, custom home builder.

The Kerr System

Our system is designed to make the entire process easier for you.

We lay out designs, details and budgets. We handle all permits and approvals. We organize inspections. We provide insurance and warranties for our work. And… we make YOU the most informed, important and comfortable figure at the centre of it all.

Kerr Construction will be with you through every stage of your project, from planning and designing to completion, from minute details to finished product. We supply and vet our own teams of design and construction professionals, so you don’t have to be concerned with confusing outsourcing.

During design, budgeting and throughout, your project manager, designer and construction crew will impart their knowledge and experience, which helps especially in minimizing delays and problems. Their intimate knowledge of construction methods, labour and material costs is invaluable when discussing and documenting the budget plan.

Peace of Mind the Way You Want

“Fantastic team to work with and a great testament to Kerr Construction’s slogan: ‘Quality Is Built – Trust is Earned’. We would absolutely recommend Kerr Construction to anyone.”

Custom home build in Vancouver Kerr Construction understands the Lower Mainland, from West Vancouver to Richmond to the Tri-Cities. We know the lifestyle, the landscapes, the climate, the housing market, the bylaws, the permits, the supply chain, the resources, the insurance game, and… the competition. Best of all, we know how to put all that together and still adapt to each client’s desires.

We also know that building a custom home necessitates being accommodating to people, especially with the financial decisions involved. Therefore, you can choose between the Cost-Plus method or a Fixed Fee:

  • Cost-Plus Contract – labor, materials, and management costs are added up and multiplied by a percentage to calculate the total amount due.
  • Fixed Fee Contract – all project details are documented in the contract and a fixed price listed for the work described.
