Custom home building in Wasaga Beach

Building a new home in the town of Wasaga Beach? Make sure you have the right contractor building it.

If you are thinking about building a new home in the town of Wasaga Beach the most important thing you can do is hire the right general contractor to build the house. What people don’t realize is that building in Wasaga Beach is different than building anywhere else in the Georgian Triangle. Wasaga Beach has its own rules that are different then a lot of the townships.

There are a lot of little things that the town of Wasaga Beach asks for that most other municipalities don’t. A lot of these things can add a lot of money to your house project, money that will be above and beyond the budget that most general contractors will give you.

Depending on what location you are building in the town of Wasaga Beach you will be digging in completely different soil conditions for the foundation. One part of Wasaga Beach is basically built on a swamp and on the other side of Wasaga Beach you will end up building in pure sand. There is even a part of Wasaga Beach that is farm land. So one side of the town has major water problems where you will have to spend a lot of time and energy making sure that the building is water tight and the other side of the town you will never have to worry about water conditions. On that side of the town though everything you do will have to be geared toward protecting the residence against blowing sand and high winds.

The blowing sand with high winds are so bad that the houses built on that side of town are literally being sand blasted most of the year.

Depending on where you are going to live in Wasaga Beach will determine the style and use of your home. If you are closer to the water you will want it geared toward beach living and if you are on the other side of town you will want your house geared toward a more suburban residential living environment.

 You need to hire a general contractor that has built custom homes in Wasaga Beach before and knows all the pitfalls that can become of someone erecting a house there.
Wasaga Beach has a lot of contractors that will tell you how great they are and then will give you a quote on the back of a business card for your home project.

  1. House painting is a job that many house owners in Massachusetts prefer to do themselves. This is done primarily to save the cost of hiring a painting contractor.

    Before labeling a property a luxury home we have to have an understanding of what "luxury" means in the context of real estate.

    1. Since I'm the builder of the house and know the price and the fit and finish of the home I would know if its a luxury home or not. Maybe it's different in Australia.

  3. I was reading your article and wondered if you had considered creating an ebook on this subject. Your writing would sell it fast. You have a lot of writing talent. Builders Blackpool
