HOW IT WORKS
All of our plans were designed to work within city and province requirements. We understand the nuances of restrictions, codes and ordinances within each jurisdiction. Our library of plans maximize the size and functionality of our homes on the typical homesites in the neighborhoods in which we build. A CH representative can help you determine exactly which plans will best fit on your homesite.
Everything is included in the listed price and is guaranteed at the point of contract, so there are no unwelcome surprises or hidden costs. Each plan’s price includes complete architecture, construction management, interior design, landscape architecture and installation, and closing services for that home. It also includes, all demo, permit fees, new utilities fees and any additional city-related costs.
As you begin the design process with our in-house design team, your selected customizations and upgrades will be presented for review and approval in a Custom Design Budget prior to the start of construction. Full transparency of costs is just one of our promises to you.

Build on Your Homesite creates value for you by unleashing the equity in your home.
Build on Your Homesite is one of the most tax-efficient ways to a new, larger home. Unlike purchasing a new home in a new location, building on your existing homesite does not trigger a title transfer, which means there won’t be a tax reassessment of your home—potentially saving you thousands.
Offered through preferred lenders, Build on Your Homesite special financing takes your existing mortgage off the books and rolls your new construction loan into a permanent, long-term loan. You only pay a one-time close to minimize transaction costs. For more information, take the next step and request a call or meeting with a Cavalli Homes representative.
