New Custom Builds
Allard Custom Homes can help you design your dream home and provide invaluable advice when figuring out your target floor plans. You will usually have an older home that needs to be demolished and we then proceed to create a new foundation for your target home. These projects typically start around $400,000 for smaller 2,000 sqft homes and go up accordingly. Our project management skills allow us to complete new builds in 6-9 months!
Large Scale Renovations
Allard Custom Homes can help you transform your older home into a brand new interior. We typically start with a complete or partial "gut job". We then remove existing walls to create open spaces (usually for a combined kitchen and family room) and move partition walls to create or modify existing rooms. In the process, there may be structural work to increase ceiling heights in the basement (through underpinning) and on the main floor. Projects typically start around $100,000 for a small 1,400 sqft two-storey home.
We can build an addition to your existing home by removing the back (or side) wall and create a concrete or block wall foundation for the extended living space. We then frame a one or two-storey addition that will extend the footprint of your existing home. These projects typically involve removing most partition walls on both the main and second floor and laying out a brand new floor plan to accomodate a large family room on the main floor and additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor. These projects typically start around $200,000 depending on the size of the addition.
Second Storey additions
We can add a second storey to your existing bungalow! We will start by removing the existing roof, then create the floor and staircase and frame the new second floor layout. These are exciting project as you typically double the size of your home and reconfigure the entire main floor in the process. You'll end up with a brand new home! These projects typically start around $200,000 for an 800 sqft bungalow. We work
extremely fast and can typically complete the entire project within 4-6 months!
