The Southside Process

Building your new home doesn’t need to complicated or stressful! Our process ensures that you always know what is going on with your project. Following are the 10 basic steps that you will take as we go through the build process.


1. Visit Us

Call or email us to arrange an initial meeting and consultation. We’re here to answer your preliminary questions.

2. Select Your Home

Choose your favourite model from our selection of home designs.

3. Pick Your Building Lot

Visit the community and take in the scenery and atmosphere of your potential home. Then select a lot that suits your tastes, your view and your budget.

4. Customize Your Home

Meet with our designer to customize and perfect the layout of the model home you’ve chosen. In addition to your general home customizations, you can also specify custom cabinetry and kitchens, for which we recommend Kraemer Kitchens.

5. Meet The Team

With your overall plan and feature list in place, you’ll be ready to discuss financing and finalize your project contract with our sales team.

6. Agreement Of Purchase And Sale

When you’ve had adequate time to review your project contract and ensure that you are ready to move ahead, we’ll arrange a meeting to sign the Agreement of Purchase & Sale. We use a no-pressure sales approach and give you the time and space you need to finalize this decision. We also provide copies for you to present to your financial institution and personal lawyer for consideration.

7. Finalize Your Color Selections

We recommend that you visit our supplier’s showrooms to pick out applicable exterior and interior finishes. Our trusted partners will help you choose products that are in your allowance budget and provide helpful advice with your selections.

8. Pre-Drywall Appointment

When the shell of your home is closed in, the roof is completed and we’re ready to insulate and drywall, we’ll invite you for a walk-through of your new home, along with our site supervisor. This ensures that your expectations have been met and all rough-ins have been installed according to plan.

9. Final Walk Through

Your home is complete! A Southside team member will take you through a detailed tour of the house, giving you the opportunity to ensure all aspects come up to both your and our high quality standards. We’ll also take the time to explain important mechanical and maintenance requirements as needed.

10. Warranty

We’ll be here for you after you move in, but for added assurance and peace of mind, your home is also covered by Tarion Home Warranty protection.
