Explore the entire A&S Process, from browsing to buying to building.
A&S Homes has a committed team of professionals that will be with you at every step in the home building process, providing you with both flexibility and guidance as you determine the details of your dream home. To give you an idea of the major milestones in our process, here is a general overview of what you can expect from A&S Homes.
Step 1 – Explore
Whether on our website, at the A&S head office, or in-person at one of our show homes, our goal is to help you find a home that fits your lifestyle. We invite you to browse through our extensive collection of layouts until you find one to call your own.
Step 2 – Select
Once you’ve decided you’re ready to move forward with A&S Homes, get in touch with one of our knowledgeable representatives to make a final decision on the model you’d like to build, and the community or lot you’d like to build on.
Step 3 – Sign
At this point, we’ll sit down with you to draw up an Offer of Intent and a Contract Offer. The Offer of Intent guarantees the home and lot you select will be yours to purchase. The Contract Offer ensures everything on the legal side of things is in order for both you and A&S. Your contract will also contain any alterations or conditions you have in the floorplan of your home, and the agreed-upon price.
Step 4 – Drawings
The next step in our process is to put pen to paper yet again – but this time our drafting department will be the busy ones, drawing up building plans according to your contract. You’ll have the opportunity to sit down with your agent and review the preliminary plans to make sure they’re what you envisioned. Of course, any changes you have can be accommodated at this point, with as many plan reviews as necessary.
Step 5 – Engineering
Once we have sign-off from you on the drawings, your plan is handed over to our engineering experts as we take the final steps before building your new home. After all of your permits are in line, your home is officially in construction.
Step 6 – Design
While the cement is drying and the walls are going up, you’ll sit down with one of our talented interior designers to plan the style of your home from the ground up. Everything from exterior accents to interior colours are yours to select at this phase in our process – with flexibility to review your choices and make alterations during the design stage.
Step 7 – Build
Your home will now be built according to the design and drafting specs determined in the earlier phases of our process. During this time, it’s normal to want to check in and see what’s happening, and A&S is there to provide you with updates when you need them.
Step 8 – Walk Through
Approximately one week before the big move-in day, we’ll go on a walk through with you in your new home to make sure everything is in order. Any final touch-ups and adjustments will be made before you take possession.
Step 9 – Moving Day
Congratulations! A&S is committed to making your move-in day one to remember, but also one where you can focus on settling in rather than fixing up. We’ll take you on a final walk through to ensure you’re happy with your new home, and make any other touch-ups as needed. After that, it’s yours to enjoy for many years to come.
