Take a look at our new community projects.
Lots are still available and there is still time to select yours.
We meet with our clients to obtain a general list of features and requirements for their new home.
We talk about style, finishes, features, physical accommodations and more.
Inspiration images are helpful as we can often sense the desired outcome from the provided photos.
We will build on land our client owns or offer a complete turn-key package providing both land and home.
If an existing plan suits the needs of the client, we repurpose an existing plan and make changes as needed.
Changes usually include adjusting rooms by a few feet or changing the location and size of doors and windows.
Given the custom nature of our builds, we will also generate a completely new plan from the ground up. Clients provide their input throughout the entire process. We provide guidance on best practices as well as our 35+ years of building experience on what has and has not worked in the past.
We provide sketches of floorplans and renderings of the front elevation to give the client an ability to see what the home could look like at this very early stage.
Once we have the main floor plan confirmed, our pricing team works out costing and provides a complete cost breakdown with contract.
Our contracts are written in plain English, and our specifications are shown in written format as well as from a Model Home or by way of imagery from a home we built previously.
Given our turn-key process, our team obtains all necessary building permits including but not limited to the local municipality and conservation authority.
Construction commences according to our schedule and based on the closing date of the property.
Our selection team meets with the client to choose interior and exterior colours and finishes.
Product is ordered and set aside/delivered in a timely fashion so that construction may occur on time.
The home closes as being complete, with an occupancy permit, on time and on budget.
Our company has a legacy of never missing a closing date in over 35 years.
“My wife and I had decided to move from Ottawa and retire in Quinte West and build a new home. We chose the new sub division of Orchard Lane and selected Davis New Homes as our builder. Right from the beginning we received excellent service and advice from Ben as he helped us start the process. We owned many homes, but had never built before, so we were somewhat apprehensive and nervous about what we were getting into. Rest assured, Ben and team quickly put our minds at ease and made us feel very comfortable and guided us expertly through all aspects of the build. Their crew and sub contractors were equally impressive; always attentive to our needs and easy to work with. When we finally took possession of our new home we could not have been happier. The quality of the workmanship was evident and the follow up service has been exceptional. Their customer service team, Kati and Alex, remain attentive to our needs and have ensured all issues were quickly resolved. Davis New Homes have proved that they truly care about their clients by offering a well built quality home and outstanding service. We highly recommend them!”

“We moved into our new Davis built home in August on schedule. We are very happy with our Davis built home and had very few issues that were immediately taken care of. If we ever built again, it would definitely be with Davis homes.”
- David Wood
“Davis New Homes built us a new house as well as installing some appliances. I was very satisfied with the quality of
their work. The attention to detail was outstanding. It showed their superior craftsmanship. The entire project was
actually completed ahead of schedule. I would definitely use them again if I ever need to built another house.”
- James Schwark
