New Home Construction Checklist

Here are a few things to consider when building a new home in Cape Breton. The new home construction team at Gills Home Builders can help with each and every item on this list:

  • Where exactly does the sun hit your house? Which side of the house do you want to morning sun hitting? Will you have shade on the back pool area in the evening? All important things to consider when building your new home.

  • Are you thinking of building a pool?  If your answer is yes, then choose where you want it to be before your home construction begins. Other things to consider are solar panels for heating, lighting, and landscaping around the pool area.

  • Fence height would be another important thing to think about whether it’s around your property or pool. If you have pets then a fence around your entire property would be our suggestion.

  • If you are into gardening make sure your outdoor faucets are in the right location. Maybe put one at the side of the house so you can wash your car and another in back where your garden will be planted.

  • Do you need a finished basement or an en-suite for an aging parent or family member?

  • Do you want a garage, shed, or gazebo built? Make sure to locate them in the right areas before your new home construction project is started.
