Cottages in Barrie

Barrie Custom Cottages

On the shores of Lake Simcoe, Barrie offers the perfect escape from the rapid pace of life in Toronto. This idyllic setting is a great location to build a custom cottage so that you and your family can relax and unwind. You can use the cottage for quick weekend getaways, or you can go all in and make it your primary residence. However you plan to use your cottage, Alair Homes can help you create the perfect design and layout to meet your needs and preferences.

Putting the Client in Control

Our customers love our proprietary Client Control system, and we’re sure that you will too. With this web-based system, you can log in at any time from your preferred device to check on the status of your build. That way, you won’t have to take time out of your busy schedule to drive out to the country every time you want an update. You’ll be able to monitor your budget and make changes to your selected materials, paint colors and fixtures as well. Reach out to us today to get the design process started for your new cottage.

How experienced are your Project Managers?

Since the success of your project relies heavily on strong management, we are extremely selective and hire only the best project managers. Our project managers receive extensive and ongoing training on a weekly and monthly basis. The success of our business is built on the strength of our project managers and we are proud of the highly skilled team we have assembled at Alair Homes Barrie.

What is your typical cost per square foot?

Cost per square foot is a very poor way to gauge the cost of completing your custom home because it is only relevant if you are comparing the exact same home plan and fitted with the exact same fixtures. Alair Homes Barrie will not quote on a per square foot basis because we understand that if you are going to achieve total satisfaction from building your own custom home, you deserve to understand the true cost of your project that matches your goals and specifications. This requires a thorough budgeting process with a knowledgeable construction professional with past experience in your type of project. This process does not take long and is the surest way to give you the confidence you need to understand what the total cost will be before the project starts.

Does Alair Homes Barrie provide fixed price or cost plus contracting?

We have developed a hybrid system known as Client Control™ that is the best of both worlds! We establish fixed prices from our trade partners and suppliers that create cost certainty plus you receive 100% transparency and control via an overall cost plus model. Please watch our video above explaining Client Control™ and also download our report outlining the benefits of this revolutionary method.

Can we walk through your showroom or visit a model home?

Each of our projects is as unique and diverse as our clients, which is exciting for us and important to our clients. However, if we have a project under construction, and we have the permission of the client we would love to show you a project in action! This is a great way to assess a contractor as you get to see things from the inside out. For Alair Homes Barrie, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.

We could not have had a better experience with Alair Homes. They were so easy to work with and took all of our stress away. We put a lot of trust into this company and they did not disappoint. We have had several friends choose to use this company after they saw our finished renovations.

We had the opportunity to work with ALAIR Homes on one of their major renovation projects. The project was well planned and organized. Project details and timings fell right into place making our part of the job easy. It was a pleasure working with ALAIR and their team of Project Managers. It sure makes life easy when working with True Professionals.

ALAIR HOMES BARRIE came in with a responsive and affordable quote and began the work effort to finish our basement almost immediately. They use a very transparent budgeting tool that allows us to see the costing as the work progresses and when new features are requested to be added into the quote by us (customer) the total is updated to reflect the new total costs. This combined with their ability to add photos or product pictures, simplifies and keeps the process honest and informative.

The teams of trades persons that Ryan sent for all the activities (HVAC, Carpentry, lighting, drywall, stone work) were all excellent at their trade and the results are clearly superior. We are very pleased with the results.

Special thanks to Kal for his incredible carpentry work…he worked full days and was very focused!

Great results, excellent online tools, friendly and respectful team. We will recommend them to our friends and family for sure. Very glad we called Alair Homes!
