custom new home building

While building great homes, every experience is a little different. Genre offers a complete, custom, design/build process weather it’s building new or renovating the old, however the overall process remains fairly consistent.  Overall timelines are certainly by the local weather and by which municipality the permit review will be conducted in.  The timelines below represent the entire process, of which, approximately half is upfront with design, engineering and permitting.

Genre Home Collections - new builds, vary on size and scope, 12 to 14 months

Genre Design/Build - new builds, vary on size and scope, 10 to 12 months

Genre Renovation - existing spaces, vary on size and scope, but generally 5 to 8 months.
