Hiring One Company for a Seamless Project, from Start to Finish

After coming off a bad experience with another builder, the Kernahan’s mortgage broker Cari Skjerven, suggested they build with B&B Homes.  After going on B&B’s website and finding their dream home design and receiving some helpful advice when calling in, it sealed the deal for them to work with B&B Homes. Now the rest is history!

Mike and Jennifer worked with B&B Homes for their entire project from start to finish, from the foundation pour to the RTM build, and the onsite build of a three car garage. See how this home transformed into a dinner party hosting haven with the help of B&B Home’s onsite designer.

Finding Their Dream Home by Customizing the Willowdale Design Plan

“We finalized our plan with Katia and picked out our selections for our house and got updates through their easy to use co-construct program to manage the project as the house was being built. The selections you can choose to customize your home are endless and co-construct made the project a breeze!”

Creating a Cooking Oasis and Dinner Party Hosting Haven

Since Jennifer and Mike both spend a lot of time cooking in the kitchen and are very social, designing a kitchen that met these needs was one of the most important aspects of their home. Mike and Jennifer had a lot of fun working with B&B’s on-site designer Katia to make their dream kitchen come to life!

“We love the big Island, we get lots of compliments on this kitchen. Thanks Katia for adding the extra touches! We love our kitchen!  Even cooking up leftovers is fun!  Everyone that comes over to our place loves our open concept kitchen dining living room.  We entertained last month with 20 people in the house and it was so much fun.  Nobody was left out of the conversations at any time.”

-Jennifer Kernahan

Stress-free with B&B’s Co-Construct Project Management Tool

As they live far away, it was nice to see the progress of the house being built and to communicate through co-construct on any issues that needed to be addressed, as their house was being built.  It was also a major selling feature to not have to worry about looking for other contractors to do the eaves troughs, basement cement work or garage doors.

“Everything about the build from start to finish went so smooth and stress free.

Impressed with Punctual After Care Service Work in the Warranty

Since the garage was built on site and the shingles put on in the late fall, due to the late timing they didn’t get a chance to tab down properly. After two weeks of windy weather and one day of extreme winds, a small part of the shingles started lifting and a few started to come off. After they assessed the damage they contacted Darwin at B&B.  In less than a week, B&B’s service team came out and repaired the missing shingles and went over the whole roof and tabbed down anything that was slightly loose.

The Kernahans were really impressed on the speed of which their claim was dealt with. Especially for the distance they are from the B&B site just outside of Delisle, that this was dealt with in a speedy manner.

“It is hard to find any company to deal with a claim that fast. Just shows B&B Homes takes pride in what they build and they really do care about their customers.”

Delivering an RTM Onto an Existing Foundation Outside of Moose Jaw.

When Mandi Odynski and Jesse Corcoran originally first engaged with B&B Homes, they wanted to know what their options were to put a new RTM home on an existing foundation on some land they owned just outside of Moose Jaw. Travis, B&B Homes’ President headed out to their farm to take some measurements so B&B’s on-site designer could draft what would be possible for a pure custom home design that would fit the dimensions.

Building a Custom RTM on an Existing Foundation outside of Moose Jaw

Once it was determined that their existing foundation was usable for a new RTM home, Mandi and Jesse began working with Katia, B&B Home’s designer to plan a custom home that would suite their lifestyle. Not long after, B&B Homes delivered an RTM home covering 1427 sq feet to their land. They were able to utilize existing plumbing and included some new ICF insulation in the foundation for a future DIY basement. The design of the basement included room for bedrooms later on down the road if needed.

B & B Homes was able to move up our delivery date and hired an amazing crew that immediately eased my worries regarding the placement of our home on the foundation!

Colors and Unique Custom Selections for Entertaining

When picking colors and making features selections and decisions, Mandi liked the warmth that brown brought into the home. Since they regularly entertain guests, it was essential to have both a functional kitchen with a big island with an expansive eating ledge, with room for the pool table to fit between the kitchen and living room! Other features they included were a wine rack above the fridge, a pull out garbage, a study/guest room and a walk-in closet ensuite

Choosing the Right Builder for their RTM Project

Mandi and Jesse heard about B&B Homes through their friends. They chose to work with B&B Homes over other builders because they liked the product, price and finishes they saw in their friend’s home. They heard B&B Homes was really good to work with, which they were able to confirm themselves after a few site visits and agreed.

“Thank you B & B Homes for walking us through the building process, answering all our questions and concerns, and providing us with our beautiful home – we love it!”

Building A Custom RTM For A Family

A home that can weather the enthusiasm of children, entertain guests, and provide sanctuary in a quiet study or den are all considerations and part of the fun in building a custom RTM home for a family. Each home we make at B&B is made for individual families’ unique lifestyles and tastes. We really enjoy helping guide future custom RTM homeowners through the design process to create a home that is completely suited for them.

 

Bedrooms and the Floor Plan

Big family or small family? Empty Nester’s? The importance of easy access to the kids’ rooms by grouping them together may vary in importance if you are raising infants or moody teenagers. Perhaps a basement is a good long term investment for future needs. For a lot of our customers, this is their final home, so we make sure to design a home that will fit their needs and lifestyle for years to come.

 

Flooring

Easy to clean? Sometimes dark woods are less forgiving of dust and pet hair than other alternatives. Be honest with yourself, are you on top of your cleaning? We have lots of laminate, vinyl, tile, and carpet selections to meet your budget and personal priorities for which areas you prefer to accentuate in the home. Bringing in a cleaning services company can help with a full and thorough clean of all areas, they can also help with giving out advice on what products to use and when and where to use them, ensuring the home is cleaned and maintained correctly.

 

Big Kitchens for Big Families and Entertaining

Does your family sit down together for each meal? Big islands in the kitchen are often convenient to grab a bite on the go and offer plenty of space to prepare meals. For those that are really serious in the kitchen, having two sinks may be a convenient feature to add.

 

Do You Entertain?

The kitchen is the focal point when hosting guests. It is also a place where discerning homeowners can add a few upgrades that will make life more enjoyable. Keeping the design plan open with high vaulted ceilings creates an inviting space to enjoy and relax in.

 

Creating Ambiance to Last a Lifetime

If you plan to build a custom home that you will be living in for most of your life, in the long run, it’s worth it to upgrade to finishes and materials that make your home a sanctuary to relax in. Quartz and tile finishes add a natural feel and glamorous look. Since you spend a lot of time in the bathroom, customizing with his and her vanities can help you stay comfortable sharing the space.
