Stock plans, modifications and custom design.
Our design committee creates new designs year-round to meet market needs and housing trends. These designs become stock plans and are featured in our yearly book. Each plan can be customized to the homeowner’s ideal home design.
Interior customization often relates to family requirements. A couple may want an ensuite added to the main floor bedroom, or a couple with a baby on the way may want to add a nursery. These changes are all possible.
Clients may want a roof line altered, a change to window size or the entrance of the home moved. These are all modifications we’ve completed.
With the constant change in municipal bylaws, and building lots taking on a variety of shapes and sizes, Jenish will check the home you have chosen to see if it fits within all of the set requirements.
From concept to completion – welcome home.
If you would like any customization to your Jenish Home plan, reach out to us! It’s better to change plans on paper than during the construction phase. Let us know what you’d like updated and we’ll see if it’s structurally possible. Reversed plans and material lists are also available for any of our plans.
Purchase our plans online or at any of our office locations.
Kind words from our customers.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Trevor with Jenish Design for residential building needs.
