For over 35 years now, we at Dreamland Homes have worked hard to ensure every home built meets our high standard of quality and excellence. Not an easy task, considering the hundreds of steps involved in building a high-quality home. Here are just a few, but important differences in a Dreamland built home.
With every new community, we meet with our architect firm to determine the best designs possible for the area. We could just copy designs from past sites, but that’s not us. We ensure designs fit the community and you. By using a mix of materials, such as brick, stone, and maintenance free cladding, we are able to create wonderful designs that stand the test of time. Floor plans are scrutinised and reviewed until we are happy with the layout. Open concepts, whenever possible, and 9’ main floor ceilings are always a must and if you are looking for something a little more custom, we’re always open to changes.
A GOOD FOUNDATION IS KEY
We decided long ago that control from the ground up is crucial for a quality built and long lasting home. We excavate and prepare all or our own foundations. By doing so, this ensures proper home placement on your lot, and a level footing for foundation walls to be constructed.
SILENCE IS BLISS
Since our foundations are strong and sound, we carry on that level of quality throughout the home. We use an engineered flooring system which produces a stronger floor with less flex. By using this system, we dramatically reduce any floor squeaks.
On top of this, we install 5/8” thick spruce plywood subfloor – not thin OSB board that splits, warps and cups. Using spruce plywood prevents tile from cracking and further reduces the chance of any squeaks or creaks. Rest assured, in our homes, those sneaky midnight snacks will go unnoticed.
A COMFORTABLE HOME
A comfortable home makes for a happy home; and today, efficiency makes for a happy homeowner. Included is a high-efficiency HVAC system that keeps the inside of your home comfortable year round. Low E, argon filled vinyl casement windows keep the inclement weather out. Since we build our homes air tight, we also include an HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) System, which brings filtered fresh air in, and exhausts stale air out. These systems work together to make your home’s air quality perfect for those lazy Sundays when a good book and a comfy sofa take priority.
IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS
We look at our builds like they are our own. Modern materials and finishes are prominent throughout. Satin nickel hardware, decora light switches & receptacles, colonial baseboard and trim-work are all standard with Dreamland. From larger basement windows that let more light in, to exterior holiday plugs, making it easy to decorate your home during the holidays, we strive to anticipate your needs and ensure you are well equipped from the moment we hand you the keys.
