Happy Homeowners: Dan & Janet’s Dream Home

When you build with Quality Homes, you not only get a beautiful home that will last for years to come but you’re also part of the family! In this article, we’d like to turn it over to Dan and Janet, two of our very happy customers to share with you just a few of the reasons why they chose Quality Homes.


Meet new Quality Home owners, Dan and Janet!


Dan and Janet started out with a beautiful piece of property in Burford, ON (about 40 minutes west of Hamilton) that they already owned and thought would be just perfect for a custom home. This gave them the opportunity as well to allow their son and his fiancé to move into their existing home. Talk about a win-win! A place for the kids, and a beautiful custom home for the parents!


Selecting a builder is an important decision. Your builder will help you transition into this next phase of your life and our team here at Quality Homes makes this transition as easy as can be.


“We really liked the idea of the house being built indoors and the fact that there would be no over-runs,” said Janet.


At Quality Homes, we make it easier, finish it faster and build it smarter than traditionally-built homes. Each Quality Home is constructed indoors in our climate-controlled facility using material and methodologies that result in a stronger, straighter, more precise structure than a home built on-site. Our modular building system also allows us to control every step of the building process so we can guarantee pricing – the price we quote is the price you pay – no cost over-runs or surprises.


Once Dan and Janet had decided to work with Quality Homes as their custom home builder, the next step was to select their design. They chose The Simcoe – a beautiful single-storey home with a two-car garage attached through the mud room. But the feature that sold them on the home was the wrap-around porch.


The Simcoe Floorplan: 



“I really fell in love with the wrap-around porch,” said Janet. “And we wanted a home with a garage and the layout of the home really suited our needs.”


When you build with Quality Homes, you have the ability to customize the design to make it your dream home. And that is exactly what the Baileys did. The second bedroom became a study/den. The master ensuite was upgraded to include a soaker tub and a freestanding shower. And the powder room was upgraded to include a shower.


“The process went very well,” said Dan. “We were able to customize some changes to the plans and there were lots of options to choose from for the interior and exterior finishes.”


For the exterior of the home, they selected warm colours with lighter natural tones as accents.




  • Owens Corning Lifetime Shingles in Onyx Black
  • Gentek Siding in Windswept Smoke
  • Soffit, Fascia & Eaves in Pebble
  • Windows & other accents like decorative vent, frieze board, corner trim in Bright White


For the interior, they selected an array of modern finishes for the kitchen and bathroom.




  • Laminate countertop in Magnata
  • Dark cabinetry in Java
  • Matte black hardware
  • Ceramic tile backsplash from Centura in Zircon
  • Medium dark vinyl plank flooring from Centura in Stone Ridge



  • Laminate countertop in Cote D’Azur
  • Dark cabinetry in Kendall Charcoal
  • Chrome hardware
  • Vinyl tile flooring from Centura in Rock Garden



With the plans in place, they were finally ready to build!


The home’s foundation was poured in early May 2020.





All in all, the entire process took approximately 9 months (from the time we met Dan and Janet to the time their home was installed on their lot). Dan and Janet signed a contract mid-August 2019. The foundation for their home was poured in early May of 2020. And the home was delivered on May 21, 2020. Final work on-site is currently being completed and they anticipate moving in towards the end of July.


We asked Dan and Janet what advice they would give to someone else who was going through this process.


Their answer?


“Check out Quality Homes as they have a lot of options and models to choose from and the cost is reasonable as well.”


And we couldn’t agree more!
