Quality Homes blog


Since our inception over 35 years ago, Quality Homes has been innovating the homebuilding experience. So why would we stop now? Design trends, lifestyles, and homeowner interests are always changing, and we strive to adapt alongside them. This year, we’re starting off strong with an exciting new collection of modular home designs to elevate your modern home and cottage dreams to a whole new level. So without further delay, let’s take a closer look!


Modern Homes For Modern Living


A versatile collection of bungalow, two-storey, and cottage designs, these seven new plans range from two to four bedrooms, covering the whole spectrum of shapes and sizes to adapt to the needs of our diverse homeowners. While some are brand new designs, and some are old favourites given a modern refresh, they’re all the blend of beautiful and functional that you expect from a Quality Home. Let’s introduce you properly!




The Riverstone


A fresh new take on our most popular design, The Riverstone’s bold new makeover offers a variety of styles and layouts, depending on your needs. Between two charming elevations and three interior combinations, this compact bungalow cleverly offers layouts including 3 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms plus ensuite, or 2 bedrooms plus 2 full bathrooms, all within a 1,248 sq.ft. footprint. On the outside, the differences are seen in Riverstone A’s beautiful full-length porch with plenty of space to relax, and Riverstone B’s striking roofline detailing, but you’ll have to see for yourself! It’s the perfect design for a small lot, with the flexibility to perfectly match your lifestyle including the option for an attached garage in each design.



The Lakefield


One of our highly popular three-bedroom cottage designs, The Lakefield, also got a refresh this year! By changing the layout of the laundry room, foyer, and staircase, this charming 1,402 sq.ft. cottage has a welcoming entrance to greet you and your guests. But let’s not forget the most impressive part of The Lakefield – the vaulted ceilings in the main living area create a breathtaking space to entertain, unwind, or come together. The kitchen/dining/living spaces have been opened up completely offering a seamless transition from the kitchen straight through to the great outdoors. The redesigned exterior has been upgraded with modern windows to maximize views and natural light. There is also an option to include an attached garage with ease of access from the foyer.


The Simcoe


Another one of our most popular bungalows, The Simcoe has been given a stylish modern upgrade. Maintaining the classic elements like the incredible wrap-around porch and the three spacious bedrooms, this 1,674 sq.ft. design has had the most dramatic improvement. We’ve opened up the living room, raised it to the same level, and created one big, beautiful, open concept living space. A versatile laundry room/mudroom combo acts as a convenient breezeway connecting the garage to the main home, with options to customize to best match your lifestyle.


The Mapleton


A brand new 1,581 sq.ft. bungalow perfectly suited to a narrow lot, The Mapleton was cleverly designed to separate the home into main living spaces and private spaces. With all bedrooms on one side of the home, and an expansive kitchen, living, and dining room all continuing from the front foyer, entertaining is endlessly convenient. Designed for modern lifestyles, The Mapleton also includes a home office or optional third bedroom to accommodate the whole family.


The Wellington


Designed with flexibility in mind through an efficient floorplan, The Wellington is a 1,671 sq.ft. bungalow with an incredibly versatile laundry/mud room combination at the front of the home. Not only is it a great place to store your Wellies, but this adaptability allows you to have more (or less!) storage, depending on your needs. The three bedrooms are conveniently tucked away on the far side of the house for a quiet, private space, with two full bathrooms including a Primary ensuite. And with a beautiful open concept living space featuring lots of windows for ample natural light, it’s a bright, beautiful family home with a striking exterior to welcome you each day.



The Harrington


Last, but certainly not least, The Harrington is a spacious two-storey home that’s perfect for a narrow lot, boasting four full bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a private office in a spectacular 2,400 sq.ft. What’s more, the stunning modern kitchen includes a Butler’s Pantry just around the corner, for extra storage, an extra sink, and a little extra luxury. Alongside upstairs laundry, a mudroom, and a serene Primary Suite complete with walk-in closet and private 4-piece ensuite, it’s the perfect home for your growing family, with all the flexibility you need.



Now that you’ve been introduced to our incredible new collection, let’s dig into the details! Why did Quality Homes decide to create six new floorplans? Easy. We know that modern lifestyles need modern solutions. The world of design is always changing, and so are the needs of our buyers. We strive to remain at the forefront of the industry as innovative builders, and we can only accomplish that by listening to what our clients have to say, following the market closely, and combining what people want with what people need. It’s a delicate balance to walk, but with our incredible team behind us, nothing is impossible.




Of course, none of this could happen without the talent behind the scenes. You may not know this, but every Quality Home starts in the hands of our phenomenal Drafting Team.


Our Team starts with a concept of a fabulous home that accommodates and enriches the lives of its residents, creating a livable, functional floorplan. Our drafting team then fine-tunes the particulars, ensuring sound construction that exceeds the Ontario Building Code. Together with our amazing Decor & Design Consultant, they embody the Art and Science of Building. It’s their vision that brought our new design collection to life, and their talent that makes every home perfectly tailored to your tastes and structurally sound for generations to come.


Together, every team at Quality Homes works as a well-oiled machine to bring each and every home from conception through to occupancy. As we launch ourselves into a new year with the tenacity and innovation we pride ourselves on, we’re endlessly excited to bring you all brand new opportunities to create the perfect custom home or cottage, tailored to your lifestyle. Start the year off right with Quality Homes.
