Building on Your Acreage Lot

Acreage ownership comes with amazing benefits from the unobstructed views to the freedom to enjoy the great outdoors anytime! But acreage building is more complex than custom home building in Calgary. As a custom acreage builder, Cornerstone Homes can help you navigate through the complexities of acreage construction.

We start the acreage building process with on-site meetings at your acreage lot where we can help you visualize the best location for the construction of your home. We will assess the land’s natural drainage, the best place to situate the home to capture the surrounding views and best location for the accompanying requirements of an acreage estate, such as the septic field and extended driveways.

As custom acreage builders we complete all the necessary permitting in conjunction with the building code requirements. We take care of bringing gas, power and telephone services to the home-site. We offer complete professional septic design and installation on your custom acreage estate, as well as site grading and roadworks.

    Getting around the legislation in this matter is really hard, as you need to get the plans approved by the relevant authorities. This can sometimes take a lot of time to come through.

      Thanks for your comment! As a custom home builder we are experts in taking care of all the paperwork and do all the work required to obtain both development and building permits whether it is an acreage build or a home within a town or in the City of Calgary. Along with blueprints that detail the 9.36 energy requirements, the local municipal govt will also require full engineering, truss and joist layouts, proof of our Alberta government builder licence, and enrolment of the project in a warranty program (Cornerstone Homes is a long standing member of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program). As a custom home builder in Calgary and area and as an acreage builder, we prepare all these documents and others required and also work on detailed septic design and water services if required for the project. Thanks again for commenting!
