How we approach making the perfect custom home for you is essential in doing it well. Before pen goes to paper, we want to take the necessary time to understand your thoughts on a home, how you'll use it and all the nuanced details that complete the puzzle. This way, we're fully immersed in what your new home dream is, and how we can make it a reality.
What is the process that Kanvi follows?
A common issue with those exploring new home builders in Edmonton is there's a lack of process presented. What are the steps we take? Where do you as a client need to be involved? What's happening when you haven't heard from us in a while?
These are all questions that are important for us to provide answers for. We review the processes and the steps and will introduce you to our online portal that you get during the construction process.

Open riser stairs with hardwood and glass railing are standard with Kanvi Homes.
What does Kanvi believe should be included in a new home?
Each home builder has a different philosophy when it comes to standard inclusions. These are the items that are above and beyond the Alberta Building Code and this is where home builders either choose to stand out or blend in. The Alberta Building Code is the minimum standard and focuses only on structure and function with low results.
From things like the cabinet selection, to type of concrete, reviewing what's important on the inclusions helps you determine who can best do your next home the way you want it.
We review the top 10 items our clients tell us are the main reasons they pick Kanvi. Items such as Delta MS foundation wrap, Oversized Energy Star PVC triple pane windows and finishing the stairwell to the basement are all examples of this.
We've got a quick and easy questionnaire that's designed to find out about the tangible features that are important to you. Is there a cool feature that you must have? How about enough space for a growing family, or even a space for your parents to live in the home? What about a walkout home with the full kitchen in the basement, or a master bedroom that has an open view to the great room? And yes, we've done both of those.
How about which way do you want your backyard to face? Or have you considered a Jack and Jill style upper washroom. These are all items during this part of the discovery meeting we discuss.
A wall of windows like the above is part of the conversation during the discovery phase.
