Building a Home is Easy

Building a Home is Easy,
with Emerald Park Homes

Have you ever considered building a new home, but weren't sure where to begin? It can be easier than you might think, but don't ask us, ask our customers!

The first steps in building involve identifying your potential budget, and selecting an area or areas that you might want to live, as well as looking at how this will affect your future home. 
The space you choose will have a large impact on the design of your home, and the community you choose should provide a comfortable space for you and your family to grow.

The next step is to speak to builders in the area(s) to identify which lots are available, and select a suitable floor plan or have a general idea of square footage and overall design. 

As a builder in Regina and area for over 25 years, some of the many reasons we encourage people to build in the White City area are the larger lots, extra spacing between houses, and lower property taxes, which will accommodate a very wide range of designs and lifestyles.

Once you've selected a lot and a builder, then the fun begins! 

If you have been out to look at show-homes, have design ideas, pictures, or rough sketches of floor plans, Emerald Park Homes can help bring your ideas to life, without breaking the bank.

Ever imagined the perfect kitchen, or thought of how you would decorate your new home, but think it is too expensive? With the current used housing prices, you may be surprised at how affordable a custom designed home can be.

The next steps are up to you, whether you want that beautiful hardwood floor you saw in a magazine, or a sturdy laminate that will stand the test of time with little to no maintenance. 

When building an Emerald Park Home, you simply don't have to worry about the home being properly sealed and insulated, the quality of the materials being used, or how things are being done 'behind the walls'. Our team of professionals goes the extra mile to ensure that you get the kind of house that you expect from a quality custom home-builder.

Building Homes to a Higher Standard
Emerald Park Homes celebrates our first year as a Holmes Approved Builder

 It has been an exciting year for our team at Emerald Park Homes as we worked together with the Holmes Approved Home Program to ensure that our homes are "Built Right, from the ground up". The last three show-homes in White City and Pilot Butte have been Holmes Approved and we are now building another in Regina, bringing this type of quality construction into a larger market.

 During this year, we have made some changes in our construction products that have been recommended and endorsed by the Holmes Group to provide our customers with simply better homes. In January, we met with Mike Holmes himself, at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas to discuss the program and its future development in Canada, along with the latest developments and technologies in home construction.

After 25 years of building custom homes, and 35 years in the construction industry, we are very proud to be a Trusted Regina, Holmes Approved Builder, not only building houses, but building homes to a higher standard, designed to last for generations. If you live in Regina, White City, Pilot Butte or anywhere within a 100 mile radius, choosing the right builder was never easier

Building a new home should be a fun and exciting experience, and Emerald Park Homes, together with the Holmes Approved Homes Program, works very hard to make that happen. When you build or buy an Emerald Park Home, you can trust that everything behind the walls is built right, so you can focus on designing a space to suit your lifestyle, and choosing the right products for your new home.  

We are also a proud member of the Saskatchewan New Home Warranty Program, which not only gives you peace of mind, that, if something does go wrong, somebody will be there to fix the problem, but that your builder is financially viable, and has the resources to properly address any problems with your new home.

Building a new home is a team effort, and we are very proud to work with the very best craftsmen and industry leaders. Being a member of the Holmes Approved Homes program not only ensures that our houses are built to the highest of standards, but allows us to keep up with the latest advances in building technologies, research and development, building safer, stronger and more durable homes.

Contact us at emeraldparkhomes@sasktel.net or call (306)781-3383 to speak with the builder about available lots, or to book an appointment.

See the Holmes Approved Homes website for more information on the program.

A Message from MIKE HOLMES, Canada’s Most Trusted Contractor

Letter of Support
 I am proud to welcome Emerald Park Homes into the Holmes Approved Homes program as my first Partner in Regina. Why? Because they understand that building a home means building your future, and they care.

Emerald Park Homes is an honest builder with honest values. Garry’s been in the business for over 30 years—I’ve been in the business for over 30 years. They own a family business. So do I. We understand the same principles of building right. We share the same values when it comes to proper construction, and what that means for you and your family. 

What does it mean to own an Emerald Park Holmes Approved Custom home? It means healthy indoor air, better insulation; energy-efficiency, so you save money every month; a watertight, airtight system; fire-resistance, mould-resistance and better sound protection. And it means everything that Emerald Park Homes brings to the table. That’s quality craftsmanship, award-winning service, and they work with you every step-of-the-way. In fact, they want you involved because they know that your input helps build a better home. You set the priorities. They make it happen.

And the best part? They let their homes speak for themselves. Plus, my inspectors come in and examine your house from start to finish. They document everything they see so you can focus on creating a home that’s perfect for you and your family—we make sure its built right.

Bottom line: When you buy a Holmes Approved Emerald Park home, you are buying a home that’s built to last. Peace of mind is what we’re about. Building right is what we’re about. Giving you a home that is healthy, strong, protected—and looks good, too—this is what we’re about.

Do you really get what you give? I believe it. And together, Emerald Park Homes and I are setting a new standard that's taking residential construction to the next level—and it starts with your home.

Mike Holmes
President, The Holmes Group
