How to get started with Beaver Home and Cottages on your Muskoka Building Project

Step 1

Choose a plan from this book, or with your consultant sketch out a plan of your own that includes all the features you want.

Step 2

Home Hardware’s architectural solutions group will provide your consultant with a set of sketches, called quarter prints, that will include the floor plan and elevations (exterior views) of the house. On these quarter prints, changes that you would like to see are marked. That’s called redlining. The sketches are revised accordingly and a new set provided.

Step 3

Review the revised quarter prints to determine if the changes are to your liking. Be sure to ask yourself, and the Home Consultant, all the necessary questions about the house and its layout. You can find a comprehensive list of questions in the booklet Drawing Conclusions, available from your Beaver Home & Cottage Consultant.

Step 4

If additional changes are required, repeat the process by redlining the sketches again. Two full sets of changes are included. Once all your questions are answered and the design reflects your desires, a full set of architectural drawings is completed. Then, let the building begin. A non-refundable deposit that will be applied to your premium material package is required to initiate a preliminary drawing process. Your modified construction drawings are provided as part of your premium material package at no extra charge.

Guaranteed Plans*

Whether you choose a standard model from this book, or have our in-house designers modify a plan to your specifications, the finished construction drawings will meet or exceed the National Building Code of Canada, as well as Provincial Codes in effect at the time the drawings were ordered.

*Valid with a signed and accepted agreement to purchase for a Beaver Home & Cottage Material Supply Package.
