Structural and Foundation Upgrades (BEP)
2 HR appointment
This first appointment during your Design Centre process will primarily consist of discussing all foundation and structural upgrades available for your home. Using your favourite design inspirations, review upgrade options and compile a list of upgrades you are interested in with one of our Design Consultants. For Single Family Homes, this appointment also includes exterior colour selection! Choose from our professionally-designed packages of siding, stone/brick, and paint colours, etc.
Any structural changes are always subject to approval by our Architecture and Engineering department. Pricing for your quote will be emailed to you within 1-2 weeks of your initial appointment. Items relating to your Building Envelope (structural upgrades) are the first set of decisions you will be asked to make so that drawings can be done. Once you receive your drawings with all the structural changes that you are proceeding with, your Design Consultant will ask you to review them one last time before you finalize your Building Envelope Package. Normally, you would be finalizing your Building Envelope Package (structural) virtually. In-person appointments may be available upon request.
- Your Design Consultant has many available options to customize your dream kitchen, such as pots and pans drawers, glass cabinets, crown moulding and increasing the height of your upper cabinets. An optional custom kitchen design appointment, with a professional Kitchen Designer from Spectrum Kitchens is available upon request for a fee of $500+HST. For purchasers that would like to book a design appointment at Spectrum Kitchens, this will be your next appointment in the Design Process.

Electrical and Interior Colours Selections
2 HR appointment
This is the fun part! You will be going over the lighting plan with your Design Consultant and discuss any electrical upgrades (i.e; potlights, etc.) you are interested in. Next, work with your design consultant to choose interior finishes that complete your vision. Interior finishes include cabinetry, countertops, flooring & more. You will also be discussing kitchen upgrades if you chose not to have a design appointment with our kitchen cabinet supplier, Spectrum Kitchens. Phoenix Homes offers numerous interior design options. Business partnerships with granite and wood wholesalers mean an abundant supply of these materials are available for potential homeowners looking to integrate them into their décor. Quality granite and quartz can be adapted for any application, thanks to state-of-the-art CNC cutting machines at our warehouse and production facility. Any upgrades you are interested in during this appointment will be priced out and emailed to you within 1-2 weeks. Then, you will be asked to confirm all of the electrical upgrades so we can prepare for your drawings ahead of time before your next appointment.
