If you are looking to refresh a tired home, make your mark on a home you just bought, or build an entirely new one suited to your tastes, we are here to help.
Build your dream home.
Whether you are looking for traditional, transitional, modern or your own unique style, our team can fully customize your project to make your dream a reality. Our experienced team has the resources to realise your vision, no matter if you are starting with simply an idea and a blank page, or you already have architectural plans in hand.
Partnering with Strickland Mateljan Design Associates – an architecture firm based in Oakville – Fulcrum Custom Builders can help you with lot selection and design, ensuring that your budget and design objectives are baked into the project from the very beginning.
If you are already working with an architect, we will be happy to work with them to make your plans come to life.
Either way, once your property and design are finalised, we will then run with the project – from existing home demolition or new home excavation to the constuction of your new home.
Our fully managed services cover all aspects of a new home build – from the land selection and architectural/interior design mentioned above, to engineering, permitting, demolition, construction and soft and hard landscaping. We believe in the personal touch – all of these services are managed through a single, consistent point of contact so that the building of your home is as simple and stress free as possible.
Turn unused space into something amazing.
You’ve found the perfect neighbourhood. The location is ideal for your lifestyle and needs, but for some reason, your home is not. It could be that with new additions to your family, your home simply isn’t big enough for all of you. Or, after years of wear and tear it is starting to look a bit worn and dated. Or that you’d like to invest in a new neighbourhod and you’ve found a house with good bones.
Whatever the case, Fulcrum Custom Builders can help you realise the potential in your home while making sure it is in keeping with your budget and it’s possible market value.
We can help you add value to your home by improving the layout to make it flow better and feel more spacious, expanding it to fit a growing family, refreshing old and tired spaces, and / or adding modern technology to make your home more comfortable and reduce running costs. From adding a second storey to installing new external cladding on your home, our team has you covered.
Create a garden of distinction.
Your garden is often the first thing people see of your home. We can help you put the finishing touches on your property using hard and soft landscaping. From the driveway, to the walkway, to the patio, we can install interlocking brick or natural stone elements that are both functional and pleasing to the eye. Water features, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces will add interest and make your outdoor space a second living room during the warm summer months.
Experienced in custom carpentry, deck building and the installation of irrigation systems, lighting systems and retaining walls, our team will build a garden to match the home of your dreams.
We will work directly with you to design and execute your landscaping installation from start to finish.
Design and build your own idyllic retreat.
Once you have life in the city organised, you may find that you sometimes need to get away from it all – either for a fun weekend with friends, or to have a quiet retreat away from all the hustle and bustle.
Fulcrum Custom Builders is led by Trevor Hopson, who got started in construction in Muskoka. While expanding his work to include Haliburton and now the Greater Toronto Area, Trevor maintains his cottage country roots with local contacts, designers and team members to deliver premier cottage design and build services in the area.
Following and guiding you through every step of the process, Trevor’s familiarity with the area can give special insight into the best sites available, and can assist you with the entire site selection process, so that your custom-built cottage is in the perfect location.
Similar to the services listed above, we can help you design and build your cottage from the ground up, work from your architects plans, or help you renovate a dated cottage so that it better suits your needs (to inlude decks, docks and / or boathouses), while adding landscaping for the perfect finishing touch.
