Energy-Efficient Systems

Home Gym

A dedicated home gym offers convenience and privacy for your daily workouts. Consider incorporating features like soundproofing, high ceilings for tall equipment or exercises, and a wall-mounted TV for guided workouts.

Chef’s Kitchen

Many homeowners relish the idea of a gourmet or chef's kitchen. This can include professional-grade appliances, a large island for meal preparation, walk-in pantries, and custom cabinetry. You can also add unique touches such as a pot filler faucet, built-in espresso machine, or a wine refrigerator.

Outdoor Living Space

Calgary's sunny summer days and picturesque winters make a well-designed outdoor living space a must-have. This could be an extended patio, a deck with a fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, or even a beautifully landscaped garden with a tranquil water feature.

Spa-Like Bathrooms

Transform your bathroom into a personal retreat with spa-inspired features. Heated floors, freestanding tubs, rainfall showers, and his-and-her vanities are just some of the luxurious features that can turn your bathroom into a personal oasis.

Smart Home Technology

Smart home technology provides comfort, security, and efficiency. Consider installing smart thermostats, security cameras, automated lighting, or a whole-home sound system. As Calgary custom home builders, we can seamlessly integrate these technologies into your home design.

Home Office

With remote work becoming more common, a dedicated home office is a valuable addition. This space can be customized with built-in bookshelves, adequate task lighting, and plenty of desk space to create a comfortable and productive environment.

Indoor-Outdoor Living

Seamless indoor-outdoor living is a sought-after feature in Calgary custom homes. Large glass doors, a covered outdoor living area, a sunroom or 4-season room can create a sense of continuity between your indoor and outdoor spaces.

Custom Wine Cellar

For wine enthusiasts, a custom wine cellar is a dream come true. It could be a simple, temperature-controlled space in the basement or a glass-enclosed cellar that doubles as a feature piece in your dining room.

Heated Driveways

Given Calgary's snowy winters, a heated driveway can save a lot of effort and time in snow removal. This feature, while not common, is a unique addition that offers convenience during the winter months.
