Check out this modern and Cost Efficient Home in Scarborough Ontario. These days it;s far too easy to go over budget on a homer renovation or build, with new technology and building strategies, and long construction times and high quality materials. This house managed to keep things under budget by using prefabricated floor, roof and wall components that were assembled on site. Not only did this save the home owners $10,000 but the structure is stronger, uses less waste & energy and the installation was much quicker (leading to lower construction costs). Also, the existing foundation was used and materials were salvaged from other job sites. Research and a knowledgable developer can help save costs.
The home uses a lot of glass to take advantage of the surroundings, and kept things fairly minimal inside to make the space open and modern. Check out more pictures below.
