Home Building Permits and Planning in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, and the GTA

At Team Shane, we leave nothing to chance. Every project we do throughout the Hamilton, Burlington, Stoney Creek, Dundas, and Ancaster area is carefully planned. Our experience has taught us that there is not a "one-size-fits-all" schedule for renovation projects. As a result, our goal is to look at each project based on the work required to set realistic timelines that allow us to acquire the right permits and plan a schedule that we can commit to with confidence.

Questions to Ask Before the Design Build Process

Before you begin the design building process the first step in your home renovation planning is to ask yourself some questions:

  • What do I like best about my home?
  • What do I need to change/repair in my home right now?
  • What would I like to change about my home within the next few years?
  • What are my long-term goals (5 to 10 years from now) for my home?
  • What are my renovation must-haves?
  • What are my ultimate dream upgrades or improvements?

The answers to your questions will help you determine the scope of your project.

Home Renovation Planning

When we take on your project, we ensure we have the time and team available to meet your timelines. Every project is provided with a dedicated schedule to help manage expectations. Here is a reasonable planning schedule:

8 to 12 Months Out

This is the stage where you can do some homework. Collect pictures from magazines or online searches to help create a vision of what you would like your own project to achieve. Begin your search for a building company, starting with the team at Team Shane. Be sure to check for references and that you feel a good fit with the team before committing. This will make the entire project more enjoyable.

6 to 8 Months Out

Set up your initial consultation and meeting with your chosen contractor to discuss your project in detail. This is one of the steps we consider to be the most important. We will create a checklist based on your desires so we can come up with a realistic plan and budget to present to you for approval.

4 to 6 Months Out

This is the time when your plans are refined. This allows you to review our plans and consider the budget. We use 3-Dimensional visuals and virtual reality to help you see the end results of our designs so you can make approvals with confidence.

2 to 4 Months Out

The scope of work is finalized based on the final design and budget. This is the time when you can start to prepare for construction including things such as finding a storage space for your belongings during the process.

1 to 2 Months Out

This is the time we arrange for building permit requirements for house renovations to ensure everything is managed properly. We acquire home renovation permits before we begin construction, so it is one less thing to worry about.
