What the Heck is an "ADU" and What it Could Mean For You

An ADU is short for Accessory Dwelling Unit. It’s a separate, secondary dwelling that shares a single-family residential lot with the owner’s primary home. People often build an ADU on their property as lodging for an aging relative or temporary homes for those adult children that aren’t quite ready to fly the coop and enter the housing market.

ADUs are the perfect setup for people who desire their own space yet benefit from being near their family.

Energy Efficient Solutions Made Easy

Although Winton Homes makes the process of selecting and standing a brand-new prefab package home straightforward for our customers, there is a lot of work that goes into our designs behind the scenes. Energy efficiency is always top of mind.

Every piece of wood we incorporate into the build is painstakingly considered. It’s a complex process that has evolved over our 40+ years in business. Precision manufacturing, panelized construction, and premium lumber set our B.C. prefab homes apart. 

Top 10 Benefits for Contractors and Developers

As a home building contractor, you're only as good as your reputation within the community you serve.

Winton Homes in Prince George, BC, teams up with contractors across Western Canada to expedite people's homebuilding plans with precision and proficiency.

Determining the Cost of Your New Prefab Home

Buying a home is an exciting moment in anyone’s life. And purchasing one that is brand new makes the experience even more special.

No overdue repairs. No funny smells. No nasty surprises the housing inspector may have missed.

Despite what many people believe, buying a brand-new home isn’t just a luxury reserved for the rich.

Thanks to prebuilt package homes from Winton Homes in Prince George, BC, people looking for a good deal or a more affordable homebuying option have another choice.

Having Trouble Finding Construction Labour? Winton Homes is Your Solution

It’s not easy running a construction business these days, especially when you find yourself short on skilled workers at the job site.

Apprentice registrations are on the decline, and experienced workers are retiring. However, the demand for new home construction continues to rise.  

If you’ve traditionally worked on stick-built homes, it might be worth considering partnering with a company that can save you time and expense on your next project.

This funding, established by the Province of B.C., provides funding for projects that accelerate the availability and affordability of low-carbon building solutions including advanced building components, designs, and new construction methods.

Top 9 Reasons Why Winter Building Works

There are many things to consider when venturing on the path to building your own custom home. Have you ever considered what the benefits could be if you chose to build in the winter?
