Value Engineering

Value engineering is defined as performance divided by cost. If you maximize performance, or reduce cost, it increases value! This is the most important step in the planning of your new home.

A Paradigm Shift in New Home Construction

“Prefabricated” or “Factory Framed” homes have come a long way from the days of a Sears mail order home or a time when the word “prefabricated” may have elicited thoughts of an inferior structure. Gone is the misconception that prefabricated homes are cheaply made with limited design flexibility and finish options. Today’s prefabricated home is fully customizable with a vast array of finish options to make your home just that, your home.

WinWall Passive Panel

UNBC’s new Wood Innovation Research Lab gave our team an opportunity to embrace innovation and creativity. We were excited to be part of an energy efficient building within our local community of Prince George, British Columbia. Taking what is typically a floor truss and rotating to a thick exterior wall, our designers engaged out of the box thinking during this rewarding challenge. With the northern climate & Passive House energy standards in mind, our team engineered and manufactured 40 one-of-a-kind wall panels.

Winton Homes & Cottages - Some Assembly Required

One of the most common misconceptions about Winton Homes is that we are a modular home company. Winton Homes are panelized homes and not completely manufactured homes. Winton homes & cottages are built in components consisting of floors, walls & trusses that are manufactured with total precision with state-of-the-art technology. 

All the prebuilt components, along with windows, doors & exterior finishing materials, are delivered just in time, to maximize build efficiency. Much like conventional home construction, the components are constructed on site. 

How Much Is A Prefab Home?

This is not always an easy question to answer as there are many factors that impact construction costs. The cost to build and finish a move-in ready home is dependent on how you’re building and where you are building.  Will you be building yourself, acting as your own General Contractor and hiring out sub-trades or hiring a GC to manage the entire project?  Are you building within city limits or rural, remote or semi-remote? 

New name for the Homeowner Protection Office

The Homeowner Protection Office has changed their name to Licensing and Consumer Services!


Via BC Housing

We’ve changed our name to Licensing and Consumer Services

Since joining BC Housing in April 2010, we maintained a separate identity to ensure a smooth transition. But we’ve fully integrated into BC Housing and retired the HPO name and logo. It’s a new name but our services are the same.

Building An Energy Efficient Home

A few years ago, Winton engaged in extensive research to develop a super insulated wall. A double wall system was developed, reviewed and sealed through an engineering firm. 

The Winton Energy Wall is a double wall system that yields a total insulation value of R-34 versus R-22 for a conventional wall assembly. 

Benefits of the Winton Energy Wall:

- 35% less heat loss than conventional wall
- Cost effective option for increased R-value
- Comfortable
