How do I design my home/cottage?

We always get approached with excited people who can’t wait to build their perfect home or cottage but haven’t seen their ideal floor plan.  Well, this is very common  because every home we do is totally custom.  There are no 2 Confederation homes that are the same and best of all, there is NO additional charge for a custom plan.

Dreams to Reality

We offer numerous floor plans and designs in our Design Gallery but they are never ordered ‘as is.’  It’s used as more of a starting point to get ideas, explore options, and get the creative juices flowing about bedroom sizes, kitchen layouts, dining room options, covered decks, entry porches, timber elements, etc.  Design is all a part of the process here at Confederation and we have our own in-house Design Centre where we take your ideas and put them to paper.  So feel free to shrink, expand, combine, or start from scratch, it’s all the same to us.  Once we have the first draft of your sketches we will bounce them back and forth making changes until you see ‘the perfect plan for you.’  It’s at that point where we do a complete 3D Virtual Walkthrough so you can see every room and every piece of furniture.  You are welcome to do this in person with our Principal Designer at our Head Office, or online in the comforts of your home.

We do a lot of preliminary work with you during the Design Phase of your project so there are no surprises during the build.  You literally know what your Confederation will look like before a single log or timber is cut!

Stay tuned as the plans in our Design Centre are all being updated with the latest in design software!
