Your Needs are More than a List of Wishes

When the Calgary real estate market doesn’t meet your family’s needs, build your own custom home from the ground up. A home built custom to you means no need for fixer-uppers, no surprises behind the walls and certainly no compromises for the look, function and location you want.

Most importantly, it means you’re not confined to the limits of a pre-designed home.

Want a western-facing balcony to soak in the sunset while you enjoy an evening glass of wine? A movie theatre for family nights? Or a three-car garage to make room for your vehicles and bikes? It’s all possible when you work with a Calgary builder who understands how your family’s life will look in your new home.

Melanson Homes is your Calgary custom home builder – focusing on inner-city homes and acreage builds.

Finding the Perfect Match

Most homes weren’t built with you in mind. They were built with everyone in mind. So when it comes to finding something that’s pre-built with enough bedrooms for each of your children, enough space for guests, exceptional outdoor living space and that reflects your shining personality (hello, secret bookcase doors) it can force you into a mould you weren’t
meant to fit.

When you reflect on the limitations of your current home, whether you have too much space or not enough space, you realize building your own retreat has never sounded more appealing.

Give yourself that gas-range stove that’s perfect for hosting gatherings and cooking up your signature dish, the mudroom that considers Fido with his own standing-height bathtub and we couldn’t forget the expansive yard that has room for campfires under the stars.

Your dream home is possible when you’re the one who dreams of the details. Your Calgary custom inner-city home or acreage home is feasible, with the right partner.

Let us bring your home to life

In-House Design

Expertly blend function and style with the help of our in-house designer who pulls from his years of experience working on hundreds of houses to craft you a home that’s like no other. Our designer will work directly with you to figure out what is most important to you and your lifestyle and then incorporate that into your home design.

We’ll take the time to understand what you want and need in your custom home. Better yet, we’ll 3D render your designs before we get started so you can see your new home come to life and see how it can better function for you.

If you want your friends to walk into your home at your next dinner party and say “this really looks like you” or “this is amazing” then you’re in the right hands.

What home style are you?

Whether you choose a lot in the city or on the outskirts, we have layout options to match

Acreage Home

Build your home on the outskirts of the city with an expansive yard and awe-inspiring views. Choose a sprawling two-storey home or a lofted bungalow that you can make your own by adding a three-car garage, large mudroom, or whatever else you can dream up with the help of our in-house designer.

Carriage or Laneway Home

Keep your family or renters closeby without having to live with them by building a carriage or laneway home. We’ll design and build a completely separate unit on your existing property so you can find long-term tenants, use it as an Airbnb or invite your extended family to move in.

Inner-City Home

Build a custom home in the neighbourhood you know and love. Once you’ve chosen your lot, we’ll design and build you an infill with car-stopping curb appeal. You can even opt to duplex the home or split your lot with a separate unit for rent or sale where you can actually choose your neighbours!

““Their design team helped us create the farmhouse style we were looking for, as well as plan out a beautiful and functional home for our growing family. Through the permitting and building process, they worked extremely hard to ensure everything stayed on track both with timelines and budgets and continuously communicated with us on any updates or changes. We continued to be impressed by the speed and quality of work that was being done and we’re completely blown away with the final product. We highly recommend Melanson Renovations and will certainly use them for projects in the future!””
