Building Your Custom Home

Home Building Simplicity at Tobiano

Building a quality home within a celebrated master-planned community is easier than you might expect.

Tobiano‚Äôs guidelines for Site Development, Architectural Design and Landscape Design function as a set of minimum standards, established in response to the climate, terrain, and landscape of the Kamloops Lake region.  These guidelines provide a step by step process for lot purchasers to realize their vision.  The comprehensive guidelines provide direction in the planning, design and construction of all site improvements to ensure compatibility with the surrounding natural environment.

Here is a simplified version of the build process.  We will guide you in your path.

  1. Choose your lot – Determine your needs and wants and know your budget.  We will help you narrow your search based on these parameters.
  2. Arrange for financing if applicable – Usually funds are advanced in intervals as your house is being built.  Draws are typically made at 35%, 65% and 100% completion.
  3. Choose a plan – Books, magazines and web searches are all good resources for getting started.
  4. Hire a design professional to draft your plans – All plans must be approved by Tobiano Developments then submitted to the TNRD for permitting.
  5. Enter into an agreement with a contractor to build – Our staff can direct you to one of our 6 preferred builders.
  6. Contract a landscaper.

Many residents choose to rent in one of the strata developments while they build so they can monitor progress as this rewarding new adventure unfolds.
