Homebuyers who want freedom and flexibility while building a new home from scratch should check out Prominent Homes in Cochrane’s Greystone.
“They love to be able to customize their home and feel Prominent is very flexible in accommodating requested changes,” said Area Sales Manager at Prominent Homes in Greystone.
“Whether its larger windows or changes to room configurations, we are a smaller builder where our staff are accessible and can be hands-on. Our process allows for flexibility before construction,” she added.
Why not customize your home design for free?
Want a specific layout? Need an additional room? The Prominent Homes team works closely with you, ensuring every detail aligns with your vision, including a design expert who helps you coordinate hundreds of potential combinations of materials and colours for cabinets, fixtures, flooring and finishing details.
“Your home a canvas for your dreams. You have the power to tailor your living space to your unique lifestyle,” explained Savage.
Prominent Homes can respond to any trend and almost any design feature that can help simplify or beautify their customers’ lives.
“They want a home that is a reflection of their dreams, personal style, or unique way of life,” said Savage, adding part of the benefit of choosing a smaller builder like Prominent Homes, is a process that includes accessible relationships with the Prominent team, where buyers are heard and helped, and communication is easy. Staff from nearly every department are available by phone or email.
The company’s operations also lend to its efficiency in build times, beginning with the steps before construction, through coordination and supervision of trades on-site to completion.
Unlike other custom builders who can take up to a year and a half to construct new homes, Prominent offers move-ins within a year of signing an agreement. That means buyers can settle into a new abode swiftly, and start enjoying Cochrane’s sought-after community of Greystone. Families are also acting fast to secure their dream homes before prices rise and interest rates change.
Smaller-sized homes a big deal
Even though the size of the Prominent showhome at Greystone inspires customers to dream big, Savage has observed a huge number of buyers at every stage of life falling in love with the idea of smaller-sized plans.
Among the most efficient designs is Prominent Homes’ Taylor Bay model priced at about $650,000 including lot and GST. It is a leading choice for families for its bright and effective design, captivating retirees seeking simplicity, first-time buyers, or anyone embarking on a new chapter.
Homes designed for flexibility and priced for affordability
With 1,600 sq. ft. on two levels, the efficient size satisfies empty nesters' need for less housework or wasted space. Meanwhile, first-time buyers are keen on affordable quality and features that can accommodate future children.
Almost every buyer is grateful that the attached garage is sized at 22 ft. by 25 ft. and realistically proportioned for popular large trucks.
Oversized garages included for free
“Our standard garage size is big,” said Savage. “Which is a huge relief to all the truck owners - and there are a lot of them – to be able to park in the garage.”
Meanwhile, the aspirational Leeward model is the builders’ 2,267 sq. ft. showhome, which can be built from $770,000 including lot and GST. The model features three bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a bonus room, a main floor home office, a generous mudroom and a walkthrough pantry leading to a front-attached garage. It shows off must-have features families need: a mix of spaces for connecting, privacy, and flexibility for the future.
Space to stay connected to family
Its open-concept main floor is sized for togetherness. Three functions of the kitchen-nook-and-livingroom adjoin into one large room, providing space for daily conversations at meals or downtime. Kids or partners can watch dinner prep unfold from the living room, island or dining table, without getting underfoot of the household chef.
The open style promotes unity, blending daily activities without borders. Homework, meals, or games can overlap. Adults can linger for after-dinner conversations or lounge while watching a show. On warm days, a handy sliding door completes a near-continuous wall of glass on the back of the space. It invites you to step outdoors and unwind on your private exterior deck, where fresh air, grilling, and scenic views create a perfect setting for relaxation.
Boots and clutter banished into a tidy mudroom
Kids can learn self-sufficiency during their morning routines with an orderly and generous mud room, and parents can say amen to clutter-free arrivals with designated coat and boot storage and a walk-through pantry.
Working from home is accommodated with a dedicated office space, allowing you to balance career and family life seamlessly.
Self-care reigns supreme in stylish ensuite baths
Upstairs, a generous amount of space awaits, providing a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. Fashionistas will love the luxury of a spacious walk-in closet, providing ample storage for four seasons worth of clothing and accessories. Self-care can top any homeowners’ agenda in the generously sized ensuite with dual sinks, a deep soaker, and an oversized shower. You can indulge in the lavishness of a 5-piece layout, and transform your daily routine into a spa-like experience.
Meanwhile, a versatile bonus room is a perfect spot for a kids’ hangout zone or for creating a play area, entertainment zone, or cozy reading nook. Parents of young kids appreciate this space outside bedrooms to be near their sleeping children so that they can spend a quiet moment and unwind.
Laundry gruntwork becomes a lighter load
Nearby the bonus room and bedrooms, household chores are simplified with the convenience of an upper-floor laundry room. It cuts down the gruntwork of lugging heavy baskets up or down stairs. A few steps from the bonus room, laundry becomes entertaining when you fold or sort in front of the TV.
Customize your home to your style and desires
With customization at their customers’ fingertips, Prominent has discovered that every family is unique, and even when two families choose the same plan, each desire something different to be revised to fit their lifestyle.
They savor the time spent in their professional design appointments, said Savage. Experts help customers navigate the inspiration customers find online into a clear vision for their future reality, ensuring their home truly reflects their taste.
From perfect colour palettes to hardware and fixtures that complement their style, every decision is personal and expertly guided.
