TPM CUSTOM HOMES
HOW IT WORKS
TPM Custom Homes is a custom home builder based in Etobicoke. We provide construction management services, managing every aspect of the build from start to finish. Clients are provided with project cost transparency on trade and supplier costs, and we charge a flat fee based on the size and scope of the project.
The way we manage projects:
Calls/texts/emails from clients are answered whenever possible and replies issued in a timely fashion
Communication on time and cost overruns and savings will be communicated in advance whenever possible
Clients will be made aware of their role in the project and will have plenty of time and information well in advance so that decisions they need to make do not hold up the project
Work will proceed on site every day, except for weather or permitting/inspection delays
Photos of different aspects of the job will be taken on a regular basis to document progress for all large projects
Trades are calm, respectful, professional, courteous and are very motivated to keep me, and therefore YOU happy
Craig Tyndall founded TPM Custom Homes Inc. after experiencing the joy and accomplishment of building his own custom home in 2009. Armed with a business degree from the Ivey School of Business and fifteen years’ experience in business, technology and entrepreneurial endeavours, he brings a different perspective to building homes. By using technology, solid project management practices and great interpersonal skills, the build process is less stressful and comes in on-time and on-budget.
We specialize in quality homes that are built to last, for owners that are planning to make their home here for the forseeable future.
From new homes to full home renovations and additions, most of our clients have lived in the area for a few years and have fallen in love with our neighbourhood. Trust TPM to build your dream house on budget and on time - we've been building in OUR neighbourhood since 2010.
We can recommend expert architects depending on your style and size of project, or work with existing drawings. Once you have your drawings, the design phase does not end.
We have a number of different interior design recommendations, depending on your requirements.
TPM analyzes the drawings for workflow, cost consideration, impact of utilities, spacing, window and door sizing, wall space and other price vs performance decisions before budgeting.
The budget phase is perhaps the most important to get right in order to have a drama and stress free build. Rather than present you with a low, unrealistic budget that invariably goes over during the build, we ensure our preconstruction and later, construction budgets are highly accurate based on detailed information gathering and realistic allowances. When this is done correctly, the money drama is eliminated from the equation during the build.
BUILD AND MAINTENANCE PHASE
We have done the design, we have approved the budget... sit back and enjoy the build. Some clients are hands off, leaving many decisions to designers. Other clients are very hands on and make many decisions themselves with our guidance. Either way, the build process should be enjoyable. Later, you'll receive a maintenance schedule so that your new home lasts as long as possible in the great condition it was left when the keys were handed over to you.
