New Home Construction

Building a new home gives you a unique opportunity — to create exactly the home you want from the ground up. At Labrador we work with you every step of the way, from design to building plan, foundation to finish. We’re available when you need us to answer your questions, address your concerns, and make the construction process as smooth and efficient as possible.

Our skilled in-house carpentry team helps us minimize the use of subcontractors, so we keep your costs lower. And when we do work with subcontractors, we choose from the best — those plumbers, electricians, and other skilled craftspeople who’ve satisfied our customers again and again. We want you to be thrilled with your new home. And we want to schedule your move-in day as soon as possible.

We’re ready to talk about your new home construction project, so contact us today.

Design Services

There’s a reason they call it your dream home. In our design process, we start with your vision. How big do you want to build? What are your ideas about use of space and light? What features are must-haves? What ones might you live without? How important is energy efficiency? How will you use each room in your home?

At Labrador it’s about dialogue and collaboration. You bring your ideas about what makes the perfect home. We bring years of successful home design and construction. Together, we’ll create a full set of construction documents that maximizes your comfort, incorporates your aesthetic, and meets your budgetary needs.

At Labrador we have a strong commitment to sourcing local materials, minimizing waste, and maximizing efficiency. And we’re ready to help you work through decisions about everything from heating and cooling systems to insulation, lighting, and solar vs. conventional electric. We can provide building performance testing and even enroll your home in the Energy Star Program.
