The Barr Process

You’ve checked out the competition and compared products and pricing and you’ve chosen Barr Homes to build your new homestead. Great choice, but what comes next? If you’ve never purchased a new home before, the process can be a bit of a mystery. The professionals at Barr Homes are here to lead you through the home buying process step by step.

At Barr Homes, you can choose from a great selection of home plans, any of which can be customized to fit yours and your family’s needs. If there’s something you want that we don’t offer, please just ask. We can handle most any request you might have.

When you purchase from Barr Homes you also have the option of upgrading your new home to be a registered Energy Star® home.

Whatever type of home you choose to build with Barr, it will be built with attention to detail by some of the top trades in Kingston. Once we receive your written offer, we will meet with you in a pre-construction meeting. This is your opportunity to select interior and exterior finishes and colors. Some of these choices include but are not limited to shingle color, brick and siding selections for the exterior of your home and flooring, cabinet and countertop selections for the interior.

Barr offers a wide selection of quality finishes as a standard but keep in mind that you can choose to upgrade to hardwood flooring, ceramic tile, a fireplace or even a classic stone exterior. We will work with you on all those details to make your house your perfect home. Options are only limited by your imagination and your budget. Barr Homes can even customize your new home to provide greater accessibility if you have mobility issues.


The process of building a new home typically takes 4-5 months from the time an offer is firm to the day of possession, however, Barr Homes takes great pride in their track record of completing your new home earlier then promised and most of the time we give the new homeowners the opportunity to get into their new home earlier than promised.


At Barr Homes, after your offer and selections have been completed, the construction process begins. Each new home follows the same general path to completion.

At this point in the process, the homeowner is asked to visit the home. This gives you the chance to make any changes that may be required and we also take this time for you to layout where you want your bell and cable outlets located as well as flooring transitions. At that point, construction continues. It usually takes about 10 weeks from your framing inspection until your house is completed.
