About

Kingston Company Setting the “Barr” Higher in the Homebuilding Industry

It was 70 years ago that Gordon and Ethel Barr started their excavation company with a single piece of equipment and a promise to themselves and to their customers to provide excellence in excavation, water and sewer services.
Today, Barr Homes lives up to this dedication to quality with every home we build, says General Manager Keith Jamieson, and quality and customer service are our top priorities.
Barr Homes has carved a nice place for itself in the Kingston Homebuilders Community.
In the first year we built a handful of homes, now we’re up to approximately 50 per year. A major part of that success comes from our attention to the customer’s needs and to our high quality trade partners.
At Barr Homes we work very closely with the customers and we get them involved right from the start with a pre-construction meeting to get all the little details worked out.

Our Homes

Barr Homes is a proud member of the Kingston and Amherstview communities

As a member of the Kingston Home Builders Association, Barr Homes participates in the Annual Parade of Homes, showcasing the talents of local builders. Barr Homes is a major sponsor of the yearly home show. From supporting children’s teams in hockey and soccer to providing opportunities for local high school students to learn the ins and outs of home building, Barr Homes gives back to the community that we are helping build.
Barr Homes contributed to the new Soccer plex located on County Road 6 between Amherstview and Odessa. We are creating communities with homes to live in and nearby recreational facilities to enjoy. Amherstview is a growing and vibrant community featuring the beautiful waterfront of Lake Ontario and plenty of activities for all ages.

The BARR Difference

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  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.

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 talk about the  available  interior and exterior finishes for your new home.

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 a 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 between 5-6 months. Barr Homes takes great pride in their track record of completing your new home on time.

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.
