Selecting your desired features for the kitchen, dining area and other rooms in your new East Abbotsford home, from hardwood flooring and tray ceiling style to window coverings and shelving material, is as easy as clicking your computer mouse, thanks to the My Timberlane program.

Design your dream home from the comfort of your kitchen

New user-friendly online program makes it easy to customize your new-build Abbotsford home

Creating a custom home can be a gruelling process, requiring your close attention every step of the way, from design through construction, to ensure nothing gets missed and the budget stays within your expectations.

But what if you could select the hardwood flooring, shower tile, blinds and more for your new home and know the final price of your choices while sitting at your kitchen table with your laptop? It is possible, thanks to a new program designed by Abbotsford’s own Algra Bros.

Making home design easy and fun

Timberlane, a 59-unit neighbourhood in development on Sumas Mountain, is the first of Algra’s residential projects to make this user-friendly system available. It’s designed to drastically cut the time you need to spend designing the home of your dreams, and streamline construction so everyone involved – from you to the subtrade contractors – is on the same page. It also minimizes the potential for errors.

“The system eliminates a lot of the questions and concerns you might have when you’re buying a new-build home,” says Algra art director and marketing man Jon Kinneman. “Plus, you don’t have that worry of having to hire an electrician or floor layer, for example, to install the options you’ve chosen.”

After checking out the available finishes and options in the show home in East Abbotsford, Kinneman adds, buyers will know what to look for online.

More choices than your typical spec home

The interactive “My Timberlane” feature allows buyers to select their desired options, room by room. In all, there’s four steps to creating your custom-made home:

  1. Pick a floor plan – Whether you have a growing family or are a single or couple looking to downsize or get into the market, one of the four designs available can suit your needs.
  2. Choose a style – With two different overall styles to decide on, you can choose the one that best fits your personality or preferred colour scheme.
  3. Get specific on your customizing – From kitchen features that include wood accents, to living room feature wall colour choices, fireplace options, bedroom and bathroom colour schemes and blinds, entertainment elements – there’s even an option to install an elevator – you’ve got many ways to make your new home unique to you. And the great thing is, listed prices include installation!
  4. Review your choices – Once you’ve completed the fun part of the process – choosing the look and feel of your new home – look things over to ensure the cost and choices match your expectations, needs and desires. Then an Algra Bros. rep will help you finalize the sale.

To find out more, book a time to tour the show home or scroll down the same web page to Timberlane to take a first glance at the designs. An additional showhome is opening Feb. 6 nearby. You can also follow Algra Bros. on Facebook.
