What’s included

Every Great North Homes package is customizable to your desired finishes and budget.  However, it is important to have a starting point and therefore we provide a list of specifications regularly included in each package.  You may want to upgrade or compromise depending on your wish list or budget   – another advantage of a Great North Homes package!

We also guarantee that the right quantity of material required to build your home or cottage will be provided.  This minimizes your risk of inaccurate quantity take-offs from a contractor or local lumber yard.
