When you’re thinking about a new home, a world of possibilities opens before you. With a custom home it gets even better. Instead of living with the decisions made by a builder or previous owner, you can choose what your new home will be. Waterfront or country estate? Formal or informal? Traditional or contemporary?
Choose your home
At Ducon Contractors and Homes Ltd. we realize deciding the location and style of a new home is just the start. Depending on your budget, a custom home offers you a rich array of design and finishing choices. For some, this may seem intimidating, but in the end it all boils down to one main question: what does home mean to you? Ultimately, your new custom home is the chance to build more than just a solid foundation and a functional, appealing structure. It’s your opportunity to build a living space that supports you and your family’s lifestyle.
Choose your lifestyle
Imagine the ways a custom home can fit into what’s most important to you. Layout, size of rooms, and features can be chosen to suit your needs.
If entertaining with friends and family is a must, equipping your kitchen with the right counter space, fixtures, lighting and cupboards will improve your daily experience. Choices such as granite countertops and custom cabinetry will enhance both the appeal and functionality of one of the highest traffic areas in any home.
Will outdoor living feature prominently in what you do? An outside kitchen and living space with easy accessibility to power and natural gas or propane hook-ups for your barbeque can be created with carefully situated decks, patio, and landscaping.
If you’re a movie buff, a custom home gives you the chance to build the ultimate home theatrewired for the best quality sound, video and internet/satellite connectivity.
Perhaps you or your children are active or aspiring musicians? Your wish list might include a music room with proper acoustic qualities and enough room to house that baby grand piano for practicing or mini-recitals.
Maybe you’re self-employed and require enough space for an attractive and functional home office. With a custom home, you can choose a layout which supports your need to receive and meet with clients, yet still preserves your family’s privacy.
“Three years ago, we hired Ducon to put an addition on my veterinary practice. They did a fantastic job, dealing with all the problems during construction promptly, creating exactly what they were asked to do. When we were planning on having a new house built, there was really only one choice of contractor for us. Again Ducon did a fantastic job and we have the home we have dreamed about.
“They worked with us through the planning phase as well as all stages of the construction process. All of our custom work, including a custom floor and heating system as well as a hand-built custom fireplace and balcony walk-around in our great room are exactly what we wanted. The high quality finish work we expected from them was delivered in spades. We would recommend them to anyone who wants a trouble-free, smooth custom home-building experience!”

We’re home design and construction specialists
Whatever features you may dream of for your custom home, you need to plan in order to make it happen. That’s where Ducon comes in. We’ll work with you, either to your own existing building plans or by listening to your needs and developing a design to make your dream home a reality. Once everything is ready, we’ll take those plans from foundation to a finished home.
Which brings us back to where your home will be. We can build on your own property or we have several attractive building lots available for purchase in the Bay of Quinte Region including Prince Edward County, one of Ontario’s fastest-growing wine regions. If a fully equipped wine-cellar is one of those features on your wish list, we can build that for you too. We’ve worked with some local PEC wineries so we understand the requirements that oenophiles desire for safely housing fine wines and other spirits.
No matter what choices you make, at Ducon, we partner with you in building a sustainable life — structurally, environmentally and financially. All our homes are warranted by Tarion Warranty Corporation and built with the most durable and environmentally sustainable materials on the market. Being financially attentive, we meticulously tender each project and partner with you to develop a design that fits within your budget.
