A NEW ERA OF HOMEBUILDING

Exceptional, architectural custom homes for a fraction of the cost and time.

The Problem

We still build houses the same way we did over 100 years ago. In an era of innovation and transformative shifts, construction has been left behind.

LABOUR INTENSIVE

RISING PRICES

COST UNCERTAINTY

LONG TIMELINES

LABOUR INTENSIVE

Labor constitutes 60% of house costs, compared to 10% for cars.

RISING PRICES

Homebuilding costs have surged by 51% since 2020.

COST UNCERTAINTY

85% of projects blow the budget, with an average overrun of 27%.

LONG TIMELINES

On average, projects are 2 months late compared to the original estimate.

Building a home is expensive, slow, and full of unknowns.
It’s time for a change.

Welcome to the era of custom home assembly.

A better way to build.

Take Place homes are assembled from a proprietary kit of high-quality, precision-engineered, purpose-built components, all the way from the structural beams to door jambs.

The result is a stunning, high quality home, delivered for a fixed price, so you don’t need to worry about cost overruns.

FAQ

How is Take Place different than other prefab / modular construction methods?

keyboard_arrow_down

Take Place homes are built from a comprehensive kit of prefabricated, ready-to-install components. Different than most modular construction approaches, we’ve designed our components to be completely inter-compatible and flat-packable, to reduce shipping costs, allow for greater customizability, and maintain quick and predictable assembly on site.

Are Take Place homes customizable?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes! We believe that a great home is only great if it responds to the land its on and the needs of its inhabitants. Every single Take Place home is tailored to the client and site as a fully complementary service.

What are the dimensions of the home?

keyboard_arrow_down

Take Place homes are customizable in size and layout, but our first system, Nokta, is two storeys tall and 20' wide, but customizable in length anywhere from 25' long to 100+ feet long. You can choose how much second storey living space you want, and the rest will be open to the 23' high cathedral ceilings.

Is there a single storey version?

keyboard_arrow_down

Our first system, Nokta, will always be most economical when there is some living area on the second floor. Our second system will be a narrower, single storey system, and will be available in 2025.

Who builds the homes?

keyboard_arrow_down

We work with local authorized builders to complete on-site assembly.

Can I assemble it myself?

keyboard_arrow_down

The assembly of a Take Place home requires heavy machinery and construction experience, and would be challenging for a homeowner unless they were a contractor themselves. However, we intend to make System 2 able to be assembled by a handy homeowner.

Where is Take Place available?

keyboard_arrow_down

Take Place is currently available in Manitoba and British Columbia. We are actively working to expand our delivery and install network, and if you have a project anywhere else in Canada, don’t hesitate to reach out!

How long does it take to get a Take Place home?

keyboard_arrow_down

The design, permitting and manufacturing phase typically takes about 2-3 months, and the site assembly typically takes about 3-5 months.

How much does a Take Place home cost?

keyboard_arrow_down

Take Place homes start around $310 CAD per square foot, depending on location, size and finishes. This includes everything except for the foundation, delivery to site, and site hookups.

Do I need permits?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes you do, but our team will take care of obtaining all the required permits to make the process as easy as possible for you.

Where are Take Place homes made?

keyboard_arrow_down

Most of our components are manufactured in Manitoba, Canada, including all of the timber and steel components, proprietary wall panels, windows, doors, and millwork.

How does electrical, plumbing and HVAC work?

keyboard_arrow_down

By design, all of the wall and ceiling cavities in a Take Place home are accessible, allowing for standard plumbing, electrical and ductwork to be run throughout the home.

Do Take Place homes come with a warranty?

keyboard_arrow_down

1 year - Materials and Labour Coverage,
2 years - Mechanical Systems Coverage,
