Can I Make Changes To An Evolve Home?
For rear detached garage home products (Laned Homes), we do not allow any changes to be made. For our laned home Evolve product, Sterling provides customers the opportunity to select the interior colour chart, depending on where the home has arrived in it’s construction.
For front attached garage home products, it is possible to select your lot, your structural floor plan options, as well as your interior colour chart. We otherwise do not allow any other changes to the home.
WAIT, BUT WHY?
With the Evolve product line, our objective as a company is to provide easier access to homeownership, by building homes at a more affordable price.
To achieve our prices and savings we are passing onto buyers, we plan efficient floor plan designs, we purchase materials in bulk for economies of scale, and we simplify the construction process for efficiencies in timeline. However, the downside to the EVOLVE line, is the inability to make certain changes, such as an upgrading your sink to an under-mount style, as these design decisions are already made.
What you might be thinking is, “but I’m willing to pay for the change!? So why not? I don’t want this specific savings”. The best answer we can provide is this: if we make changes to one, the systematic approach we use, which includes the construction, building, and purchase processes that have been created to achieve the savings on all of our Evolve homes in Edmonton, then gets disrupted, and the gains are quickly lost.
This is why we try to be as transparent as possible when presenting the Evolve Line… because of its firm process. For customers with upgrade requests, we typically lead them to our Advantage product line, where customers have the ability to make additional design changes to the home.
