At Fine Line Homes, we’ve found that many of our customers are interested in building custom energy-efficient homes on a rural acreage. To meet their varied lifestyle needs, we’ve developed three distinct Calgary home builders floor plans for large country lots.

Tips for Buying Acreage in Rural Areas
As a full-service custom home builder, we at Fine Line Homes offer you full support throughout every phase of the home buying and home building processes. We’re here to help you find the right acreage in the right location, but even so, it’s still a good idea for you to bear some handy tips in mind to make the process even easier:
- If you’re unfamiliar with the area, try renting a nearby home before you build to get a feel for what life is like there
- Talk to all your family members before committing to a move, particularly if you have teenage children; adolescents often feel isolated living in rural areas, which can make them unhappy
- Visit the acreage during the late spring, summer, or early fall so you can fully explore the property without snow getting in the way
- Knowing how close the nearest fire station is will help you accurately anticipate the cost of your homeowners insurance policy
- Talk to local residents about commuting times into the city and access to local amenities
Finally, be sure to thoroughly familiarize yourself with zoning and building by-laws that apply to the area in which you’ve decided to build. While we’re here to help you manage those details, there may be restrictions that limit the types of add-ons and building features you can customize, and knowledge of local regulations will help you avoid disappointment.
