We take a personal interest and pride in every project making certain your vision is realized.

Our reputation is important to us. Our business was built on it. Let us turn your ideas... ...into visions…into dreams…and ultimately...dream homes.



Home Building & Construction Management

With 16+ years of estate/custom home builds. Our construction experience allows us to view and design a set of plans from a custom home builders point of view. Taking into consideration proper material dimensions and key home building elements, It allows minimal guess work out in the field. I take your ideas: a sketch, or a verbal description of your needs, I use your requirements for room sizes, garage spaces, style of home and features, and finally put it all together - precise, concise, properly detailed, ready to build!

House Plan & Home Design

All of our design work is done in-house. We've  been designing custom estate and executive homes since 2001. We're involved in the design phase and the entire custom build process. We  have experience in projects ranging from 1500 to 6000 square feet and everything in between.

Our point of view is this:

"Every prospective home owner is different with different needs and wants. It's important to me that your project is unique, one that can be considered your own. Our involvement with you from inception to completion will ensure that your project falls within your budget, is one that will have a lasting impression, great curb appeal and great resale value."

Our Start...

Chris's father, Robert began as Robert Fumo Construction 35+ years ago.  Chris joined in 2000 and with his experience in the building industry and computing industry has allowed them to construct many fine custom homes over the years.  All of our homes since then have been designed and built with years of experience, new technology.  These homes are computer designed, luxurious, well laid out, and well built. Since 2001 Chris & Robert have been involved in many custom home projects.  

Robert was a resident of the Barrie area for 50 years.  And in that time he developed and honed his abilities for construction.  His projects have consisted of new home and commericial construction, and investing in properties in the Barrie, Collingwood and surrounding areas.  

Devoted to family - first and foremost. He was a great provider, father, husband and very generous to many. His abilities, his strength; both physically and mentally, his mentoring and generosity are lessons that were learned by a priveledged few.
