Design and Permit Process for a Custom Home in Mississauga
In the city of Mississauga, a building permit will need to be obtained prior to starting any major construction job. Depending on the size of your project, the custom home design and building permit process
Usually, smaller projects that don’t include changes to the house’s exterior or its footprint are completed faster. On the other hand, projects involving an addition to the house or changing the front to boost curb appeal can take longer.
After an architect completes your home design, you should submit it to the building department. An examiner will be assigned to review your project to ensure it complies with local zoning bylaws, the Ontario Building Code, and any other applicable law. This step is required to obtain a building permit.
Tip: An architect can help you complete this process and can assist you with hiring other consultants. A Mississauga residential architect can facilitate this process, as they’re more familiar with the associated bylaws and regulations.

Four Major Phases to Realize Your Custom Home in Mississauga
CHOOSE THE BEST ARCHITECTS
Custom luxury home design in Mississauga is an exciting and dynamic experience! Your first decision: would you rather work with a drafting technician, or contact a professional residential architect? A drafter can help you draft what you need but an architect can understand why and what you need to change and can help you find the most efficient and cost-effective custom home design. There are many other advantages to hiring an architect because they will be able to help you avoid many common mistakes, especially if they are already familiar with local neighborhoods and building codes.
In the city of Mississauga, your building application has to be in compliance with zoning bylaws─both new and old. A skilled residential architect can help you get through this phase, as they understand limitations and requirements related to bylaws. They will know how to apply proper changes to the design in order to maximize the use of the land and increase custom home design efficiency.
PREPARE PERMIT DRAWINGS
Next, your Mississauga residential architect will prepare a complete set of drawings for your house. These drawings will include sections, elevations, and construction specifications. Should you decide, the architect can also contact other professionals (such as Structural Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, and Surveyors) to prepare additional documentation required by the city of Mississauga.
SUBMIT BUILDING APPLICATION
When all of your drawings and technical documentation have been assembled, it is time to submit your application to the city of Mississauga. City examiners will work alongside your architect to conduct a complete review of the application. This phase requires constant communications between the city examiners and architect to ensure that the submitted documents are in full compliance with the City’s requirements.
