A Dream Realized - The Genesis of Avvio Fine Homes

In the heart of 2012, a dream took root in Vincent's heart, fueled by his deep-seated passion and education in architectural design and construction. It was more than an interest; it was a calling. The culmination of this journey was the realization of his lifelong dream – building his very own home. This experience wasn't just fulfilling; it was transformative, igniting a desire to scale new heights.

As the year waned, Vincent and Paul found themselves at a crossroads, yearning for a new challenge, a new adventure to embark upon together. With Vincent’s recent accomplishment of building his own home, Paul’s passion for entrepreneurship and both of their natural curiosity for constructing things of quality, they envisioned creating something of profound value, something that transcended mere construction. Their combined experience, education, and innate skills were not just complementary; they were perfectly aligned for the art of building custom homes.

What could be more valuable, more meaningful to their clients and their families than the very homes they live in? With this realization, 2013 marked the birth of Avvio Fine Homes – a venture born out of passion, a testament to the power of dreams.

Starting the Right Way

Their journey began with a deep dive into the wisdom of seasoned builders, expanding their already rich well of knowledge and experience. They delved into the specifics – the costs, risks, and legal intricacies of building custom homes as a business. This wasn't just learning; it was a meticulous crafting of a vision.

With a plan etched in their minds, they took a bold step forward. They acquired a property in North York, laying the foundation of their company, and securing their Tarion (now HCRA) license. This property wasn't just land; it was the canvas for their dreams.

Here, they designed and built two new custom homes, each a masterpiece showcasing their design prowess and commitment to quality. These homes were more than structures; they were declarations of their capabilities, the beginning of a journey that has since seen them obtain and successfully service numerous projects.

Their dream of being home builders didn't just come true; it blossomed into a quest to excel, to be the best in the field for decades to come.

Seamless Synergy And Unwavering Integrity You Can Count On

Unlike most building teams that have to overcome personality contrasts, Vincent and Paul share an easy understanding and unbreakable bond that only brothers can. This seamless synergy is highlighted in their dedication to their customers – two brothers pushing each other to give their very best – always.

Their Italian heritage has also given them an appreciation for innovative design and uncompromising quality. And their family upbringing is honoured in their work ethic and unwavering integrity (demonstrated in their unmatched concierge service and warranty). The result is a building experience you will enjoy, and a home you will love for a lifetime.

Art And Science Converge To Create Homes That Are Elegantly Functional, Supremely Comfortable, And Measurably Energy Efficient

Vincent and Paul’s appreciation for both art and science naturally led them to specialize in designing and building high-performance homes (not just to code minimum) that are luxurious and energy efficient.

Unlike other builders who merely claim to build homes that are energy efficient, Avvio’s homes are built with meticulous attention to detail to ensure they are certified Energy Star or Net Zero so they minimize their impact on climate change.

We are constantly learning and growing, and have a deep respect for the science of building, seeking out training and performance metrics to benchmark our builds.

By working with us, you will experience this through greater comfort and significant energy savings. Validated by independent testing and formal certification.
