Meet the Design Consultants

Truly one of the most fun parts of the homeowner journey is visiting the Design Centre and working with our expert designers to personalize your new home.

Making your decisions

When you buy a new Minto home, you'll visit the Design Centre before construction begins. We encourage you to spend time collecting ideas and inspiration, so you can visit the Design Centre with confidence. The Design Centre is open for browsing on weekends, and you can also schedule time to sit down with our Design Consultants to go over your ideas in depth. Decisions made at the Design Centre are then sent to the Construction Team for the build phase of the homeowner journey.
