The Pratt Homes Legacy
Get to know us. We know the importance of family
We’re proud of our legacy
William built approx. 20 houses in Barrie from the 1920’s into the 1950’s.
His houses were the first Pratt houses to have electric outlets built in wall insulation made of wood chips and shavings.
Murray built 21 houses in Barrie from 1942 to 1947. His houses incorporated a bedroom in the attic, thereby adding an extra half floor of living space. He built one of Barrie’s few frame-less houses built entirely of blocks and concrete. In the 1940’s Murray’s houses sold for $4,200 to $4,700.
Don built several hundred houses in Barrie from 1976 to 2004. Don was involved in the R2000 home concept launch in Barrie and made several innovations in building efficiency and energy saving plans. Don was the first family builder to brand the Pratt Homes name and create the Pratt Homes logo.
Karen Pratt-Hansen & Heljar Hansen
They have built several hundred houses in Barrie starting in 2005. They are pushing forward into the new area of Energy Star, energy efficient housing. The Pratt-Hansen group are planning to continue the family legacy by bringing home building and innovations into the future.
