Pratt Homes is a legacy builder that has been building homes of all shapes and sizes for everyone, no matter what stage of the family life cycle they’re in: from young adulthood to retirement years. The family’s tradition of building in Barrie, Ontario started in 1890, and has continued for six generations.
“The strength of the people throughout history, and all that remains of it today, largely results from the keen sense which they ever cherished of the importance of the home and the family. The house, the city, and labour, are all important to the conserving of the strength of the family.”
– G. Campbell Morgan
Building Homes for Families for Over a Century

William built approximately 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. The wall insulation was made of wood chips and shavings.
