11/23/2017
More
Similar to a Passive House, R-2000 is another building standard that you can plan to achieve when building your home. It can be overwhelming to learn about all these different building standards. The important thing, for you, is to know which one of these measures suits your needs. As a contractor, we can work with you to determine which way to proceed. Before that, though, think about what you want to get from your future home. Is it comfort? Is it performance? For the visual folk out...

Can I do my own demolition?

11/16/2017
More
Can I do my own demolition? Us, humans, are very good at tearing things down and apart, but this podcast is not about that. This episode is about getting the answer to the question: Can I do my own demolition? Yes, you can! Nothing is stopping you from tearing down your walls, ceiling and floors. Before you do that though, make sure to have all safety measures in place (hard hat, steel toe boots, protective eye-wear). Some demolition work might not be as easy as it might seem. Electrical...

What is a Passive House?

11/2/2017
More

Let me give you an example: You are probably aware of the term "Passive Income". You know that it is the type of income that you generate while doing little or no work. This income requires some work at the beginning (set up) and minimal maintenance. Subsequently, you get to focus on other life activities while the money rolls...

Do I need plans to renovate my home?

2/21/2017
More
Do I need plans to renovate my home? This is technically possible but it is not recommended. In a case of a small job, ie. flooring replacement, you might not need a set of plans. Even in this case, the communication between you and your contractor must still be at a high level. See the video about expectations. The set of blueprints/plans will give your contractor the ability to price the job accurately. If you do not have a set of plans, the price of the project is arbitrary and the...

Clear understanding from the beginning between you and your contractor will facilitate the building process.
