Avalanche in the Highlands

When we get busy, as we are currently, we turn to our trusted sub-trades to get the job done. That’s the case right now, as we get closer to finishing a new walkout rancher in the beautiful Shuswap Lake Estates Highlands subdivision.

With our own staff working on numerous projects, we made a decision to bring in Avalanche Exteriors, a siding and exterior finishing contractor headquartered in Kelowna. The company’s Salmon Arm-based crew is going full on at this home, taking care of the entire exterior envelope: siding, soffit and gutters all in one go. The photos below were taken this week. Their work is excellent, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with this outstanding company. You can learn more about them at

Meanwhile, inside the home, all drywall has been completed. Priming will start this coming week, and our interior trim package will arrive onsite this coming Friday. We’re making excellent progress and are looking forward to showing it off when our clients arrive this coming week for a site inspection. It’s a timely visit, as they haven’t seen the home since the early framing stages, although we’ve been keeping in the loop with photos and FaceTime calls.

In the weeks ahead, we’ll post more photos of this stunning lakeview home as it moves ever closer to completion.
