Highlands Lockup

This coming week, temperatures are expected to plummet here in the Shuswap. Hopefully, it’s the last of the cold weather. Regardless, at one of our current projects in the Highlands of Shuswap Lake Estates, we’ve managed to lock up the home in the nick of time, allowing work to continue regardless of what weather comes our way.

The project, a walk-up rancher with beautiful views of the golf course, Blind Bay and Copper Island, has progressed well since Christmas. This past week, we continued with installation of shingles, along with windows and doors (see photo below). That means we’re buttoned up from the elements, and our plumbing, electrical, and HVAC subcontractors are free to proceed with rough-ins. Following that, we’ll move on to insulation and drywall. By that time, we should be enjoying better weather needed for efficient mudding and taping.

At that point, we can move on with finishing, and meet our goal of having our clients take possession so that they can enjoy some summer in their new home.

This project is one of several that we’re currently completing in the Highlands, and we’ll also be starting another home here in the weeks ahead as conditions and lifting of road restrictions allow.
