It’s All In the Finish

Our dynamic duo of finish carpenters, Chuck Beaton and Mark Orchard, really put the “fine” into every one of our Copper Island Fine Homes.

Every trade is vital when it comes to building custom homes, and you certainly need a solid foundation and structure underneath. But often, a home’s beauty is judged on what’s actually visible in the finished product. And perhaps nothing is more visible than the custom finish carpentry.

We understand this, and that’s why we’re so proud to have Chuck and Mark on the tools for each build. Chuck hit his 10 year anniversary with Copper island last summer, and Mark has been working with us for four years.

“These two guys do just incredible work, are always willing to jump on any project I give them, and are never afraid to take on a finishing challenge we’re presented with,” says Heidi Friesen, Project Manager. “Their work is next level and always done to the best of their ability.”

The photos below feature Chuck and Mark wrapping up a beautiful shiplap ceiling with stacked beams at one of our current projects on Eagle Bay Road. The next step is to have them stained and clear coated.

Other finishing in this stunning home is also underway, including flooring in the basement and interior stone/tile work. Our thanks to Chuck and Mark for their fine finishing, and to all of the trades who have contributed to yet another Shuswap dream home.
