The Right Tool…

When it comes to great weather, we’ve had it pretty good here in the Shuswap over the past stretch. Our crews working in the elements have enjoyed some pretty mild and relatively dry conditions during the past few weeks. But that’s all about to change next week, if forecasts are to be taken seriously.

At our Turtle Valley project, two of our staff carpenters, Chuck Beaton and Mark Orchard, are hoping to beat the cold weather as they strive to finish the exterior of this two story, off-the-grid custom family home. To help them complete the siding, we’ve rented a SkyTrak zoom boom telehandler. Not only does this versatile tool help us get the job done faster, it’s also a lot safer — particularly during winter on a two story home such as this.

Meanwhile, inside the home, kitchen cabinets are in the process of being installed (see inset photo). Later this month, flooring installation will get underway. We’re on track to complete the home for the new owners at some point in March.

Incidentally, many of our staff and subtrades say this is the most tranquil and relaxing place they’ve had worked at!
