We Love Garages!

Here at Copper Island Fine Homes, we pride ourselves on being the Shuswap’s leading new home builder. Whether it’s based on the number of homes we’ve built over the years, or the number of projects we’ve completed that have won coveted awards from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, we lead the pack. But that doesn’t mean anyone with a small project in mind shouldn’t approach us. We love small projects, because they’re often excellent fillers for our employees and trades who are between major projects. Yes, you can get Copper Island quality and integrity — for your small renovation, for your new coach house, or for your new garage.

Recently, we had a gentleman from Magna Bay approach us with a request to build a garage/workshop on his property. As it turned out, many of our principal trades were between major projects, waiting for road bans to end, or waiting for building permits to be issued. There was clearly a window of opportunity, so we quickly agreed and went to work immediately.

We broke ground in mid-March and wrapped up late in May. We (and our client) couldn’t be happier with the speed of construction and the finished project, which you can see in the photos above. One interior finishing detail of note: the client opted to have us install birch plywood instead of drywall, in order to have a more durable finish. In these types of applications, birch plywood is simply more water resistant and easier to keep clean. And it’s simply beautiful as well.

Don’t hesitate to contact us about the small project you’ve been dreaming about!
