Been away from posting on this website for a while as have been busy over the last four years. Have had a new office made for my business by a GC and Management company and learned a few things about how construction works in Canada. I am not trying to insult anyone in the industry. I just know a few more things now about why stuff costs so much, why it is so slow to construct and how difficult it is to do it yourself anymore.
I am not a contractor, construction worker or trained in a trade. I am a dentist and stupid enough to buck the system and act as the General Contractor for our house construction. I have an awesome wife and family who have worked hard to help and I thought maybe show you guys and get some insight as we are 3/4 of the way done and the finishing stage is getting my woodworker itch going again.
So here we go
Our house of 13 years. Craftsman style with knob and tube wiring, dangerous insulation, carpenter ants, thick lead paint, house insurance being revoked etc etc. We maintained it well but was running out of space and the two teenage kids were going to axe murder each other over the shared bathroom upstairs
This arrives October 22nd, 2015
I watched our home go down over two hours with tears in my eyes. People next to me on the street cheering and thinking how cool this was…not for me. Here my wife inspects the aftermath, I think you can see the sad body language there as well
Have to do some work to pay the bills, back again soon
