I’ve lived in Regina for 30 years, and will never leave. I have a love for science, technology, business, and construction. I have my education degree majoring in Business Ed, minor in Chemistry. I taught some of the province’s best and brightest at Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies for three years while doing renovations and house flipping in my spare time. I’m good with numbers, finances, and planning. However, I can’t design my way out of a paper bag. I have total trust in my wife's design choices and am letting her make the calls throughout this project regarding colour and decor.

Driveway and walkway complete! And WOW!

Since we had such a great experience with Safrane Construction for our foundation, we decided to use them as well for our driveway and walkways. Brant came out and measured one week, we confirmed, and then two weeks later over a span of two days, the crew of Safrane prepped, poured, and finished almost 800 square…

Why did we seal our ducts from the INSIDE?

They say a picture says a thousand words. So this picture explains quite clearly why we chose to use Aeroseal of Regina to seal our ducts from the inside. When you want a room warm, you want it warm now. When you want it cold, you want it cold now. Breaks in the pipe like…

Automated AV: Our final decision

     December 23, 2014 0 Comments

Home automation was something that was very hard for us to figure out what we wanted, mostly due to our unfamiliarity with the systems and brands. However, we knew from the beginning that we wanted to install a system in the House Trade Built to increase value and design simplicity. Hello: no cords and minimal…

ICF vs. Standard Concrete + Forms

     September 30, 2014 0 Comments

There are two types of basements that we were considering for the House Trade Built: a regular concrete form foundation or an insulated concrete form (ICF) foundation. ICF foundations are where contractors basically build your basement out of Lego pieces made of thick styrofoam. Traditional concrete form basements are formed between steel and wood sheets. Concrete is poured…

Solar panels? No-brainer.

     August 20, 2014 10 Comments

Alright, so I think it’s time to explain why I chose to entertain a solar panel quote and why in the end, it ended up being such an easy decision for our build. First of all, I am going to go out on a limb here and start a new trend: I don’t hate the…

B2B Barter Made Easy

     August 11, 2014 0 Comments

Successfully bartering for goods and services directly is rare in business today for several reasons.  It’s rare that you have something that someone else needs and at the exact same value they need from you. Carrying “IOUs” can leave you empty-handed when you go to collect. Unless tracked very carefully and correctly, it could cause…
