As a red seal carpenter, I endeavor to construct a foundation I would want to build on. Level and square are absolutely essential to be able to frame a straight and level home. With over 20 years of building custom cottages and homes on and around Muskoka Lakes we have seen it and built on it all! Quality is our number one priority. Our goal is to see the homes built on our foundations lasting for generations. Trust us to start your project on a solid foundation.
After working summers in high school as a laborer for a custom cottage building company I chose to pursue a higher education in Architecture. Once back home in Muskoka I jumped right back into building Custom Cottages on the Lakes and went on to complete my General Carpentry apprenticeship at Georgian College in the 1st Muskoka Class.
After completing trade school, I was accredited my Red Seal Journeyman Carpenters License. I began building my own custom homes and, on every build, I would install the ICF (insulated concrete forms) foundation myself.
I have always firmly believed that ICF is by far the best possible foundation available for efficiency, waterproofing, and green building. ICF are always warm and dry basements. I feel being focused only on building the foundation allows us to continually advance in our quality. Building a perfect foundation is my only objective.
Growing up in Muskoka Alex was introduced to the building industry at an early age. With an understanding of most aspects to a build he has realized, like all things, the key to success is having a solid foundation. Since first working with ICF in 2015 it’s become a passion of his. With new products hitting the market seemingly everyday, he understands that no single option is the best option. Alex knows the importance of understanding the project and customer to ensure the best results.
We look forward to meeting you and working together to find what will work best for your project.
