Owner/Builder & Students Rise To The Challenge of Rising Costs

Our Ontario, Canada client had been planning this build for a few years. It’s not always easy to balance work, life and a new home build peppered with 8 weeks of students coming and going, but at the end of the day we not only finished ahead of schedule, but well under budget! Not bad considering that we only had 4 or 5 days in total without rain.

Part of hitting milestones was everyone’s willingness to make changes and seek out alternatives. One such instance was a crew member sourcing a baseball diamond clay mix to replace the higher priced pigments. The result is a simple and elegant finish that looks great in any light!
