Now more than ever. Right now Vancouver is experiencing a MAJOR trade shortage, so all too often they aren't taking the time to prepare formal written quotes. Instead they are quoting over the phone or giving a one number price typed in the body of an email. It's your builder who needs to have the experience to determine whether that number makes sense. A tight administration and cost tracking process will also enable the builder to organize expenses through the tendering process. Lastly, ask your builder if he implements trade agreements with his subcontractors. These proactive steps go a long way in holding trades accountable to the ir original quoted price for your project.
Happy New Year 2018! With lots on the go we 're ramping up for another stellar year. Aside from the latest laneway and custom homes we 've got on the go, we 're excited to add to the roster a large luxury renovation on West 8th for previous clients we had done a large renovation for in Maple Ridge and have now been living in the West side of Vancouver for last few years in a stunning unobstructed waterfront view condo. Square footage is approx 2200sf including a gourmet kitchen, limestone floors, 2 bathrooms and den. We 'll be starting demolition end of this month, and look forward to working with a wonderful designer Tanya Shoenroth from Tanya Shoenroth Design (tanyashoenroth.com), we 're VERY excited to see the end product once we 're all done.
