It’s all about communication!!!! I’m a huge fan of notes. I used to think I could remember EVERYTHING. I even fought the concept for a while because of pride..... There’s nothing worse than ignoring the right way because your lying to yourself.
What’s so bad about taking notes??? How could anyone think of it as a weakness??? They can’t and won’t. •
Here’s a perfect example. My prints have notes and highlighter on them to remind me of my concerns or calc’s from my last pass at them. Plus my notebook is always by my side. On this day I was transferring basement window RO’s that included my PT & KD framing for the #cribbers to their working set of prints. •
Next time you’re debating on taking notes or carrying your notebook, remember this. No one ever complains about accuracy. Accuracy is a result of being on top of your game and a notebook is critical in this game. •

Make work easier.
My dad. [prepare for RANT].
Probably THE place I got my work ethic. THE place I learned to work with my hands. THE place where early on the bar for excellence was set high for craftsmanship.

Growing up we had very little...anything. Especially money. But my dad had me helping him work on his ‘72 Pinto handing him tools, learning about measuring systems, bleeding brake lines etc in the parking lot of our apartments like it was Jay Leno’s collection in his private garage.
He’s still got that today!

Today when I visited he showed me how he was replacing the cabinet bottom under his sink - the disposal had leaked onto the crappy particle board long enough. Now he’s building new supports, pocket screwing them to the floors and a new cabinet bottom, sharing how he is making it perfectly level, down to the 1/16”. How he used 3/4” solid Maple and applied 2 coats of poly to it so it wouldn’t soak up future water. Replacing the disposal with another 1/2 HP Badger wouldn’t be enough. Just had to go with the 1 HP, fully stainless $300 model - something that will LAST. For a homeowner, he buys the nicest tools out there (no Festool stuff, but nice DeWalt everything), the best materials he can buy, dust extraction, the cleanest, most accurate cuts all for a cabinet bottom that only HE will see! At the end of the day, he will know he did it right.
On the flip side, he does have an obsessive personality and is an engineer by trade, so he has to reel himself back in at times - a self-admitted perfectionist which has its good and bad sides. But this is the good stuff he gave me.
The older I get, the more I start to see where “that comes from” in me, and I’m thankful for a Dad who cares even in the places no one will see and showed me the satisfaction of a hard day’s work and building something tangible.

DID YOU KNOW... most times getting a house built can cost you THE SAME as buying an older home? Why not build and CHOOSE the details?

Be one of the 1st into this new subdivision. I love when the builder steers away from cookie cutter and adds character.

A before and after of a 700 square foot ceramic demo and replacement. Flooring improvements can make a drastic difference in any space! Loving this wood style ceramic that’s very popular recently.

Jessica's review of our Total Home Renovation on her London home:
"Alair performed a total home renovation on our century home. The project involved taking the place down to the studs, putting on an addition, changing the HVAC and basically changing the layout of the whole house. It was a huge project and they did a fantastic job. It was a pleasure working with the team. Communication was frequent and efficient, their online platform made making selections easy and our project manager was accessible and professional. Highly recommended."
