We’ve been using brown pressure treated lumber, branded as MicroPro Sienna, for three seasons now. It has many of the benefits of pressure treated lumber while looking similar to cedar. This is a fairly large brown pressure treated deck that we built in late July of 2015 in north London, ON. This deck has a few […]
This fence was built using the regular green pressure treated lumber. What makes this fence unique is the pattern of the boards. It’s not a pattern that’s seen all that often around London but it offers great privacy. Instead of off setting the boards on both sides of the fence it only has boards on […]
As a contractor sometimes you go outside your normal everyday projects to help out a good cause. We volunteered to co-manage a pavilion build at the Bradley St Church of God in Aylmer, ON.
