Our building shell carpenter crew

Now that the shell is complete, I’ve been meaning to write a retrospective. What was good about our wall assembly and what wasn’t. What we learned and what we'd do differently next time. I’d like to get some input from the guys who actually built it: Justin, Mark, Blair, Tyler and Kyle from Cornelis Grey. Look for it soon. But for now, I just wanted to give our crew a shout out.

Hats off to them. They were great to work with, super professional and genuinely nice guys. Even our neighbours have commented on how courteous they’ve been, which is a huge bonus (gotta keep them in our good books seeing as how we are borrowing power, water and do need to live beside them eventually). Justin Corkum led the team. Mark really enjoyed working with him. They had a great dialogue back and forth and were able to forge a strong, trusting working relationship. Justin is moving on to another company. While we are keeping most of the crew, we are sad to see him leave. Thanks for all your help Justin!
