With AF1 now safely at her permanent home and the holidays coming - we need to thank a lot of people. First, to our wonderful clients, obviously we wouldn't be here without you! We so enjoy the process, from our first meeting, listening to your wish lists, and becoming friends as the build progresses. We have had the pleasure of meeting such great people and look forward to meeting new clients in 2018.
Most of the building work is done by Jennifer and me, however we have an outstanding network of trades people who come in and work on the systems so that we can be sure everything is done just right. Many of these people work on lots of other projects and we recommend them all!
Safeguard Stoves - this family business is the best to work with - Glenn, Tammy, Jay, and Jake have provided and installed all the wood stoves we have used and we cannot recommend them more highly.
Jodrey Plumbing and Heating - Mark, Wade, Robert and Michelle - these guys are great at working on our plumbing set ups - they always think of clever ideas and do a great job!
In addition to all these fine people we'd like to thank Linkletters Welding for providing such well built trailers that are the foundation of each tiny shelter. Everyone at Castle Building Supply in Blockhouse from whom we get the vast majority of our supplies from and have the pleasure of visiting nearly daily. Kay Ennis who takes our rough drawings and turns them into beautiful 3D designs - so helpful for clients, and us. Melanie Langille of Dis'N'Dat Upholstery who has done lots of work from awnings and odd shaped mattresses to cushions and black out blinds. Galen's propane is our go to company for all our propane stoves and on demand hot water - they are a pleasure to do business with.
This past year we worked with Robar Countertops and DHW Cabinet Doors both of whom have been great to deal with and do lovely work. Of course Doug and Robin at the Boat Locker - who helps us source those crazy things we need that only boat people will understand.
Last, but certainly not least, are Shawn, Matthew and John at Schooner Cove Marine - they have moved and delivered most of our tiny houses - one all the way to Ontario. No matter how many we do moving day is always nerve wracking, but working with people who are so good at their jobs goes a long way towards feeling semi-relaxed as we watch a tiny house sneak out the driveway.
Really last thanks to the two dogs and one cat that check our work and love helping out. They are always watching our work - keeping a sharp eye out in case we make a mistake and always alerting us to visitors.
It's amazing how many details there can be in 200 sq feet - and how many people we depend on to get it just right! Thanks to everyone for a great 2017 and we wish you all a wonderful 2018!
James and Jennifer
