Will the quality of the home suffer when it's built in 3 days?


We've created a unique team of professionals to provide site logistics and ensure the build not only goes smoothly, but that it will exceed code requirements. The dedicated team of building inspectors and engineers led by Jamie Yolkowskie from the City of St. Thomas and Leon Bach from Central Elgin have been embedded into the planning process from the very beginning to ensure that nothing is missed as they work with us around the clock to complete HOPE.

This would not be possible to schedule without a number of teams for the build. The inspection team is rounded out by Eugenio DiMeo and Chris Peck along with structural engineer Mark Boyd who will be overseeing the construction of the roof. The team at Building Knowledge will also be on hand to blower door test the home to ensure it meets our air tightness requirements.

As for the materials and labour, each team is assigned a time slot and they will be bringing the number of skilled trades for their assignment to complete their work in the allocated time. For example, there will be six framing crews on site starting at first light Friday morning the 9th. This home is often framed in a week, but with six crews we anticipate the roof being on and their role to be complete before 2:00pm Friday.

In the same way an orchestra has many musicians that all must know their part and numerous instruments that must be conducted to play together from beginning to end, HOPE will have many workers on site with moving parts in all directions, all co-ordinated to deliver a completed home by Sunday afternoon. It's going to be EPIC!
