SOLD! THE OFFICIAL FINAL WALKTHROUGH OF TRAILS EDGE IN LAKE COWICHAN, BC 2022

 

Welcome to Trails Edge in Lake Cowichan! Here we have built a beautiful energy efficient home, which takes health and comfort into consideration – and that is now being enjoyed by the new and lovely home owners, Jodi and Sandy. With a lot of care and attention, we were able to bring this home to Step 5 and make it a Net Zero Energy Ready Home – meaning the new home owners have the option of adding solar panels to officially make it a Net Zero Home, and therefore make it even more energy efficient!

Part 1: Breaking Ground & Forming Concrete Walls | Foundation

We are very excited to be sharing our next construction journey (and new series) with you: “Building a Custom Home in Trails Edge” (in Lake Cowichan). This video is Part 1 of the new series and documents the process of “getting out of the ground” – which (in most jobs) is your unknown. Here we will show you the first few steps on getting your foundation set in order to start building your brand new home! And by using our DJI Mini 2 drone, we also provide you with a bird’s eye view of this new home’s layout – which will be a 3 bed / 2 bath rancher. We like to share and be as transparent as we can, so if/when you’re thinking of building your own home one day, you can have a better understanding of what goes in to each stage of building and the timelines that follow.

Part 2: StormTech Stormwater Retention System Installation

This is Part 2 of our “Building a Custom Home in Trails Edge” series! In this video, we demonstrate how we install a stormwater retention system and explain its benefits for your property. You also get to see how the house is shaping out, as framing has officially started. (This footage was taken back in January 2022, and since then the house has come a LONG way – so stay tuned, because we a have a TON of new footage to show you and many more videos to share!)

Part 3: VYCOR enV-S WRB Installation Review

In this video, we are installing our building envelope using VYCOR enV-S WRB (Weather Resistant Barrier), Passive Seal and Passive Tape – which was supplied by Powerhouse Building Solutions. We have their reps, Ryan and Andrew, onsite to provide us with a better understanding of the benefits of using VYCOR enV-S and Passive Tape.

Part 4: Air Sealing Our WRB with Passive Tape & Passive Seal

This is Part 4 of our “Building a Custom Home in Trails Edge” series! In this video, we demonstrate how we used Passive Seal and Passive Tape to air seal this home and strengthen the durability of our WRB (Weather Resistant Barrier). The Passive Seal and Passive Tape were supplied by Powerhouse Building Solutions.

OPEN HOUSE in Trails Edge, Lake Cowichan Home Builders | June 7th, 2022

We invite you to come join us for our open house on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022 (from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) at 108 Driftwood Terrace in Lake Cowichan – there will be a BBQ and a chance to win a housewarming gift basket that we put together! Jordan will also be taking this opportunity to share why he is so passionate about this house and how it is different than most houses on the market – because with its low energy bills and proper filtration to keep the owner healthy and happy, this house was built to last for many years to come (who wouldn’t be excited?)!

Part 5: UNFINISHED HOUSE TOUR | Driveway, Drywall and Design

In this video, we get to give you the “unfinished house tour” of Trails Edge! It’s been a long journey to get to this point, and we are so excited to share our progress! Here you finally get to see the finished exterior, as well as a sneak peek of some of the finishes (such as tile, cabinets etc.) for the interior design! As of now (June 7, 2022) the house is complete and ready for house tours! A video for the final look will be out in the next couple of weeks, but if you are eager to see it sooner, you can sign up for an in-person personal house tour here on our website!
