Drake Construction can build your new home, office, addition, cottage or other building project.
ICF's, or Insulated Concrete Forms, are the best way to get a great foundation for your house, cottage, or addition. These insulated walls are filled with reinforced concrete and have an integrated drywall backing system and are the best way to start building an energy efficient house. ICF's can be used for both the foundation and subsequent levels of your home so that you can have these solid and efficient walls as the structural system of your home right to the roof! ICF's are also great when dealing with bedrock often found in cottage country. The blocks can be scribed to follow the contours of the natural bedrock creating a solid foundation for your cottage or home.
The Building Process
Wood framed houses are still the most common form of building in North America. Framing typically consists of the construction of wood floors, walls, and roof structure of the home. This is the stage that, although is eventually covered with both exterior and interior finishes, forms the key structure to most homes and must be constructed with care ensuring that everything is done properly and to code. Not every house is planned the same. The many advantages of a builder who takes the time to understand you is to know the things that are available. Things like walk out basements, suspended basement floors, framing methods that can make your home highly energy and cost efficient, and special features such as built in seating inside of a true bay window in the bedroom. Specialty decks and patios, retaining walls, pools, and spas. All of the things that are best to plan for before the build is started.
Interiors and Exteriors
From soffits and facia, windows and doors, to trim and a tile backsplash, interior and exterior work is what takes an already well built home and makes it both functionally solid and ecstatically beautiful. This is where your unique personal choices make the home an expression of who you are! From the detailed carpentry of a custom built wood staircase, a bathroom tile mosaic, to the tray ceilings and crown moulding throughout the home the interior and exterior work is a vital part of both practical function and personal flare.
