The standard specifications and materials we use. We offer a full range of alternative and upgrade products such as doors, windows, and roofing, and will even allow you to supply your own if we can’t get you what you want. We can also manufacture our trusses and framing to any specification you desire and will even special order your choice of lumber if our Canadian SPF #2 doesn’t fit your needs.
