PROJECTS | New Custom Build Started

As our other Custom Build commences the finishing stages of construction, we have started a new build just north of the city in Thornhill.  The old house has come down and we've got the very deep hole dug for the foundations and have progressed to ground floor framing.  We hope by Christmas to have the shell of the house up and standing.  Check back frequently for progress on this latest project.

PROJECTS | Floors, Stairs and Shakes

Our custom build in Midtown Toronto is really taking shape now.  Slotted for completion early next year, with floors, stair details and the exterior trim now in place, we're finally seeing some of the great architectural lines enhanced.

We specified 5" rift and quartered white oak site finished floors that have turned out beautifully.   The clients were looking for a light and neutral floor so we opted to forego any stain and simply applied urethane.

The stairs are also white oak.  These open riser stairs help to filter light down from the third floor skylights and are a fantastic architectural backdrop to the open dining room.  We have foregone standard railings and have created channels in the stair stringer and extended curbs along the catwalk to later house sleek glass guardrails.

On the exterior, we're nearly complete with the installation of the natural cedar shakes with crisp and contrasting James Hardie Trim.

YBILD Launch Party a HUGE success

Last week the crew at Eurodale attended launch party for YBILD, short for Young Builders, the new committee at BILD Association of under 40's.  The evening was a HUGE success and a sold out crowd networked and partied at Pravda Vodka Bar, discussing trends, the future of the building industry and issues affecting our businesses.  We would like to thank everyone on the committee at YBILD, BILD, and the sponsors of the event including the Toronto Star for a great evening and we are looking forward to future events and seminars.

Representing the Young Builder segment well is Eurodale’s own (Left to Right) - Sarah Baltare (design manager), Jim Cunningham (production manager), Brendan Charters (development manager) and Alberto Anabalon (operations manager)

The sold out venue Pravda was packed with 300 of the industry’s brightest young talent (on a Tuesday night!)

BILD Chairmen Paul Golini addresses the crowd. Though just over 40, he was able to obtain a fake ID to get in the door!

YBILD Committee members Caterina Facciolo (Bratty & Partners, LLP) and Brendan Charters (Eurodale Developments) discuss issues relating to the Young industry leaders. Sebastian Mizzi (Signature Developments), Chair of the Young Builders Committee presides over the talk…

Pravda provided the colourful urban backdrop for a perfect launch to the future of the exciting educational and issue focused events that YBILD will be rolling out over the coming year.
