DAUPHIN RIVER HOUSING
FRESH worked with the future owners of six single dwelling family housing units to design and build their new homes. The project involved multiple stages of construction including excavation, grading and site preparation, foundation construction, driveway and walkway construction, domestic well installation, framing, plumbing, electrical, exterior finishing and interior finishing.
This housing project provided a unique challenge because of its isolated location; 355 km North of Winnipeg and on the far side of a substantial river. This required efficient planning by the FRESH team to get all materials and supplies to the site while the winter roads were accessible. Barges were also required to move materials and equipment to and from the project.
FRESH is dedicated to using local labour when possible, in this case the residents of the houses helped with the design and even the physical construction of their own units. FRESH is also sourced equipment from local companies.
