5 of 5 starsReviewed 8 February 2016

We spent a weekend here, ski doing and tobogganing. The cabins had everything you would need and were very clean. We had a great weekend and can't wait to return! The best part about our stay were the owners who were so personable and accommodating. They went above and beyond by bringing soup and tums to our cabin when my boyfriend became sick with the flu. Couldn't ask for friendlier people! I would definitely recommend this resort!!!

C O M P L E T E  H O M E  R E N O V A T I O N:

             PHASE

                   ONE


Sven Gunter-Doerr and his premium renovation company, FineLine Developments Inc. crew have been hard at work on a total house transformation, so let’s take a look at the first phase of the project

Once finished, the original large open-space basement will include a spacious legal bedroom, a full bathroom open entertainment space and a separate utility room. FineLine chipped out the entire original concrete floor due to water leakage. To prevent future water damage, a new waterproofing system was installed to protect the foundation and new concrete flooring. With the new framing drywall, mudding and taping nearing completion, the focus will on completing the main floor to accommodate the homeowners' ability to move in as soon as possible.


The Main Floor

The 1,140 sq. ft. of this '50s-era bungalow will become fully maximized. By removing the original drywall and flooring, some walls will be relocated and reframed to accommodate the open concept space envisioned by Sven. All exterior walls will be reinsulated and wrapped before the new drywall is mudded and taped. A new gas fireplace will be plumbed in the living room and the original three-bedroom layout is being completely redesigned to include a spacious master suite and second bedroom/office area. 

Electrician Kevin Grotheim, from Riverbend Industries Ltd. is replacing the he entire electrical system of the house. Sven and Kevin have worked on several projects in the past. Sven maintains daily contact with the homeowners, keeping them updated with weekly progress meetings. He eagerly anticipates the finishing stage where the FineLine team will provide its specialty touches. 

Stay tuned for phase two of this total home transformation by Saskatoon's premium renovation experts, FineLine Developments Inc.

Age of Electric a Trusted Saskatoon Electrical expert is featured in local press

QUALITY ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING & SHOCKINGLY GREAT SERVICE AT A FAIR PRICE! 

Age of Electric is a full service Saskatoon electrical contractor, run by a group of journeymen electricians with years of experience. In an age where it is hard to find quality, service, and honesty, Age of Electric proves there are still businesses out there that still exist. Offering Residential and Commercial Electrical services in Saskatoon and the surrounding area. 


Electrical company with famous namesake claims 'shockingly good' service

                    

Arlen Hall, left, and Evan Demers recently moved their electrical contracting business, Age of Electric, into a new shop on First Avenue North.

Growing up in Lanigan, Arlen Hall hung out and played music with a pair of brothers who went on to form Age of Electric, one of Saskatchewan’s most successful rock and roll bands.

More than two decades later, Hall and his business partner Evan Demers decided to quit their contracting jobs to start their own electrical contracting company. Deciding what to call it was easy. 

“When we were coming up with the name, we threw a lot of different ideas around, but I kept on coming back to (Age of Electric), and everybody that I suggested that name to just loved it right away,” Hall said.

Founded in early 2014 — with the blessing of the former band members — Age of Electric is a residential, commercial and industrial electrical contracting firm that claims to provide “shockingly good” service. According to Hall, the “well-rounded shop” is the culmination of decades of experience. 

Hall said he started working as an electrician in 1995 after his girlfriend at the time told him that if he “didn’t quit playing music and get a job, she was going to move out.” Years later, he hired Demers to work at another electrical company. Then the pair decided to strike out on their own.

“We wanted to keep the good things that we had learned from more successful companies that we had been at … and then try not to do the things that we saw weren’t good from companies that weren’t run well,” Hall said with a laugh.

Earlier this year, Age of Electric — which now boasts five employees — moved into a new shop on First Avenue North. Hall attributes the company’s growth to its professionalism, which he said encompasses high-quality work, safety and branding.

“Really, what we want to do is provide an excellent service for a fair price,” he said.

The ongoing economic downturn has created problems for everyone working in the trades, including Age of Electric — but neither he nor Demers has any intention of slowing down, mostly because they love the work, Hall said. 

“And one of the things I really like is when we help (people) who are really stuck … That’s the kind of things that make me feel good.” 

Testimony from a very happy client:

If you need an electrician in Saskatoon, I highly recommend Age of Electric. I've hired 3 or 4 others over the years and these guys are a cut above, taking extra care in installations so that typical problems that usually happen long after they leave are avoided (in my case, extra bracing in a bathroom fan that would typical start vibrating loose after a few years) is avoided. And just really good guys too."  Janice Braden, Saskatoon 

WAY TO GO Age of Electric - setting the standard and showcasing what it is to be a Trusted Partners!!

Patio Doors

Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home, and that why you’ll want to consider a variety of options and patio door ideas before finalizing your project.

One of the most common patio door options is the French patio door. This style incorporates glass window panes in the door, allowing an unobstructed view from the home’s interior to the outside space and vice versa. It can create a natural transition from the inside to the patio. French patio doors are usually available in wood, fibreglass and PVC, and they can be configured as either swinging or sliding doors.

                                                              
                                                                                                          Sliding Patio Doors

Whereas French patio doors are a more traditional approach, contemporary sliding doors have a more modern look. These doors offer greater simplicity in that they create no obstacles at all to furniture placement, inside or out. Patios are generally gathering places for family and friends, and when lots of people are invloved, a traditional open and close door can be a hindrance to entering and exiting. Just ask anyone who’s tried to carry a tray of appetizers through a traditional door while a gaggle of toddlers is racing in or out. For this reason, and because they can add a modern, elegant design element to connect your outdoor and indoor space, sliding patio doors are a popular option.



In the past, sliding patio doors were heavier and had a reputation for getting stuck in their tracks or misaligned. Modern sliding patio doors generally offer a much slimmer, more contemporary look, and the problems of sticking and misalignment have been lessened. Because of the lighter materials, these new designs generally offer a larger, less obstructed viewing area as well. 
We LOVE these big sliding glass door panels….talk about a modern clean look!!
 
                                                              













A third patio door idea is the folding patio door.

Designed with three or more panels, these doors fold upon opening and slide on a track, similar to sliding doors. Folding patio doors can create a unique visual aesthetic and are often a good fit for more modern patio designs.

What ever option you prefer the look of, you need to ensure that it will work for you home and your family…thats where we come in ! The Sunview Windows and Doors team are skilled professionals. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience from beginning to end!
