EDITOR’S NOTE

MAKE WISE CHOICES

and enjoy the process

When only a brand-new home or condo will do, those in the market will be pleasantly surprised by the exceptional value and attention to detail “new” offers. When you buy new, you don’t inherit somebody else’s worn carpeting, personal taste in kitchen appliances or paint colour preferences. You get a fresh, clean space that’s waiting for your personal imprint.

If you’ve always fantasized about buying a brand new condo suite, here are a few tips that can help you make the process a pleasant one: ›› Shop the mortgage market to see what you can afford before you start your hunt; ›› Obtain a lawyer who is willing to review your offer and close the deal; ›› Don’t be persuaded by high-pressure sales tactics while you’re out shopping; ›› Determine which options and upgrades you want as part of your offer and ensure your lender will finance what’s required, if needed; ›› To save money, consider which upgrades you could purchase and install yourself after the sale closes. Some upgrades such as rough-ins and wiring inside the walls are easier to do during construction. Factors such as the cost of the home, the neighbourhood, the size and special features all play a big role in your final decision. Determining which features your new place absolutely must have, and which features you could live without, should be among your first steps in the home-buying process. We hope you enjoy this issue of New Condo Guide. Let us know what you think! We’d love to hear from you.

MAINTENANCE FEES pay for the perks

Inexperienced homebuyers are often caught off guard by the concept of condo fees. “You mean, I have to make this payment every month, in addition to my mortgage payment?” They ask this question without really considering what they are getting for their money. The real question to ask would be, why are you choosing the condo lifestyle? A big draw to condominium living is the built-in luxury it offers. The lockand-leave lifestyle lets you travel on a whim with no worries about security, snow shovelling and the like. Your home may also come equipped with amenities like a pool, a gym, a rooftop patio, a theatre and games room, a party room with catering kitchen – the list is long and it is luxe. Yes, you pay a monthly fee, but what would it cost to add all these incredible amenities to a lowrise home, not to mention maintaining them? All of these wonderful extras contribute to the attractive condo lifestyle while you live there, and should you ever choose to sell, they will add to your bottom line as well. Consider your condo an investment, and those monthly fees ensure that all the elements which attracted you to condominium living in the first place remain in good shape and desirable for future buyers.

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FUTURE Carrington Group of Companies Celebrates

40 Years in Business

I

n 2013, Carrington Group of Companies is celebrating its 40th anniversary, a milestone that says more about their commitment to their customers and respect for their craft than anything else. In 1973, Ken Ferchoff had a vision to build quality, affordable homes, and since then the Carrington Group of Companies has grown to become an industry-leading, award-winning residential builder in the Greater Edmonton Area. “Our main focus is and always has been to provide homes that are affordable,” says Ferchoff. “When costs go up, owning a home gets more unattainable and we understand that. That’s why we try to give our customers great value and as much of a house as we can for the dollar. 20 NEW CONDO GUIDE | VOLUME 21 ISSUE 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

“Of course, that’s not easy, which is why we have a lot of people in our office who try to design homes that work efficiently and maximize what you get. Things like reducing maintenance costs by properly designing heating and cooling systems like triple glazing and gas-filled windows. You want to design for the future, for people to be able to afford to maintain their homes.” Designing for the future also means Carrington homes need to be built to last, too. “We actually use some of the same suppliers we’ve used for 30 to 35 years, everything from concrete, windows, flooring and framers. The people on the construction sites are good people and are proud of the work they do. And because we know who’s working on our homes, we can work together to rectify any problems quickly, should anything come up.” So while some of the faces and names Ferchoff works with haven’t changed, the needs of the community—and how we function and consume information—certainly have. “In terms of building, things are so dramatically different today with the


speed of everything. Thanks to technology, you can talk to someone on the job site like he’s right next to you.” Ferchoff says that in the past they’d tell the buyer that they could change a few things and that’s what they’d build. “Today, your world is your oyster. The designs are on the drawing board, and you can make modifications, go online and change things, and see what it’ll look like before you even build.” And those younger generations are changing the way Carrington does business, not only in terms of how they build. “Today, now we have a marketing department that’s on FB and Twitter, because the company has to be there—it’s the way of the future. We have more stuff on the website; so much information because the consumer wants that.”

CARRINGTON GROUP OF COMPANIES CARRINGTON COMMUNITIES (condominiums) Over 11,000 families have chosen the Carrington Group for their most important investment. Today, Carrington Communities has 14 projects in the Greater Edmonton Area.

BEDROCK HOMES (single-family and townhomes) In operation since 1999, and specialized in providing the best value for first-time homebuyers and move-up buyers.

Ferchoff says it’s exciting today to see the young people getting involved, changing things and making things green. Carrington is very progressive in green initiatives in all aspects of land and building development including having Built Green certification on all Bedrock Homes. “As a business, it’s fascinating watching and learning what the younger generations want and what they see for the future.” When Ferchoff was young and looking to the future, he was more concerned about making ends meet than anything else. “I was working as a janitor sweeping floors and selling furniture, and I qualified for a low income lot from the city. People were lining up for lots and sleeping on the City Hall steps for their chance to qualify. I was the sixth guy in line for a lot in Millwoods, and I decided instead of hiring a builder, I thought with some help and guidance, I could do it myself. I built my first home in Lee Ridge and it’s still there. I did ninety percent of the work, drew the plans, submitted them to the City and did my own excavation. It was lots of physical work to get it done, but it was very rewarding.”

CARRINGTON RESORTS (recreational real estate) High-quality recreational real estate opportunities. Currently, our Texada development in Nanaimo, British Columbia offers premium suites with ocean views of the Georgia Strait and Coastal Mountain vistas. The Carrington Group is also the preferred builder of senior retirement residences for Lifestyle Options Retirement Communities in the Edmonton and surrounding areas. 21


After that first house, he realized that he could make more building and selling one house than he’d make sweeping floors and selling furniture for a whole year. “Of course, the first number of years I worked lots of hours.” And after working hard and expanding into commercial developments, and multi-family housing, golf courses, car dealerships and developing bare land, “Now, I don’t have to work as much,” laughs Ferchoff. “Looking back, it’s been quite the ride, but I’ve never really found it to be a job. It’s just been interesting and fulfilling. I think if you really like what you do it’s not really a job the way people think of a job.” A lot of that attitude has to do with the people who make up the Carrington Group of Companies. “To be honest, no company is a good company with one person in the lead. Carrington has been successful simply because of our employees. We have 600 people who work here; good, caring people in every department. Everywhere throughout the company there are amazing people. Really, I have to give credit to the people around me; the employees make the big difference around this company.” They also make a big difference in the community through their employee-led program called “Hope Builders”, where employees raise money and volunteer their time to give back and increase awareness about participation in community initiatives. Those people have also led Carrington to become a leading philanthropic homebuilder in the Greater Edmonton Area. “One charity that’s closest to our hearts today is Changing Futures Foundation whose goal it is to extend a helping hand by building housing and creating partnerships and opportunities to support underprivileged individuals and families as they work towards building brighter futures. Our first such project, Project Touchdown, is a fourplex that we’re donating to meet the needs of teen parents who deserve a second chance to create the future they deserve. This project is in partnership with Terra Centre, and is being built by our Bedrock division. Ground breaking took place in early August. Along with taking care of the community, after 40 years in business, what’s one of the biggest lessons Ferchoff has learned? “Forty years in business has taught me to have a lot of respect for my competitors in Edmonton. As I travel to other cities, I realize how nice 22 NEW CONDO GUIDE | VOLUME 21 ISSUE 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

Ground Breaking of Project Touchdown

it is to do business here with competitors such as Qualico, Ace Lange and Christenson,” explains Ferchoff. “That also includes quality of tradespeople and suppliers. We generally have a quality building group here.” Based on the past, what does Ferchoff see for the future of homebuilding business in Edmonton? “Generally, going forward, I see that people will be buying smaller properties, with more discerning finishes. We’ve gone from big and basic to smaller, functional, energy efficient homes. “We’re in a great city. When you look across Canada, Alberta is a shining light,” says Ferchoff, a light that’s keep Carrington’s birthday candles glowing for 40 years.

St Edmonton’s best downtown location At 33 stories, Fox Two occupies the centre of Edmonton’s most sought-after downtown neighbourhood — the 104 Street Promenade — and is the last major tower to be built on this popular street. Fox Two represents the final phase of Langham Developments’ Fox Towers project. The first phase — Fox One — is currently under construction and almost sold out. Edmonton’s 104 Street Promenade was one of 4 finalists on the 2013 list of Great Streets in Canada, and is home to eclectic shops, restaurants and a summertime street-wide farmers’ market. Boasting a walk score of 98/100*, residents also enjoy unparalleled walkable and LRT access to the best of Edmonton, including the highly anticipated downtown arena. Another Langham development, Icon Towers completed in 2010, was instrumental in hastening the rejuvenation of this popular neighbourhood, and the Fox Towers project will further cement its popularity. *www.walkscore.com

Lynne Duncan, 2012 United Way Board Chair looks on as Phyllis Bellerose, Financial Literacy participant completes signing the Statement of Support at the Creating Pathways Out of Poverty launch on June 18, 2013.

INSECURE… LEFT OUT… hungry…under-valued… hopeless… embarrassed. Poverty hurts. It’s hard to imagine that in our prosperous region, 120,000 people are affected by poverty, including 37,000 children. Poverty is very complex and can affect anyone. Numerous factors contribute to families or individuals falling into poverty, including job loss, change in family circumstances, injury or other unforeseen circumstances. And once someone experiences a descent into poverty, it’s a daily struggle to emerge. In addition to the social impact on our community, poverty costs Alberta billions of dollars to manage. It’s time for a change. We can’t just focus on managing poverty. Together, we must help lift people out of it. After several years of work and listening to our community, United Way launched a new direction, “Creating Pathways Out of Poverty,” in June 2013. This new direction includes the vision of a poverty-free region where all children can reach their full potential, all families have financial stability and all communities are safe and inclusive. United Way’s new direction, “Creating Pathways Out of Poverty,” focuses on three areas that provide the best opportunities for lasting change in our community – education, income and wellness.

What you need to know

// by michelle oranchuk

about mortgages

Y

ou’ve found the home you want and you’ve signed the deal. Now, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty, making sure you get the right mortgage that meets your financial circumstances.

Mortgage basics

Michelle Oranchuk is a Mortgage Specialist with RBC Royal Bank, serving Edmonton and the surrounding area. She specializes in helping you select a mortgage that suits your lifestyle and makes your home ownership goals happen. Expert advice on mortgage pre-approvals, purchasing real estate, refinancing, mortgage rate inquiries and realtor referrals. michelle.oranchuk@rbc.com

By understanding these basic mortgage concepts, you’ll be better able to tailor your mortgage to your specific needs: › Principal The amount of money you need to borrow, usually the difference between the selling price of the property and your downpayment. › Interest The amount you will pay for borrowing money. ›M  ortgage payment A regular installment, usually made up of principal and interest, with which you repay the mortgage over its term to maturity. › Amortization period The actual number of years it will lake to repay the entire mortgage. › Term The length of time that a specific mortgage agreement covers, generally between six months and 10 years (although 25-year terms are also available). When the term matures or expires, the balance of the mortgage is generally renegotiated for another term at rates and conditions in effect at that time. › Equity The value of your property over and above all claims; usually the difference between market value and the outstanding principal of all mortgages relating to the property. Your mortgage payment options

Weekly and biweekly payments can be accelerated, which means that you make a slightly larger payment each time, which amounts to the equivalent of one extra monthly payment a year

Making more frequent payments is one of the ways you can pay off a mortgage sooner. You have the choice of weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly or monthly payments. Weekly and biweekly payments can be accelerated, which means that you make a slightly larger payment each time, which amounts to the equivalent of one extra monthly payment a year. How frequently you make payments will make a substantial difference to your total interest costs. See the differences in the example below using a $100,000 mortgage at seven per cent.

Interest

Everyone today is familiar with the impact of interest rates. The lower the interest rate, the less you will pay for your mortgage over time; the higher the interest rate, the more you will pay over time. The table below illustrates the impact of various interest rates on the monthly payments for a $100,000 mortgage amortized over 25 years. In this example, a difference of only three per cent in the interest rate can represent a difference in payments of $181 or more each month. interest rate*

The chart below shows the impact of various amortization periods on the monthly mortgage payment and total interest costs (over the full amortization).

industry update

// by jim rivait

#YEG stands for…

Jim Rivait is Executive Officer of CHBA Alberta. Starting his career working in government, Jim spent the last decade working in the private sector specializing in government relations, advocacy, strategic communications, policy development/analysis and association management.

E

dmonton Twitter users often include the hashtag “#YEG” in their tweets to let people know they are commenting about this city. The origin of #YEG is the code used to identify the Edmonton International Airport – but the letters stand for something else as well: Youth, Energy, Growth. Homebuilders have a great vantage point to observe how the energy of a young and growing population is transforming Edmonton. This year, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. predicts Edmontonarea builders will start on 13,900 units, up a healthy eight per cent from 2012, as a combination of employment growth, low interest rates and new residents gives the market extra energy. Contrast the strong upward trend with the rest of Canada, where the number of new homes built this year is expected to fall by almost 14 per cent.

youth, energy, growth Each new home represents a major vote of confidence in the future of Edmonton as a place to build a career, start a business or raise a family. New-home buyers are seeing Edmonton as a great place to put down roots and participate in the region’s economic growth. The same youthful energy that is driving the housing market can be seen in the election of Mayor Don Iveson, who at 34 years of age is a couple of years younger than the median age for the city. It can been be found in the Make Something Edmonton campaign to promote new ideas here, or the Light the Bridge project that is raising $3 million to install thousands of programmable LED lights on the High Level Bridge. New ideas have a chance to take flight when a city is growing the way Edmonton is. And we are growing dramatically. Edmonton has added more than 100,000 residents in the last half decade. Nearby communities are also growing fast, with Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Leduc and Fort Saskatchewan all increasing in population by more than 20 per cent over the period covered in the last five-year census. Beaumont grew an astounding 48 per cent. Growth is nothing new in this part of the world. Population statistics from the City of Edmonton show that the population has increased every year since 1932, when the number of residents dipped by 672 to 78,387 during one of the worst years of the Great Depression. That’s an 80-year winning streak that remained unbroken despite the ups and downs of our energy-based economy.

Homebuilders have a great vantagepoint to observe how the energy of a young and growing population is transforming Edmonton Newcomers may notice that growth is not always welcomed here in the same enthusiastic way it is embraced in cities that are struggling economically and fighting desperately to hang onto jobs and people. There is grumbling in the media about pressure to provide new roads, schools and hospitals to accommodate a growing population. But our newest fellow citizens have recognized that despite the stresses that can arise from growth, they are more than outweighed by the opportunities available in an expanding economy. Let’s welcome our new neighbours and recognize they are helping to write a new chapter in Edmonton’s story. They are bringing a great deal more to the region than infrastructure costs, as did the newcomers in the past who arrived with their own dreams and built the city we enjoy today. Celebrate the #YEG spirit – Youth, Energy and Growth. The Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Alberta represents more than 1,500 business members including new home builders, renovators, developers, trade and supply companies and professional services.

ON THE MOVE

PACKING TIPS to make your move a little easier ❏ Gather boxes in all sizes from friends, neighbours and stores.

❏ Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, foam

pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers and small towels to use as padding inside boxes.

❏ Create a “portable packing kit” with marking pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine and scissors. Carry it with you as you pack up items in your home.

❏ Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.

❏ Label each box with the name of the room in your new home where it should be placed.

❏ List the contents of the box on the side of it.

40 NEW CONDO GUIDE | VOLUME 21 ISSUE 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

❏ Clearly label boxes containing fragile items. ❏ Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat.

❏ Pack your TV, stereo and computer in their original boxes whenever possible.

❏ Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less. ❏ Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place

lighter items together into larger boxes. (Hint: Don’t pack all your books into one box!)

❏ Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive or

explosive items such as paint, gasoline and ammunition.

❏ Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move and keep it in an easy-to-find place.

100 Women…

2,400 Reasons to Celebrate! Graciously hosted at the home of Krishna Gupta,

Rohit Group of Companies, on Nov. 4, 2013, what started as a small gathering of friends in 2010 to fill baskets with items for WIN House, has grown to 100 women arriving with hundreds of beautiful, new items for “Baskets of Hope,” an initiative intended to help make Christmas special for women escaping violence. More than 2,400 new items were donated, everything from plush bathrobes, snuggly blankets and beautiful handbags, to chocolates and gift certificates – all intended to help wounded women feel cared about and valued. Baskets of Hope founder Dianne Young says, “I am overwhelmed with the response to what began as a small group of friends who joined me to do something to support women escaping violence. One-hundred women came together to reach out and touch the hearts of those who feel alone, scared and often forgotten. I am truly humbled by this outpouring of support. There are no words to describe the generosity of women in Edmonton… a wonderful demonstration of the special bond that links us all.”

Business leaders, community members, family and friends gathered to make the 2013 event a memorable one. Krishna Gupta, president of Rohit Charities closed the evening with, “Words cannot express my gratitude for what has been accomplished here and I want to thank each of you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to be kind and generous.”

What started as a small gathering of friends has grown to 100 women arriving with hundreds of new, beautiful items for “Baskets of Hope”, an initiative intended to help make Christmas special for women escaping violence About Baskets of Hope

Founded by Dianne Young in 2010, a handful of women gathered together to fill baskets with new, special items such as lotions, bubble bath, snuggly socks and scarves… the things women reach for when they need to feel comforted. This seed of an idea has grown into an annual event to support women’s shelters across Edmonton. 44 new condo Guide | Volume 21 issue 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

What’s Old is New Again

W

e’re all familiar with the standard practice of buying a new home in a new subdivision, but have you considered buying a new home in an old subdivision? While not mainstream yet, this practice is really catching on. One of the ways to reduce the “Urban Sprawl” type of development we currently have is to rejuvenate older areas of the city. The City of Edmonton has determined that we need at least 25% of our growth to be in existing areas to make us a more sustainable city. This means taking existing older areas and increasing their build density. Where there were 3 single family homes before, now we can build 4-5 row houses. We will also start seeing low-rise multifamily in these areas as well. This provides opportunity for some single family homes as well. This is a great sustainability model. What we are replacing are old, energy inefficient homes with new ones. Many of the areas popular for this currently have homes built in the 40’s to early 60’s. Back in that day, just building shelter was the priority. We had the baby boom going on and much of our skilled workforce was lost in the Second World War. Homes were built mostly for function with a couple of bedrooms a living room and an eat-in kitchen. They were small and there wasn’t a lot of thought into the design. Insulation and good windows weren’t a priority; neither was moisture control and restriction of air infiltration. Additionally, many of these homes are not good candidates for renovation, a better investment is a total teardown and redo. Some homes in these areas can be renovated economically, and these homes should be redone to a new home standard. There are a number of benefits to everyone with this type of development. New homes use less natural

gas, electricity and water than older homes. This helps the city increase density with little investment into the infrastructure, using services already in place. Environmentally, this is a huge win. Homes built in this period are energy hogs. Typically you can build a new home twice the size and still have lower energy consumption. C3 (formerly Alberta Climate Change Central) has identified renewing or renovating the existing housing stock as one of the best and least costly ways for Alberta to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Also, this type of redevelopment keeps the existing trees and soils as opposed to the land stripping that goes on in current new development. The homeowner benefits are the best of the bunch. Imagine waking up in your new home, going out for a coffee on your brand new deck in the shade of the 40 year old trees in your yard. Your new home is close to all the amenities you require: schools are just down the street as is the local grocery store. You have a great community league nearby and public transportation is within easy reach. Paints a pretty nice picture, doesn’t it? It’s not all sunshine and roses however. The city’s current process for redeveloping these areas is onerous to say the least, so patience is a requirement. The city is looking into changing this and is currently consulting industry and the public. This will change; it will just take a bit of time, and your patience will be rewarded.

DAVE TURNBULL Product Development Manager Landmark Group

To everyone who enjoys energy bills: We’re sorry. 50 NEW CONDO GUIDE | VOLUME 21 ISSUE 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

Here’s what you can do to Recycle, Renew and Reuse • Keep your car in good working order. Tune-ups and filter changes cut down on exhaust emissions, and you’ll get better gas mileage. When you change your oil, take your used motor oil to a recycling centre. • Use available transit alternatives. • Separate your garbage. Glass, aluminum, paper and even plastic can be recycled. If a recycling program is not directly available to you, contact your municipal sanitation department. • Donate reusable clothing and linens to charity. Most pick-up regularly in your area. • Become environmentally active in your community. You can make the world a better place to live... now and for future generations.

Worked through dozens of floorplans with a litany of builders. Negotiated the best deal possible. Borrowed enough money to get a queasy feeling in your stomach. Went back to the sales centre and signed the purchase agreement which is now approved and then – nothing. First nothing for days, then weeks and maybe a month or two.

Well, most builders follow very formalized building processes and as hard as it may be to believe, they generally are working on more than one or two homes at a time. Check with your builder to determine what their specific building process is...

After all that hard work by the buyer, there is kind of a natural expectation your builder will put every one of his staff and resources into building your home. After all, it’s a big deal - right! Well, most builders follow very formalized building processes and as hard as it may be to believe, they generally are working on more than one or two homes at a time. Check with your builder to determine what their specific building process is, but generally they follow similar steps. Those days and weeks when apparently nothing is going on with your house are indeed a busy time, in which the lot is being secured from the developer and registered if in fact the builder did not own the lot. I break the process down as follows and it might help in understanding why building a home can seem so slow, when in fact it’s probably not.

Stage 1 - The Paperwork The first part of building a home is preparation to build. This includes finalizing details of the home structurally and aesthetically. The home plan needs to be plotted onto the lot, a permit needs to be obtained from the city and all the trades need to be scheduled in advance to make sure they are available in an organized and cohesive manner. One major issue that happens here is obtaining the city permit. This is generated by a fairly small department that only has so many staff and during very busy periods (like spring or when the economy is booming) it can take extra weeks to get this vital piece of paper before any field work can begin.

for a week or two. Eventually they will pour footings and foundation walls and then – you guessed it – you wait for the concrete to set. This could be two weeks or more. The next sign of life is a framing crew creating floors, walls, stairs, ceilings and roof etc. This is an especially fun experience as your home rises from the ground (phoenix like) and becomes real. It is a time of tremendous pride for the owners. At this time you want to visit the site every day to watch the progress, but don’t. Framers will be moving around doing work on a few homes at a time so there will be some waiting periods for sure. Next are the windows and doors and then a period of waiting as the “specialists” arrive. These include electricians, plumbers, furnace installers, insulators and drywallers. You may have to wait a bit on each of them as they’re in high demand and depending on the timing and scheduling proficiency of previous steps they may be double booked by this point in construction.

Stage 3 - The Finish Following structural work, comes the interior and exterior finishing. Again, handled by specialists. Painters, flooring installers, carpet installers, tile setters, cabinet and countertop people, and finishing carpenters. Each follow the other in a timeline often impacted by some inconveniences that may add a day or even week to the finishing of your home. The point of this article is to allay fears that “no activity” on your home for a few days or even weeks, is not something to stress about. It’s almost predictable. Don’t call and harass the builder. Often, whatever is occurring is beyond their control and it is in their best interest to finish your home as fast as possible – because that’s when they get paid. Building a home is a complex transaction and some patience and a clear understanding of your builder’s process is a really good way to mitigate stress during those endless waiting periods.

Stage 2 - The Structure Your first big day will be when they dig the hole to pour the foundation, generally a month or two after the sale is finalized. This is your first tangible sign that one day you will actually have a home and if it happens to be pouring rain (remember last summer) then this step may be delayed

All-uminum you need // by Yanic Simard

When debating between metals in interior design,

2 Mixed Material Consoles

people usually focus on one iconic match-up: silver versus gold. Stainless steel also gets a lot of attention for its popularity in modern appliances (and Modern-period furnishings), but one contemporary favourite has gone a little overlooked: aluminum. Anodized (rust resistant) aluminum’s cool tones and light weight make it an excellent choice for a wide range of furnishings, from seating to lighting and everything in between. Since metals so easily mix with other materials, or each other, in both modern and traditional schemes, look no further than my list of aluminum treasures to give your home in the clouds a mineral infusion:

Designer Hilla Shamia’s cast stools start with the organic nature of raw wood, fusing it to a metal frame and celebrating the contrast between the two. Metal and wood is a timeless combination that balances traditional warmth with cool modern lines perfectly. Use a bench like this where you need flexible seating, and pull it up as a cocktail table when you’re having drinks for one.

1 Turned Dining Table Crate and Barrel’s Mallorca table pairs metallic legs (in a turnery design reminiscent of hand carved wood) with a marble top — both materials are cool and sleek, but the aluminum draws out the silvery marble veining, making the stone the real star. Contrast this piece with traditional bentwood seats in an inky blue finish, or get playful and gather mismatched chairs using the same white and aluminum elements in different ways.

3 Cool Cabinetry To achieve a

stunning yet accessible transitional look (and a touch of sparkle) in the kitchen or bathroom, consider switching to cabinet doors with windowed fronts and aluminum trim. continued on page 68…

It frames your dishes, glassware or wash towels like an art gallery display case, creating a dramatic statement but an airy atmosphere. Try Ikea’s various cabinet doors (such as the Lillangen) in this finish for a quick switch-out.

4 Metal Rocker The 1940s classic 1006 chair (the

Ten-oh-6, by Emeco) was originally designed for hard wear: nicknamed the Navy chair, it was commissioned by the US government to withstand abuse from both the elements and sailors, but now is a favourite for modern and transitional dining spaces. Philippe Starck’s Heritage Rocking Armchair updates this already contemporaryfeeling staple with a rocking base for a softer look. Add either this or the original to virtually any room for an easy update (available at Klaus Nienkamper and hip boutiques) — having been born and raised French I never live anywhere without a rocking chair.

5 Traveller’s Trunks While browsing Bethelin.com

I also noticed luggage-like metal trunks which actually serve as chests of drawers or wardrobes, underscoring how beautifully aluminum pairs with natural materials like leather. Use one or two tall pieces like this like a wall to divide a large room into two zones, or define a dressing area.

6 Sturdy Stool Metal stools are a popular choice for bar seating, even in private homes where the crowd of guests isn’t usually so rough. Always make sure however to measure your counter and stool for height: true bar stool seats (as opposed to counter seats), at around 30 inches tall, are only meant for higher bar counters starting at 40 inches. For a trendy and modern, winter-ready effect, drape a small faux sheepskin over each seat for some engaging contrast.

4 68

3 7 Working Classic The ageless Herman Miller desk chair (available from dwr.com) is such a designer favourite I even have several in my design studio. The clean lines of the simple upholstery and gently rounded metal edges create a more elegant look than the overly technical-looking selections of many corporate executives (while still providing stylish comfort).

8 Task Lamp Also available from DWR (short for Design Within Reach), the Tolomeo desk light translates the look of rusty old work lamps into a sparkling, architectural form that gives you light just where you need it while celebrating the beauty of a very functional material. The design captures this so perfectly, in fact, that the light ironically won the Compasso d’Oro award in 1989 — also known as the Golden Compass. Studio Swine’s Can City This project takes discarded aluminum cans (pulled from the streets of Sao Paolo), melts them down, and repurposes the raw materials to create artistic, handcrafted modern stools. It beautifies the world in two ways at once, and really goes to show: it’s time aluminum got the respect it deserves! Check out the project by visiting studioswine.com.

here are oh, so many benefits of condominium living – but the one that often tops the lists of purchasers is having access to wonderful amenities in gorgeously landscaped buildings without having to take care of maintenance and repairs. The time you would spend weeding the garden, raking leaves and shoveling snow can be spent instead soaking in the whirlpool, swimming, watching the latest film

You may think you will not use a pool or another amenity, but your guests may be happy to indulge.

sensation in the theatre, playing virtual golf, or engaging in any of the other activities available under your very own roof. Remember, however, that over time, all residences require upkeep – and that’s where the condo maintenance fee comes in. Your monthly payment is critical to ensuring that your quality of life remains high. Funds must be in place to handle arrangements for cleaning, upkeep and repairs of a condominium’s common areas. It’s important that you consider these fees fairly when you compare them to the expenses you’d incur in a lowrise home for similar services. Take security, for example. Many condominiums today offer 24/7 concierge service, and these professionals require salaries. If you were to add a security system to a lowrise home, you would pay a monthly fee for monitoring. Keep in mind, too, that a substantial percentage of condo maintenance fees covers utilities such as hydro, gas and water, which you would pay for separately from your mortgage in a lowrise home. The great thing is that many condos today offer individual hydro and water metering per suite. Most buyers are happy to pay for what they use, and they appreciate the fact that if they are away for weeks or months, their hydro and water bills are low for those periods. Looking at maintenance fees in the bigger picture, they also help to protect your real estate investment. Often, people forget that the ongoing cleaning and maintenance of things like elevators, the lobby and hallways is important. In addition, a portion of your maintenance fees goes toward the “reserve fund,” which remains on hand so that essential services can be paid for in the future. The condominium board administers the fund, which covers any unexpected repairs. Now and then, we hear from potential purchasers that they resent having to pay maintenance fees that support a particular amenity they do not plan to use – most commonly, the swimming pool. You should know that the costs to maintain and service a pool and whirlpool are a very small portion of the annual condominium budget. You may think you will not use a pool or another amenity, but your guests may be happy to indulge. The condo amenities also enhance the resale value of your suite in the future, and you never know – once you move in and see for yourself just how beautiful today’s amenities are, you may love the very things you thought you might not use! As I so often say, amenities are an extension of your living space, and our condo developers are creating simply stunning areas where neighbours and friends can gather without ever leaving the building. Again, it’s a matter of perspective. In a lowrise home, someone has to mow the lawn, weed the garden, and wash the outside windows. Hiring professionals to handle these chores costs money. Much of your condo maintenance fees go to items you would have to find the money for anyway. In the end, it’s so worth it to afford you luxury, convenience and free time.

Canadian snowbirds are taking flight, but is their insurance up in the air? TD Insurance poll reveals only half of Canadian snowbirds check travel insurance before leaving home

It’s getting cold out and Canada’s snowbirds are starting to head south, but are they properly protected while away from home? According to a recent TD Insurance survey only half of Canadians aged 50 and over checked their travel insurance policy before leaving for vacation, and only 16 per cent called their insurance provider to determine if they needed to update their policy. “Snowbirds have a unique set of insurance needs, different from most Canadian travellers,” says Dave Minor, a vice-president at TD Insurance. “Not only do they need to understand exactly what their travel insurance policy covers, but they may have to review auto, recreational vehicle, and home insurance policies - for both their property down south and back home before they travel.”

Here are some tips on travel, auto and home insurance for Canadian snowbirds heading south for the winter:

›› Travel insurance “Snowbirds should review the details of their travel medical insurance policy including whether or not there is a time limit for out of country coverage and what they need to know about pre-existing conditions and limitations,” says Minor. “If a snowbird has visited 72 new condo Guide | Volume 21 issue 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

a hospital or switched medications in the past 12 months, this information needs to be disclosed to their insurance provider, as a failure to do so may impact insurance coverage should they need to make a claim. Anyone who is unsure about a detail within their policy should just ask.” ›› Auto insurance According to the TD Insurance survey, 46 per cent of Canadian snowbirds incorrectly believe that if they are driving outside of Canada, their auto insurance policy will cover them, but this isn’t always the case. “Snowbirds need to call their insurance provider if they are taking their vehicle outside of Canada or the United States or if they plan to rent a vehicle for more than 30 days,” says Minor. “They should also consider increasing their liability limit given that claims in the United States can be expensive, and discuss that with either their provider or insurance agent.” For snowbirds travelling down south by motor home or RV, keep in mind that although insurance protection on recreational vehicles is similar to regular auto insurance, because this vehicle also serves as a home, it requires a unique policy. “If RV owners are increasing the amount of time they are living in their vehicle - for example living in the unit full time versus an occasional weekend getaway - then their policy may need to be revised,” says Minor. “Check with your insurance provider to find out what your needs are so you’re not left uncovered.” ›› Home insurance Only 12 per cent of Canadian snowbirds say they checked their home insurance policy to ensure their primary residence would be covered while on vacation. Making sure you take the necessary steps to protect your home before you travel will make the process easier, should you need to make a claim. “Often insurance policies have specific “away” requirements, which, if not fulfilled, could void coverage if your home is left unoccupied and unattended for an extended period of time,” says Minor. “Contact your insurance provider to make sure you know what steps to take to keep your current policy valid.” More information and tips about your insurance needs are available at tdinsurance.com.

ROSEMARY

I love the symmetry, texture and longevity of this wreath.

A really pretty fragrant look for this holiday season – pair this wreath in a very contemporary settings – it’s the tension using old with new that is exciting and fresh.

ASPIDISTRAS – OR HOUSE PLANT LEAVES How amazing is this – paired with your Christmas colours, accented with a few ornaments – gorgeous! You could also use corn husks, which is more typical of this design

Make Your Move

oving when ice and snow are in the daily forecast isn’t a popular choice for many Canadians. It’s cold and slippery; but with some extra safety precautions, winter moving also has many advantages.

Keep cosy. Carry extra warm clothes for you and your family – including hats, gloves and snow pants. Pack these ahead of time and clearly label them so you can locate them immediately.

moving

Moving last minute? No problem, if it’s during the cold months. Choosing to move in the “off season” – sometime between November and March – can save you time and money. Summer is the busiest season for moving companies. This means you must be well prepared, booking six to eight weeks in advance to ensure your preferred moving company is available. Not only are they higher in demand but generally their rates are also higher. Some companies may be more willing to negotiate their rates during the winter months as they’re competing for business during the slow season. Likewise, less rush and stress for companies in the winter means you get their best employees resulting in a higher quality of service. With everything booked, now comes the packing. Follow these tips for a relaxed and toasty move – no matter what’s going on outside those frosted windows. ›› Have a contingency plan. Keep up to date with local weather forecasts and change your plans accordingly. If a big snowfall or freezing rain is expected on moving day, don’t risk it. ›› Keep cosy. Carry extra warm clothes for you and your family – including hats, gloves and snow pants. Pack these ahead of time and clearly label them so you can locate them easily. ›› Remember your items will be in a non-heated environment for a while. Ensure your plants, electronics and liquids are properly packed and protected from the cold. ›› Allow extra time on the move day – cold weather slows things down. Additionally, rushing in the winter can lead to accidents and injuries. ›› Have driveways and sidewalks cleared of snow before the movers arrive. Your driveway needs to be ploughed wider than usual – enough to allow the moving truck’s loading ramp to be positioned as close to your front door as possible. Lay plywood down on muddy or slushy areas. Slipping can not only lead to dropped boxes and broken possessions but also personal injury. ›› Quality movers will use floor runners to protect your floors in high-traffic areas, but for extra protection inside, cover your floors to protect them from tracked-in snow, mud and salt. ›› Drive safe. Make sure maintenance and service on your vehicles is current. Check the air pressure on your tires and ensure the trunk is equipped with emergency kits (matches, flashlight and food), blankets and shovels. Drive slowly with extra caution. ›› Be certain that your heating company for your new home is aware of your move-in day. Wintertime moving doesn’t have to be wet and miserable. With these tips, you’ll be packed up, moved and basking in the warmth of your new home before you know it. NewCondoGuide.com | Volume 21 issue 13 | new condo Guide 85


What to do when you hire a contractor Many experienced and reliable contractors work in your community – highly skilled professionals who do business the right way. Unfortunately not all contractors play by the same rules. Some cut corners to offer lower prices. They promise you a “good deal” as long as nothing is written down and you pay in cash. These cash deals can mean a lot of risk for you. Contractors who don’t do business properly don’t protect you from accidents or their mistakes. If there is a work-related injury or damage to your home, you could face lawsuits and financial loss. You could be responsible for your contractor’s unpaid bills. And you could be stuck with work that is incomplete or badly done. While serious, these risks are easy to avoid. Before you agree to let anyone work on your home, take these three simple steps: know who you’re dealing with, make sure you’re protected from risks, and always Get in in Writing! ™

How to find

a good contractor • Ask friends, family and neighbors about contractors they have hired to work on their homes. • Contact your local Home Builders’ Association or other trade association for a list of professional contractors in your community. • Ask your local building materials store if it has a list of recommended contractors. • Ask your utility company if it has a list of recommended contractors. • Check with your local Better Business Bureau to find out if a contractor is a member.

For more advice, including detailed information about contracts plus worksheets you can use when interviewing contractors, visit HiringAContractor.com For a listing of builder and renovator members, contact the Canadian Home Builder’s Association - Edmonton Region. Call 425-1020 or visit their website at chbaedmonton.ca Get it in Writing! provides information to help you make informed choices when you build, renovate, or repair your home.

Calculate your mortgage payments interest rate

mortgage amount ÷ 1,000

monthly payment

example: 5%

25 years

5.82

125 (mortgage amount $125,000)

$

Follow these steps to see if you’ll qualify for a mortgage on your dream condo 01 Calculate the combined monthly before-tax income of you and your spouse. 02 Divide by three. This figure is the monthly payment you can afford to make on your condo. 03 Take the total price of the condo and subtract the amount of money you expect to make as a down payment. This is the money you will have to borrow.

04 Refer to the chart on the opposite page. Look down the left column and locate the interest rate you expect to pay. Line this up with the amortization period of your choice. (Most first-time buyers take the 25-year amortization.) 05 Multiply this figure by the amount you need to borrow. Divide by 1,000.

88 new condo Guide | Volume 21 issue 13 | NewCondoGuide.com

06 Add to this your estimated monthly heating costs and monthly property taxes. 07 If this figure is equal to or less than one-third of your gross monthly income (calculated in Step 2), you’ll qualify for a mortgage on your dream condo.

Bear in mind that this is a rough estimate. If you have several other large loans already, you may qualify for less. Also, banks and trust companies vary in their policies. The best way to know what you can afford is to go to the lending institution of your choice and get pre-qualified.
