Tyler Milnthorp and his partners formed their company's Clic Lifestyles with the small ambition of changing the home construction industry.
Their first project consists of four units called Ross on Eighth, which is currently shaped on 8th Avenue in the mature community of Rosscarrock to the south of Bow Trail and west of Westbrook Mall .
"We literally come into the industry with a full intention to change how homes are built," Milnthorp states, with a hard-to-resist enthusiasm .
Ross on the Eighth is a small start, but it definitely breaks the mold. It's a modular project, with sections already made in a plant in Bow Island and have a truck to the construction site. It is also mainly in solar energy, with solar panels included in the shared garage, so as not to become unexpected appendices on their own homes. Milnthorp says that homeowners share equally in the power generated by the sun and receive individual bills for any additional power they extract from the grid.
Milnthorp, realtor, "serial entrepreneur" and mab framer, says the idea for Clic Lifestyle is being born as he chatted with the owner of West Ridge Fine Homes's Marc Lehouillier. "Both had very strong views on the future of home homes," said Milnthorp. They liaised with the chief architect of Calgary Brent Ellergodt to realize their vision.
"Clic was born of shared experiences," said Milnthorp. "Efficiency in home-building has not changed since the 1940's, but demand is rising and prices are pulled back."
The aim of Clic is to change the equation by making modular homes cool – and more efficient than traditional stick homes.
An example of this efficiency is the construction timetable. The concrete base for Ross on the Eighth stays, modules have slate to reach the February 28 site and Milnthorp will say that homes will be ready to occupy by March 25.
The modules are doing fast construction but it does assure potential buyers that the cap will also provide higher quality. Although the homes of the external wall stick from a back-up chipboard by insulation and drywall, it is noted that there are modular design calls for chipboard, insulation, second tier of chipboard and final layer of drywall. This is saying, making them stand better for the changing climate of Calgary.
Ross has the eighth condoles of all 1,155 square feet, two bedrooms and two and a half bath design, with an open plan kitchen, living area and dining area, together with a first floor powder room and two bedrooms overhead. Each bedroom has a bath en-suite and the closet master has a walk in. Each basement unit has 430 square feet that can be finished as an upgrade, with a bedroom, a second, full storage space and bath.
Fisher & Paykel machine kitchens, quartz counters, together with Panasonic microwave fan and Faber Stilo fabric. Prices start at the middle $ 500,000.
Milnthorp says that the way of living sympathy with low support and an inner city location are intended to appeal to downsizers and millennials, with rapid access to Bow on downtown facilities, CTrain stations, schools, shopping and the Shaganappi Golf Course.
