Welcome to Spring

The lawns and gardens are coming alive at Granite Springs but the owners are not doing the strenuous spring clean-up this year.

“We can enjoy the spring.  Since we made our home at Granite Springs, we have more time for leisurely walks; we have more time for our sports and hobbies;  we have more time to devote to our volunteer work; we have more time for visiting family and friends; and some of us may even have time to visit the golf course next door.  We are especially enjoying the freedom the condo lifestyle allows us and spending time with the new friends we have made here at Granite Springs”.

Yes, these are comments frequently heard at the Granite Springs office.

We invite you to view our model suites and to become part of our Granite Springs community.

ICF Construction

The quality and integrity of our buildings begin with the state of the art construction method known as Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs).

Please view the above video to learn more about the ICF construction process.

The forms lock together somewhat like Lego Ò. Concrete is pumped into the cavity forming the structural walls of the building. After the cement has cured or firmed up the forms are left in place to provide the following benefits:pic2

  • Superior structural integrity
  • Insulation
  • Sound attenuation
  • Space to run electrical and plumbing
  • Backing for interior wallboard and exterior siding, stone, and cedar

Thus enabling us to deliver to you a home that is

  • inexpensive to heat and cool
  • sheltered from suite to suite sounds as well as exterior noises
  • deep window sills for plants and treasures
  • affordable condo fees for years to come

Underground Parking

pic1Just picture this: It’s raining cats and dogs (OK maybe not really cats and dogs), you pull into 391 Manitoba Street, drive up to your building, press the garage remote control, the overhead door glides quietly upward, you jockey your car into its very own space, collect your belongings and proceed to the elevator and with the press of a button you are whisked to your suites’ floor.

So here you are at home. Warm, dry and hassle-free.  Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
