About this Project
Welcome to The Franklin at 513 3rd Street East. The Franklin was awarded the Best Custom Home award in the 2018 Bridges Awards. This award was voted on by industry professionals in each province throughout Canada. We are a company that prides ourselves on our team of highly skilled tradespeople and the unique elements we incorporate into our projects.
We put our skills on display when we built this modern Craftsman home that blends into, and becomes part of, one of the city’s most beautiful older areas. The neighborhood of Buena Vista was developed in Saskatoon starting in 1906 and generally completed around the end of the second world war. Hence, our design pays homage to the old two story homes common to this area. A diverse use of natural wood and finishes, a steep roof, and large front porch were essential elements to stay true to the classic design of the era.
But unlike it’s older counterparts, The Franklin is bright, spacious, energy efficient, and highly functional. A Craftsman is a collection of spaces blending together through hand-crafted detail. Each space in this house is typical to the Craftsman style yet brought forth with a modern harmonization of textures, design and functionality that make it uniquely modern.
