Homeowner gets a turnkey home in the Laurentians

Winter 2015-2016, Montreal HOME

Lorne Schecter was worried. The foundation for his new country home, being built by BONE Structure on Lake Ouareau, had been laid, and it seemed too small.

Lorne admits that he’s not one for understanding blueprints, so he’d already had one site visit from Michelle Tremblay, vice-president (and co-founder with her husband) of BONE Structure.  Tremblay walked the site with Lorne before construction began and laid out sticks along the ground to show him where each wall would be, so he could visualize the rooms.

What’s Bred in the Bone

November 2015, In The Hills Magazine

No great leap of imagination is required to suspect that Lego, maker of the wildly popular plastic building bricks for children, helped inspire the founders of BONE Structure, a Montreal home-building company.

But Lego is no longer just for kids. For grownups, the company offers Lego Architecture – kits that enable folks to use the interlocking pieces to build scale models of such renowned buildings as the Louvre Crystal Pyramid and Fallingwater, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Pennsylvania. The sets even include doors and windows. With time and patience, you too could have a mini Eiffel Tower or Trevi Fountain in your home.

L’ossature d’acier supplantera-t-elle la structure de bois ?

September 2015, CASA

Actuellement, moins d’un pour cent des nouvelles résidences sont construites avec une ossature d’acier. Malgré tout, plusieurs croient que la donne changera d’ici quelques années et que l’ossature d’acier, si elle ne supplante pas la structure de bois, deviendra à tout le moins aussi populaire.

L’usage de l’acier dans la construction n’est pas nouveau. Tous les gratte-ciel sont là pour en témoigner, comme le très célèbre Empire State Buiding de New York construit de janvier 1930 à mai 1931. Mais si l’ossature d’acier a de l’âge dans les secteurs commercial et institutionnel, il en est tout autre dans le résidentiel, du moins ici au Québec, contrairement à l’Europe qui en fait usage depuis belle lurette.
