Can you trace your interest in construction and design back to a particular influence?

My passion for construction and woodworking was ignited during my childhood as I worked alongside my dad, a skilled craftsman & carpenter. Those formative years spent learning and creating together laid the foundation for my passion. As I grew older, my skills and love for the craft blossomed, eventually leading me to establish Remont Construction.

Do you remember when you felt amazed by a well-designed space?

I felt amazed when completing the design and construction of my own Pinehaus cabin. The combination of rustic charm and modern elegance created an inviting and enchanting ambiance. The seamless integration of natural elements, warm wood finishes and large windows framing breathtaking views brought the beauty of the surrounding nature indoors. It was in that moment; I truly understood the power of a well-designed space to create a haven of tranquility and joy. This ignited my passion for creating spaces that not only captivate the senses but also touch the soul, leaving a lasting impression on anyone who enters.

You’ve built up a notable body of residential work. What are some major takeaways from building homes?

We have learned that design is a fundamental element in any build. It is not just about creating visually appealing spaces, but also ensuring functionality and efficiency. However, a key takeaway is the emphasis on the team. Collaborative effort between architects, designers, and construction teams are vital for successful execution. Effective communication, coordination, and shared vision among team members are crucial in delivering exceptional residential projects. The synergy within the team ultimately determines the success and satisfaction of homeowners.

Was construction something you’ve always felt strongly about or was it a gradual process of finding interest in the trade?

Construction is something I’ve always wanted to do, but was a gradual process: from starting as my dad’s helper, then working for other builders, and then taking on projects of my own.

Our work is strongly influenced by current factors and emerging technologies.
