Totally impressed by the work @copperworkscanada is doing on Ossington Ave. This corner block will be changed forever in a good way. Can’t wait to finish and take down the scaffold next week. Thanks Lee and his team!

Roger V working with silicone to make a good impression of the frieze detail in the Mansion. Plaster work is getting wrapped up now by our skilled team. Thanks guys (at Toronto, Ontario)

Went to the Evergreen Brickwork today for a kiln visit. What a great site and adaptive reuse. (at Evergreen Brick Works)

From 1881 to 2018 - Lead Coated Copper rocks! @copperworkscanada - Lee and his talented team are about to reveal their work on the pilaster brackets, cornice and pediment sign. (at Toronto, Ontario)

Some added features to a barrel vaulted chimney cap. 2lb lead sheet is folded with a single seam and fastened to the top of the chimney where freeze thaw will penetrate. Helical ties were also used to tie the outer walls of the arches to help secure the walls.

Sunroom completed. Slate, copper, wood restoration, stained glass repairs, stone restoration and traditional English tuckpointing. A lot for an exterior sunroom.

Some great shots from John the homeowner. Steve is working on the chimney, Joseph on the clay tiles and Jeremy repointing the purple sandstone. Awesome work guys - can wait to reveal this one. (at Toronto, Ontario)
