Tucked into the North Saskatchewan River Valley, the Town of Devon offers residents a wealth of opportunities, especially considering the fact that it’s a smaller town somewhat removed from the big city of Edmonton. If you’ve been looking for a quieter lifestyle with a lot of social connections, come take a look at this thriving town.
As you start the design work on your new home, you’re probably focused on some of the more obvious things. People tend to pay a lot of attention to the kitchen counters, the flooring, and the general “look” of the home, but there are plenty of smaller things that can make a big difference.
While many people are focused on finding a neighbourhood as close to the downtown Edmonton area as possible, some would prefer to get away from the craziness of the city. If this sounds like you, it’s time to check out the community of Ruisseau.
As technology improves, it becomes increasingly easy to make your home more secure. These days you no longer have to pay a security company hundreds of dollars to monitor your home or rely on your neighbours to keep an eye on your place while you’re away on vacation.

With the rough grading finished, your builder will finally be able to start constructing the home you’ve been dreaming about. The next steps are all about building a strong foundation for your home and creating sturdy “bones” (its structure).

However, you should carefully consider the following mistakes that some people make. If you avoid these things, you’re likely to feel more confident about the entire process.
