Toronto Contractors are Fun

I met some funny, interesting and even sweaty contractors at the Toronto Habitat for Humanity BBQ.  We scarfed burgers, played with tools and toured the amazing building supplies at the Habitat ReStore.  I was just born lucky.  Thanks again to our sponsors - HomeStars.com (local ratings for when you need to find a great contractor), DeWALT (hot construction-grade power tools), Irwin Tools (slick, gorgeous hand tools), Duke Pubs (fresh burgers), Rickard's Red (icy beer).  You guys rock.
