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. 



you're a very very outgoing chick..glad you had a great time,and thanks for posting!
take care

Web address for the Restore is actually www.TorontoRestores.com, not www.TorontoRestore.com


Oh gosh Andrew, thank you so much for catching that! We'll add a thing to correct it. Can't believe we missed that. Thanks again.

We had a plumbers convention not too long ago, wasn't half as fun. I'm coming to the next one!

I have never been to a plumbers convention. I have never even heard of one before.

I used to go to plumbers conventions all the time back when I worked in the industry. Ours were pretty boring most of the time, but every now and then we would do something fun.
