Writer and Freelance reporter Jennifer Lavaliere article in the August 3, 2016 edition of the Huffington Post gives readers a snapshot on how Steve Zaleschuk and FRC has gone from idea to concept in the Big World of Tiny Homes.
It wasn’t even a year ago when a small idea popped into the head of Steve Zaleschuk.
Unbeknownst to him at the time, the thought would snowball into something big, and fast. Zaleschuk, a resident of Sturgeon County, Alberta, decided to get into the big business of building tiny homes.
With 30 plus years of construction experience on his side, Zaleschuk started his business, Finished Right Contracting (FRC) last fall. He educated himself on the tiny home movement, researched materials, and tiny home building plans, developed a website, and simply got to work. He hasn’t looked back since.
Zaleschuk builds the homes on an 80-acre farm not far from Morinville, Alberta (close to the City of Edmonton). His latest labour of love is a micro-cabin for Parks Canada. The cabin is a small square building with large tinted windows and a beautiful wood exterior. It’s part of a pilot project that may see many more tiny cabins erected in national parks across the country. According to Zaleschuck, FRC was one of only two tiny home builders asked to build a prototype.
