LET'S GIVE YOUR HOME THE "FRESH START" YOU BOTH DESERVE!
My commitment with Fresh Start Projects is to deliver a better overall experience for my clients. By taking on fewer projects at once and really committing the time required to each and every project. Everybody knows you don't want a builder who is so busy that they can't invest the time it takes to deliver a great experience right through to the end. Most people want to feel like their project matters and that all due care and attention is happening while their project is underway. I am committed to that for my clients. Having been in the home building industry since 1998 Ernest has seen and been a part of a lot of projects. In 2001 he started a "no job too small" type of business. That grew until, in 2010 he became a founding partner in a general contracting company who's primary focus was residential construction from full gut renovations to additions and infills. Now Ernest has taken everything he's learned over the last 20+ years, both good and bad, and is re launching as Fresh Start Projects Inc. a client focused building company who's expertise lies in large residential projects. Ernest now feels that he can deliver an outstanding experience for his clients. Lets give your home the "Fresh Start" you both deserve! Fresh Start Projects Inc is an incorporated company, licensed with the city of Calgary and carries $2 million builder liability insurance. We are also Baeumler Approved, use Houzz pro to communicate with our clients and are BBB accredited.

Ernest did a fantastic job for us. We couldn't be more pleased. He installed metal privacy screens in a wall between our kitchen/living room. At the same time he also replaced some molding/trim around a couple of entry ways in the same area. From the beginning of the project he was consistently on time, he cleaned up behind himself during the day and at the end of each day, he was polite and professional. Truthfully he is a fantastic contractor. I will definitely hire him again, and would not hesitate to recommend him. Also, the end result of his work is amazing.
Fresh Start Projects Inc. is: honest, reliable and professional We first met Ernest a few years back when he had been working for a different company. At the time Ernest and crew showed up to bail us out of a kitchen reno gone bad (sleazy contractor tore down kitchen and walked out on us). He gave us comfort we were in good hands, and professionally took over and got the reno done to a final product better than we had originally hoped. We then hired Ernest to complete a 600 sqft deck and convert upstairs loft into bedroom. Was done on budget and on time. The latest opportunity we had with Enrest was this summer where he, as Fresh Start Projects Inc., tore down and built us a new fence. They worked through rain and shine to get the job done perfectly. Great attention to detail and kept us informed through the appopriate steps along the way. All during a COVID pandemic, where he respected and even exceeded our expectations to safety of our family.

We recently used Fresh Start Projects for an exterior and interior renovation at our home which involved replacing a concrete patio, replacing 3 exterior doors, spray foam insulating of a crawlspace, and remodeling of a large family room. We were very happy with the service that we received from Fresh Start Projects and Ernest. Ernest was thorough with his quote and we appreciated the realistic supplier estimates that he gave which allowed us to choose options we wanted without fear of overspending our budget. Ernest was timely and any issues that were discovered were brought to our attention and dealt with. Also, Ernest was willing to listen to our requests and offered helpful suggestions and improvements on scope changes that we wanted. Ernest was dependable and honest and was great to work with, and we appreciated his attention to detail and the thoughtful extra features that he went above and beyond to include. We would not hesitate to recommend Fresh Start Projects and Ernest to others and we are hoping that we can use him again for our next project. Jenny and Adam.
I have had the pleasure of working with Ernest for many years now. I have witnessed his dedication to his clients and their projects, and would highly recommend him for any renovation or new home. He has great on-site experience that many builders lack. He is honest and as a result provides great direction, whether it contributes to his bottom line or not. I look forward to working with him on any and all of his future projects!
In 2019, Wendy and I purchased a mid-1980’s era villa/bungalow. We wanted to make a number of changes to our new home so that it would better meet our particular needs and enable us to “age in place”. We knew we wanted to work with Fresh Start Projects Inc and Ernest Young, in particular, based on our past experience working with him on renovation projects at our first home. We knew Ernest as an honest, patient and dedicated craftsman. Wendy and I worked closely with Ernest to formulate a renovation plan which included: site preparation, building an art studio, tearing out walls to create a more spacious floor plan on the main floor and in the downstairs family room, replacing flooring in the kitchen, bathrooms and entry to the home, building much needed storage space in the basement and garage, upgrading utilities including electrical, HVAC and plumbing to code, painting the home from top to bottom, and site clean-up. Ernest worked with us to ensure that he clearly understood our objectives and he provided great advice based on his expertise and knowledge of construction – all with patience and humor. Ernest delivered the project on time and within budget. As in most renovation projects, unforeseen issues arose. These were quickly brought to our attention and dealt with in a prompt and economical manner. Wendy and I would not hesitate to use Fresh Start Projects Inc and Ernest for any future projects and we would highly recommend him to friends and family for any of their construction project needs.
