This Woodhaven deck features a lovely combo of two colours, Serenity Black Walnut for the picture framing detail and Amberwood for the main decking.
“We have a beautiful new Wolf deck. Jake looked after getting the permit and variance for us and although the weather did not cooperate this spring, the guys worked rain and shine to complete the deck. Excellent craftmanship.”
The idea has been in your head, you want to maximize the enjoyment of your outdoor living space this upcoming summer season but you’re wondering when is the right time to call someone . Well, if you’ve been considering a new deck build or a re-vamp of your outdoor living space, now is the time to set the plan in motion. With spring just around the corner, deck builders are beginning to fill their calendars with projects. Starting the process early can add extra weeks and sometimes months to enjoying your deck and an opportunity at getting your project scheduled in early so that your deck can be enjoyed longer into the season.
The process involves many moving parts which all take time: A consult, quoting time, retainers to solidify your date in the calendar, permit pulling (which we all know can take some time with the City of Winnipeg), ordering material, scheduling screw piling and of course the biggest component weather.
To schedule a consult with OSBORNE CONSTRUCTION, please fill out the contact form on our website. If you can, provide some detail to the size and design of the deck, noting if anything is currently there that needs to be demo’d and if you would like our company to do so.

It was a long but rewarding weekend!
Our show booth success couldn’t have been achieved without the help of some of our product sponsors.
Osborne Construction called upon to build brand new maintenance free PVC Wolf deck for Little Brown Jug’s patio oasis update. A MUST visit patio/brewery combo if you’re in the downtown area.
This project was exciting venture to be apart of along side SMLXL Contracting and the talented Design Shop Winnipeg. Once a downtown parking lot, this simple patio space became a beautiful hidden oasis with the help of these talented designers and a vision from the owner.
Over the course of a month our crew constructed a multi-level patio featuring Wolf Serenity decking to create a long lasting, maintenance-free option for the Little Brown Jug patio space.
You’ve made the investment, your deck is complete, you now have a beautiful durable WOLF Serenity deck that friends are talking about and is now contributing to the over all enjoyment and quality of your outdoor living space. On top of that, you’ve made the investment of hiring a Wolf PRO, which gains you an additional 5 years on your 25 year stain & fade warranty for the cost of any additional labor.
With that being said, like all things in life, there is always a small responsibility of general maintenance that the consumer assumes to keep their deck looking young.
In short, ROUTINE CLEANING • At least twice per year is highly suggested.
Upon completion of your new WOLF Decking project, Osborne Construction will also provide you with the Care & Maintenance info sheet as a reminder of the general maintenance required. All customers will also be encouraged to to their WOLF Decking project to be registered in order to receive the extended warranty application for any warranty issues in the future.
Kitchen renovations are truly one of our favourite scopes of work. “Kitchens have a natural way of bringing people closer together. Whether you are cooking with your family or having a meal with your friends, you are opening an opportunity for connection. ”
We couldn’t relate more to this idea as our company completed our own large kitchen renovation in 2022 with two young toddlers under three. Complete kitchen renovations are not for the faint of heart, they require a great deal of planning, patience, budget and trust that the outcome will greatly improve your quality of living in your space and will one day be a return investment.
We begun the process of hiring Greenslade Bath|Kitchen|Details to both design and manufacture our custom kitchen. They specialize in offering kitchen, bath and millwork design solutions for your ideal space. From small scale renovations to new builds, their goal is to make great design accessible and achievable for everyone – to create beautifully personal spaces for uncomplicated living.
Kelly and the team at Greenslade worked closely with us to bring our dated, tiny and very closed off kitchen design to life, complete with a full scale 3D rendering that allowed us to see our project come to life before the Reno’s even begun.
Once we confirmed a design we liked the hard part begun …
One large structural wall needed to come down to make the existing dinning room & kitchen become one large open concept. Along with needing a new beam in place, all major plumbing & heating needed to be relocated. Imagine washing toddler Tupperware and dishes in the bathroom sink and bathtub for months, as mentioned, a major kitchen renovation is an all in project!
Pictures of the Final Kitchen Renovation reveal are coming shortly …
Check back to see the final images of this beautiful Greenslade Kitchen Renovation. You’re going to want to see the before and after of this beautiful remodel, I promise!
We can truly say that it has already improved the quality of our life with our two young girls, family & friends. We host more dinners & parties, and the open-concept and large kitchen island serve as the focal point for our daily gatherings and communication. While there was a lot of exhaustion, patience, frustration, and make-shift meals that went into this labour of love, we can absolutely say it was absolutely worth the long haul and we would encourage anyone of our potential clients & families to stick out in order to reach your dream kitchen renovation goals.
Let Osborne Construction guide you through the experience, and transform one of the most utilized living spaces in your home into a focal point that brings family & friends together.

Sample Portfolio of work
Having a rough idea on the size of your ideal outdoor living-space/custom deck & the layout/design is a start. Think about features and accessories that your considering, the must-have’s and wishes (ex. privacy fence/wall, pergola, lights, railing types, colour(s), wrap around stairs, multi-level, picture-frame etc).
Need some inspiration on style and layout? There are several sources available to help get an idea of what you want. Pinterest, Houzz, the Wolf Pro website, and our gallery of past projects & Instagram accont are all great resources. Keep in mind, Osborne Construction is not a design company so you will need to have a bit of an idea of what you are looking for to help make the consult flow a little easier; having a list of your must-haves and wishes as well as some pictures are a great way to help us get a better understanding for what you envision. Osborne Construction is happy to work alongside hardscape designers and their proposed designs/plans. Not using a designer or hardscape/landscaping company, 3D renderings for large-scale projects are available to Osborne Construction clients that have committed to a quote, rendering agreement and deposit to help visualize and finalize all the little details before construction begins. After all, this is a large investment and we want you to be extremely happy with the final result.
Below is a small sample of our custom maintenance-free decks, both large scale and small scale.
Welcome to Osborne Construction. If you’ve visited before, you might notice that Osborne Construction has had an impressive re-vamp thanks to http://itsgrahamjones.website/ . If you’re new here, welcome! We still have a few more aesthetic tweaks, some additional content and galleries to work on, but we are almost there and thank you for your patience.
Take a look around
While we don’t have as much up on the website as we’d like, please take some time to read about our company and check out some of our work by visiting the gallery.
In the future, Osborne Construction will be featuring blog posts dedicated to complete projects from start to finish. This will give you a good idea of some of the products used, the benefits behind the choices and materials used and how the project came together from start to finish.
After completing a modern & contemporary re-vamp to the front exterior of their home, the lovely couple of this Charleswood home were ready to upgrade their almost 23 year old wood deck as a refresh to their outdoor living space that would match the feel & aesthetic of their new frontage.
Osborne Construction took the time to meet with the homeowners to discuss their current design and what features and upgrades they were looking to incorporate into their new deck. These homeowners had a very good idea upon meeting with Osborne Construction what they were looking for, from size, materials, and aesthetic features making the scope of the project very clear for Osborne Construction.
Upon solidifying the details of the project & signing a contract, the homeowners were eager to get the project underway with our company.
See their pre-existing deck prior to demolition below.
Starting with the Foundation Work
Osborne Construction removed the existing deck to start the new foundation on a clean slate. On this particular project, the homeowners choose to move forward with the suggested Post Tech Screw Piles.
Post tech screw piles offer a number of advantages over traditional concrete piles, especially in our climate. When building a custom deck for your forever home or making a substantial investment on a low-maintenance PVC or Composite Deck, Osborne Construction will almost always recommend Screw piles over traditional concrete. Here are just a few of the reasons why. https://postechpiles.com/thermal-piles/#piles-vs-concrete
The Finished Product
Loving the layout & flow of the original design, the homeowners choose to keep their new deck fairly consistent to the original plan with some new accessories; the decking was replaced with a beautiful pressure-treated Barefoot Brown wood which now features a 16 x 10 custom Pergola and a wrap-around stair case. Some may ask, why a Pergola, what’s the point? Pergola’s offer many great benefits, and in this case, it created a beautiful visual aesthetic that not only defines a hosting space on the deck but adds an element that allowed these plant loving homeowners to hang flower baskets.
This 320 square foot deck was completed in a little over a week during the early summer months of 2020. Have any questions about the details of this deck and rough investment on a project similar to this style and design, contact Osborne Construction.
