The Home Building Remedy

Welcome to the The Home Building Remedy Blog

An original Canadian resource for our northern build environment.

Welcome to our blog on topics of relevant to everyone interested in home ownership, maintenance, renovation, buying, and selling. RJ Miller Building Professionals Inc. provides home inspections, commercial property condition assessments, building code assessments, custom home design, and  other inspection and design services.


This blog has been a long time coming. While there is a lot of content available on all things houses, very little is written specifically for Canada: our climate, marketplace, building materials, legal system, and even owners are distinct. Much of the information I have found shared on social media for local consumption is not accurate, relevant, or even applicable to our houses. Today I am very excited to announce that this blog, The Home Building Remedy, will focus on precisely those gaps.
