I'm new to this forum and we purchased a Mackenzie B in Encore for closing in summer 2016. Minto has been great so far!

Just wanted to say the aerial pictures are amazing!!! They are very much appreciated. Thank you!

I've been working on a 3D rendering of our new home in Home Designer Architectural. If you'd like to see what the inside of a Mackenzie looks like, here are some video walkthroughs. It is the reverse orientation. I don't guarantee they are accurate at all but they are based on the measurements given in the floor plan and best guesses.

Apefoot81, anytime. I'll keep 'em coming, if you're interested

And I love the walk-through you did. What software did you use and how long did it take you?

Yep, always interested! Thanks!

I used Home Designer Architectural 2016: https://www.homedesignersoftware.com/. I've been working on it off and on since we bought earlier in the year. Maybe 20 hours of work? It's not too hard to use but I find you have to invest time in watching the tutorials to learn how it works, otherwise it's not so easy.

Does anyone know approximately how many days it would take Minto to do the electrical work for a house? I'm just talking about the boxes and wires...not including installing the actual switches, outlets, and fixtures.

Also - check your windows! We've already spotted a broken one!

Looks like some nice progress, thanks!

Has anyone moved in yet over in the almost finished lots near the path?

Looks like some of the homes facing 10th line are now occupied (furniture inside). Mine backs onto the path and will be ready in a few weeks.

A few people moved in last week and this week also. I know there's a few houses closing mid November also. Very exciting times for those folks!

The "free" Rogers deal is no longer available. Instead, they are offering a discount on services (cable, phone, internet) for a 2 year period.
Can't recall the details of what they were offering. I inquired back in July when the promotion had just ended.
Haven't checked with Bell to see what they would offer.
If you find out specifics, please post!
