Workshop Build, June 2019

Introducing Lara Whatmore of Tall Pines Sign Co.  

Lara is the owner of Tall Pines Sign Co. a sign making company right here in Nova Scotia. What started as a hobby grew into a passion-fueled business of making beautiful wooden art. This month we announced the beginning of an exciting partnership with Lara. We’ll be working together to build Lara’s dream workshop so she can continue to produce the beautiful signs that warm many homes across Atlantic Canada and beyond. 

The month of June brought many visits from Lara and her family. Lara and her husband sat down with Rob from our estimating team to plan out her workshop.

Once planning was complete we were able to order supplies. Mid-June the first building materials were delivered and the foundation was laid.

June brought lots of excitment and a fun collaboration. We’re looking forward to watching the workshop come to life over the next few months. If you’d like to stay up to date on the progress, follow @payzanthhbc and @tall_pines_sign_co on Instagram.
