Talk about a company excited and eager to be a part of #BCHGS17! Lindsay and her team @novusglassbc are the definition of “Going the Extra Mile” and that’s why they snagged the award.

Sustainability is crucial, and this team from @naturally_crafted knows it! An innovative contracting company with a focus on sustainable practices and renovations, they took home the prize for Best Small Space at this year’s #BCHGS17, and of course a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. #MPEShowLove
What will they think of next? The @telus Future Home at this year’s #BCHGS17 came complete with tons of gadgets powered by Telus PureFibre™.

It’s all about local. We were lucky to have Chris Oliveira of @fablediner present on the #BCHGS17 Cooking Stage this year to demo a ketchup-less cottage pie. Fable Diner sources their ingredients locally so you can ensure you’re always getting the freshest, most natural produce, just the way it should be. #FacesOfTheShow
One of our favourite parts of #BCHGS17 were the amazing outdoor displays, like this one by @nolimitlandscaping. The beautiful stonework and variety of plants make it look magazine-worthy, and the seating area complete with a TV and water feature? Now that backyard is what dreams are made of!
