As a member of the Kingston Home Builders Association, Barr Homes participates in the Annual Parade of Homes, showcasing the talents of local builders. Barr Homes is a major sponsor of the yearly home show held at the Cataraqui Town Centre.
From supporting children’s teams in hockey and soccer to providing opportunities for local high school students to learn the ins and outs of homebuilding, Barr Homes gives back to the community that we are helping build.
Barr Homes partners with the QECVI Building Internship Program to teach the next generation of tradespeople. High school students studying building techniques are welcomed to our site where they are involved in constructing a house from the ground up.
Skills ranging from framing to finishing are taught in this unique ‘classroom’. The students proudly show off their handiwork in an open house at the end of the semester.
These students go on to become the trades that build houses for our community – giving them a head start in the right direction is a benefit for their future and ours!
In 2009, a local family, the Weeks, were devastated by a house fire. They were uninsured and lost everything in the disaster. Barr Homes stepped up and rebuilt the family’s home. Through generous contributions of trades people and members of the community, Barr Homes managed to help the Weeks family get back into their home.
Barr Homes contributed to the new Soccerplex located on Highway 6 between Amherstview and Odessa. We are providing our Barr Homes homeowners with homes to live in and nearby recreational facilities to enjoy. Amherstview is a growing and vibrant community featuring the beautiful waterfront of Lake Ontario and plenty of activities for all ages.
