Four Elements

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labour, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life!

Our Roots

My moto is "BUILD IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME" ~ Peter Russell

Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1965 to British immigrants. We moved to the Sherwood Park, Strathcona County area in 1972 onto a small farm. I have lived, worked, and played for the last 41 years throughout the county.

Worked as a hired hand for Alberta farmers and ranchers as a young guy, started to learn the construction trade. Joined the Canadian forces as a Combat Engineer at the age of 17. Was trained to be a soldier but as an engineer we were trained in all construction and heavy equipment techniques as well.

Went back to school to NAIT in the Architectural Technology program graduating in 1986. Joined the Reid-Built Homes team in 1986 and have been building residential homes with several different companies for the last 27 years.

I have been a home designer, an estimator, a construction coordinator, a site supervisor, a private home builder, a project manager, and much more over my career. I have also built commercial, multifamily, apartments, and land development projects as well over the last 10 years. Have focused on home renovation over the last 4 years, started Four Elements Construction to accommodate the growing amount of referrals.
