Outstanding Cottage & Cabin Foundations in Winnipeg

Enjoy generations of relaxation and family-time at your cottage or cabin by supporting it with a helical pile foundation. Easier than other solutions, resists water, protects against frost and movement


Why choose a helical pile foundation for your cottage or cabin?

Nothing kills you dreams of summer relaxation faster than foundation issues. The soils in Manitoba cottage country are often loose, muddy, or facing high water tables. That's why cabins with foundations that are sinking down or pushing upwards are a common sight. A helical pile anchors securely in strong soil layers and protects against movement.

  • Steel pile shaft provides thousands of pounds of load capacity and is resistant to damage and corrosion

  • Durable "helix plate" anchors firmly below the frost line, defending your cottage or cabin against movement due to frost

  • Easy to transition from the pile to your building with our ultra-tough adjustable adapters

Why Helical Pile Foundations for Cottages And Cabins In Manitoba?

  • Eliminates/Reduces Excavation

    Installing certain foundations can involve serious disruption to your land. There's holes to dig, dirt to clear, and a mess to deal with. Helical piles let you skip all that nonsense and have a secure foundation installed with zero (or minimal) digging or disturbance to your property. We even use ground mats to protect your grass from our equipment!

  • Ideal For Soft & Loose Soils

    Much of the soil in Manitoba cottage country is comprised of soft, loose, wet material. Collapsing dirt makes excavating a chore and long-term performance can suffer in weak soil. A helical foundation, conversely, was designed from the start to deliver shocking load capacities even in treacherous conditions.

  • Protects Your Foundation From Frost

    As your ground freezes and melts, this movement exerts enormous pressure on your foundation. This can cause concrete foundations to sink and shift. Because helical piles have a narrow shaft in comparison to the helix plates, the freeze/melt cycle can't apply the same force as with concrete. The result? Unshakeable support.

  • Minimal Equipment Required

    All we need to install your helical foundation for a cottage or cabin is a compact and efficient mini-excavator. That means we can install your foundation quickly and efficiently. It also means our crews can put your foundation in places other technologies simply can't go. Tight access or a small building site? No problem.


A Foundation in 1-2-3 for Your Cottage Or Cabin


Helical piles are installed 10' to 15' deep in order to prevent movement from frost during Manitoba winters



An adjustable adapter is installed at the top of the helical pile to provide an easy platform to connect your foundation to your addition


Your cottage or cabin can now be built on a durable and reliable foundation that will deliver generations of firm support
