UPDATE: September 27, 2018
On Saturday, the builders who’ve been in a friendly feud in Blackfalds are coming together for a BBQ and street party from noon to 4 pm at the Abbey Platinum Master Built show home located at 5934 Panorama Drive. All in good sport, both Abbey Platinum Master Built and BlackWolf Custom Homes are inviting everyone out to check out this terrific new neighbourhood and help them raise money for the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.
Both builders have been trying to upstage each other with deals for the past 3 weeks, and you may be the beneficiary of some amazing upgrades to your new home. Plan to make the trip to Blackfalds on Saturday. Maybe you’ll find yourself in a seriously upgraded new home and you can feel good about helping the Child Advocacy Centre.
Scroll down to see a video featuring the builders and to view photos of their outstanding homes.
It started out as a simple promotion to help sell homes at the new Panorama Estates neighbourhood in Blackfalds. It’s turned into a bit of a feud that will cost two home building companies thousands of dollars. In early September Abbey Platinum Master Built decided to offer some small upgrades to sweeten the deal for perspective home buyers. Their advertising was noticed by the competitor literally down to block. Black Wolf Custom Homes, a new home builder decided this might be an opportunity to grab some attention for one of their homes in Panorama Estates. One thing has lead to another and now both home builders are offering multiple deals that will save whoever buys these homes thousands of dollars!
Here’s what the builders have to say…

About the Calgary MFRC
The Calgary MFRC supports families of our Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members within our service area of Southern Alberta, including Red Deer and Lethbridge. Our CAF soldiers, veterans and their family members face unique challenges that make being in the military an occupation different from any other. At the MFRC we aim to help lessen the impact of these unique challenges, which includes frequent separations, extended deployments and risks. The MFRC is a registered charity run by a volunteer board of directors that was started in 1991 by the Department of National Defense in conjunction with the Military Family Support Program.

We offer a variety of programs and services including mental health supports, social activities, workshops and training, family separation and reunification support, deployment support, children and youth programs, and referral services to help. Our families are the strength behind the uniform, and we’re here for them.
The Calgary MFRC has satellite offices in both Red Deer and Lethbridge. Each office caters to the specific needs of the forces in their areas. The Red Deer Branch is based at the Cormack Armory and serves a large part of Central Alberta.
