2022 Wrap Up – TC Legend Homes Achievements & Company Culture

by | Dec 14, 2022

As we come towards the end of 2022, which in former years Winter was our slow season, the company is still quite busy with our six houses in the queue!

The end of the year is always a great time to reflect on these past four seasons and solar cycle.

Especially 2022… this was a record breaking year for TC Legend Homes!

The crew gathered for a Holiday party last Friday at Norm’s place, and took a moment to appreciate our team’s hard work and how far we’ve come….

One of my (Senna’s) favorite things about getting the crew all together are these EPIC potlucks! The team really brings their A-game! 🙂

The team & loved ones indulged in some Spiced Egg Nog, Hot Buttered Rum, Mulled Wine… and of course, dessert!

The kiddos had fun making gingerbread houses, candles, and compostable buildings! Here are the results of the Boys vs. Girls. Which one do you like most? Not sure they are net-zero energy though.

Nicole facilitated the White Elephant gift exchange. Jeff got a bunch of worker’s pencils, Mile’s got some Mad Libs, Dan got one of Isaac’s amazing pottery chalices, Nicole won a hangover kit, Jake got some truffles (which Nicole later stole!), Senna and her son got a Christmas blanket!

A knee brace, something called a ‘Damnit Doll,’ and Fun Facts for toilet reading were some other gifts that went around!

Such a big thank you to the team, our customers, subcontractors and of course, our loved ones & SUPPORT TEAM! We couldn’t do it nearly as well without you. 🙂

From the TC Family, we send you and your loved ones our warmest regards full of peace, health, happiness, and prosperity in the coming year.


Happy Holidays!
