Philip Wall, Director of Finance - Marketing Co-ordinator for Bigfoot Systems® called LuckyDuck because, plain and simple, the Bigfoot website had some problems. We looked over the site, made our recommendations, and got the go-ahead.
Bigfoot's plastic, pre-engineered footing forms are used with construction tubes. Dependable, versatile and built to last, Bigfoot delivers quality results fast. Bigfoot - the Original - is an innovative, award-winning product that works to save time, money and aggravation, whether you're a do-it-yourselfer, contractor or factory owner.
Meeting or exceeding building codes across North America, Bigfoot is manufactured from recycled
high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It is used not only as a pier footing, but also acts as an anchor
to prevent uplift in areas subject to high-velocity winds.
LuckyDuck is proud to say Bigfoot was designed, and is manufactured, right here in Nova Scotia!

"I would like to state my complete pleasure in having Jodie, of LuckyDuck Web Design handle our web building needs. Jodie added her creative talents, and skilled services to the information and pictures we provided, resulting in a professional website with which I am most happy.
It should be noted that not only did she create a new website for our company, but she also dealt with the removal of our previous website, which had serious web hosting and search engine issues. This created far more work for Jodie, but she completely resolved the problem, earning my utmost respect in her knowledge and capabilities.
I was told right up front what to expect, what would be done, and that's exactly what she did.
I'm one of those people who ask a lot of questions, and she answered every one of them promptly, and in great detail. Thank you Jodie. I appreciate the depth of your patience! All of this, I might add, was done at what I consider to be a very reasonable cost.
Jodie's upbeat, self assured manner instills confidence in her abilities, and rightfully so!
I would definitely recommend LuckyDuck Web Design without hesitation." .
