Home Renovation Projects
Bold transformations and remodels that increase your homes resale value, and curb appeal. Designing and building your perfect spaces.
The Lake House
The Lakehouse is a mid-1970’s build that needed a lot of updating. The interior and exterior have both been completely renovated. We transformed this house from dated and mediocre to modern and bold!
We closed in the front porch for a bigger foyer and swapped out the white windows and siding for black windows, midnight blue siding and added a standing seam roof. Although the landscaping is still a work in progress… The landscaping now makes a statement. Retaining walls and walkways provide a wide and grand entrance. A rounded patio with North Star inlay is nestled in the pollinator and vegetable gardens. The front of this property is now low maintenance with native plants and wood chips replacing the grass. What a transformation.
Massive Renovation - Incredible Transformation!
Architecturally designed and excellent execution. We expanded the floor space by tearing off the roof and adding a sleek extension supported by Helical piles and welded beams. The exterior boasts Custom Hardie Board siding from @jameshardie, featuring a mix of board and batten with horizontal siding that beautifully complements the existing brick. The black windows, doors, soffits, fascia, and eavestroughs provide a sharp contrast, giving this project a stunning finish.
Driftwood On The Bay
This reno was one of our favourite projects. A detached 2.5 car garage and a massive front porch boasting a 24′ span. We used steel roofing and created a fluid flow from the front porch, side entrance, breezeway, studio and four season room. The steel introduces a striking industrial contrast juxtaposed to the green surrounding. A collaboration with Driftwood Design.
A Room With A View
Understated and simple. Grand and elegant. We completed this primary bedroom as a second storey addition. Featuring 12’ vaulted ceiling with a massive dormer and peaceful ravine view. An architectural design from Solve Architects who we love to collaborate with. Don’t forget about the huge walk-in closet and radiant in-floor heating throughout. And of course, a stunning ensuite.
Manitoulin Sea-Can Cottage
This sea-can inspired cottage was built as four separate containers. Delivered to Manitoulin Island, the modular cottage keeps an open concept with breezeways and decks connecting the bedrooms, living space and kitchen. Although left empty for transport, the cottage is well equipped for off grid living with solar panels, rain water catch systems and wood burning for heat. We were given concepts, no drawings and a three week timeline. An interesting, challenging project we loved!
