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, you can already see the difference the new retaining walls and gardens make.
Driftwood On The Bay
Freeman Home Renovation
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!
Custom Farmhouse Construction
A complete gut from roof down to foundation, we then created an entirely new home from foundation to roof.
Some of the best interior finishes were the open concept main level with a 6″ heated concrete slab floor and the massive master bedroom with third floor ensuite. The ensuite included a two person steam shower with a view of green space through the newly built dormer. The exterior gives this house a larger presence with the grand wrap around porch, sleet steel roof and dark wood siding.
