The house was over 100 years old in beat up condition and still in its original builder layout, which was unsuitable for the new owner family’s needs and life style. They were quite concerned if we were able to find a way to turn this house into their dream home. In fact, they doubted if they did the right thing buying this house.
We provided our client with couple of alternatives and based on the budget required and their taste, our client decided to go with the plan shown on the pictures and described below.
The permit acquisition process was done by Emian. We decided to remove the wall between kitchen and former dining room, creating a large kitchen and family room for the large family gathering and celebration.
The underpinning was also done in basement, adding several feet to the height of the basement to ensure that it can be easily accessed and used as a separate registered legal unit by the city. The basement lowering added value to the house and enhanced the integrity of the existing structure.The new layout includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two kitchens in total. The master ensuite was finished with free standing bathtub, glass barrier free shower and large double sink vanity. The master bedroom has a full-blown walk-in-closet with built in closets, drawers, and make-up table. The final result was truly a dream come true for our client!
