An Oldie But A Goodie

A substantial renovation was undertaken to modernize this heritage home, not only in style but also in its functionality, for life today is lived differently than when the house was originally constructed. A complete re-design of the main floor removed its ‘small rooms layout’ and completely relocated the kitchen/dining area for improved workflow and more comfortable entertaining. A much larger feeling and more comfortable home was created inside the existing footprint – no addition necessary. The kitchen relocation also allows the expanded sundecks to be accessed and enjoyed from multiple rooms, and the new arrangement provides much more natural light throughout. The exterior retains its heritage required façade, while the neutral interior is tastefully modern yet respectful to the historical home. There was much technical upgrading achieved in this renovation while the house was taken back to foundation and studs in order to achieve its upgrade while retaining heritage integrity. The home that it is today is a beautiful new version of the original charming house... and its merits include HAVAN Awards 2021 Best Character Home Renovation!






What People Are Saying

Lawrence Green

"I was impressed not only by Sarah's design ability, but also with her level of construction knowledge. I have heard that a lot of designers are good at making things pretty, but are not that great at understanding how things are actually built- Sarah is fantastic at both. I recommend them to anyone and everyone I know without hesitation."

Diane and Vince Grdina

"We had the pleasure of working with Sarah on the construction of our new home. We had a lot of fun working with them and found them always thoughtful, mindful, and professional. We would highly recommend their firm and would use them again without hesitation."

Pete Rackow

"We were immediately impressed with Sarah's ability to assess our needs and understand the type of home my wife and I wanted for us and our 3 boys. Her attention to detail is flawless and every inch of our fully renovated home is thoroughly thought through. I felt like they cared about our home as much as we the homeowners did."
