Our Westboro whole-home renovation & addition is award-winning!
One of our favourite projects, this renovation began as a two-storey addition to create more room for the kitchen and master bedroom. But it grew to become a whole-house remodel that resolved past fire damage and transformed what had been a cramped, inefficient floor plan into a spacious entertainer’s dream.
Finishes are luxurious, with an incredible attention to detail in workmanship and functionality for a cohesive design throughout, and the home is filled with natural light thanks to northern walls that are full of glazing.
The project won its renovation category at the November 2021 Housing Design Awards hosted by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association.
About this project
The addition on the back created room for an expanded gourmet kitchen with a generous pantry tucked in behind to maximize storage. The kitchen opens to the backyard though a large sliding door and high-end appliances are complemented by the eye-catching quartz on the island. There is also a coffee bar with bar fridge outside the kitchen for entertaining.
Along with the now-spacious and inviting kitchen, the open-concept main floor includes an expansive living room and dining room, perfect for entertaining. We were also able to add a powder room to the main floor so that guests would not have to trudge upstairs to the main bathroom, and the laundry room has been conveniently moved from the basement to the main floor.
Upstairs, the addition allowed for an oh-so-pampering spa-like master suite retreat where before there had been only three small bedrooms. Now, the master includes a private entry and oversized walk-in closet (taking over one of the old secondary bedrooms), a roomy sleeping area with double-sided fireplace connecting to the ensuite, and a luxurious five-piece ensuite with double vanity and separate tub and shower. This is an example of a hyperlink and this is the hover state. And there are still two secondary bedrooms.
This home is a great example of the type of work we love to deliver to our clients, with high-level finishes that are a true reflection of the skill set of our on-site staff.
The project started at the beginning of 2020. The biggest challenge was COVID-19 and the impacts it had across the industry. From limiting the number of workers on site to supply delays and the unknown of what the next days or weeks would bring, this project is a testament to teamwork and planning in an ever-changing time.
