Residential - Analysis and recommendations for ageing in comfort at home.
On site project supervision and scheduling of the trades.
My clients loved their house and the neighbourhood, but with a growing family, a compact floor plan and a small lot that would not allow for an addition, they needed to find space to improve their quality of life.
After assessing my clients needs, surveying the house and a quick call to the local Zoning Department, the only option was to go up. The design proposed converting the attic into a master bedroom with a luxury ensuite, lots of storage and a work space/home office. Most of the roof was removed and back to back shed dormers were built. Budget was less than $75,000 (2013).

The design proposed converting the attic into a master bedroom with a simple ensuite, lots of storage with a walk-in closet. Most of the roof was removed and a shed dormer was built. Budget was less than $60,000 (2013).
My client bought a rental investment property that violated the local City's by-law requirements for a legal accessory apartment. Unable to rent the 2 bedroom basement apartment until a certificate was issued, the design had to be cost effective within a limited budget. A number of O.B.C. Building Code violations were uncovered that had to be resolved quickly.
After assessing my clients needs and surveying the property, I worked with the clients' contractor to expedite the design and specifications. The basement is bright, modern and appealing to the target renter. The project came on budget at $15,000 (2015) and on time. The unit rented within 1 week of completion.
