Bloor West – First Floor

Veronique and her husband Guillaume live with their two kids in Bloor West Village in a three-bedroom semi-detached home. When they moved into the house, the main floor’s kitchen, dining and living room were divided and cramped. The floors and the stairs were worn down from over a hundred years of use. The stairs were definitely not to code and did not feel safe for their kids.

Silverthorne – Basement

Margot and Manuel were looking to finish their basement to make a playroom for their child and have a place to relax. When we opened up the walls, we found water damage along the front wall. After an assessment, we helped them redirect the outside water flow, repair the affected interior foundation wall, and finish the basement.

West Bend – Basement

Minora and Christoph had a small basement in their semi-detached house. They wanted to turn the basement into a suite to provide a living space for a live-in nanny. We worked with them closely to understand different options and weigh the pros and cons of different approaches.
