Approaching the home before the renovation it felt dated, and almost stale. The colour and style of the exterior didn’t quite suit the owner or the neighborhood.
Inside the home the hardwood floor had been painted black, the kitchen was the dated 1980’s cupboards, and each space was walled off as was typical of a home of this age. The front of the home also had two bay windows which needed to be removed.
The back of the house would also need a lot of love. The power lines coming into the house were hanging low and through the trees. The back deck was an eyesore to say the least, but yet the backyard landscaping was beautifully maintained. You could immediately tell that the new deck would serve the purpose of creating an inviting space for social gatherings.
The house had one major advantage which was that in the 80’s they added the second floor which had previously been renovated. When they added the second floor they built the floor such that we could remove all of the interior walls! A huge change was about to begin.
