Here's a sampler of some of our more colourful renovation work where we provided the creative design for the project... and we did the construction and finishing too!

Bold paint and solid, contrasting trim combine to make a dramatic room.

 Kitchens can be lively and colourful too!


countertop

Re-surfaced counter top, hand-made ceramic tile and wood accents brighten this kitchen.
Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) mouldings are inexpensive, very easy to work with and look great, but sometimes only real wood will do.

These are some examples of finishing work done by us in solid wood

Water is probably the biggest enemy of houses.  It is logical that the wettest room in the house is probably the one most needing  maintenance and repair.  


Here are some bathroom renovations we designed and built.

Changing paint is one of the the easiest and least expensive ways to change the appearance of the room.  
    
This might be a fresh coat of classic white, or maybe a colourful accent wall or trim.  We can get creative with paint too.  Textured paint techniques add interest to a room.

cave painting
Personalize your space with a bit of wall art.  Maybe a cave painting or a lurking tropical fish.

Sometimes the project requires a bit more brute force, but design and attention to detail is still important.

excavator
There was a problem with an improperly graded sewer line at this house. 

We dug up 50 feet of sanitary drain and re-laid it with a proper slope.  




damp proofing


While the foundation was exposed, we re-did the damp proofing, installed foundation insulation and added perimeter drains.  Once the excavation was back-filled, compacted and graded we re-planted the lawn.
 
When we are designing, drawings are an essential part of the communication with our clients.  

Drawings are also critical when we are building.
