This 1920's worker's bungalow was suffering from vinyl siding, ill-placed windows and an overall lack of charm. The addition of a portico, new windows and re-cladding the house in cedar shingles greatly improved the street-appeal of this little house.
Another complete kitchen overhaul. Windows and doors were moved to re-organize the space. The new kitchen incorporated a peninsula, rich colours, cork flooring and plenty of storage in this older house.
With the addition of a new cork tile floor and backsplash, custom tiled mosaic countertop, sink, appliances and door handles this 1980's kitchen was so convincingly renewed that visitors thought the entire kitchen had been redone.
A neglected house with over 100 years of history held within its creaking timbers, most people would have demolished this building with much of a second thought. I saw potential and embarked on a long and complicated restoration so that this building could once again take a proud position in the 300-year old village of Pointe-Claire, Québec. Renovations were very extensive and included new foundations, new wood cladding, new metal roofing, new windows, full insulation, re-wiring, re-plumbing, structural modifications and more.
The commercial space on the ground floor is now home to Avocado Sushi. I managed the renovations to establish this wonderful little sushi bar in the Village of Pointe-Claire.
The loft apartment on the second floor is for rent and its current availability and other details can be viewed here.
The sinuous curve of this custom-built vanity adds a dynamic element to a long, narrow bathroom. The bathroom features a restored claw-foot tub, custom shower rod, a heated granite floor, a skylight and wall-to-wall tile.
