The Plan

Making the most of a bad situation, our task was to re-imagine a fire damaged bungalow into a two storey family oasis. 

The wish list included changing the style from traditional to contemporary, adding a second storey with a roof deck, increasing main floor height for larger windows, moving basement stairs and adding new stairs leading to the second floor.

All requiring creative design, engineering and problem solving skills. 

The Build

The redesigned main floor is the central hub of the home and is divided into two main areas.

The serene kitchen and living room are separated from the spacious mudroom and sports equipment room. This separation keeps busy lives organized.

An office, guest suite and full bathroom are also located on this level.

Parent Oasis

The second floor is a parent oasis housing the owner’s suite, complete with a private sitting room with large south and west facing windows to maximize daylight. 

Outdoor Living

A generous rooftop patio can be accessed from the second level, the patio functions as the family’s outdoor living room where they enjoy time together playing ping pong and soaking up the sun. 

The backyard is also set up for outdoor activity. It features an eating space and large play area finished with grass and stamped concrete.


Kids’s Dream

The basement level is a kid’s dream, complete with a large recreation room, gym and two custom bedrooms suited for two active, young children.

We are absolutely thrilled with the transformation of our home. It turned a bad situation into the home of our dreams.
