Award-Winning Transformation on CTV News at Noon

June 13, 2016

Steve Barkhouse joins Leanne Cusack on CTV News at Noon, sharing the beautiful main floor renovation of a home in the Glebe. This video highlights the impact paint choices and colour schemes can have on a space.

This Victorian inspired home included beautiful characteristic features from this era, and combined with a late 1970’s addition, it had an excellent ground floor footprint. But with structural problems in the addition and updated living styles since its build, our homeowners recognized the need to improve the functionality of their space and increase the home’s efficiency.

The existing addition was nearly entirely deconstructed and rebuilt from the foundation up, increasing the energy efficiency and opening it up for a new floorplan. The previous addition became a warm and bright family room, with beautiful adjacent two-tone kitchen. The original home also now features refinished hardwood floors throughout and custom designed crown moulding and trim details, maintaining the vintage feel of the home and tying the entire renovation together.
