Dovercourt has been one of our most exciting and transformational
renovations yet. From start to finish, we successfully completed our
total renovation in 31 days. Long days, a busy work site and burning
through the midnight oil, our team pulled together to deliver an
incredible product to hit the YEG real estate market.
The Home Renovation Process
This project was jam packed with activity the minute keys were
released to us. With the on site bin delivered, our demo crew got
right to work gutting the interior completely. We demo’d the old
kitchen, bathroom, basement paneling, old carpets, casings and
everything else to prep our property for the upcoming rehab this
home so badly needed. With pry bars in hand and dusk masks
strapped tight, we had our bin 80% full 8 hours into the project.
With the floor plan now clear and open, our electricians, plumbers
and exterior painters got right to work. We gave the original stucco
exterior a clean face lift painting the house and detached garage
with a stunning charcoal grey color. The results were incredible.
What a difference paint makes!
Up on the roof, the shingles were stripped, ice shield, and tar paper
installed followed by our high end shingles to tie in the new look of
the exterior. This amazing home was starting to great just 24 hours
into the process.
Down in the basement, we broke ground through the concrete to
rough in the new bathroom. Additionally, stud walls were framed and
electrical rough ins progressed in tandem to get our basement
development ready for our local inspections.With those sweet green stickers granted, it was time to close up the basement and start finishing! Once drywall is up the renovations and completion really start to take flight.
On the main floor, cabinets were installed, bathtubs updated, doors
hung and out original hardwood floors refinished. Day by day this
project was starting to look like a home. Tiles were then set. We used a sharp, yet contemporary 12 x 24 “ Carrara floor tile throughout the kitchen, fireplace mantle and upstairs bathroom.
Painters were hard at work and had moldings and ceilings sprayed to
give a seamless finish. We painted our doors a charcoal grey and
complimented our finishings with gold accents to tie in the look. Gold
hardware on the kitchen handles with gold light fixtures gave this
home a subtle sense of class with hints of contemporary styles. We
were incredibly pleased with our designers finishings.
Out front, we installed some natural accents to the exterior using
cladding and paneling to give this slick new bungalow a high end
impression from the front. We installed a modern address sign, new
exterior lighting, hardware and doorbell and this house was starting
to be quite the hit in the neighborhood.
It’s always humbling meeting the neighbors and hearing their
positive feedback and appreciation for the work we do. Seeing their
community being looked after, and adding value to the property
gives us a true sense of satisfaction and it’s amazing how supportive
and inviting the neighbors in Dovercourt have been. A huge thank
you to the amazing people in the Dovercourt community. We are so
thankful for how amazing, friendly and caring everyone has been
throughout our project. (A huge thank you to our surrounding
neighbors for putting up with our construction noise and chaos at
times. Your accommodation has been amazing!).
Back inside, countertops were installed, appliances delivered,
Electical fixtures updated and remaining finishings finalized.
The last few days were crazy and chaotic. Running on caffeine and
fast food becomes a common evil during the final push to
completion. Our team came together seamlessly to hit our deadline
just in time. Renovations are a group effort and we are so fortunate
for the amazing trades people that see every detail and produce ya
with such fantastic quality and work. Thank you!
With our open house scheduled, the final day of our project was
buzzing with activity. Cleaners arrived early to shine every inch of
our home before furniture was delivered. Carolyn and her team at
Interior Illusions did a remarkable job staging and finalizing this
stunning home. Huge thank you and appreciation for everything you
do. You are amazing!
With our open house weekend ahead, it was time to showcase our
work to the market and provide our upcoming buyers with the home
of their dreams! Another stunning, transformational and exciting
project complete. Time for planning the design for our upcoming
