This was a major renovation we did for some investors. The upstairs of the home was sealed off from the downstairs and had a laundry installed over the old stairwell. We replaced all the trim, doors, baseboard, and door hardware. New counter tops, cabinet hardware, sinks, faucets and backsplash. Paint and new electrical switches, plugs and lights. To top it off, we refaced the fireplace, which gave it a more modern look.

The basement was a major gut. Originally one bedroom, living room and a bathroom. We took it down to the studs, reinsulating, soundproofing, added a second furnace. Framed in a two bedroom self-contained suite, with full kitchen and laundry. We also had to add and widen the basement windows by cutting concrete.

Once completed, the owners of the property were able to rent out the both the upstairs and downstairs units for a combined amount of over $3000 per month
