The client wanted their small yet charming North Shore home to have more organized, intelligently planned space, so we flipped the floorplan in this whole home renovation.


  • Remember the prank where you send your crew’s greenhorn to find a ‘wall expander’? Ah, good times. Except we wished such a thing really existed, because adding space within the existing floor area was a major challenge with this home renovation!


  • Upstairs, they didn’t have a full bathroom. And they needed one. No one should have to go on a trek just to have their morning shower.


  • Vaulted ceilings imposed serious space limitations for non-leprechauns.


  • Clients wanted office space that could double as a sewing area. Work hard, sew hard.


  • We removed many walls — plus a chimney — to open the main floor.


  • Added a master suite and two kids’ bedrooms upstairs to this renovated home.


  • A second sliding-door increased the home’s useable area, improving indoor/outdoor flow.


  • When we moved the master bedroom, we used the bump-out on the main floor to help create an ensuite.


  • We created a kitchen island seating six.


  • The original stairs were impossibly steep, unless you’re an ibex. In this renovation, we extended them, reducing the grade to make them more gradual, and added a glass rail to keep the open flow
