Winter persists here in the Shuswap, but our staff and trades are working in the warmth, bring one of our jobs to a conclusion on the North Shore.
The project is a major retrofit and update of a waterfront home. The owners wanted to retain the charm of the original structure, and we think we’ve all accomplished that. Tongue and groove panelling on the ceilings, including in the new upper floor loft, definitely helps to achieve this, as does the beautiful rustic natural stone fireplace in the great room.
Some of the other features of this home include a custom staircase to the new loft, which we’re currently starting to build offsite, and stained wood trims and beams throughout. Hunter Douglas window coverings have been measured and are on order, lighting choices have been finalized, and new appliances will soon be delivered, as the kitchen is largely complete (see photos below).
This week, we’ll begin all flooring including tile work in the bathrooms, templating for the granite countertops, and interior door installation.
We couldn’t be happier with our progress on this thoroughly enjoyable project, and are looking forward to posting photos when completed in March.
