Project Description

A comfortably sized home in central Chilliwack on a valuable corner lot was too good to pass up! Our vision for this house was extensive, it would require a complete overhaul from the foundation to the roof and everything in between. We set to work the day after the sale closed starting with a brand new roof. We called in an arborist to tidy up the massive trees that were hanging over the house so that the new roof would keep clean from tree debris. Next we had a crew rip down all of the existing drywall so that we had bare bones exposed. A lot of the framing of the house needed work to meet our standards and so we set our carpenter and his crew on repairing every inch of it. We removed some walls and redesigned the main floor layout to have a large master bedroom with it’s own bathroom attached. The original front porch was demolished in favor of a wrap-around deck that spans from the front door, around the side of the house and all the way to the rear of the house. The master bedroom opens directly onto the new wrap-around deck through two beautiful, large French doors. After days of ripping stucco from the sides of the house we were finally ready to install brand new Hardy board siding around the entire house with complementing shakes in the gables. The staircase leading to the second floor was poorly designed to be very steep and none of the steps were level, so we ripped the whole thing out and designed a custom staircase from scratch. Since our vision for the home had a child-friendly bedroom on the upper level we took extra time designing the staircase to ensure that it was accommodating. Everything electrical in the house was removed including the sockets, wiring, and panel and replaced with an entirely new system. The furnace was at the end of it’s lifespan and replaced with a brand new one as well. Once the plumbing additions for the master suite bathroom were complete we brought in a truckload of insulation, installed it, and put up the drywall. Finally, we had a custom kitchen designed, built, and installed.

The rest of the finishing is still in progress and so if you are interested in purchasing this property, we are willing to work with you to customize colors and materials so that you move into the exact home you are looking for.
