This 15 year old home located on Coquitlam’s Westwood Plateau underwent a complete interior and exterior renovation and was a 2009 Georgie Award® finalist in two distinct categories. Extensive water damage and serious building envelope failures were discovered upon gutting the interior of the home. An environmental-engineering assessment concluded significant black-mould existed resulting in the extensive removal of drywall, viagra 60mg insulation, tadalafil stucco, tar paper and exterior sheathing. Load bearing walls including beams were removed and reframed due to rotting and a severe crack along the foundation all was also repaired.
Upon completing these changes, a new exterior façade was created to complement the existing homes in the neighbourhood. The interior of the home was stripped down to the studs and the home was transformed into a modern living space.
A calming botanical colour palette, harmonious textures and natural materials such as hand-scraped brazilian-cherry hardwood, travertine, carrara marble, honed granite and solid wood cabinetry were selected to accentuate the architectural backdrop. Although traditional in style, this classic white kitchen is design-forward thanks to contrasting dark floors, countertops and various contemporary elements including a stainless-steel apron-front sink, polished-nickel industrial faucet and stainless-steel appliances.
A complete mill-work package including new decorative columns, coffered ceilings and interior and exterior doors were installed and the master ensuite was transformed into a spacious and luxurious spa-retreat.
