Historical Guelph residence major renovations complete
In the summer of 2010, Slotegraaf was awarded the contract for a major renovation and addition in a historical section of Guelph. The original designs were completed by Architect Kevin Crozier, and the homeowner hired Finishing Touches Designers to coordinate selections and finishes, both inside and out.
This project began at the beginning of September with a tear out which included the entire main floor of the home. The homeowner was given a construction schedule, which not only allowed them to track construction progress, but also gave them a timeframe to complete all their finishing product selections like flooring, cabinets, and plumbing fixtures on time, helping to maintain the construction schedule and working together with us as a team.
Now this bungalow includes a beautiful large modern kitchen, new master suite including ensuite and walk-in closet, mudroom and laundry area, and a vestibule and conservatory.
The re-design of the exterior of this home has made an incredible before-and-after comparison. Many finishes were used in stunning proportion: the existing stone remained and was salvaged where openings where changed. The addition walls and gable ends are custom painted paneling. The overhang on the roof was cut back and a painted crown added. The roof is cedar shakes; and the troughs and facia were all completed in copper.
