Private Residence Interior Renovations

 

1950's ranch style home completely redesigned with interior alterations to provide a contemporary open plan with updates to all materials and fixtures including rift cut walnut floors, porcelain tiles from Spain, Scavolini kitchen and extensive lighting and controls.

 

This early 50's ranch home had an addition in the 80’s - and required not only updating but relocating walls and room sizes to open up the floor plan, provide proportion to the room sizes and better circulation throughout. In doing so all new mechanical and electrical systems were updated as were the exterior windows and doors - adding 2 new fireplaces in the process. The result is a clean yet warm contemporary interior ideally suited to the owners.

Mill District - Commercial Development  - “Best Flour by a Damn Site”

 

In the small hamlet of Arva, Ontario stands one of the oldest water powered operating flour mills in Canada - producing small quantities of flour for over 190 years. Founded in 1819, the mill continues providing quality all natural and organic products to both the public and commercial kitchens. As a small facility with aging yet impressive equipment it takes capital to maintain the mill in working order.

The addition will contain a restaurant and bakery that will use products from the mill, as well as a ‘farm to table’ butcher and cheese shop, an organic foods retail store and upper floor office space.
