Transformation of a bungalow
Add a floor to a bungalow whose ground floor had been completely renovated by the clients
Due to equipment availability, we started by assembling the new roof on the ground in two sections. Also, we proceeded to demolish the existing roof while preserving the finish of the wood ceiling on the first floor. Then, we started the construction of the floor and wall structure of the second floor, installed the two roof sections, finished the roof and then waterproofed the building envelope.
The exterior finishing, as well as the interior finishing, was done by the clients themselves.
Add a basement to a cottage built on piles and redo the septic system
We had the cottage raised by experts, shuttered and erected a new poured concrete foundation and floor slab. Exceptionally, and to meet the clients' future needs, we introduced the house to insert a new floor in between. We performed structural work, installed doors and windows and redid the septic system. The clients did the interior and exterior finishing.
Still today, clients give us various contracts to finalize their renovation projects.

We touched almost everything on this beautiful ancestral house.

Also, we completely remodelled the bathroom and kitchen, recovered and modified some of the windows with cremone bolts, enhanced the existing brick chimney, allowed new access to the poured concrete basement, straightened and refinished the ground floor and re-roofed the house with a non exposed screwed sheet.
The clients did all painting work, both interior and exterior.
