Heritage in the Woods
We were honoured to be involved in this exciting project at Heritage in the Woods in North Vancouver, working with another great homeowner who had just recently purchased the 3,000 square foot, 5 bedroom, 3 storey home near Mt Seymour River. The focus of this project was a full gut down to the studs renovation/remodel for the entire main floor along with a newly adjusted floor plan to create an open floor concept in the kitchen, dining and living room area and expanding the master bedroom – ensuite and master bedroom walk in closet. With some trick engineering we were able to install a drop steel beam in place of a load bearing wall as seen cladded in trim over the kitchen island. For the finishes we created a nice balance between classic and modern, by installing wainscoting trim for the main floor hallway tying in this detail with the stairwell adding a classic charm to an otherwise modern renovation. The cabinetry and millwork provided by Reynolds Cabinet Shop is the main feature of the renovation along with a newly expanded fireplace/entertainment wall, new gas insert fireplace and floating live edge mantel milled and stained by Maderna Fina Furniture. All new plumbing and the majority of the electrical upgraded throughout. New wide plank oak flooring for the entire main floor and stairwell and into the basement. The existing stairwell – open glulam stringers, D. Fir treads and railings were left as is structurally due to building code complications but refinished with great results. Downstairs we renovated the laundry room, powder room and turned the lone basement bedroom into a new gym room. A wonderful project with great results!
