This tired, forgotten bungalow was in need of a little attention. With a mix of creativity, passion and professional skills, this project proves that any home can get a new lease (or mortgage) on life. In addition to numerous interior upgrades, obvious exterior changes include a new roof, siding, windows, soffi ts and gutters, along with a welcoming craftsman-style covered front porch with stone-accented pillars and metal railing. The stained deck and entry are complimented by an aggregate concrete path and steps to the driveway.
The deteriorating dock on this waterfront property in St. Margarets Bay area was in desperate need of an update. After removing all decking and surface materials, the existing piers were still in great shape and could be reused to help the client save on their investment. A new structure was sistered to existing framing, supporting the new treated wooden deck and posts. For safety, new rope rails were attached, suitable for the nautical setting. Solar lights adorn each post for evening use. A safe and attractive update to this essential.
This older Halifax home located of Robie Street has charming appeal, familiar with others like it in the area. However the front porch was in desperate need of an update. The existing wood siding, decking and rails were in various stages of decay, so all were removed. With the structure secured and prepared, composite materials were used to replace the floor, stairs and rails – providing a long life and low maintenance solution. The result is a much more welcoming fist sight for guests of this charming city home.
