Here I share the projects that I am currently working on, or that have been newly released to the wild...or for permit, but saying I released them to the wild is much more fun.

Tandem Garage

A tandem garage is a type of garage where two or more cars can be parked in a single, long space, one behind the other. There are several benefits to having a tandem garage:

  1. Space-saving: Tandem garages are ideal for properties where space is limited. If your lot width doesn’t allow for a three-car wide garage, a tandem garage would be a good fit.
  2. Security: Having all your cars parked in one place can also enhance security. Being able to park all of your cars in an enclosed, lockable space, makes it easier to reduce theft.
  3. Flexibility: Tandem garages are also versatile. If you don’t need to park multiple cars, you can use the extra space for storage, a workshop, or any other purpose you need.

A Stone and Stucco Combination Facade

Combining stone and stucco in a home facade can create a beautiful and visually appealing exterior. Stone and stucco are both versatile materials that can be used to achieve a range of architectural styles, from traditional to modern.

Stone is a durable and natural material that can add texture and depth to a home’s exterior. It can be used to create a feature wall or to accent certain parts of the facade. Stone is available in a range of colors and styles, allowing homeowners to choose a look that fits their personal style.

Stucco, on the other hand, is a versatile material that can be used to create a smooth and uniform look. It is a low-maintenance option that can be tinted to match the color of the stone or other design elements.

When combined, stone and stucco can create a balanced and cohesive facade. The use of stone adds texture and visual interest, while stucco provides a clean and modern look. Homeowners can also experiment with different combinations of stone and stucco to create a unique and customized look that fits their personal style.

Overall, the combination of stone and stucco in a home facade can create a timeless and elegant look that enhances the curb appeal and value of the home.

Repetitive Window Walls

Repetitive windows can be seen in a variety of architectural styles, from traditional to modern. In some cases, the repetition of windows may be used to create a sense of symmetry and balance in a building’s facade, while in other cases it may be used to create a more dynamic, patterned effect. They can also help to create a more comfortable and inviting interior environment by providing views of the surrounding landscape or cityscape.

Repetitive windows can create a sense of rhythm and continuity in a space, and can also allow for natural light to enter and illuminate the area.

Shared Bathroom

If you have kids that can stop fighting long enough to share a bathroom, here’s a layout option to consider:

Each child gets their own sink, and the bathing area is private so one could be brushing their teeth while the other has their morning shower.

The bathing area also has a space for some extra towels and toilet paper so they never get stuck without it!

Thick Trim

A thick trim adds extra oomph to your curb appeal. Think back to how craftsman houses were with multiple trim pieces stacked on each other to create a wide frame around windows and doors.

This home uses a thick fascia combined with a doubled up trim under the roof line to give the same feelings of solidity and presence.

Symmetrical or Balanced Facade

Do you prefer a symmetrical-looking home? Or do you not want symmetry, but you want it to look balanced?

This homeowner liked symmetry, so we created a facade that reflected that. Either side of the entry is an exact replica of each other. If only the property was big enough to add another garage on the left side to really drive it home!

Office Overlooking Great Room

Simply by adding a window in the interior wall, this home office makes use of the two-storey great room and all the light that would come streaming in from the abundance of windows that would be in the rear of the home. How cool is that?

Traditional Facade

If you’re looking to make your home have a classic feel, try bringing stone into the mix, and instead of making a stone skirt or stopping the stone at the second floor joists, bring that stone all the way up to the base of your second floor windows. It anchors the main floor and looks like a home that has been around for many years.

Light or Dark Wood Beams

The simple difference of dark wood or light wood can completely transform the look of your home.

Which of these timber colours would you choose?

Dining Room Wine Nook

Looking to take your dining room up a notch?

Add a wine display!

The glass walls, the lighting, and the bottles on display all add a classy ambiance to your dining room.

We created this intimate nook for the wine area that made it a mysterious tucked-away area that beckons your guests to explore further. Add some faux stone on the entire area to imitate a cave!
