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.

Horizontal Lines

Horizontal lines help elongate the look of your home.

This elevation takes advantage of that trick with the window frames and the long horizontal strips of materials.

Wood Accents

Wood brings an earthy quality to a home’s facade. Something as simple as a few accents in the gables, can change the whole feel of your home.

Open Pantry Idea

Pantries are an extension of the kitchen. If you’re someone who loves to have labelled containers displaying your food items, or just want to keep your toaster or blender off the counter in your main kitchen, consider having your pantry without a door for easy access!

Transitional Modern Facade

This home showcases how sleek lines, repetitive windows, and slight symmetry can come together to form a home that I describe as ‘transitional modern’.

Double Access Mudroom

The most convenient rooms are ones that serve more than one function. The second most convenient rooms are ones that can serve the same function, twice.

Like this mudroom:

It serves the garage for your everyday arrival, but also serves the backyard. This way, any time you’re coming in from the outside all shoes get removed in the room that can handle a little extra dirt/water. No more wet shoes coming into your hardwood floors in the great room (or -gasp- carpet!).

Let The Light In

Nothing is better than a house full of natural light. This house has a window that spans both storeys at the stairwell, bringing in the light to every level all at once.

Contemporary Elevation

There is a shift lately toward contemporary homes. The sleek lines, large windows, and modern finishes give a refreshing take on a new home’s exterior.

Jack and Jill Bathroom

Jack and Jill bathrooms are a popular way to allow each child direct access to a bathroom, while reducing the number of toilets you need to clean.

This is one where the children share a toilet and bathing area, while still giving each a private vanity area to brush their teeth, pop pimples, or learn to do their make-up.

Transitional Two-Storey

When creating a look to a home, I always like to tow the line between something that looks like it’s always been there and up-to-date trends.

‘Transitional’ is the epitome of that effort; like this home that blends a new-trend window style within a more traditional home:

Sunken Mudroom

How can you minimize the amount of stairs coming into your house from the garage, while simultaneously keeping dirt contained?

A sunken mudroom!

Having a lower floor level in your mudroom allows you to completely load up your arms with grocery bags without having to ping pong your way up the stairs to get into your home. Once inside, keep the dirt on it’s own level. You won’t be accidentally kicking dirt into the main level of your house since dirt can’t defy gravity or jump.

It’s a win-win!
