Stripped to the Bones
We stripped this house down to the bones and changed the entire floor plan to a modern open concept layout. The renovation included relocating windows and doors and adding an egress window to allow for a bedroom in the basement. The staircase had to be relocated in order make the new layout possible. Two bedrooms were relocated to the front of the house and the kitchen and family room to the back. We replaced the entire electrical system, and all the above and below ground plumbing. We added a new AC unit, air exchanger and all new ducting to comply with the new configuration. The houses insulation was replaced and upgraded, to meet current day building code, using a combination of blown insulation in the attic, batt insulation in the walls, and a combination of 2-inch Styrofoam and batt insulation in the basement walls.
More functionality, more space, more visually pleasing. We removed two of this kitchens walls which allowed abundance of natural light to flow in as well as opening up the view of the beautiful Rideau river. The London Grey quartz counter tops complement the Westport White Deslaurier cabinets and the marble floors and the marble lantern back-splash all tie together to complete the look. Dimmable under-cabinet lighting, ten LED pot lights and four LED glass pendant lights give the versatility to set the mood or offer ample light when needed.
We transformed this basement into a games room and home bar. A total gut and rebuild made this space a place that the whole family now enjoys spending time in. The games room was finished with gypsum panel ceiling and walls and high quality, durable laminate was laid on the floors. The home owner has begun installing home theater and purchasing arcade games, pinball machines and bubble top hockey for furnishings. The wet bar features custom poured concrete counter tops, polished to a glossy finish, complementing the porcelain tile and rustic ledgestone walls.

A solution was needed for the aging residents of this home. The realities of aging set in and the need of an assisted mobility walker made the existing bathroom a difficult to navigate. Doing laundry in the basement became mission impossible. ARC360 came up with a plan to relocate the laundry room, from the basement, to the second floor and create a large navigable bathroom in an unused bedroom. The toilet was sectioned off into its own room to allow use, of the laundry room and the rest of the bathroom, when occupied.
A total redo of this, elegant homes, front foyer creates a bold statement of class and wealth when visitors enter the home. The floors have been tiled with 24" x 24" porcelain tile, bordered with hexagonal marble tile. The upgraded to a Swarovski crystal chandelier enhances the lighting and the elegance of the foyer. The closet was reworked to add functionality and finished off with a waterfall glass door.
