DESIGNBUILDLIVEAWARDS

Seeking to increase the living space of their home, the clients tasked Best Builders with the bold task of adding a completely new storey to an existing house.

Mechanical & Electrical

  • High efficiency furnace
  • Recessed & feature LED lighting throughout
  • High efficiency boiler for domestic hot water

Exterior

  • Cedar side wall shingles
  • Slop dash stucco
  • Low ‘e’ vinyl windows

Interior Finishes

  • Engineered stone counter tops
  • Black slate, slab travertine fireplace surround, engineered stone countertops
  • High gloss laminate millwork

Best Builders removed the roof, added another storey, and created a fifth unit that encompassed the entire top floor to make a 4800 square foot house.  The exterior was completely re-done, keeping the design within the heritage of the area.  Seismic and structural upgrades were done throughout to bring up to new engineering standards.
