1930s Gambrel Roof 2 Storey

The owners of this home loved their neighbourhood but needed more space to meet family needs. Sakiyama Construction worked with designer Greg Palmer (Palmer Interior Design) to create a 2 storey rear addition that mimicked the existing Gambrel style roof (above right). Original rear garage and roof deck were removed (above left) and new piled foundation installed.

The original kitchen was cramped and inefficient (above left). The removal of the rear kitchen wall allowed expansion into the addition. New box windows and Shaker cabinets maintained the style of the home. Ceiling cove moldings and custom bulkhead accentuated the central island which provides extra work and cabinet space.

All new appliances, plumbing fixtures and lighting provided modern convenience, as did a new message centre (above). The floor plan provided expanded family space such as the banquette seating area (right). Adjacent double garden doors opened onto a deck leading to the rear yard.

The addition also provided space for a convenient main floor laundry room, relocated from the basement (above), and a much needed extra powder room (right). Upper level of the addition featured a home office/den with a small balcony overlooking the rear yard (not pictured).

1920s Georgian Remodel

This elegant River Heights-type 2 storey home had not been remodeled except for the kitchen in the 1950s (above upper right). Needless to say, the entire home required extensive work. Sakiyama Construction worked with the homeowner and Michelle Weibe (W Design Group) to plan the design changes. The kitchen was gutted and completely rebuilt (above lower right). Features included custom shaker-style cabinets, butcher block countertops and state of the art appliances. All plumbing and electrical were updated. Layers of vinyl and underlay were stripped out to reveal the original hardwood floors which were refinished.

All living spaces were restored with repairs and refinishing of ceilings, walls and floors as needed. The result was a 1920s home modernized to the 2000s, yet retaining the authenticity of style as fits the era of this house.

Foundation repairs were a major focus of the renovation. These included stabilizing walls, complete water-proofing, sewer and weeping tile upgrades and replacement of the basement floor. The basement was redeveloped to include new family room, 3-piece bathroom, laundry and exercise area. Mechanical upgrades to plumbing, electrical and heating were integral to these changes. Cosmetic changes included redrywalling, new lighting, millwork, painting and flooring.

Basement walls were reframed and insulated and sealed to today's standards. New Low E PVC windows were installed and walls drywalled. As part of the restoration process, millwork details such as these basement stairs were disassembled, retained, refinished and reinstalled.
