On-time on-budget entire home renovation
Renovating an entire home is a big endeavour, we understand that staying on budget is important for not only financial health but emotionally as well. These homeowners were in need of more room for their growing family and wanted to create more usable space from their current home's floor plan. Built-in the Westlynn area of North Vancouver, the home is a 1960's bungalow with the main living space on the second floor. The homeowner wanted to renovate without going broke. They were looking for a transparent process to manage their construction project and no costly surprises that might result in overspend. The hunt began for a reputable construction company who would partner with them to offer ideas to improve their vision within their budget, which led them to Upward!
This full home renovation included a full layout change and moving all bedrooms to the second floor. To make the bedrooms quiet and reduce noise, we used additional drywall and strategically positioned insulation on the second floor. The living room, kitchen and dining area were designed to be an open plan with easy access to the back patio. The full renovation included a new mudroom entry area, laundry room, three bathrooms and a custom kitchen. Although much was to be done, we were happy to complete the project on-time and on-budget!
I cannot begin to explain what a pleasure it has been to renovate our home using Upward Construction. I have heard horror stories from other people about being over budget, taking too long, dishonesty. Nothing could be further from the truth. They were efficient, detail oriented, time and budget focused and very transparent. On top of that, the people were lovely and the quality of work was outstanding.There was never a moment that I worried about our renovation. Now we have a beautiful new home without being house rich and cash poor.
