Re: Legalizing an Existing Non-Conforming Secondary Suite on ALR Land, Summerland B.C

“Hi Mike,
Thank you so much for your help in legalizing our secondary suite. Brilliant work on your part, I can’t see it happening without you!

Ron N, Summerland BC.

Re: New house design on a mountain top above the Kelowna airport, B.C

Hi Bill

Please share with all. Yes! Concrete will be poured tomorrow. Hail Mary! Thank your crew for their work and their ability to cope with my thinking. Jeff in particular was responsive and competent and great to work with. Mike is inspired and artistic talent lurks close to the surface. We are not done yet and will involve Mike in thinking about water! We also have another building to consider – the “art studio” Thanks and regards,

Jan and Lidia

Throwback Thursday! This was one of our favorite projects of 2020. This client had a very specific, ambitious vision in mind and we were delighted to help them bring their vision to life. Two stone towers flank a bespoke entrance door, creating a striking focal point. The towers and other rock features on the property were built using blast rock that was recovered from the site excavation. This ties the house to the land in a style reminiscent of a medieval castle while the clean lines bring the overall effect into the modern age.

Tired of the winter blues? Definitely!
Tired of these brick inspirations from @benmyhre? NEVER!

Brick can be a divisive issue. Some people prefer the traditional approach with weathered patinas. Others choose a more modern take on a classic building style by giving it a pop of colour. Whatever your personal style it's important to use the right materials and do your research. Brick needs to breathe and is incredibly porous so this is not an easy task for the casual DIY'er. When done correctly though it can make a bold statement and increase the curb appeal of your home.

If you're in the market for a refresh on your personal space call 250-494-0747 for a free consultation. Our team can help you plan for everything from renovations and rebuilds to rezones and relaxing landscapes.
