  • Custom Design Remodels To Love Your Home Again

Over the years you may find yourself living in a space that feels out of date, or perhaps it just doesn't work for your family's needs anymore. When this happens you can choose to leave your home as it is, play around with the idea of selling it, or you can consider a custom design remodel, to bring your home back to it's former glory, or maybe even better than before.

As full-service builders, taking someone through from planning to design, right through to construction and delivery is one of our favourite ways to reignite a love affair with your home.

Kelowna Custom Design Home Remodels


Did you know that most Canadians prefer to do a full home remodel as opposed to selling their home? There are many reasons for this but some that we see time and time again are:

  • Sentiment. Many people love their house, not because of what it looks like or where it is located, but because they love the memories they have made in it. Raising children, pride of ownership and precious events and holidays with friends and family are not easily let go of for some.
  • The NeighbourhoodOften homeowners choose to stay in their home and complete a custom design renovation because they love the location. Excellent schools, mature trees and an established connection to the community are all excellent reasons to stay put.
  • Great Property. When you find yourself in a home that has the perfect 'bones', lot and foliage, you may find yourself leaning towards a home remodel when the time comes for a change.

Whatever your reason, staying in a home your love most things about is a great idea. Partnering with a custom home remodeler will allow you to make changes to the things that need updating, but keeping what you like as is.


Updating Your House with a Custom Design Renovation


A custom design renovation, or a Home Retrofit, is a type of remodel that involves:

  1. Changes to your entire home to update it's style, design, and interior finishes
  2. Assessing the exterior to decide of you want to complete any renovations there
  3. Sometimes making tweaks or adjustments to the layout, or floor plan
  4. Making any fixes and changes you have been thinking about to increase its functionality

‚ÄčEverything that happens in your home is based on your wants, needs and vision for you new space while working with an experienced interior designer and your custom home builder. Because your home is being completely redone, your needs may require structural changes, new layout plans, additions to be completed, as well as a complete design change. If necessary, the design-build contractor would work with experts to consult on architectural or engineering work for you. Doing this all at the same time allows you to create a beautiful home that still aligns with your budget and timeline expectations.
