The Outgrown Home

What do you do when your young family of four has outgrown the two-bedroom bungalow in which you currently reside? Do you move and relocate from your central Toronto home to a larger home in one of the outlying neighborhoods of the GTA? Or do you simply add to the home you have? If you are like most of the families in an urban area and the thought of becoming a commuter family does not interest you, the latter is the more popular option.

In the summer of 2005, Fiona and Paul commenced work on an addition to their home with local builder M-Group Custom Homes. Their 750-square-foot home underwent a complete transformation. The customized kitchen overlooks a sunken family room with full library, media center and three-way fireplace at the rear of the main floor.

The family loves their new home. The use of space and the flow of the rooms works well for their young family, and the small upgrades, such as the library ladder in the family room and the custom-designed shoe and hockey vestibule, makes their house unique to them. The time frame was a definite plus - the family was only out of their house for approximately four months, versus the 6-8 months typically taken by other builders.
