Home Renovation from Top to Bottom

You’d never believe it’s the same house! In this renovation, witness a major transformation from original frame to complete renovation, plus a full addition over the garage. The original house was in major need of an upgrade, and it had some serious flaws. As you’ll see, the house was transformed from a wood frame two-bedroom aluminum-sided home to a five-bedroom stucco-clad home with three bathrooms and a new garage. The entire house was rewired and had its services upgraded. It is now equipped with forced air gas heating and an air conditioning system complete with air filtration and humidification.

The exterior of the house originally consisted of aluminum siding over brick facade, featuring a very unsafe leaning garage. Its windows were of the old, single glazed variety, its walls were uninsulated, and poor-grade drainage meant that the basement was constantly wet. Of course, before the demolition could begin, the house had to be cleared of all debris.
