Inside and Out, Top to Bottom

- Arrowhead project 2012


This is a project that will be completed in three stages.

Stage one: The new look

New lights, moldings, new trim on all the windows and doors, complete with new wood and white wash on the vaulted ceiling, then we’ll give everything a fresh coat of paint. Paint is key. There’s nothing like brightening up a room with new colour; it’s like getting a haircut. The old ‘do’ was okay, but the new ‘do’ sharpens the look!

Stage two: Floors and ceilings

Remove all carpeting, install radiant heated tile floors throughout the unit, and replace carpeting in all of the bedrooms. If you ask me, happy feet = happy home. Heated flooring is pleasant on the toes and not to mention a proven energy saver.

Stage three: Bathrooms and finishing touches

Gut the bathrooms to the studs, build a double walk-in master shower with rain and hand-held showerheads, install a new tub in the guest bathroom, repair, repaint and re-use all of vanities. Not every renovation needs all new; re-using items that are in good shape help keep costs down and preserve some of the original feel of the home.

We’ve chosen grays and whites for this project. Our goal is to bring the unit into the now with a more modern and mature finish. We want to maintain its original Whistler charm but upgrade it with a classic look that won’t go out of style.

Here’s an inside look!

 

All of the old furniture and appliances are being donated to The Re-Use-It Centre and Union Gospel Mission.

Out with the old, in with the new

- Eagleridge project 2012

 In the spirit of spring and the launch of our new website, we’re keeping you in the loop with some of our fresh projects, info on events, and new product at the store.

 Here’s one of our current projects in Whistler that puts new meaning into the words ‘spring cleaning’.

The renovations and re-design are proving to be intensive. The drama started when we had to bring in Critter get Ritter, Whistler’s pest control, when we noticed that an army of ants decided to make this their home. Then we noticed a major roof leak and uncovered even more serious damage.

You can see from the photos that there is still plenty of work to be done.

So far, we have torn out the kitchen, repaired the roof leak, installed new cabinets, and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

As you can imagine, the extent of the damage was a surprise to us all and a large portion of the budget went towards restoration.

In the end, we decided to go with faux wood tile floors, neutrals, creamy whites, and chocolate browns for a warm timeless and natural feel.

I’m happy to announce the ants have been evicted and major renovations are in the works. Once the repairs are complete, fresh paint and new furnishings are in, I’m sure the owners will be glad to have their stylish home back to themselves.

The old bathroom plumbing, cabinets, and appliances have all been donated to the Whistler Re-Use-It Centre.
