We do more

Recently, we received an Email from a satisfied couple who wanted to share the before and after pictures of their successful renovation project with us since we do more than just sell stock house plans!

These before pictures are of Chantal and Jacques home in a rural Quebec village


This courageous couple wanted to take part in the actual “re-birth” of their home which ended up keeping them busy 7 days a week for 7 months. With the help of our plan customization team, they were able to create the look that they wanted on paper and then to bring it to life in their project!

They hired our technical people to work with them to help them determine what was involved in creating the plan for the home of their dreams. They then were able to retain the services of a general contractor who was willing to accomplish the lion’s share of the project and to build a detached garage to match while leaving the final steps to them in order to save on the cost of the manpower involved in the project.

According to the couple, without the help of family and friends the project would not have seen the light of day. Not only was the removal of the white siding required but they discovered a second, gray siding that also had to be eliminated.

They were forced to work against the clock until the beginning of July to take out the old roof. Despite the occasional thunderstorm, from which they protected the home with a tarp, much of the project took place under a warm and sunny sky.

All 43 of the windows and 8 doors, two of which are garage doors,  were changed

Both of the solariums were completely re done and Jacques took care of all of the electrical and plumbing work himself.

The contour of the home was drained  and a membrane was installed over the existing foundation.

The couple is proud of their stunning accomplishment and we are really happy that they so generously sent these photos that we are pleased to be able to share with you.

Our modifications and renovations team would be happy to help you to create the perfect plan as well.
