Looking for the right home in the right neighbourhood at the right price is a challenge. Combining ownership of your first home with embarking on your first renovation and welcoming your first-born child into the equation all at the same time is like a house hunting triathlon, and it’s exactly what my clients were going through. The goal was to score a family home in an established neighbourhood, and the mandate was to turn an outdated interior into an open concept contemporary home. After they landed on a winning candidate, it was time to cue the demolition crew.
