This project was a complete renovation that was added to an existing home originally built in 1905. The design phase presented some interesting challenges, as the previous owners built a few additions without permits or proper building practices. Additionally, the original home was built too close to a fish bearing creek, which meant if our clients wanted to build new, they would have had to move the build thirty meters away from the creek.
After a lot of research and negotiation with the city of Langley, we were able to grandfather in the existing footprint of the home by keeping a small percentage of an original wall and extend the home to 4,500 square feet. Despite the challenges we faced, we were able to fulfill our clients dreams and provide them with a beautiful home featuring a living room with a two sided fireplace, bathroom ensuite featuring a Japanese style soaker tub, two rear patios, and a media room.
