They say bigger is better. Absolutely true when it came to Scott’s home in North Burnaby. On this project, Kennedy Construction worked with Mark Abbott of Connect Design for the exterior expansion while our in-house designer pulled everything together to achieve a cohesive living space inside. Scott wanted to add on to the back of his house so he could have a substantial master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in closet as well as a larger kitchen and huge covered outdoor deck. This required excavation work and erecting a new foundation for the add-on. City permits and inspections were essential to ensure the new structure was sound and compliant. The customized kitchen used quarter sawn oak for the cabinetry with quartz countertops. A wood plank tile application was used throughout the living room and dining room while the master bedroom’s expanse was covered in quarter sawn oak flooring.
The house extension was meticulously tied into the Stucco finish of the original home to achieve a seamless addition. Exposed aggregate walkways and patio were added along with a new driveway and several small retaining walls. To top off the outdoor comfort, a fireplace was built on the porch to warm up those cool summer evenings. The strict attention to detail really paid off on this stunning home that certainly can boast the “Wow” factor.
