Rich architectural details skew tradition, paired with contemporary, welcoming spaces at Burnaby Lake! Last month’s home tour revisited 30 days later with a photo timeline refresher!
Now it’s time to look beyond the framing and the roof! This home is now drywalled, taped and mudded — presenting you with a condensed project gallery worth exploring! (Take note how tidy and organized our TQ Crew keeps our sites!) For some, the renovation and design process can be intimidating. Our upcoming seminar How to Build or Renovate Your Dream Home might be just for you! This is why TQ Construction hosted a guided house tour of this “mid-way construction” point this past July on location at Burnaby Lake. This new custom home is a sprawling 3,000 sq. ft. rancher with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and key features highlighting. After finding the pre-existing 2 story house on the lot unsalvageable, TQ began demolition January 2017. Our client requested a new home that would allow family members to age-in-place. To satisfy this requirement, we developed a spacious single level rancher. This full feature home is topped with a modern metal pitched roof, insulated concrete form (ICF) poured walls, cedar siding, Feng Shui requirements and complex design elements such as 35 ft. truss spans. The new house was re-located to the center of the lot to improve privacy. The forecasted budget for this home is just under $1.6 million and approximately $485/sq. ft., in contrast to a more straightforward design-build at $300-$350/sq. ft.
