A basement renovation story
WHEN Sherri and her young daughter Celeste needed a fresh start, Sherri quite accidentally happened upon an open house that changed the direction of their lives.
The house was in need of many updates but Sherri knew this was ‘her house’ and the two moved into their new home in the summer of 2006.
“There was actually too much room and I could not imagine filling all of the rooms,” says Sherri. “Six weeks later I met Mark who had two children of his own. We got married in the summer of 2009.”
This blended family soon outgrew their home and the couple decided to explore the option of having their basement finished.
“We had called several companies,” says Sherri “but only three ever bothered to call back.” The company they finally went with was Winnipeg-based and -owned All Canadian Renovations.
“We had seen that they had won so many awards and had pictures of their work on their website. The warranty is what convinced us,” Sherri continued. “We needed the extra space for our blended family.” The couple started renovations in March 2009.
This basement reno won Gold in the basement development competition at the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s Renovation of the Year contest.
