CHALK IT UP

THE RE­SULTS

What was the best mo­ment dur­ing the process? When the dry wall was up you could re­ally see how amaz­ing the new space was go­ing to be. How does the new space work for you? It works ex­tremely well for us. We wanted a kitchen where Marc and I could cook to­gether. It turned out to be such a large space. Su­san has de­liv­ered on all fronts.

What’s your favourite fea­ture of the new space? It’s hard to pick just one, I love my bak­ing corner as well as the break­fast bar.

Any ma­jor dis­as­ters? Mirelle: We had is­sues with the roof. We were only go­ing to re­place half but we ended up re­do­ing the en­tire thing. Deal­ing with Qual-Built made this not as scary as it could have been.

BUD­GET

What was your bud­get? We had a bud­get of $50,000. We splurged on a wine and bev­er­age fridge. We could have kept with just one but they are handy and ev­ery­one loves it…

What did you save on? We stained the floors and did the paint­ing our­selves.
