To really get to know a Builder you must go beyond viewing online galleries, reading their promotional materials or having a quick conversation at a tradeshow booth; you need to have meaningful conversations with the staff and trades in their environment and see the craftsmanship up front and centre! Whether you are just in the dreaming phases, or have detailed questions about your own project you are considering, or you are a valued past Pinnacle Client wanting to support the Pinnacle community, our Renovation Tours are not to be missed! We are committed to being a leader in transparency and accessibility and hope you will join us as we open the doors to two phenomenal Client family projects in the established communities of Varsity and Brentwood in June!
Initially on June 8th, we will showcase a luxury estate home main floor Renovation of an exquisite two storey walkout, backing on to the Silver Springs golf course. This Client Family desired an open concept kitchen and living area that provided functionality and supported their love of cooking international dishes, requiring substantial and accessible storage space for spices. As well, they wanted to open up the site lines to the golf course and back yard pool. The master ensuite was also updated and changed to a walk-in shower. It was imperative to this Client that areas of the home not being Renovated were protected and kept clean. The result is an exquisite high-end home transformation that captures the impressive outdoor views and allows the Client to flourish and thoroughly enjoy and utilize their living space.
When: Saturday June 8th, 2013
Time: 10am - 4pm
Where: 646 Varsity Estates Cres NW
On June 22nd, we will feature a Renovation of a Client family home that came about unfortunately because of a family illness that required the home owners to move from their beloved farm home to the city into what was previously their rental property. This Renovation was a very emotional journey for this family; it was imperative that the home transformation capture distinct elements of the farm home that was so near and dear to their hearts, which they left behind. They wanted to create a true sense of comfort reminiscent of their previous home, since the move was a matter of life circumstances versus choice. This Client expressed that they were attracted to Pinnacle’s process assuredness, guaranteed timelines, full service business model and personal approach, which was necessary to successfully facilitate a Renovation under these circumstances. This project included a complete gut of the main floor, with added square footage to support reconfigured traffic lines and improve curb appeal aesthetics. The result is the transformation of a dated 1200 square foot bungalow main floor that is now a comfortable, tasteful and cozy haven.
When: Saturday June 22nd, 2013
Time: 10am - 4pm
Where: 3504 Bulyea Crescent NW

We recently had the opportunity to participate in an incredible community initiative for an organization that is near and dear to our hearts and that Pinnacle has been supporting for many years. The Safe Haven Foundation’s Haven’s Way Home serves as a much needed reprieve for many young girls; assisting in them in getting off the streets and safely away from a life of crime, prostitution and homelessness. The Haven’s Way home opened in 1996 and has seen many foot prints on the carpets and smiles through their doors.
Pinnacle staff, alongside our incredible team of long standing trades, worked together to transform one of their safe homes. It was our mandate to take care of much needed repairs, maintenance, replace floor coverings, paint, refurbish and clean the home. Not only was it a great way to give back to this incredible organization that has successfully seen so many girls transition from this program and continue on to a positive, fulfilling life which includes post secondary education opportunities, it was also a fabulous team building experience for all of our staff and trades.
Canyon Plumbing lent a hand and donated new faucets and shower heads, 4-Star Electric provided new smoke detectors and completed a safety check of all electrical systems from top to bottom, and Just In Time Furnace donated a complete furnace clean for the suites. Floors with Flair transformed the flooring which was graciously donated by them and Digital Lifestyles provided some much needed audio/video components! All of our staff and trades worked feverously to get the entire makeover completed in 2 days!
We are looking forward to transforming a second Haven’s Way Home at the end of May and continuing this collaborative initiative in supporting “at risk” teen girls in Calgary.

On Saturday May 11th, 2013, we will be showcasing our recently completed project located in the prominent community of Spring Bank. This phenomenal home’s main floor kitchen, living and dining room was Renovated, creating an open concept floor plan that embraces functionality and the Client family’s lifestyle. The distinctive kitchen design incorporates dual islands and impressive maple cabinetry, finished in a high gloss clear coat. A unique point of interest about this project is that the entire existing kitchen was donated and repurposed at Camp Kindle; serving children and families facing childhood cancer! As well, the entire basement was gutted and remodelled to compliment the main floor design, accommodating dedicated study, work, entertainment and guest areas. Come and see the detailed design choices in the spectacular finishes that exude pride of ownership. We look forward to seeing you there!
