Unlike home builders in new communities who are able to showcase their craftsmanship at open houses, renovators don’t often have the same opportunity to showcase a finished project due to the privacy of their clients as the homes we design are already occupied.
However, recently a record number of Calgarians found out what the Pinnacle experience was all about at our Spring Reno Tour. Visitors from across the city came in throngs and were able to have a personal tour through our spectacular whole home renovation in the prestigious community of Pumphill. Viewing our display boards they were able to see the before pictures, 3D renderings and before and after blue prints followed by the opportunity to walk through the home and experience the transformation first hand!
Guests could not believe the enormity of the project and the array of visually stunning details that were captured in this 7 month renovation. The discerning client had purchased the 2500 sq ft bungalow with the intent of renovating the property. Through our in-depth design discovery process we were able to uncover the homeowner’s vision, lifestyle requirements and personality that were then reflected in the design. Maintaining the exterior integrity found in homes located in this esteemed neighborhood was imperative, at the same, our mandate was to create an innovative, custom designed contemporary space that better reflected this successful business owner’s active lifestyle.
Gutting to the studs was necessary and decreased the carbon foot print by an impressive 40%. We thickened exterior walls, replaced all the mechanical systems as well as replaced the windows and ceiling insulation. The whole home design supported the relocation of the staircase presenting an elegant invitation to the lower level. This solution to function condensed traffic lines and prioritized living spaces on all levels.
Visitors were also able to ask top industry specialists their renovation questions and understand in more detail why Pinnacle is unique. We are thrilled with the response we received and with the amount of guests who are convinced that Pinnacle is the renovator of choice for their upcoming renovation needs! We are extremely grateful to our client who opened their home to the public to view this project and we once again extend our sincere thanks for allowing Calgary to see what Pinnacle is truly about.
Topping off the event was our grand prize draw for an Ipad 2 – valued at $619. Congratulations to our winner Cheryl Mazurek!
