    The first time I met Will he was kind and warm but not overly effusive or outgoing. While we were nominally having a job interview, it really became more of a philosophical discussion about storytelling and interactions between people. On a couple of occasions, he listened very quietly while I went on and on (hoping I was making sense). When […]

    As you gather with loved ones at your place this weekend, take a moment to think about why you are grateful to be in your home. Is it the way the sun shines through the dining room window at dusk? Or the fact that the hors d’oeuvres never make it to the living room because everyone would rather crowd around […]

    Last week, I met a woman who had just lived through every homeowners worst nightmare- her home was gutted by a fire. This horrible tragedy destroyed all her family’s belongings as well as taking the life of the family dog. As I listened to her story, I was struck by the details, but I was even more impacted by her attitude. The couple, nearing retirement, is viewing this […]

Let’s unlock some of […]

    When you decide to renovate your Niagara home, or build a new one, you are doing more than spending money on the project — it is a huge emotional and time investment.

    When starting a renovation project, one of the first questions homeowners need to answer is “How am I going to complete my renovation project?” For many, involving trades people or hiring a builder/contractor is part of the solution. But, here in Niagara, we have an oversaturated market of builders, contractors and trades vying for our business. How do you weed through the hundreds […]

    For this project, the homeowners are managing the project themselves and have already done a TON of work. They bought this country farmhouse earlier this year, and once we were into the design process and had nailed down the layout, the homeowner started the demolition. It was his fervor that really inspired us in our DIY Renovation Guide, as we saw first hand how homeowners could really save themselves a lot of money if they were willing to get their hands dirty.

    Each renovation is can be approached from a different angle. It doesn't matter if you are renovating a bathroom, or adding a great-room addition, with each project you need to ask yourself "How am I going to complete this project?" Do you tackle it yourself and save a few bucks or do you hire it out to professionals? If you're hiring someone, do you go with a custom builder or do you hire a guy working out of a pick-up truck? There are many questions that you need to wade through and sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start.

    This simple quiz will provide you with valuable insight into your renovation project and how your unique approach has a direct impact on your renovation. We created this survey to help you determine what renovation approach is the best fit for you, either DIY, using a contractor or taking an artisan approach. Depending on how you answer these simple true or false questions, you will be direct to one of three white papers (coming next week) that provide you with deep insider knowledge specific to your unique approach. Not all renovations have the same problems or opportunities, and that's why we have created this survey so you have access to the most valuable information for your project.
