Davisville Phased Addition

Sustainable Renovation and Addition to Existing Masonry Home

Phases 1 included a basement renovation, utilizing new structure to create an open concept plan. Subsequent phases provided new second floor additions to both the front and rear of the house, to add a new high-end washroom and sitting room. The ground floor kitchen was completely renovated and expanded by removing underutilized space and incorporating it into the new kitchen. The whole house was over-clad with Comfort board insulation and new wood siding to eliminate thermal bridging and create a highly insulated structure, while utilizing the thermal mass of the existing masonry walls.
