We received an email from Amber of Māk Interiors, about an extensive renovation project she took on of a heritage home in Vancouver’s South Granville area. The home had great bones, but needed to be completely gutted to open up the tiny rooms and make the home more spacious and family friendly. It is a wonderful example of how you can modernize a traditional/historic home without losing its character. And I am all for the if-you-can't-make-it-work-gut-it philosophy.
Here are a couple of before photos.
And this is what it looks like after Amber had her way with it. :-) You can read more about it here.
