The old small home sat unchanged for years on a beautiful waterfront property near Victoria BC. The clients, owners of Falcon Heights Contracting Ltd, have a long term outlook and love of smaller modest homes. Through careful planning and execution much of the original structure was preserved and added to in a way that could accommodate their family of 4 and keep the house foot print to a minimum thereby maximizing the beautiful yard and sense of space. The home won a gold Georgie award in 2012 for best renovation $100-300k.
