The scale of a project like this can be intimidating, but with Total Living Concepts your renovation company, on your side anything is possible. Our process for a project like this is the same as all of our projects: We start with our client; we start with their current home, and what their ideas are:
The inspiration for this addition was for three generations to live under the same roof with harmony and their own sense of space, this approach of ‘Multi-generation homes’ is becoming a more popular trend in North America as we respond to lingering stresses associated with Covid. Our Designer Celeste, came up with an elegant solution to have the grandparents have their own space, and still be integrated with their children and grand children:
By adding space in the garage, it allowed for the family to ensure they had adequate space for additional refrigeration and deep freezers and an extra parking space that is sheltered from the elements. Also, adding the kitchenette in the ‘in-law suite’ allows for a separate dining area when members of the family naturally feel the need to get some of their own space (and maybe quiet)
an area not seen in the above floor plan, is the addition of a master ensuite in the original house. when sharing a house with multiple generations and lots of people, its always important to have adequate bathroom facilities. With the addition of not one but two new bathroom facilities (and a kitchenette), a new septic tank and septic bed was required.
The client was able to have a stunning finished project, and solved a lot of their problems and have already begun the process of identifying other areas of their home where TLC can come in and rejuvenate their space.
One of the benefits of working with Total Living Concepts is that two of our designers are certified with their BCIN (Building Code Identification Number). It means we have the knowledge and ability to design residential spaces from an Ontario building code perspective. We have completed designs and additions all over Simcoe County. This helps when submitting for permits (which TLC does on behalf of their clients when applicable).
