At the time my house needed renovation, I have been shopping around from one build to another. To renovate it cost about $150,000
to $200,000. This would give me new roof, new windows, and updated bedroom, kitchen and bath.
I was also thinking about the option of a complete new rebuild. That would have 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, kitchen, living room, finished basement, which would give me 3000 sq/ft house. The estimate was $900,000 to $1,000,000.
I keep thinking which way to go? Renovate or rebuild? New rebuild would be great but over my budget. Renovation will not fix the many of the house's shortfall and would not meet all my wish.
One day, I drove by O'connor and Pape area in Toronto, I saw house like mine, an old bungalo brick house. Classic View was working on the house. I called Classic View and met with Omri. I show him pictures of my house, tell him what I am looking for. Then several days later, Omri provided floor plans, materials, and cost estimate between $350,000 to $400,000. And then the contract is prepaired, the architech design, floor plan layout, material will be used, and schedule to finish the project.
After the contract was signed, it took Omri several weeks to get the building permit. Thank God! I have made the right choice. Classic View and Omri have delivery what I was looking for. The main floor is completely renovated and new additional 2nd floor. Now my house have 4 bedrooms, 2 libraries, 2 full baths, 2 powder rooms, kitchen, laundry room, living room, and a deck. Additional 2700 sq/ft was added.
The project is completed on time. Thank you Classic View and Omri in giving what I am looking for, most importantly, the cost is in my budget.
