October 14, 2012 ... WaterHouse Open House

One of the benefits of designing a home for someone, is getting to celebrate together when all of the hard work is completed!  Our WaterHouse clients decided to open their house up to friends and family on Sunday afternoon to commemorate and unveil the transformation.

The presentation panels that we prepared for the Board of Variance were on display showing images of the previous house, and renderings of the now completed design.  As a result of the proposal, we were granted variances which allowed the construction of a large covered front porch and the addition of a third storey, which otherwise would not have been permitted.

It was a great afternoon with food, drinks, and friendly conversation. The owners took guests on regular guided tours through the fully renovated home and new top storey.  As they had completed a lot of the finishing work themselves, we all had a great time ‘oooh-ing’ and ‘aaah-ing’ at their handy-work.  It was a pleasure to see their friends and family discover the great spaces that had been created, and learn about the sustainable and contemporary materials that were used.  Thanks to the hosts for a wonderful afternoon!
