Renovating a Heritage Home

It was exciting to renovate this elegant home in Elbow Park as it was only the second renovation in its 100-year history. Originally built in the early 1900s, the first renovation was in the 1960s. This included an addition to the front of the house and remodeling with asbestos-laden materials.  As this substance is now known to be dangerous, Malbec Homes & Renovations adhered to strict standards for removal. Other major parts of our renovation included:

  • Reworking the 4-bedroom upper floor so it became 3 bedrooms with a master bedroom ensuite.
  • Removing walls and reframing the main floor to make it more open.
  • Removing the sunshine ceiling in the kitchen, and making the ceiling height nine feet, further adding to a feeling of openness.
  • Extending the kitchen cabinets and adding an island to increase storage and counter space.
  • Exposing and treating original brickwork in both the kitchen and an upstairs bedroom to make the most of heritage features.

Make Your Calgary Basement a Luxury Suite with a Custom Remodel

Whether it’s for guests, a live-in in-law, or even a master suite tucked away from all the noise, basement suites are a great way to create extra living space without pushing out your home’s walls and getting caught up with complex Calgary regulations. And with the luxury touch from the professionals at Malbec Homes & Renovations, you’ll never have to worry about the comfort and coziness of your basement denizens.

Renovate Away the Basement Feel

That traditional horror-film feel your basement has doesn’t need to be a part of your Calgary home, and Malbec Homes & Renovations makes it easy to banish the dank and dark. Your underground accommodations will be just as inviting as any other room in the house—maybe even more so, when we add a few luxury touches.

Imagine a bathroom and even a bedroom with heated floors, recessed lighting that gives rooms a naturally bright look, complete temperature control, and any additional add-ons you can think of (fully wired entertainment system? fully modern kitchenette? we can do that!). Most basements in Calgary are a blank canvas before a remodel, so the sky—or the ceiling—really is the limit.
