The Century Home
A smaller project that included some much needed maintenance for this 1893 home in Belleville, ON. Improving the old, deteriorating joists in the basement, leveling out the floors, replacing some windows, a new metal roof and adding a second bathroom made this space feel maintained and ready for a busy family! The main floor bathroom, laundry and mud room have been renovated to make them more user friendly and attractive. Keeping the original character in place included refinishing much of the original wood floors and stairs.
This home will continue to see upgrades over time as budget and lifestyle allow. Future plans include replacement of the ceramic kitchen floor as well as all cabinetry. After that, the exterior siding will be replaced with a colorful board and batten and include new shutters and molding on the porch and gables. Not only is it a much more comfortable home, but the value has more than doubled!
