Home Improvement Contractors Belleville & Tweed

Double Addition - Tweed Area

This century old log home was charming, but very small and VERY outdated. The two additions allowed for a separate laundry room and storage area and a new, beautiful, spacious bathroom with a walk-in closet. These additions also allowed for much more space in the main house. The entire interior of the main house was completely renovated, bringing the home up to a modern comfort level, while maintaining the character of a proud century home.The living space in this home went from 1400 sq. ft. to 1800 sq. Ft. not including the additional outdoor sitting space provided by two new decks.
