Live Project: Historic home renovation and extension
Estimated cost: $579,929
Start date: May 2021
Bruno and his wife are a newly retired couple looking to renovate a historic home and turn it into a lovely nest. Bruno's project involves the renovation of a century house in the heart of Mile-End. With a current value of $500K, the dwelling stands to be worth $1M with the addition of a home extension.

To the left of the couple's home stands a parking lot that they want to hang onto. The home extension will still be built at that left — but over this parking lot. The new second-level space will be supported by concrete pillars, allowing cars to be parked below and for people to walk underneath.
