case study

Open concept triplex remodel in Montreal

Renovation cost

Cost: $58,000

Renovation duration

Duration: 6 weeks

Following the purchase of a triplex, the homeowner decided to renovate the ground-floor apartment. The living room was transformed into a primary bedroom with an ensuite bathroom (made possible by the demolition of a wardrobe). 

The removal of the wardrobe and opening up of walls allowed another bedroom to be transformed into an open-concept living room with access to the kitchen, which was also partially remodelled. Fresh paint and hardwood floors were added to all rooms, and the house’s electrical installation was upgraded, including the replacement of the electrical panel and the installation of lighting. 

Note: Due to existing plumbing defects and non-conformities of the electrical installations discovered during demolition work (opening of floors and walls), the scope of the project was adjusted accordingly to accommodate repairs and the upgrading of elements.
