Kitsilano character reno

Jon and his team at Rain City Renovations did a major renovation on my Kitsilano character home, including redoing the layout of the main floor to allow for a large eat-in kitchen, updating the wiring and plumbing, and adding a bathroom upstairs. The quality of the work was outstanding, and Jon’s attention to detail was impressive. I particularly appreciated the fact that the renovation was extremely sympathetic to the character features of my home, and preserved the best of the old while seamlessly incorporating the new. The end result is a bright, airy and comfortable home that I will be able to enjoy for many years.

The renovation process was extremely smooth, and came in on time and on budget. Jon and his whole team were friendly and easy to work with, and were excellent problem solvers. Old houses always give you a few surprises once you start opening up walls, and Jon and his team were always able to think outside the box and come up with creative, practical and beautiful solutions. If you are looking for quality work and attention to detail, you can’t go wrong with Rain City Renovations.

Added a top floor recording studio

This was an unusual renovation, I'm sure. I wanted to build a professional recording studio in my house by adding a top floor to an existing bungalow. Jon and his team were a great pleasure to work with. Coordinating with the architects, subcontractors, and studio designer, Jon put together a studio for me that was beyond expectations. There were no issues or hiccups at all in the work, and I couldn't be happier with the final product. I would highly recommend Rain City Renovations for any job, be it a new kitchen, new bathroom, or a whole recording studio! In fact, I am having Jon and his team build my garage next.

condo renovation

We have worked with Jon in the past and he has always done a great job for us. On this occasion he fit our recent renovation into his already busy schedule. We have always found Jon to be honest and reliable and he kept us informed about the progress of the renovations. His crew members were hardworking and courteous. We are very pleased with the completed renovation.

home addition (wine cellar, bathroom, storage room, expansion of dining room)

Rain City Renovations did an outstanding job maintaining the character and integrity of our 1930s home from the inside and to the outside. The attention to detail, incredible craftsmanship, and creative problem solving for small spaces has given us a finished product that we love to live in every day! We finished our job on time and on budget.

Laneway Home

We were referred to Jon by a family friend, and were very impressed with him even at the interview stage. We wanted to build a custom laneway home for a family member, and he listened and paid attention to our wants and needs.
We chose to have Jon manage the project end to end, and were never disappointed. He was on top of things throughout, and there were never any scheduling delays with his crew, sub-trades, or even city inspectors. His long term relationship with his crew and sub-trades was clearly evident. As this was a custom home it was appreciated how well he worked with the architect too.
The quality of construction and attention to detail was above average, and we continue to receive compliments on our home from everyone that visits.
The project was on time and on budget, and we would highly recommend Jon and Rain City Renovations (and have already done so many times).

Home Reno Rescue

Jon was referred to us by our structural engineer as an individual who had a high attention to detail and produced a fantastic product and we were not disappointed. After a bad experience with another builder, Jon came in to save the day. He took on problems caused by the other builder and also provided guidance on how we can complete our project in the most timely and cost effective way. It was a huge asset to have a someone we could trust who actively worked with us to achieve our dream home. I have would have zero hesitation recommending Jon and his team.

Character House Renovation

Rain City completed a major renovation of our character home in 2016, including kitchen, bathrooms, new electrical and new windows. We can’t say enough good things about Jon, our project manager Elliot, and the rest of the Rain City team. They are an honest, knowledgeable, reliable and hardworking crew who went above and beyond our expectations.

Jon has very high standards and attention to detail that is reflected in his employees and the trades he uses. He also has great a sense of design! He offered excellent advice and suggestions on how to make our space even better and would always take the time to answer our many questions.

We are so thrilled with the outcome. It was a pleasure to work with Jon and his team and we would highly recommend them (a 12/10!!).
