From fixer upper to dream home

My husband and I bought a dilapidated Craftsman bungalow in East Van in the fall of 2014, and we basically had to gut the main floor and start over.
VGC were the friendliest company we met with, and their budget came in among the most reasonable of the 6 quotes that we got. We started working with the architect on drawings of the new layout and couldn't believe what they were able to do. We ended up taking out two supporting walls, adding beams and completely redesigning the layout of the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Instead of a tiny window in the kitchen we added French doors straight out to the deck, which filled the kitchen with extra light.
Every part of the process, from design to finishing decisions and the work itself was handled with care, and the whole team were warm and friendly throughout. We're especially thankful to their carpenter Sean Barton, who designed us a beautiful new fireplace surround to match the existing wainscoting, and created new window frames to match the existing ones from 1920 perfectly.
While the renovation cost a lot of money, and took a little longer than expected, the work was excellent and we're over the moon with the results. I would happily recommend VGC to anyone:)
