Combine Two Condos Into One

My project was to combine two adjacent ground floor condo units, a split level artist live / work loft, and a small single level unit, previously used as my office. A key element was combining the two electrical panels into one so we could relocate the bathroom to make room for a doorway between the two units.

Since I had been contemplating this reno for many years I had developed quite a list of ideas. The design and budget steps used by Little Star Renovations during the planning process very skillfully helped ensure that my wishes and wallet overlapped sufficiently to make the renovation a reality. They subtly offered many suggestions along the way that allowed me to determine where it made sense to spend or compromise.

I decided to sleep in the upper level of my condo and use the shower at my employer's nearby office so I could devote more money to the actual renovation. This gave me the opportunity to see the trades people every single day during the entire construction phase. It was very easy to see the expertise that each person brought to the project.

The biggest challenge we faced was getting the development and building permits, which was way more complex than expected. For example the city required that we measure the height, width and depth of each individual bicycle locker in the entire building AND count how many bike supports were mounted vertically up from the floor and horizontally out from the wall.

While I still don't understand what that had to do with relocating my bathroom, to their credit, Little Star Renovations persevered through the entire lengthy permit process. Without their dedication this project might never have happened.

I would not hesitate to recommend Little Star Renovations.
