Donna OBrien Designs was happy to help our clients update their home. This project was quite involved, as we had to remove 2 major walls, install 3 structural beams on the main floor and a post in the basement. The client really wanted this open concept and the results were fabulous!

We removed the walls, rebuilt the new open space, added a new kitchen, hardwood throughout,Cambria Quartz countertops, herringbone backsplash, custom fireplace cabinetry, coffered.

With the walls down, it was time for the contractors to start rebuilding. Temporary walls are erected to support the ceiling while the beams are installed. Putting beams in, reframing areas, electrical and plumbing rough ins are the next step. The planning and framing of the coffered ceiling was in the works as well as arranging for all of the materials to be coordinated for delivery and ready for install!

The walls, coffered ceiling and trim are all installed now. With all of the structural components to this renovation completed the painter works on ceilings, trim and first coat of walls. Then the floors and kitchen cabinetry are installed. Countertops are measured and ordered. Electricians are back to continue with finishes, while we wait for countertop install. The carpenters also finish as much trim work as possible during this period.

Dundas, Ontario

Dundas  is a community and former town in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It is nicknamed the Valley Town because of its topographical location at the bottom of the Niagara Escarpment on the Western edge of Lake Ontario. The population has been stable for decades at about twenty thousand, largely because it has not annexed rural land from the protected Dundas Valley Conservation Area.
