Kanata Main Floor Transformation

This was an extensive project from both a structural and design stand point.

We removed load bearing walls and bulk-heads, we redesigned and installed a custom fireplace, added other custom upgrades and gave the entire main floor an aesthetic transformation.

Client Testimonial

There simply aren’t enough good things to say about this team.

We took on a major main floor reno on a new-to-us home that we knew would require remodeling at purchase. Cindy and Gilbert were on board and making plans with us before we had even closed on the house. Responsive, patient, professional, willing to work within our budget and roll with the hiccups (and there were many in our project). Mirrored for all the tradespeople Total Home works with. All of them were efficient, friendly, and most importantly produced high quality work. Truly a one-stop shop. After all the dust settled it looked and felt like a brand new home.

Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
