4th Project

Posted by:Aleksandra Oleksak

Today’s post will encompass 3 things; Cool Homes (is it wrong thinking your own home is cool?), my featured listing and a before and after of my home renovation. This renovation is my 4th one and my 2nd one in the Junction Triangle in Toronto and it was definitely challenging at times. Lot’s of hard work, sweat and tears went into this project, more so then others and I couldn’t be more excited that it’s finally done. I would call this project my labour of love/hate. Lot’s of valuable lessons were learned along the way, but I’ll save those for another post. In the meantime, here are the before and afters………

I will make one comment regarding the master bedroom as you can’t really tell from the pictures, I vaulted my ceiling in this bedroom, so it went from a 9 ft ceiling to a 16 ft ceiling!!!!
