Blind Bay Makeover

Here at Copper Island Fine Homes, it’s not always about new construction. Since inception almost two decades ago, Copper Island Fine Homes has also specialized in whole home renovations, and over the years, we’ve completed dozens of makeovers, including some that have won Canadian Home Builders Association awards.

Here’s a peek at one of latest renovations projects. It’s a complete updating of an older home in Blind Bay. Below you can see a before and after photo, but keep in mind that our work is far from complete on this project and the difference between the original and the finished product will be far more dramatic.

One excellent feature of this reno is the clients’ decision to bring the outdoors in (and vice versa) through the addition of the huge folding/sliding doors onto the deck that you see to the right in the photo below. On sunny days, these doors can be opened up to create a huge access point to the deck. These unique, high quality doors are supplied by Kelowna-based Folding Sliding Doors Canada, which we’ve worked with on other projects in the past.

Inside, we’re currently in the rough-in stage for electrical and plumbing. In the new year, we’ll pivot quickly to get insulation and drywall up. At that point, we’ll be working on major kitchen updates, including all new appliances, cabinets, plumbing and lighting. We’ll also be installing new flooring in the main living and kitchen area, giving the exterior a facelift, and possibly redoing the expansive deck.

Our goal is to get our clients, who are enduring the reno in the downstairs portion of the house, back upstairs in their new space by the spring. Our thanks to them for allowing us to rebuild their Shuswap dream!
