Brock Street Renovation


This major renovation converted a house in Toronto's Bloordale Village into a single family residence while improving the structure, systems, insulation and envelope.

A high-efficiency boiler, new compact radiators and wood-burning stove keep the home warm and cosy. The open concept ground floor with light on three sides is a great family space. The basement, with its direct outside access, can easily be converted into an in-law suite in the near future. Owner, local realtor Donal Ward-McCarthy, understands the value of investing in downtown property and sees his new home as a model for development in the neighbourhood. Read More
