About: Thankful for all of the online education they’ve received from other weekend warriors through blogs and forums, Paul and Sacha decided they’d like to ‘give back’ to the online home improvement learning community by setting up and starting a blog on their own home improvement endeavors. Anyone who takes the time to read their posts will be glad they did.

Starting at the Bottom

Beginning with the in-law suite on the lower level, they pretty much gutted the small bathroom before putting it back together in a brighter and more spacious fashion. The dark and unappealing bedroom was transformed into a fresh and modern space with paint, new carpet and inexpensive, yet stylish furniture and accessories.

Moving Up

Paul and Sacha are the perfect example of people who think, research and plan before jumping in head first. Their kitchen was demolished in April and not functional again until September. Many people would be in such a hurry to get that part of their house up and running again that they would do poor planning and thoughtless purchasing. Not these two! They took their positions as general contractors very seriously. First, they created a list of the kitchen renovation jobs they could do themselves (to save money), then they found a contractor/builder who would work with them on their terms. After conducting many interviews and checking tons of references, they also hired an electrician and a plumber. Wanting to get it right the first time, they did extensive research on cabinets, flooring and appliances before making these major purchases.

They haven’t allowed themselves to be limited to small, inefficient rooms. They’ve re-planned the layout of the entire second floor, removed walls, relocated the kitchen from the left side of the house to the back wall, added a bathroom and replaced a window with French doors. The new layout effectively improved the flow of the space and allowed them to take advantage of natural light from all sides.

This industrious young couple has made a lot of progress on two levels. With one more level to go, they are well on their way to a complete renovation. We can all learn a lot from the way they’ve planned and carried out the work that needed to be done. Thank you to Paul and Sacha for sharing their adventures, and here’s to their continued success!
