It’s that time of year again! This Sunday, October 2nd commences the 21st annual LHBA Parade of Renovations. You might have seen our cover feature in this past Sunday’s Home Section of the London Free Press. As noted, we have participated in the Parade every year since its inception. Money raised by the Parade will be given to London’s Cancer Survivor Garden, located at the intersection of Riverside Dr. and Wonderland Rd. in McKillop Park.

Look for our two projects this year, one in Old South at 95 Baseline Rd. E, and the other in Downtown London known as Raleigh House at 639 Talbot Street (accessed at Barton Street just west of Talbot).

Project 1: 95 Baseline Road E.
Who needs a cottage when your backyard is a luxury oasis! A separated addition containing a workout room with a golf simulator is connected to the existing house by a colonnade with a coffered ceiling. This covered area bridging the main house and the addition achieves spectacular indoor-outdoor living the client was looking for.


AFTER: The architectural colonnade connects the new exercise room with the main house.

AFTER: The outside kitchen area with dining space for guests sits under a beatiful coffered celing.

Project 2: Raleigh House, 639 Talbot Street

The Raleigh House has just completed a breathtaking transformation from a sorority home to a private estate housing three luxury condominiums. With the renovation and grounds restoration completed, this is downtown London’s hidden jem. The project’s three condominiums are currently for sale to private owners so inquires are welcome.
