Please read this important winterization bulletin to ensure your home is prepared for winter.
Do you have automatic sprinklers?
It’s time for an annual irrigation system “blow out”. Fall winterization is recommended to ensure that your system does not freeze over the winter. Winterization involves more than just turning the water off. It is also recommended that water be forced out of your sprinkler pipes with an industrial compressor.

Right from the beginning it was evident that this Coquitlam Renovation was unique. It’s first impression was memorable as immediately after entering the front door, just past the dining table, there was a tree growing in the middle of home! Upon further inspection of the space it became apparent that this home had undergone several alterations during its lifetime. Especially in the atrium, there was exterior siding, stucco, dirt floor, exterior light fixtures, and openings. Clearly the previous owners had added a roof over an exterior courtyard to capture the space for interior use. Removing the dirt floors and spider webs was a very high priority for these clients.

A home should reflect its inhabitants. It seems that home design is becoming more and more impersonal – clients want their home to look like the images they see online or in magazines, but maybe that isn’t the best objective when it comes to design? We feel that a home should be a collection of the possessions our clients love, and a true reflection of their personality – quirks and all. The owners of this project were some of the most fun, bubbly and jocular clients we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, and their home shows it.

We are excited to invite you to the 25th Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association’s Parade of Homes! This annual event showcases an exclusive collection of professionally custom-built and renovated homes in Metro Vancouver. This year My House Design/Build Team has 3 homes on the parade located in North Vancouver, Port Moody, and Surrey. These homes showcase the breadth of style and size of the projects we do. If you’re considering a renovation or new home we encourage you to visit our parade locations to view our craftsmanship up close and to meet our team. We hope to see you there!
Historical elements mimicking the look of old estate homes was the major driving force behind the design of Georgian Grandeur, a new build in Surrey. With its symmetrical styling, brick façade and square shape, this home resembles a stately manor from yesteryear. But inside it has all the modern conveniences of today.
For the first time, the gala was held at Parq Vancouver, the new luxury hotel and casino beside BC Place. The event was first class and the design of the hotel added an ambiance that can't be matched. Our team was incredibly honoured to be finalists in seven categories, including Residential Renovator of the Year. We're already looking forward to next year's gala!
