TRANSFORMATIONAL results

WEENENContributed by Kathy Flaxmann
Cabbagetowners are passionate about their neighbourhood and their homes. With many fine examples of Victorian architecture, including mansions, all a stone’s throw from parks and the downtown attractions of Toronto, the area is unique. When a home is renovated to the owners’ precise requirements, the attachment can be very strong.  One Cabbagetown couple, intending to move to a bigger midtown space to accommodate their growing family, opted to stay put after seeing the transformational result of a series of renovations.
“This is a terrific project,” Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting Limited enthuses.  “It’s exciting to see the owners of the property enjoying their ‘new’ home so much.”
The dwelling, about 3000 square feet on three levels is impressive, with 12 foot ceilings in areas where original crown moldings and 10 inch baseboards remain. Lighting and other features are unabashedly modern.  A very large kitchen flowing into a family room is the home’s focal point where kids, parents and guests convene to dine and enjoy each other’s company. Every millimeter of space is used to best advantage and light from floor to ceiling windows/doors floods this space. On view from the upstairs master suite, a green roof tops the garage, long grass and hardy plants forming an ecological design feature.
The owners have come to consider the people who have worked on their home to be like family members.  “Weenen General Contracting Limited has never disappointed,” they state. “Cabbagetown and our home feel very special to us and we’re thrilled to be staying!”
