Project Details

Located in Meaford, Ontario, a former school house was transformed into a single-family dwelling. The existing school house consisted of stone exterior walls, a wood framed ground floor and hand framed wood roof trusses.
The extent of the renovation included:

  • Addition of a partial second floor in the existing roof area;
  • Revision of the existing roof framing at the new second floor;
  • Addition of openings in the existing stone exterior walls;
  • Raising of half the ground floor, leveling it with new framing; and
  • A one-storey addition to the rear of the house supported on two columns.

This project is a great example of adapting an existing building for a new use while maintaining the essence of the original building.
