Each renovation is covered, with important considerations about resale value, the extent of the work and planning, and timing the job(s).
In addition to adding the living and storage space, adding rooms with features home buyers are looking for can increase the resale value of your home. Adding a basement or room above the garage as a secondary suite, for in-laws or tenants, is a popular way to leverage the functionality of a property.
These detached secondary homes often serve as home offices, secondary suites, rental apartments, garages or guest houses… and they’ve become increasingly popular in Greater Vancouver and the Sea to Sky Corridor.
Retrofits make homes more comfortable, healthy and efficient. Living better also saves energy and reduces GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions.
Passive House goes beyond Step Code 5, with the target of being 90% more efficient than specified by the BC Building Code. The Passive-Haus Institut has also developed the “EnerPHit – Quality-Approved Energy Retrofit with Passive House Components” Certificate program, for many older homes… this is huge.
A necessary list to review before you start your remodel.
