Day 24 Fresh Reno Ottawa renovation contractor Restoration Hardware St James vanity 3-2

This week we start a two-bathroom renovation in Manotick for Rogers and Margaret, and their daughter Jane. Don’t worry, their house has five bathrooms.

The family has just moved to Ottawa from Toronto and we met through our incredible wedding photographer, Liz Bradley. Thank you for recommending Fresh Reno!

Margaret and Roger (current clients) kindly took Heather and me to lunch before the renovation started. Margaret and Heather immediately bonded over all things gardening and decorating, and I have since become their courrier—bringing plants and magazines back and forth.  This time Heather is sending a chunk of winter-hardy Prickly Pear cactus to Margaret. Yup, this cactus lives outdoors all year round.
