Happy New Year!

Sarah and Rob live in a beautiful old home in the Glebe. During the next three weeks we’re renovating their bathroom and making it bigger by taking three feet of space from the adjacent guest room.

Thanks so much to previous clients Ted and Jacqueline (for whom we did this kitchen reno and this bathroom reno) for recommending Fresh Reno Ottawa to Sarah and Rob.

Day 6: With framing and plumbing done, and the spray insulation installed, we just had our first inspection from the city. Passed with flying colours as usual. We have a 100% pass rate.

Day 10. Tiles are going up in the bathroom. All walls are getting tiled top to bottom. No paint, just wall tiles all around. It's looking fantastic.
