Queen St. East, Downtown Toronto, Ontario

Queen St East Rear Addition, and Interior Renovation.

 

A 2-1/2 storey rear addition, and interior renovations to an existing row house on Queen St East.

 

All the interiors were gutted. New fire rated party walls were constructed.

Reinforcing and replacing of the existing wood frame structure was extensive.

Existing termite damage was dealt with and sprayed for, and treated wood against termites was used at certain spots.

 

A new two storey addition was placed on the back with a new roof deck at the 3rd floor or ˝ storey level.

The deck is accessed by a new stair case that was part of a replacement of all the existing stairs in the house.

 

A skylight/dormer placed at the top level of the new open riser staircase to allow light to pour down into the middle of the house.

 

The street face has new windows revised into small double door “Juilette Balconies” as well as larger double

“french door” version juilette balconies @ the back elevation on the second level.

It also has two new bathrooms and a new kitchen. 

 

 

Close up view of the Queen St. Juliette balconies and new doors where the existing windows used to be.

The stone is artificial, covers and hides old existing brick and a number of old sins on the exterior.
