Originally built in 1912, in the Fraser Heights area of East Vancouver, this house was completely renovated and now boasts a 2-storey living area for the homeowner over a modest, legal, secondary suite. Originally an unfinished basement with dirt floors, the new 2 bedroom suite brings life and affordability to the property. By recessing beams and adding on demand heating, we were able to maintain required ceiling heights for a livable area and gain back some of the space previously taken up by the huge heating appliance. The result: a cozy little 2 bedroom suite and mortgage helper.

I would like to begin this by saying how much we like Pam and are very happy with her work. We are very happy with her work, very comforted by her and her warm personality and with her drive (which makes our lives easier!!). Pam has come up with some great visions and ideas for our old house in East Van and my wife and I are happy we reached out to Pam and Zimba Design.
