A New Entrance

I have a client, from Winnipeg, who has a heritage style house that has been converted to 3 suites. The front stairs to the house needed to be replaced and she hoped the new ones could be more in keeping with the style of the house.

I worked up some designs and emailed them to her, we talked about the choices, she selected a design and I started work. Every other day, as the work proceeded, I would take pictures, point out the extent of the rot, explain what was going to be needed and how I was going to proceed, all by email. When questions came up I would call, explain what was happening so that she was able to see what was at issue and be part of the process. She was very pleased with how the new stairs tied into the house and made the entrance look authentic.
