Conversion Complete


 I showed you a pic of construction going on at this site in 2018 (HERE) but didn't get by again for a couple of years when I took this pic in 2020. The building had been a corner store which was changed into residential dwellings. Unfortunately when I saw it there were beige marks all over the black wooden surfaces. I wonder if these were the locations of knots in the wood which had repelled the black stain. I'll show you a recent update tomorrow.

Quite a sympathetic modernisation, though a shame if the smart black cladding doesn't wear well.

They did a great job on this house. It looks very attractive.

This looks like a fine restoration and reimagining of an historic building, perfect for the neighborhood.

Beautiful building. The color is also nice.

Not sure whether I like that black stain or not, but it's certainly an eye-catching conversion job.

With those windows it could almost pass as contemporary construction.

I think they did a tasteful job, Pat.

Nicely done! I was familiar with the neughbourhood between UofT and Casa Loma, even if I don't recognize individual houses, so I enjoy these.

It's quite attractive.

I like it! I really love the black stain with the natural wood. Nice architecture too.
