The DeFoort Home

SK2 Transformed the Worst Part of My Life into one of the Happiest
1232 sqft

Brandon found himself in a unique situation - his house had just burnt down (he was ok!), and he couldn't find a builder to work with to rebuild the 100+ year old home he'd worked so hard at renovating. To be honest, we don't love dealing with insurance work, but we saw this as an opportunity to help someone in need!

The Perfect Floorplan

The wish list consisted of: large master bedroom, master bathroom with a shower and spacious walk in closet, a grand area for entertaining, and a big island. We were able to squeeze all of that into an economical footprint, and managed to find room in the budget for some beautiful finishes.

A Luxurious Bathroom for Guests!

The guest bath was something that needed to have a special touch. We found a unique wall tile, a grand soaker tub, and found room for a big window to let in the natural light from the West exposure.

A Space for Entertaining

The main living area was meant to be spacious, with a large kitchen, angled island with bar seating, and an open concept.

An Inviting Entry!

A welcoming entry was important, but we didn't want to close off the living area. A half wall around the staircase kept things open, and the living room invites you to come in for a visit!

Farmhouse Sink

With a country farmhouse style, how could we not install a nice apron sink! A classic subway tile backsplash was the finishing touch!

Bringing the Outside In!

What's better than natural light? This minimalistic bathroom featured a nice simple shower, a modest vanity, a window to the back yard, and direct access to the walk in closet! Simple, functional, practical and easy to clean!

A Covered Porch with Country Charm

What small town home would be complete without a nice little covered porch? Featuring a simple black railing, the maintenance free fir coloured siding contrasts nicely. Black windows, soffit and fascia blend in nicely and highlight the lighter entry area.

SK2 transformed the worst part of my life into one of the happiest!

My home burned down a few years ago. This was the lowest part of my life, losing all my possessions and the home being a complete loss.

SK2 was there during my most vulnerable time. They take a collaborative approach, which makes you feel valued every step of the process. SK2 invests in you beyond just being a customer, they want to get to know you and your story in order to make your dream home possible. They were excited to hear my ideas and welcomed my designs. You won't get a cookie cutter house from SK2. They want to see your personality in the space. You can expect high communication, pristine quality, and a kick ass team from SK2.

By the end, you will feel part of the SK2 family. Thank you SK2!
