LIONS BAY SUITE RENO
LiONS BAY, WEST VANCOUVER
This was a fun renovation project where we added a bathroom and laundry room to the basement of this log home in Lions Bay. We had to trench a few paths below the slab for the plumbing which feeds to a pump which is hidden below the floor just outside the bathroom door. We used self leveller to prep the floor and glued a vinyl tile down which runs over the access to the pump so when you lift the access door the tile comes up with it then disappears again once down. We stained knotty pine to match the log homes exterior and trimmed out the entire basement.
Another view of the living room shows all the stained woodwork wrapping doors and beams and baseboard. The entry door was changed from a slider to a French door and was provided by North Shore Door.
The old washer and dryer used to be situated in this area and we turned this into the bathroom. The vanity was painted a really dark, warm blue that worked well with the tile and floor to break up the beiges. We ordered a unique black stone vessel sink from Wayfair that was very unique which worked with the faucet we purchased from Andrew Sheret and really brought the focus of the bathroom to this area.
We tiled the entire main wall in the bathroom and as well as wrapping the shower. In the shower, we installed a niche and used the same pebble mosaic tile that we used in the wet bar to add some character. Black fixtures and hardware was used throughout the project.
This is a cool wet bar concept we built that uses river rock as the backsplash. The vanity was stained to match the rest of the woodwork in the log home and gives it a cozy feeling. We dropped in a round copper sink and wall mounted faucet for a nice clean look which blends the traditional look with some contemporary aspects.
Ah.. the wine cellar. Thanks to @rileyscustomcabinets for the attention to detail on this show piece. This took careful planning to maximize the use of this extra space and transform it into the beautiful home that this wine collection deserves. We decided not only to make the wine racks out of walnut, but to wrap the base and floor with it because the grain was so beautiful. This 300 bottle wine cellar is a great addition to any home.
In the new laundry room we used the stained maple to build the vanity and cabinets wrapping the washer and dryer. The goal was to maximize the space with as mush storage as possible. Pebble river rock was used as the backsplash to continue the theme throughout the house.
