Online Platform Makes It Easy For Homeowners To Enjoy Comfortable, Sustainable Homes

Most people don’t own homes just to turn them over for a quick profit. In fact, according to Realtor magazine, home ownership tenure is at its highest level in 18 years. What we do want from our homes is comfort, security; we want to feel good in our own private spaces.

Like many new parents, when Matt Daigle and his wife Mallory Lennon of New Brunswick, Canada, had their first child, their idea of home changed. “We bought a 2,200-square-foot mid-century fixer upper. And it was basically a race against time… to get the house done for our first kid. [W]e were able to do that in April 2014 about a month after our first daughter was born.”

During the renovation, the couple replaced old windows with Energy Star double panes, removed wood cladding and sided with vinyl and a fiber cement product; they added insulation, and except for reconfiguring the kitchen layout, they did a mostly cosmetic interior remodel that included new cabinets made of particle board faced with wood, a quartz counter and butcher block island.
