Built by Garry Foster and Jed Nickel of Reno-Men.ca, this home has high performance elements such as in-floor hydronic heat on demand, is constructed on an insulated pad, and surpasses code insulation requirements. Garry and Jed thoughtfully refined each stage of the design as they built the home, such as the unique central staircase that provides an artistic feature to minimize valuable floor space. Glass railings add to the open ambience. Upstairs, vaulted ceilings with well-placed skylights provide spacious openness. The home is completed with rich finishes, such as light maple floors, quartz counters, a marble fireplace, a custom maple kitchen and designer lighting.
