Project: Hanson Heritage Barn
Location: Kitchener, Ontario
Sector: Residential
Contract Type: Fixed Price

PROJECT OVERVIEW:

This unique project is located close to Parks Canada's Historic Pioneer Park Memorial Tower, and backs on to the beautiful Pioneer Tower Natural Area. Our client selected Frey Building Contractors to transform a Heritage designated barn into a stunning residential apartment. Obtaining a building permit for the project was very challenging for our client, as it required both a minor variance and approval from Kitchener's Heritage Committee. Working closely with our client on the design and materials selections, we transformed the old and run down barn into a guest residence with modern amenities and updates, combined with an inviting rural character. Some of the features of this one-of-a-kind project include repointed original stone foundation, board and batten siding, a glass wall opening on to a raised deck, custom made interior & exterior doors, a loft bedroom and post and beam features.
