Muskoka Cottage Drawings
Elevation Drafting and Design has a passion for wood structures, we jumped at the opportunity to work with local craftsman near Burksfalls Ontario to help design and provide full architectural drawings for this timber framed cottage. Working closely with the Structural engineer and the builder, Elevation bridged the gap and pulled this project together allowing for seamless coordination.
Historical Building Roof Replacement & Addition
The requirements of this project where strict as the building was designated as a heritage building, it required design concepts for submission to the zoning and heritage board with the city. Once cleared permit and construction drawings could be completed. Work included removing the existing shed roof and deck structure and building a new shed roof with decorative wood gable dormer. This project greatly increased the curb appeal of the house and still fit in with the historic neighboring buildings. Additionally the new deck structure below was enclosed as a 3 season porch, allowing for merging of the interior and exterior space.
Historical Building Fire Improvements
Another historical building which has been converted to apartments was up for sale, unfortunately the sale could not go through due to the outcome of a fire inspection. Over the years this building faced some degrading in drywall and illegal renovations which the fire inspector and City deemed unsafe. Elevation Drafting & Design was retained to site audit, provide direction and permit drawings for fire improvements to make this building safe. With a strong background in the Ontario Building Code we provided the client with multiple options and assisted with pricing and bid analysis to determine the most cost effective option.
