  • As phase 2 of this relationship, our homeowner wanted to update the garden apartment on the property in order to provide additional income in his retirement years. The apartment was updated from a 3 room apartment with no storage to a modern "loft-style" apartment with plenty of storage for the tenant. An exterior patio built solely for the tenant allowed both interior and exterior spaces dedicated to the tenant.
