The history

The owner is a 73-year-old builder who converted this home, originally a single-storey semi, into a three-storey dwelling. He added lots of new features, including the atrium, tandem parking spots, an oak accent wall in the master bathroom, and lime green I-beams to frame the rear doors.

The dining area is at the front of the house:
