Tamlin’s in-law suite in Burnaby is progressing on schedule. The sunny spring weather is allowing the exterior work to be completed.
The owner wanted a mixed western red cedar sidewall shingle and no-maintenance stucco combination. The exterior work also involved installing a gable end timber truss to the exterior of the home. Tamlin pre-stained all wood accents and exterior finishes at the factory to allow for fast installation and the best durability. Two skylights were installed over the east kitchen area to soak up the morning sunshine.
All of the exterior upgrades to perimeter drainage, sanitary and storm have been completed and extra “catch” basins were positioned to handle Burnaby’s rainy season — this was all tied into drainage upgrades to the main residence. This extra work will certainly pay off to allow proper rain water management.
