Logan Home Renovation

Woodsmith Construction Project Journal: The Transformation of a Logan Ave Home

The Logan Ave renovation project is a testament to the transformative power of thoughtful design and meticulous execution. What commenced as a straightforward third-floor renovation unfolded into a comprehensive update, breathing new life into the entire home. This case study showcases the process and offers valuable insights for those contemplating their home renovation journey.


Elevating Living Spaces: The Third Floor Redesign

The challenge began on the third floor, with ambitions to convert it into a serene primary suite—a haven for the homeowners. Renovating third-floor spaces in Toronto homes requires a delicate balance between ambition and practicality, particularly when preserving the integrity of the floors below. Our approach involved a complete overhaul, ensuring every inch of space was optimized for comfort and style, from custom walk-in closets to a luxurious en-suite bathroom.

Elements like skylights or large windows can significantly enhance these attic conversions, inviting natural light and offering neighbourhood views. Resources like Houzz provide endless inspiration for creating personal retreats within your home.


Party Wall Innovations: Enhancing Privacy and Comfort

A notable aspect of this renovation was the attention to the semi-detached home’s party wall. Initially not a focus, the renovation’s scope expanded to include soundproofing measures, addressing the privacy concerns common in semi-detached and row housing. Introducing sound batts and soundproof boards resulted in a remarkable improvement in acoustic privacy, transforming our clients and their neighbour’s living experience.

Understanding the benefits of soundproofing can be crucial for homeowners in similar situations. Websites like Soundproof Cow offer a wealth of information on soundproofing materials and techniques, guiding those seeking a quieter home environment.
