Commercial Technologies In Residential Homes


More and more commercial products are making it into residential homes and are changing the way consumers looking at building new or renovating homes.

 Due to a growing number of homeowners working from home, workplace products and technologies are being used in residential construction. Commercial spaces, rental prices, and long commutes, have made working from home more attractive.  We recently finished a project building a recording studio in a residential new inner-city home.

Urban Infills - How to Take Advantage of a Small Lot


As the cost of urban land rises and the space available for development is shrinking, building a new home in the city is becoming more of a challenge than ever before. However, there is still a great deal of opportunity for building a comfortable infill within the Calgary area.  By applying the skills and innovative design solutions, it is possible to build a modern and functional infill that reduces urban sprawl, the resource consumption and yields excellent rewards for the homeowner.

Here are some great examples of urban infills that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional:

6 Tips for Stress-Free Home Renovations: on Time, in Budget and The Way You Wanted


Renovation can be very stressful. It's not like the television shows - they are dirtier, harder and more difficult than any close-up can capture. It doesn't matter if you live in an apartment and need to repaint the kitchen or if you live in a mansion and need to rebuild the entire house, you can just about guarantee that the things you haven't anticipated will go wrong, the budget will blow out and you'll want to shout at someone. Here are some practical tips to get your renovation done well, stress-free, on budget and exactly how you wanted.

In Harmony Home Projects, we believe it is possible to have a stress-free and enjoyable renovation experience. We achieve this by making it our priority to work closely with our clients to ensure they have a great experience working with us.

Here are some practical Tips For Stress-Free Home Renovation Projects:

1.   Know What you Want:

Take time to plan your renovation project by documenting your ideas, establishing renovation priorities.  Find a renovation company/contractor and a designer or ideally a design- build Renovation Company that offers both services.

2.     Design and Plan:

Working with a renovation company /contractor and a designer develop schematic design (this usually involves a rough layout of the floor plan and some simple views of the interior / exterior) and ideally preliminary material selections. If the project is or the homeowners want additional changes made to the schematics, this initial design phase can take several weeks or or even months.

3.     Establish Budget and Finances:

Once a final schematic design has been completed, the renovation company / contractor will develop a preliminary estimate of cost. If a design / build firm develops the preliminary design the estimating will take less time. To be safe, set aside 10-15 per cent of your budget as a reserve portion to cover any surprises.


4.     Select Contractor and Begin Construction:

Work with a company you trust. Above all, trust is key. Working with a company that you trust and that have a proven track record will reduce your stress level. Because you can’t see the finished product before signing on the dotted line, a great deal of trust is required. It’s also important to know that your contractor will be there throughout the process to help reduce any anxiety you may have.


5. Stay Involved and Communicate with Your Team:

Keep yourself involved by attending all of the available construction meetings so you can know what to expect during major construction milestones. During the entire process, keep the communication lines open. That’s why at Harmony Home Projects we stay in close contact with our clients every step of the way. This ensures the client’s vision is being created and everything is going smoothly – for everybody involved.

6.     Embrace Your Emotions and Relax:

If you feel yourself getting stressed out, find a way to solve any important issues and get rid of stress – for example, talk to your contractor if you aren’t happy with a choice that have been made. Then try to let things go. Take a break – leave the Reno site and do something to de-stress. Remember this is a creative project. Have fun being involved in the process and watching your home get built. It may be a big event to deal with right now, but the result will be your dream home, your vision brought to life.
