renovation overview

RENOVATION TYPE: This guest bathroom was created from a unused space on the secondary story of a home.

LOCATION: The home is located in the Effingham area of Pelham, Ontario, characterized by its serene rural landscape and agricultural charm. Rolling fields of crops and pastures dotted with historic farmhouses define the area. 

MAIN CHALLENGES: In this historic home, accommodating the needs of a growing family presented a significant challenge due to the lack of bathrooms. The spacious second floor held untapped potential, prompting the homeowners to optimize its use by incorporating a new bathroom, addressing the family’s evolving requirements with efficiency and practicality.

RENOVATION COST:  Bathroom projects such as these can cost around $30,000 – $35,000 to complete.


“We recently hired Eden Build to add a bathroom to the second floor of our home. From our initial inquiry through to the end of the project, Craig, Matt, and Corbin were an absolute pleasure to work with. We were impressed with their open communication, professionalism, and ability to keep our project on schedule with minimal delays. They were flexible – working around our schedule and accommodating our last minute requests/changes. We’re thrilled with the final result! We’d not only rehire them, but we’d highly recommend them to any homeowner looking for a general contractor. Thanks for all your hard work, Eden Build!”
