The 2021 RenoMark Virtual Reno Tour

We are the 3D Tour vendor of choice for the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Assocation. As such, we are tasked every year to digitize several of Ottawa’s best renovations for the RenoMark® Virtual Reno Tour which has gone completely digital this and last year. The RenoMark® Virtual Reno Tour gives consumers the opportunity to view professionally renovated homes across Ottawa, giving them inspiration for their own renovation ideas and connecting them with Ottawa’s best RenoMark® Renovators.

Amsted Design-Build

An underutilized walkout basement was remodeled, incorporating a covered patio, to create an ultimate entertainment space that takes advantage of beautiful waterfront sightlines and offers unrestricted exterior access while adding space for a large media room, guest bedroom, home gym, and kitchenette, mudroom, and sauna area with a NanaWall (a movable glass wall).

This century home was poorly insulated with an inefficient floor plan. It was stripped to the studs and rebuilt with a new floor plan to suit the family’s needs. Along with a new main floor, a 15-foot-high second-story rear addition created a “treehouse” master suite that takes advantage of the backyard tree canopy while being careful not to impact the tree’s roots.

Artium Design Build

This was an extensive, whole-home renovation, with significant structural alterations, multiple bathrooms, a complete kitchen redo, as well as every other room in the home. The house was gutted to the studs and major structural work allowed for the removal of a significant number of walls, creating wonderfully open spaces in what had previously been a chopped up rental property. The design also included fixtures and finishes that brought the home to life in a stunning way, reflecting the homeowners’ personal taste.

RND Construction

Phone Number: 613.523.8298

This project was initially a few changes; a new kitchen, ensuite, and kids’ bathroom and steadily expanded to a whole-home renovation. The home showcases family-friendly, durable and easy-to-clean finishes. Additional storage was added throughout the home, while the aesthetics fit the pop-art-inspired style of the homeowners. The most challenging part of this project was the unexpected water damage from improperly installed windows and vinyl siding. With a little hustle and a lot of care, all damage was removed and the home is now safe and stylish.

Urbacity Design Build

Website: www.ucdb.ca
Phone Number: 613.800.6262
Email: info@ucdb.ca

Inside and out, this home was completely made over, creating a dramatic before-and-after effect. A non-functional rear addition was replaced to allow room for an entertainer’s kitchen that integrates outdoor living into the heart of the home. An angled front entry was also added that, along with new exterior cladding, seriously ups the curb appeal of the home. Walls were removed, creating a bright and open concept main floor. Bedrooms and the main bathroom got an upgrade, as did the home’s energy-efficiency measures. Overall, it was quite the transformation.

The Conscious Builder

An 1860 stone home needed a lot of work and The Conscious Builder was brought in to retrofit it for better efficiency while respecting the home’s heritage. “We thought this was a great opportunity to showcase something a little different than people might be used to seeing,” says The Conscious Builder’s Casey Grey. “A lot of the value in efficient, high-performance home renos go inside the walls, so we decided to do a walls-open tour.”

Carolyn Munro Design Build

Website: www.cmdesignbuild.com
Phone Number: 613.831.9984

It was time to update this kitchen that Carolyn Munro originally designed in the 1990s. The layout suited the homeowners’ needs at the time while raising their family. Now empty nesters, they wanted a change, but one that maintained the traditional style of their home. The layout and the look were changed, but part of the kitchen was reused. “There are other options to installing a brand-new kitchen,” she says, and this project shows how you can do that.

One of the real benefits of going online, beyond making it more comfortable for homeowners to open up their homes, is that the renovations were able to be seen (and still are) online, anytime. Whereas the in-person Reno Tour takes place over a weekend, the RenoMark® Virtual Reno Tour lives online for the whole year or more.

In a typical year, tour organizers expect about 100-200 visitors over the weekend. In the same period of time, the tours had welcomed 1000 online visitors. Since, at the time of writing this blog post, there have been over 5000 visitors to the Ottawa renovations featured in the 2021 Virtual Reno Tour. Some of the renovators are using the 3D Virtual Tours to showcase their work to homeowners.

In Support Of Habitat For Humanity

To further support the Habitat For Humanity charity fundraiser, we scanned both Habitat For Humanity Ottawa Restores at Iber Road and Belfast Road.

Habitat For Humanity Restores are home and building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building materials. Shopping at a Habitat ReStore is a socially conscious decision, as funds generated are used to fund local Habitat for Humanity homebuilding projects.

With the 3D Virtual Tours, the stores are able to showcase what their typical inventory is comprised of. The 3D Virtual Tours are embedded on their websites and are available on Google Maps as a Google Street View Tour. By helping give a look inside the stores, Ottawa Contractors can get a better idea of what they can find at each location before making the trip.

We Support Our Communities With 3D Virtual Tours

Through Random Scans Of Kindness, we support many Ontario Not-For-Profits with digital marketing and facility management tools. If your organization is looking to learn more or are ready to explore the use of 3D Virtual Tours in Ottawa, Montreal or Toronto, contact our team to schedule a meeting.
