House & Condo Renovations: from Design to Build

Whether your home renovation means updating, adding on, or creating your “oh-so-indulgent” home spa, it’s your dream and we’d love to help you create it!

Come in – see the Vancouver home renovations we’ve done.

Our Vancouver home renovation work speaks for itself and we’re extremely proud to have our renovation and design projects recognized with top honours at the Canadian Homebuilders’ Association of BC Georgie Awards; the National SAM Awards and the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) OVATION Awards.

maison d’etre is a Vancouver renovations and design company composed of a team of dedicated Vancouver contractors and designers. We strive to produce innovative exterior and interior designs that not only enhance property value and marketability, but more importantly, allow each home to remain liveable and grow with the homeowner’s changing needs while maintaining a sense of individuality.

Since 1995 we’ve built our Vancouver home renovation reputation on the premise that everyone deserves good design – design that’s not only forward-thinking to create a lasting presence, but also design that “fits” your space.
