"It is hard to earn 5 stars, doesn't come without hard work, reliability, sense of humour and a genuine pleasure to work with. Someone who has talent, education, and experience, Susanne designed and managed the construction of a nearly new house ( 80% of the house was rebuilt) for me at whistler. It is 8 stories above the road and complex and she did a wonderful job, I get daily compliments. I recommend her to anyone. I would be pleased to talk to anyone…."



The client’s wish was to add living space and bedrooms to their Whistler Chalet, which served them well while their three boys were growing up. Everybody in the family is an avid skier or snowboarder. Now, all grown, more space was needed for their partners and spouses.

Maintaining the chalet characteristics with exposed beams, the mountain view, and flow of natural light was an important priority.


Extending the kitchen, dining room and living room towards the front yard and a new deck on the upper floor as well as adding 2 additional bedrooms with a bathroom on the lower floor satisfied their needs. Additional maintenance throughout the house, new windows and better insulation gave it a complete new look and comfort.

There were some significant structural issues (see before pictures), which needed serious attention and the biggest challenge for this planned addition was the steep slope as well as accessibility. Fortunately the existing house was on solid bedrock, but everything else was very demanding.

Do you have a question or would you like to work with me?
