New Home + Condo Guide |

When I was young, it was a regular occurrence to wake up to the sound of a vacuum cleaner at 8 a.m. and the scent of cleaning fumes burning my sinuses. I would often wait until the bedroom door opened and my mother pegged me with one of her infamous looks to get out of bed because it was time to clean. Over time, her cleaning habits became more relaxed and 8 a.m. on a Saturday morphed into whenever we got to it during the week, if ever. We didn’t live in a dirty house; cleaning just didn’t occupy the same amount of real estate in our minds anymore. When my partner and I bought our house, something clicked in my brain. That earlier memory raced to the forefront with a fervour that would make Martha Stewart squeal with glee: our home deserved a weekly and thorough deep clean. The nod of approval from my Portuguese grandmother when she first surveyed the state of our home gave me an adrenaline rush that equaled riding an epic rollercoaster. I was hooked on the look of deep vacuum lines in our plush carpet and the chemical smell of citrus. I managed to keep this regimen up for months. I had more cleaning products than I knew what to do with, and enough microfibre cloths to start an eBay business. I lived to be validated by the cleaning standards of my wellorganized Avó (grandmother) who gave me her approval with a sweep of her gaze – her eyes lingering on the state of our spotless baseboards that I had spent the better half of a morning scrubbing with a soft bristled brush. This is why I did it, to possess a home that was always visitor-ready and Avó-approved. As all adrenaline junkies can attest to, this rush wasn’t sustainable – and what goes up, must come down. The trouble with any extreme regimen is you eventually find yourself overworked. The housework just never seemed to end. My energy for creative projects took a hit, and whether I wanted to acknowledge it or not – I was using cleaning to procrastinate doing things I knew had a better ROI on my time. It was time to hang up my microfibre cloth. Our house is still clean, but I no longer squawk when the guest room carpets have been maimed by footprints, or fluster at the sight of a single rogue glass in the sink. In my retirement from being the champion of over cleaning, I’ve finally found the time to enjoy homeownership – the polished parts and muddy bits, too.

EDMONTON’S DIFFERENT HOME TYPES by LAURA BOX When we think about homes, we remember the home we grew up in, or the home we currently live in – but what about all the other types of homes that are available? Let’s explore some of the ones you can find in and around Edmonton. Single-family homes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. A popular single-family home type is one that comes with a frontattached garage. With front-attached garage homes, you typically have your main entry and a mudroom off of the garage. This allows for the rest of the first floor to be your main living space – kitchen, dining room, living room and sometimes (depending on the size of the home) a den or home office. This style of home also includes a second, upper floor and a lower level basement for added space. Single-family homes can also come with a rear-detached garage. It is just like the typical two-storey single-family home, but there is a detached garage in 8

November 1–29, 2019

the back of the home that you access via a lane. A bungalow style is a singlefamily home with a front-attached garage and the main living area and bedrooms all on one floor. In many cases, you can also finish the basement to extend your living space. Next, there is the duplex home. This home type has a variety of names depending on where you grew up. I grew up in Ontario, and generally, they call these types of homes ‘semis’ or a ‘half-duplex’. A duplex is two homes side-by-side that are connected with one wall. Duplexes can have either a frontattached garage, rear-detached garage, or even a combination. Townhomes are like duplexes, but they are generally in a group of four or five homes built together in a row and attached on at least one side to a wall with another townhome. Condos can also be very unique and are generally different from the other home types mentioned

above. Typically, you see fourstorey buildings with condo units inside. You own the actual condo unit and the condo community owns anything on the outside of the building, and maintenance of common spaces. People tend to think a condo unit is smaller than a typical single family home, however, they come in all shapes and sizes. Some condo units are even two-storeys. As you can see, every home type is very unique and offers a lot of choices when you’re looking to buy your new home. Feel free to stop by our showhomes. We would be happy to give you a tour through the different home types we have to offer in your desired community.

Morrison Homes

New Showhome in Rosenthal On Saturday, Oct. 5th, Homes by Avi held a showhome grand opening event in the beautiful southwest community of Rosenthal. From 12 p.m.-4 p.m., visitors toured the Avi showhomes and were also provided with the unique opportunity to engage with industry experts for information about the federal first-time homebuyer incentive that launched in September. To help with the homebuying process, an interior designer and an expert discussing Avi’s free realtor listing program were on hand.

Throughout the day, guests enjoyed seasonal treats like pumpkin spice lattes, delicious pastries, and a candy bar for the kids. Avi had five showhomes on display for the event – each offering a different home style and price point for homebuyers to explore. If visitors toured all five showhomes, they received a free carving pumpkin, plus a chance to win a pair of Oilers tickets or 4 tickets to the Edmonton Corn Maze!

PROPERTY PROFILE

FALCON ONE Langham Developments’ newest luxury condominium development, Falcon One, is slated to become an iconic landmark in downtown Edmonton. With five successful projects in the downtown core, the awardwinning developer was one of the first builders to transform 104th Street. Today, Reza Mostashari, Langham Developments’ president and visionary, is set to once again alter 104th Street, south of Jasper Avenue, with a visually stunning 38-storey glass and concrete tower, which will unmistakably stand out against the downtown Edmonton skyline. “With each building I want to add to the aesthetics of the area, to enhance the neighbourhood’s urbanization,” says Mostashari, a resident Edmontonian passionate about his city. “Falcon One encompasses the best attributes of my other projects, as well as the best location, best finishes and best price points.” 12

This downtown core is fast becoming known as one of the most exciting regions in the city. The new ICE District Entertainment Area containing Rogers Place, several of the most touted restaurants, vibrant night life, City Centre Shopping, MacEwan Universtiy, and the Bay Enterprise Square LRT station (providing quick access to University of Alberta), are all within easy walking distance of the new Falcon One. As soon as you enter through the sophisticated double height marble lobby, showcased by dramatic, eye-catching marble and wood features cascading from the ceiling, you instantly know you are in for timeless elegance and sophistication throughout. Falcon One, which is the first of Falcon Tower’s two phases, is a collection of 296 condos featuring modern interiors

expertly designed to create spaces that are both comfortable and beautifully appointed. In keeping with Langham Developments renowned reputation for superior craftsmanship and luxury finishes, you can rest assured that the quality and beauty of the finishes in these upscale one to threebedroom residences will rival the best the city has to offer. Whether classic or trend-setting, the interiors at Falcon One have been precisely curated to lend the perfect backdrop to your own taste. Open floorplans are bright and inviting, with luxury wood vinyl plank flooring and contemporary porcelain tile inspired by white marble, concrete, and encaustic cement textures. Kitchens are inviting and airy, with sleek cabinetry, premium quartz countertops, and islands with sinks, perfect for entertaining. Entirely wrapped in balconies, Falcon One’s spacious outdoor areas offer its residents sweeping views of Edmonton’s North Saskatchewan River Valley, the Walterdale Bridge, Re/Max Field, the Alberta Legislature grounds, and the Downtown skyline. As Edmonton’s premier builder, Langham Developments’ exacting standards and passion for constructing eyecatching buildings, as well as its commitment for timeless interiors, has cemented its reputation as a builder of superior residences. When people buy into any of Langham Developments’ soaring towers, they can feel confident that they are dealing with a builder that’s deeply rooted in the very fabric of this city’s history. With prices starting from just $245,000, Falcon One is sure to sell out fast.

Falcon One presentation centre is currently available by appointment only. To book a viewing, call 780-425-0369 or visit falcontowers.ca.

Ground up!

by ALEEM KASSAM AND PHYLLIS LUI, PRINCIPAL DESIGNERS AT KALU INTERIORS

Kalu Interiors gives expert advice on how to redesign your basement

F

rom a designer’s point of view, basements (or lower levels as we prefer to call them) can be tricky to redesign. However, that was not the case with this project. With soaring nine-ft. ceilings, window/light wells and French doors leading out to the backyard, this space provided us with tons of untapped potential – a designer’s dream! Our task was to double the usable footprint of the home, to meet the homeowners’ dayto-day demands, while being equipped to house overnight guests in comfort and style. This space took on a hotel-chic vibe, with a clean aesthetic, neutral finishes and some indulgent features, too. The client’s wish list for this area was long, and included a home gym, pool table, bar, library, a secondary kitchen, a home theatre, a guest bedroom, two guest bathrooms, a laundry room and last but certainly not least, storage areas!

16

New Home + Condo Guide |

November 1–29, 2019


A tall order, but nothing Kalu couldn’t handle. For each person, the wish list is different, depending on their lifestyle. What are you currently missing in your home? Once you know what you want, convert that “lower level” into an area that is useful for your lifestyle. The problem with many lower levels is that they’re dark because they are underground with limited light. So, the first step is to brighten things up. Now, resist the urge to paint the walls a bright yellow hue and calling it a day. Find out where the natural light is coming from and amplify it. Artificial lighting is one way, via recessed lighting, light fixtures, sconces and so-forth. But the finishes you choose for the space will also impact its light level. Generally speaking, opt for lighter, brighter and airier colours and glossy/reflective finishes to brighten up a room. Incorporating mirrors into the space will visually double its size and bounce light throughout.

All too often, lower levels become an afterthought. Remember, every square foot in your home is valuable. If you can make your lower level just as valuable as the main level, then you’re not only increasing the livable space, but its resale value, too. To create a harmonious, connected home, show consistency between floors with common elements such as flooring, paint colours, or similar accents in trims, mouldings, cabinets or counters. Show your lower level some love by thinking of it as an extension of the home, rather than a far-off place and a future dumping ground.

NEWBIE NOTES

WE BOUGHT A NEWCONSTRUCTION HOME WOULD WE DO IT AGAIN? by AMANDA PEREIRA There is something surreal about watching your home come to life as it is built from the ground up. Buying a brand-new home is a unique experience – you enter the sales office and explore different floorplans, colour palettes, and begin to dream of the possibilities that come with living in your new community. If there is one immediate gripe with a new construction compared to a resale home, it’s 20

November 1–29, 2019

the waiting game. Builders and developers do their best to get the home to you in time for first closing, but that’s often not the case; various factors like labour or material shortages are often out of their control. Patience is admittedly not my strongest characteristic, and waiting was the hardest part. Of course, on the other side of the coin, there were benefits to this. As first-time homebuyers, we had nothing

to fill our home with – from the basic essentials like cutlery, right down to the we’ve-never-hadto-think-about-this-before items like a lawnmower. The year and a half gave us the opportunity to not only save our money, but also buy things at our leisure and often at a discounted price. Now that it’s been a year, we often get asked if we would do it again. Well, that all depends on when you would have asked us.


After we closed on our home in November of 2018, during the first couple of weeks, I had frequent tightening sensations in my chest. I was beyond stressed. We were still missing a bathroom counter upstairs, we had a gaping hole where our toilet’s plumbing met the wall, pickets were missing from the handrail on the stairs, and frankly, nothing quite looked like how we imagined. Thanks to the flippancy and lack of firm repair dates from our builder, I swore to anyone who would listen that I would never do this again. Now, almost 12 months later,

these issues seem so subjective and downright silly to worry about. When you’ve invested into your home and found the craftsmanship to be less than stellar, it can bring on a whole host of emotions, anxiety included. You’re plagued with thoughts of when will they fix it? Will they fix it? What if they don’t? And worse: what if the repairs are worse than before? We learned quickly that communicating calmly with our site supervisor yielded the best results. Before we knew it, the missing counters were installed, the fistsized hole in the bathroom was patched and painted over, and

the missing pickets were installed. They’ve completed the rest of the deficiencies and laid down our sod, and well, it’s made our house look like a home. So, the question remains: Would we do it all over again? Maybe. If we were to buy new again, I think we’d be better emotionally equipped to manage our expectations and be mentally prepared for how long it may take for the deficiencies in the house to match the vision we had of our completed new home. Buying new requires a certain level of patience – but nothing beats that new house smell. nexthome.ca 21

HOW TO AVOID COSTLY MISTAKES WHEN BUYING A NEW BUILD by MICHELLE HOPKINS

Who doesn’t love a brand-new home; a house that no one has ever lived in before? Your dream home, a fresh, clean slate with nary a fingerprint on the walls. Sometimes, though, you get so caught up in the excitement of buying that new home, you might gloss over key details that could cost you money. So says Patrick Francey, CEO of the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN). “Your best defense against making costly mistakes is due diligence… be excited about your new construction, but don’t be so swept up in the emotions,” Francey says. “Do your research, take 24

the time it takes so in the end, it takes less time and less stress.” HERE ARE FRANCEY’S TOP SEVEN COSTLY MISTAKES TO AVOID: 1. Not choosing a qualified real estate agent and mortgage broker who specialize in new builds

You want to hire those who work exclusively with a developer or are well versed in new builds. The best source for finding a specialized realtor/mortgage broker is referrals. Then, don’t be afraid to ask them questions about their experience.

5. Not understanding the builder’s warranties

satisfactory review” written in the documents filed by a lawyer. Also, read the contract so you know exactly what is included in the price … is landscaping included? What about light fixtures? 2. Not vetting the builder

Not all builders are created equal. If you have never bought a new build before, one of the first things is to check the builder’s credentials: How long he/she has been in business, are there complaints against them, do they owe money to their trades people? If he is legitimate, he will be happy to provide references. Then call past clients who can vouch for them. Never sign a contract until you have checked the builder out. 3. Making an offer without conditions clearly stated in the legal documents

For example, never buy a home without first having a “subject to finance” and “subject to

Every province has newhome warranties but what about your builder’s warranties? This also goes back to references and referrals. You must ask the builder what warranties he offers. Builders sometimes offer an “express” warranty, which has more precise wording on what is covered, and cut-off times for varying parts of a new build. A builder’s warranty spells out the remedies a builder is responsible for if there are any issues during or after the build, as well as the duration of the warranty and a mechanism for disputing issues.

4. Not being clear on what upgrades are included in the price

6. Unsure about financing rules

Some people think that if they buy the show home, they get every upgrade included in the price. Unless it’s clearly stated and in written form by the builder, you need to ask. People get a surprise when changes they’ve asked for come with a cost. Maybe in the middle of the build, you’ve decided you want to change the paint colours or you want better quality or more a powerful electrical supply. All of a sudden, you have added $1,000 more to the cost of your new home. Unless the builder stipulates in writing that the upgrades will be done without incurring a cost, assume you will be charged.

When you have a house built, you need to know in advance what your financing obligations are. What if through the course of the build, a new stress test is applied or interest rates go up? Or what advances are required and when? Ask! 7. Move-in date delays

Delays happen and that’s why you want a lawyer involved to spell out terms in the agreement about what the builder is prepared to pay for and what you are prepared to accept, like a hotel room(s) if you have to be out of your home, and moving charges. nexthome.ca 25

ADVICE | MONEY MATTERS

HOLIDAY SHOPPING WITHOUT THE FINANCIAL

HANGOVER If you want to have a happy holiday that doesn’t leave you holding your aching head when the bills roll in come January, you have to start planning early. The longer you wait, the more you’re prone to give in to stress, make impulse purchases, blow your budget or even buy a lame gift.

GAIL VAZ-OXLADE

New Home + Condo Guide |

November 1–29, 2019

Look at your holiday spending as you would any other big-ticket item. While you’re splitting the cost among a variety of expenses, the bottom line is still the same – you’re spending a lot of money in a short period of time. In the best of all worlds, you would have started saving


List the people you plan to shop for under the gift category, then divide up your budget accordingly. Limit your budget to what you can afford right now and avoid a financial hangover in the New Year.

for your holiday spending in January. Yup, you would have made it a budget item and set aside $10, $50, $150 a month so when the season rolled ‘round, you’d be ready. After all, it’s way easier to set aside $100 a month than to come up with $1,200 all at once. This is how I do it, and come October, I start keeping my eyes open for “deals� on things I know my friends and family will love. Failing that, start here, with Gail’s Holiday Spending Plan:

Write down the amount you want to spend in each category of holiday expenses. Gifts are only the beginning – don’t forget to account for travel costs, postage and shipping, decorating, greeting cards, entertainment and photos. List the people you plan to shop for under the gift category, then divide up your budget accordingly. Limit your budget to what you can afford right now and avoid a financial hangover in the New Year. If you spend $500 on a credit card at 18 per cent interest, and pay the

minimum each month, it’ll take you seven years – and cost $365 in interest – to pay it off. Consider setting a dollar limit on gifts or drawing names among extended family, roommates or co-workers. Jot down any gift ideas that you might have for the people on your list. Comparison-shop online before heading to the store. (Don’t forget to include shipping costs in your calculations if you decide to buy online.) A dash of planning and dab of creativity can also help you keep your entertainment costs under control: Ĺ”*OWJUFHVFTUTUPCSJOHTPNFUIJOH to share at a potluck dinner. Ĺ”4FSWFCSVODI UISPXBGJOHFS food party or host a wine and cheese tasting instead of a fullblown turkey dinner. Ĺ”$PIPTUBQBSUZXJUIBQBMPS sibling, and share the cost. Ĺ”.BLFTVSFZPVTFUBEPMMBSMJNJU for your soirĂŠe. And list the items, ingredients and dĂŠcor you’ll need and how much each will cost. Remember, the best gifts don’t have to cost money. If you’re financially challenged this year, offer up your time babysitting, cooking meals, house cleaning, massaging, sewing, knitting, transporting, or whatever else you’re good at. Clip a picture of the service you’ll provide and be clear on how often, as in “I’ll babysit one weekend a month from February to June.â€? Or better yet, make your own coupon book. There now, you don’t have to worry about starting the New Year with a financial hangover. Happy Ho Ho Ho!

This go-to neutral pairs perfectly with every shade, but don’t underestimate its power to stand alone. Why is it so hard to design with white? It can go very wrong when not paired appropriately with enough weight, texture and balance to help make it work without feeling cold and dull.

My paint choices for whites are (in no order of preference):

6

General Paint: Mistaya CLW-1042 (for a pure crisp white) Benjamin Moore: Decorator White CC-20 (gray undertone) Pure White OC-64 (more gray) Pair these two grays together to get a very sophisticated, soft gray palette Cloud White CC-40 (butter yellow undertone) Lancaster Whitewash HC-174 (wheat undertone) Pair these two together to get that soft, country French feel. Paired with black French furniture is absolutely spectacular!

I will always give you a wall colour that goes beautifully with your white. It’s very important to have that tone-on-tone for a more sophisticated paint ɰƺȃljȴljӝŽǹʰɁʍԇɨljǹljljȢȈȶǼǁƃɨȈȶǼӗʍɰljɽȃljɰƃȴljʥȃȈɽljӗƹʍɽƺȃƃȶǼljɽȃljˎȶȈɰȃ – matte, satin, cashmere, or eggshell. These subtle changes can have the biggest impact in a tone-on-tone scheme. Good luck with your white rooms!

love designing bedrooms. They come in all shapes and sizes, so a cookie-cutter approach doesn’t work, especially when the space is small Designer Jo or awkward. For this Alcorn creates a bedroom, I was met with charming girl’s a host of challenges. I had bedroom in a to come up with a unique small space. sleeping arrangement and lots of storage for three little girls in one small room. Fitting three girls into a small space certainly made sleeping a challenge. My only option was bunk beds. With tight space restrictions, I had to have custom beds created. To have them fit into this small, square room, I turned the hinges on the bedroom door so that it would open in the other direction. Then and most importantly, to keep the I built in a wall, creating a pseudo noise down. hallway inside the room. That wall For room accessories, I looked was able to serve as a headboard, and I mounted the bed ladder right to Wayfair.ca for some great finds. I added their geo-shaped on the wall, making use of every wallpaper to create a feature wall. square inch of space. I also used their stylish blackI embedded drawers on out blinds in all white; its soft, wheels under the bed and cascading design made the space added an open shelving area for seem larger and airy. I accented additional storage. the room with light colours We also tucked a window seat through a patterned rug and the into the wall and surrounded it polka-dot sheets – which keeps with storage, too.

I cannot stress enough the importance of “washable” with little ones! Finally, I added some pink velvet pillows (also washable), and a black and white throw blanket to balance off the wallpaper at the end of the bed. The artwork is another source of colour and pattern. By enlarging and hanging cute family photos, it added personality and a sense of belonging for the kids. A fulllength mirror at the end of the hall is functional and created a runway for playtime. There was enough floor space for the girls to get out their doll houses and other toys, and still have room for everyone to enjoy whatever they were doing at any time. The biggest lesson to learn from this makeover is that sometimes you have to think outside of the box – literally! If I had stayed with the square room as it began, it wouldn’t have the wonderful personality and function it has now.

ADVICE | GET ORGANIZED

STORAGE WITH STYLE by MICHELLE HOPKINS

JUDSON BEAUMONT has made a career out of challenging our preconceived notions of what storage should look like. The artist and founder of Straight Line Designs Inc. proves that storage doesn’t have to be boring to be functional. “I think of storage and ask, ‘Why does everything have to look the same?’” says the graduate of the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. “I want furniture to have personality, yet still be very functional. I want people to question why storage should be traditional looking.” Today’s storage solutions certainly don’t have to be drab, says Theresa Thom, franchise director, Stor-X Organizing Solutions. More importantly, homeowners don’t realize how many unused areas can easily be transformed into innovative storage spaces. For example, the small closet at the front door is often a landmine of clutter. “You can pull that door right off and create a mudroom, complete with bench, shelves, a couple of drawers and hooks,” says Thom. “Now that awkward closet is a much more functional one.” Wolf Nickel, president and founder of Stor-X adds: “There is also so much wasted space in laundry rooms. You can make the laundry room so much more efficient by adding a built-in folding table with hanging space, as well as shelving for brooms, mops and laundry supplies.” Before placing your belongings in a chest of drawers or curios in a

cabinet, Heather Knitel, the owner of Good Riddance Professional Organization Solutions, says, “Envision your space and how you would like it to look.” This is not only good advice for storage, but it’s a great opportunity to de-clutter. Knitel suggests systematically going from room to room. Everything should get pulled out of drawers, cupboards and countertops and sorted into three piles — donate, trash, keep. “Eliminate what you aren’t using,” says Knitel. “But stay very focused on the task at hand, meaning don’t go zigzagging. Stay in the room until it is done.” Many of us hoard magazines, books and newspapers. Recycle those old newspapers. Then, purge

yourself of those magazines and books by giving them to a hospital or other charitable organization that could put them to good use.

Clothing “Eighty per cent of the time, we wear only 20 per cent of our wardrobe,” says Knitel. When it comes to clothing, a good rule of thumb is, if you haven’t worn it for six months or for a season, get rid of it. “Most of us have to change the way we think. We tend to hold onto things way too long for emotional reasons,” says Knitel. “For example, that sweater grandma gave you five years ago that you have never worn … place it in the charity bin.”
