Here is a unique tour presented by Vancouver Heritage Foundation:
Vancouver Special House Tour
Saturday, April 26th
1pm - 5pm
See how this uniquely Vancouver style is being reinvented with an inside look at 5 renovated Vancouver Specials.
Few modifications had been made to this Joe Wai Special until the recent renovation that began in 2011. New flooring, enlarged windows at the front, and the removal of a centre wall on the main floor modernized the home while maintaining its character. The homeowners' 1970s spindle chairs are a perfect fit to the homes' vintage.
The unfinished basement, where the owners lived during the renovation, now houses a family room, full bathroom and laundry and enjoys added light from new windows. Join us on April 26th to get a first hand look at the beautiful renovations that will ensure this piece of Strathcona history is retained.
