Diamond Head

Date: 2018
Type: Complete Design and General Contractor for existing home renovation that included a Suit Addition Construction, 2 Pool Houses and a Woodshed Construction
Location: Squamish


Our Diamond Head project was a true design – build – renovate project, encompassing all aspects of what Blue Water Concepts has to offer. We spent the better part of 6 months navigating the local building bylaws and coming up with a design that worked for both our clients and the local building/planning departments. The clients had a long “wish list” and the scope of the project was huge. We were able to take it from permit approval to lock up in exactly one year. The project included a very extensive renovation and addition to the existing house, an overall addition of 450sf of living space. On the bottom floor we added a large private walk out deck and a new en-suite on the upper floor, both of which look out over the new in-ground pool and fully transformed ½ acre lot. For the pool we built two “pool sheds” that would house a mechanical room and storage in one and an optional quiet and detached office retreat in the other. The new addition to the house was connected to a two story carriage house via a 55’ breezeway that provided not only a passage between the house and the new rental suite, but also an immense amount of privacy for the pool and new backyard space. The carriage house was 1900sf with a private garage space on the lower floor and a modern two-bedroom suite on the upper floor. At the rear of the property we built a large 745sf workshop with a storage loft above and access from the rear drive of the lot. All of this, clad in black siding for a sleek and modern finish, along with a new front entrance to the home, landscaping, retaining walls and extensive fencing, made this one of the largest project Blue Water has taken on to date.

There is a better way to build.
