Rare gem heritage houses are being preserved in New Westminster
Like restoring a classic car, this is a labour of love and financing. New West’s Queen’s Park neighbourhood has long been recognized as a special community in the lower mainland. Beautiful craftsman homes have been well kept in many cases and in others, some homes need a refresh to bring them in line with the needs of families today.
To strike a balance, the city of New West may offer incentives to home owners who save one of these vintage houses and still incorporate modern products and engineering. This video is one example of a product that I saw come available a couple of years ago and thought was a great idea. Here’s how it is being put to use to revitalize a classic home in New West.
