Allan and Nasreen were a unique couple with a unique vision for their income property. This home had to check a lot of boxes: not only did it have to be a place for Allan and Nasreen to live, but it also had to function as a reiki studio for Nasreen’s new business. It also had to serve as a place to house international reiki students coming to Canada to study. As first time homeowners and first time business owners, Allan and Nasreen had a lot on their plate. After carefully choosing the perfect property, demolition of the space revealed one of the worst carpenter ant infestations we’ve ever seen and a mechanical room layout issue meant changing the plumbing plans. My job was to help bring the positive energy back to Allan and Nasreen’s income property.
