What We Do

Revision Built is a company that specializes in designing and building whole home renovations and new additions. After building various projects, we’ve discovered that we love working on mid-century homes. Our team is passionate about transforming these older homes to make your living space safe, comfortable, stylish, and efficient.

Why We Do It

The problem is that houses built in the mid-1900s were limited to available materials, and energy conservation wasn’t a thing then. Owners of these houses tell us the same thing – they hate how their home is tired, cold, and drafty, has a bad layout, etc., and want us to fix it for them. The house was designed and built when modern building methods were first introduced, so the quality of your structure (the bones) is solid, and you love the neighborhood, so you want to stay put. We think that renovating these houses is impactful and essential. That’s why we do it.

How We Do It

Our approach maintains the mid-century design ethic with a modern take. We care about making your space more livable while preserving the integrity of the original design, removing the things you hate, and replacing them with things you love. You can see examples on our Gallery page.

Your Home Away from Home

Extensive renovations may take months to complete and you need a place to live. Our 5 Star Airbnb is available to you during your whole home renovation. The townhouse is in Riverside South, close to the Rideau River and the Chapman Mills Conservation Area. We are also renovating another property south of Manotick in a serene and private setting, to be available in 2023.

Mid-Century Houses are worth it


The practical and timeless design of mid-century houses is undeniable. We have a lot to work with here.


The original lumber in older homes was of higher quality than today’s fast-growing species. Plus, the foundations are of poured concrete.

Building Science

Now we can protect your home and environment from the harsh realities of our climate through specialized materials, tools, and installation methods.

My colleague at work recommended Revision Built as a company for home renovation. I had hired them to do various home repairs over the past several years. The first time I called Revision Built, I immediately felt at ease upon meeting the company representative. One of the jobs they did was to identify and repair a problem area where water was leaking in through my foundation wall. Other companies I called in could not even identify the problem. The repairs gave me peace of mind at a fair price. The workers were all very polite. They also left the working area very clean.
