ABOUT BEYOND MEASURE DESIGN

At Beyond Measure Design Inc. we create home designs for affluent families that share your distinct life story, values and reflect your greater purpose in the world. You are meant to live a life beyond measure.

What We do

Beyond Measure Design Inc. is here to be a partner in this sometimes confusing, time-consuming process.

We start with our Initial Design Consultation process where we completed a full lifestyle assessment and start to ask questions – lots of questions. Let’s get into uncovering those large life goals you have, shall we? How can your home help you achieve these? Well, we can’t give that away just yet.

From here, we start into a custom Design Development just for you. No cookie-cutter approach here. One of the main principles is we follow is context. A room inside a home, a home inside a lot, a lot inside a neighbourhood,  and a neighbourhood inside the community.  We take it all in, the whole picture.

Rest assured the fun doesn’t stop there. After the design is complete & approved we start bringing it full circle with creating the Construction Drawings. Collaboration is key at this stage. All your research into solar panels and ROI on double-wall construction will now come in handy. This is where the full details come together, my friend.

Once Final Construction Drawings are issued you are set and ready to roll. At this point in the project, my hope is you can not only see exactly where you are but you can clearly see where you want to be.

    Can I share my reflections from this past Thursday evening and the magic that happens when four friends gather? It’s been since early February that the four of us have been together.

    Posted on by

    On a recent Instagram post, I posed this question… “If you could have the home of your dreams, what would you absolutely need to include?”  Wow, did you respond. And guess what? It wasn’t exactly what I thought the answers would be. Here is a breakdown of the top 3 answers areas and why I think they are […]

    I’m getting exactly what I want but it looks nothing like how I imagined

    Posted on by

    My current situation is not unlike yours.  I’m working at home, juggling the needs of myself, family & business with school work for my Grade 5’er. I’m stressed about what my future is. I’m continually cleaning something. I’m eating all the carbs in sight. I’m drinking more coffee than water on most days. I’m doing […]

    Our homes have just been kicked into dual duty. Not only are they a place of rest, sanctuary and peace, they are now expected to operate as productive, professional business settings. Anyone else sense a potential problem here? It’s no surprise that the spaces we live and work in have a huge impact on how […]

    It’s time to get comfortable with being f*ing uncomfortable

    Posted on by

    I, like many, have been sorting through the noise. Putting pen to paper is my number one way of making sense of my feelings.  The duality of my feelings has been astounding. I feel both angry and hopeful. Sad and joyful. The intensity has been shocking, and it’s got me reaching into my toolkit (built […]

    Designing differently

    Posted on by

    With the popularity of tiny homes and a greater focus on minimalism and the accompanying lifestyle, estate homes seem to be getting the cold shoulder. Why is that? In my opinion, society has started to equate a specific number of square feet as an acceptable “normal” size for a home with total disregard for the […]

    Designing a Life : Part 1

    Posted on by

    I started designing homes in 1999. A fresh graduate from Saskpolytech with a head bursting with information, a drive to work hard and a heart that wanted nothing more than to help others. It was a rocky road to start to say the least. I jumped into the chaos of navigating a male-dominated construction field […]

    Published articles and the lessons I learned

    Posted on by

    A close friend has been suggesting (or rather insisting) that I put up the links to the writing I completing for Saskatoon Home in 2018. You see, I can be very humble at times and don’t like to draw attention to myself. She quickly, and lovingly reminded me that I should celebrate this accomplishment so I […]
