… for west 7th townhome, fairview vancouver

‘Tanya was essential in my successful town house renovation. First, Tanya recommended a great general contractor to manage the whole project (Allen at Inspired Renovations). Tanya worked with Allen on interior modifications. Tanya and Nichole at Mango then helped me pick paint, tiles for the fireplace and back-splash, new appliances, lighting, a new hand rail and lots of new furniture.
