Take a tour of a recent whole-home renovation in Wildwood, Calgary. This dated 1970s bungalow was transformed into a contemporary masterpiece. Make sure you stop by the kitchen, master-bathroom, and basement wetbar to see some stunning features!
We are very pleased to share this new photo with you!
We recently completed this basement development in NW Calgary, it was an extra special project as it contained an existing built in safe which we incorporated into this beautiful basement development.
Cindy of Purple Turtle Design produced drawings for this lovely, open plan living area with ample storage (I have never seen that many built in cabinets in one basement!), a guest bedroom, full bathroom and safe room. An oversized custom sliding door was installed on custom wall tracks which slides along the length of the wall to cover the safe door. Dark stained maple was used throughout for two large built ins, the custom door, the stair railing and the bathroom vanity. A light, neutral wall colour was painted on all walls in the basement to provide a light, airy feel.
There is lots of room for this young family to play!
We're very happy to present to you our brand new Fire Ant Contracting Magazine!

We were lucky enough to transform this original 1960s Haysboro, Calgary home into a fresh contemporary dream.
The original kitchen was dated and the fixtures/appliances needed a drastic upgrade. The clients selected some beautiful stainless steel, state of the art appliances which our interior designer seamlessly designed the new paint grade custom cabinetry around. A beautiful white glass backsplash tile in a fishtail design covers all the exposed walls, countertop to ceiling. Clean, off white quartz countertops with a curved eating bar complement the fresh colours throughout. New oak hardwood with a contemporary stained finish was installed throughout the main floor.
The original black and white floor inspired this beautiful mosaic tile bathroom floor laid in a geometric pattern. We said goodbye to the pink bath tub, toilet and sink and replaced them with clean WHITE fixtures. Our designer created this beautiful two tone upper/lower custom bathroom vanity with a lower stained section and a built in upper paint grade upper with an integrated mirror, storage and lighting. Behind the toilet are three custom stained floating shelves for additional bathroom storage and decorative items. White subway wainscoting throughout the whole bathroom completes this bathroom beautifully.
Luxury Asian Inspired Ensuite and GIANT Walk in Closet
Fire Ant Contracting were fortunate enough to renovate a master bedroom ensuite bathroom and walk in closet. The master bedroom suite layout was completely re-designed by our talented designer Cindy MacKenzie from Purple Turtle Designs; a badly designed closet was transformed into an open plan, spacious closet room complete with ample hanging space and a HUGE centre island for even more storage.
Our designer was inspired by the client's love of Asian artifacts and bold colours. The standalone tub becomes a focal point at one end of the oversized bathroom, the symmetrical double vanity welcomes you as you pull apart the contemporary maple barn doors, a very large steam shower with family size bench is located next to a functional make up area.

Luxury En-Suite Bathroom
What a beautiful bathroom! We are lucky to have the BEST customers, employees, trades, designers and photographer. Take a look at this beautiful Master-Ensuite spa retreat, you walk in and feel instantly relaxed, ahhh.... a personal spa like oasis.
The most beautiful tilework: Floor to ceiling travertine tile, a custom mosaic marble tile floor inlay, a custom mosaic tub surround, shower bench, shower floor and wall inserts. All of our cabinetry is handcrafted by the best cabinet makers, this vanity and centre, furniture style piece were designed to match the recently completed kitchen also by Fire Ant Contracting. Leathered Titanium granite on the double vanity, tub ledge, bench top and shower door transition.
....Wow what a bath!
Luxury En-Suite Bathroom/Walk In Closet Renovation
We transformed a rarely used guest bedroom into a unique ensuite bathroom - walk in closet combination room. The bathroom area consists of 'His' and 'Hers' custom maple vanities with quartz countertops, under mount sinks and chrome fixtures. We built a custom tile shower with built in curved corner bench with a matching quartz bench seat. A separate water closet also has a custom maple cabinet with a beautiful quartz top. The closet area was designed for maximum storage in mind. There are ample hanging areas, drawers and shelving.
Complete home renovation in beautiful Willow Park.
Fire Ant Contracting had the privilege of working with a wonderful family to transform their large but dated family home in the sought after neighbourhood of Willow Park, Calgary. We completely gutted the main floor of the house, we removed a central wall to create one large kitchen/living area. The garage to house door was moved to enter into a new custom designed mud room. This busy young family are now enjoying their bright, contemporary space with custom paint grade cabinetry throughout, granite counter tops and beautiful new hardwood. Both the master en-suite bathroom and children's main bathroom were also renovated. We custom built new paint grade double vanities, quartz counters and heated tile throughout. The master en-suite bathroom has a beautiful custom steam shower.
