Welcome to Maison 197
Hi, I'm Paul Tang. We are currently renovating a house that has been in existence since the 1800s. It had undergone numerous changes before we bought it in 2010, and it is still evolving. Our goal is to achieve the LEED Certification from the Canada Green Building Council. We are here to share our experience and challenges with you throughout the process. We would like to thank our suppliers listed below for their kind support. They have motivated us and encouraged us along the way. We hope this site will be a resource for inspiration and education.
The Maison 197 is situated in Montreal, Canada. We used only the best kinds of technology available today. This includes geothermal technology, rain water container, and sun window. In addition, sun tunnel, waste water recovery system, solar hot water heater, and heated-radiation floor are also added to develop a more efficient home.

Update on July 21,2018
After the flood in 2017, we have been cleaning up and rearranged many stuffs in the house, and spent the long winter time in doing the interior of the mezzanine and the second floor.
Around May 2018, the weather is hot, we took this time to work on the outer siding of the house, doing the outer insulation, making the frame, building the structure of the house.
We are so grateful that we have found a new sponsor in our project, the Luxor Architectural provides us the wood finish aluminum siding. The strength of this aluminum with the durability of its coating make a superior product as a shield to the house.
