Carley Rangen - Interior Designer

I was born in Vancouver B.C., moving to Vernon with my family in 1976. Raising my 3 children in the beautiful Okanagan, I worked in the local schools as a Certified Education Assistant. I was approached by a small interior design firm in 2007 and asked to join their team. In 2009, when the owner moved to Alberta, I started my own design firm as Olive Tree Interior Designs. My holistic approach to design is inspired by a passion for nature, design and people. Encouraged by family and friends, I take the beauty, love and gratitude from everyday life and find joy expressing it through art and design.

6 critical reasons why Smith & Sons can help you avoid the many pitfalls of the renovation process ...especially #2!

  • We are not just general contractors - but designers as well.

That means when you contact us we won't just go and tell you to get some plans done - we will start your renovation journey with you, right where you are, and see you through to the end. From inspiration to reality.

  • We understand costs better than most.

One of the major issues we see is people running out and paying for plans to get done, only to then find out they can't afford it. Being general contractors, get us involved early so we can help you with budget, and you get to spend your hard-earned cash on nice things for your renovation, not on plans you can't use!

  • We are renovation specialists - we understand renovating.

One of our unique differences is that we specialise in home renovations. We enjoy the challenges and rewards of renovating and are well exercised in using creativity and resourcefulness to overcome any issues that we may find.

  • We communicate!

In ANY construction project, if it is to succeed - there must be open and honest communication between the general contractor (that's us) and the client (that's you!) We will be sure to talk to you about the construction schedule, any potential issues or changes with your renovation, and anything else that may crop up.

  • We get how renovations affect households and families.

We realise a renovation can sometimes interrupt the regularly scheduled routine of the household. Although we always try to minimise this, we get that things aren't always 'normal' - but because most of our general contractors have families too, we'll always do our best to make you and your family as comfortable as they can be during the renovation.

  • We take care of the entire process - from inspiration to completion
