Bathroom with Teak Cabinetry

This bathroom posed a few challenges for our team.  Naturally, we were able to not only overcome them but in the process made a pretty nice bathroom.

This home was built around 1910, and was badly showing it’s age.  The floor had sagged significantly.  Our carpenters spent much time shoring up the existing floor joists and subfloor to flatten the floor and stiffen it up to reduce it’s “bounce.”  In addition, the walls were noticeably out of plumb and nowhere near square.

Once the framing was shored up, our plumber replaced some ancient lead piping and our electricians made safe work of replacing the old knob and tube wiring.

After these “behind the scenes” items were addressed, our team did a beautiful job in building a lovely bathroom.  One of the quirks of the space is a linen closet which was built into the back wall of the tub/shower.  After much discussion about how to protect this delicate area, our cabinet maker had the great idea of making the doors out of teak wood.  This wood has been used forever for building boats, so it certainly should hold up in a shower.

Other details include porcelain tile on the floor and space-saving fixtures to make the most of the very small footprint.

Cozy Guest Bathroom

This guest bathroom looks great and will hold up well to the use and abuse of house guests.  The highlight is the tiled shower, which includes porcelain tile in a textile-like pattern.  The vanity area includes a granite top with vessel sink and a custom mirror.  The floor also features porcelain tile.



We had Eric from Allrounder replace two showers and remodel our master bathroom. I would HIGHLY recommend Eric for a remodeling job. His communication with us was excellent throughout the entire process and he always kept us appraised of the progress of the job, the timetable and any potential change orders. They took great care to protect the other parts of the house that they would be going through while the remodeling project was being done. And, most importantly, the work they did was great and our new showers and master bath look fantastic.

Warm Master Bath

This spa-like master bath gets used each day by our clients, so it needs to look great as well as hold up to daily use.  Our design team did a great job in using warm-tones to really make this space feel welcoming.  A large tub is available for a relaxing soak.  The large shower is easy to clean and looks sleek.  His-and-hers sinks are topped with a custom mirror.


We were thrilled with our remodel and the experience working with Allrounder Remodeling was great. The team was very professional, did outstanding work and took great care to minimize our disruption. They also made great efforts to protect our home. I especially appreciated the honesty, transparency and good communication provided by Eric. We found him to be a pleasure to work with and could trust him.

Woodbury Home Remodel

This home remodeling project in Woodbury MN includes the full remodel of the master bathroom, a second bathroom, and some facelift work in the kitchen.

Most of this project takes place in the master bathroom.  A large, unused corner bathtub and tiny shower were removed to make space for a spacious master shower.  The new shower features “his and her” ends with features for each of our clients.  “Her” end includes a handshower and a bench seat.  “His” end is simpler with a nice shower head and room for storing shampoo bottles.  The shower also features an accent stripe of the floor tile and a custom glass enclosure.

The master bath also includes a new wood-plank look tiled floor, furniture style vanity, marble countertop.  New mirrors, lighting, paint and accessories finish the space.

The second bathroom is primarily used by the children.  It includes a new tile floor and vanity, as well as paint, lighting, and accessories.

In the kitchen, the existing cabinets were painstakingly painted with a custom distressed finish.  Silestone quartz countertops and a new sink and faucet complete the kitchen remodel.

South St. Paul Bathroom Remodel

This home in South St. Paul was built in the 1940’s, and showed many signs of aging.  After demolition and before the finish work began, upgrades were made to the aging plumbing and electrical systems.  In addition, the original window was replaced with a more efficient glass block window.

To gain some space in the tiny bathroom, the door was replaced with a pocket door.  To add some much-needed storage, a linen closet was built with custom oak cabinetry surrounding it.  Space for the closet was borrowed from an adjacent bedroom closet.

Our clients wish to live in their home for as long as possible, so some aging-in-place touches were added as well.  As designers, we are grateful to the fixture manufacturers fro finally providing grab bars and other accessories that don’t look so institutional.

The beautiful finishes in this bathroom include porcelain tile, fixtures from Delta, and a clear glass shower door that allows the beautiful tile work and additional light from the window to show through.

Home Remodel in Little Canada

This project touched every single room of this 4-level split in Little Canada MN.

Highlights include:

Full remodels of two bathrooms

Partial remodel of a third bathroom

Painting of all walls and ceilings in the entire home

New floorcovering in every room of the home, including carpet, vinyl, and tile

Updated lighting


Since our clients were living in the home throughout the project, we decided to perform the transformation in two phases:  First the lower two levels, and then the upper two levels.  A furniture moving company was hired to relocate our clients belongings prior to each phase, and again at the completion of all of the work. At the conclusion of the project, our professional cleaning team removed all traces of dust and remodeling residue.

Our designer worked tirelessly with the clients to perfect all of the numerous choices in flooring, tile patterns, and paint colors.  She even helped our client hang her pictures and artwork.  Since each room of the home was touched by the project, careful consideration was given to how the different colors and textures work together.

Among the challenges that were faced and overcome:  A hidden mouse infestation that required much disinfectant and odor-blocking primer, An alarm system installation that had wires snaked where our hardwood floors needed to go, and a sensitive fire alarm that was set off during a wood cutting operation (You’ll be glad to know that the Little Canada Fire Chief is a nice fellow).



“Eric and Ruth Bader presented a personal, professional and competent response to the project that I proposed to them.  Never did I sense reluctance or unwillingness to adjust or modify what I wanted done.  Their suggestions were also made with an understanding of my needs and the outcomes that I wanted.
They have assembled a quality team of trades-people who were friendly, professional, and competent.
Over the 2-1/2 months of work, I felt my home and the project were in good hands.  I appreciated that all the work was supervised, double checked for perfection, and generally completed on schedule.  Thanks for a job well done!”

Rosemount MN Design-Build contractor


This project touched every room of the home:  full kitchen and bathroom remodels, as well as new doors, trim, and flooring throughout.  In addition, the popcorn ceiling texture was removed and new knockdown texture was applied, followed by fresh paint on all of the walls and ceilings.

This Inver Grove Heights kitchen still had all of it’s original 1978 parts.  A full gut and remodel included plumbing and electrical upgrades.  The soffit was removed to allow full-height cabinetry and maximize the storage space.  Oak cabinets and Cambria countertops look great and will hold up for many years.

The bathroom tub/shower features two recessed niches and two corner shelves for storage, porcelain tile with a stone and copper inlay, and a deep soaking tub for a relaxing soak after a hard day.  A custom oak vanity provides plenty of storage and is topped with Cambria quartz.  The heated tile floor feels great on a cold winter day.  Custom touches include “floating” wood shelves and a custom robe hook rack.

In the living room, we replaced the sooty wood fireplace with a clean gas fireplace, custom cabinetry, stone surround, and marble tile hearth.  A custom mission-style guardrail surrounds the stairway to the basement.

The entire home received numerous lighting upgrades, including custom lighting in the glass-front cabinets, undercabinet lighting in the kitchen, and recessed lighting with dimmer switches.


“The job took six weeks and it could not have gone smoother. We were updated with each step and things moved quickly. We would like to personally thank you for the outstanding job that Allrounder did on remodeling our home.  We could not be more pleased with the professionalism from everyone who helped along the way.  We extend our compliments to Eric, who did an outstanding job keeping us informed as we went along.  We LOVE our new space and showing it off.  We look forward to the opportunity to work with you on our next project.”

Bathroom remodeling in West St Paul MN


This bathroom remodeling project in Inver Grove Heights posed some interesting challenges, such as a corner bathtub that was barely large enough to fit a small child.  In addition, our client couple is 6’9″ and 5’3” tall, so we needed to come up with a plan to accommodate both of them.  Our solutions included a 6′ whirlpool tub, comfort height toilet, and an extra tall vanity.  The mirror tilts, allowing users of all sizes to prepare for the day comfortably.  Porcelain tile mimics the look of stone without the maintenance.
