This project touched nearly every room on all 3 floors of the home.
The crown jewel of this project is the kitchen. Careful planning and a full gut job allowed this space to really open up and become a useful space for our clients. Old wonky framing was repaired. The plumbing, electrical, and ventilation were all brought up to date. Spray foam insulation made an instant difference in the comfort level of the room before the drywall went up. Custom trim was curated to perfectly match what was in the other rooms of the home, and then the painters did a great job in making it all pop.
Next, the custom cabinets were installed. The cabinets include soft close doors and drawers, along with hidden rollout trays and a trash/recycling drawer. Cambria quartz countertops look great and will be easy to maintain. The wavy tile backsplash is super fun. Tons of lighting was included ,both overhead and undercabinet. Stainless appliances finish things off.
A foundation leak led to much of the existing finishes being removed. A drain tile system with sump pump was installed to deter future water infiltration. Our team discussed some different ideas and options with the clients. Ultimately it was decided to maintain the existing wood wall coverings on the existing interior walls, and rebuild the exterior walls with a drywall covering. Painting all of these surfaces the same color really ties things together. Since the ceiling height was so low, we left it open instead of covering it with drywall. Painting the existing floor framing above makes the space feel much taller than it really is. Our team added tons of lighting and updated the electrical system. Updated heating supplies and returns, along with spray foam insulation really makes this basement feel cozy, even during winter months.
These areas received a nice cosmetic update. Walls, ceilings, and trim were painted. The wood floors were sanded and refinished. Fun note on the wood floors: 2 other wood floor companies turned the job down because they didn’t feel the floors could be saved. Kudos to our team for their efforts and beautiful results. The finished attic received new vinyl plank flooring, along with new carpet on the stairs.
Both exterior storm doors were replaced and a new electrical subpanel was installed.
