MODERN CONVENIENCE WITH CHARACTER

Cooking was difficult in this 100 year old St. Paul kitchen.  Our design team made the most of limited space by blocking off a little-used doorway and providing our client with creative storage solutions that maximized the small 10×12 room.

One of the challenges that our team faced during this project was a cluster of plumbing pipes coming from the floor above that would have been costly to relocate.  Our designer’s solution was to box around them and covert the space into a “drop zone” for purses and shoes when entering the back door.

The finished kitchen blends in perfectly with the 1915 home, yet still provides all of the modern conveniences that our client wished for, including Cambria quartz countertops, stainless appliances, and undercabinet lighting.  Since the room is so small, every inch is valuable, so the cabinets are equipped with numerous custom features to maximize the storage space.

 

TESTIMONIALS

“Eric and his crew took an old, 1915 kitchen with too many doors, too little cabinetry, and a ton of issues and turned into a beautiful, modern kitchen.  They installed new cabinetry, plumbing, electrical, lighting and appliances.   They painted window trim and an old door, and matched old birch molding.  They also put up drywall over one of the doorways to create more space in the kitchen and then matched the wood trim on the other side of the doorway.  You can’t even tell the door was there, and the trim matches beautifully.  And of course the kitchen is gorgeous!

I can’t say enough good things about Allrounder.  Eric and his crew are professional, communicate well, stick to their timeline even when they’re thrown curve balls, work hard, and most important of all they do great work!   Eric met with me to review kitchen plans.  He then wrote up a detailed estimate.  Once we’d gone over the work to be done he created a timeline for when the work would likely be completed.  We then chose cabinetry, a sink, faucet, under cabinet lighting, etc and he was very patient as I changed my mind a number of times!   Once the work started, the crew was on time and worked hard through a challenging project.  On more than one occasion they stayed until 9:00 or 10:00 at night (after asking of course!) because cabinetry had arrived late or other things occurred that were out of their control, so they could stay on schedule.   And the kitchen is gorgeous!  I can’t point to anything I would have done differently, and I know if there was something I was dissatisfied with Eric would take care of it in a heartbeat. Eric and his crew really care about the work they do and they do it well, qualities that are hard to find these days.  I’ve already used Allrounder for a number of other jobs, and would hire them again anytime.”

General Contractor in Inver Grove Heights

FULL HOME REMODEL IN INVER GROVE

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.

 

TESTIMONIAL

“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.”

Design Build Remodel custom renovations

FULL HOME REMODEL IN COTTAGE GROVE

This 1950’s rambler hadn’t received much updating since it had been built.  The project includes a full kitchen, master bath remodel, and a completely finished basement.  In addition, the leaky old galvanized plumbing system was replaced with modern PVC and PEX piping.

 

MULTI-FINISH KITCHEN

Built in the 1950’s, this kitchen suffered from a lack of counter space, a lack of storage space, and some scary electrical and plumbing problems.  After fully gutting the room to the studs, the mechanicals were upgraded, the walls were re-insulated, drywalled and painted.  Custom cherry cabinets, Cambria quartz countertops, and stainless appliances provided the finishing touches.

Our design team did a great job of making the most of a very small galley kitchen space.   This kitchen incorporates numerous colors and textures to appeal to every sense:  Cherry, copper, stainless, bronze, dark gray backsplash tile, and dark brown LVT flooring.

 

MASTER BATHROOM

The bathroom also suffered from some electrical and plumbing deficiencies, including a rotten floor near the toilet.  After many “behind the wall” upgrades, the space was finished off with LVT floor tile, custom cherry cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops, and fixtures from Delta and Kohler.

 

BASEMENT

Our clients goals for the basement were:  provide additional storage, upgrade the laundry service, add a ¾ bathroom, and provide a generous multi-purpose area, which could be used for family space or an office setup.  The space was dark and gloomy, so our plan included new egress windows and plenty of recessed lighting.  One side of the basement is “utility” with plenty of closets for storage.  The other side features the large multi-purpose space.  In addition, a combination laundry/bathroom consolidates these areas to free up space for other uses.
