Bathroom Remodel – Bryan, Ohio

Bathroom Remodel – Bryan, Ohio

TOTAL GUT & REPAIR – This bathroom was long overdue for an upgrade.  The old 3″ cast iron waste line was leaking into the downstairs kitchen every time the toilet was flushed.  YIKES!  As a result, we opted to replace all rough plumbing (waste and supply lines) from the basement up.  Since the sub floor… Continue Reading

Bathroom Remodel – Hicksville, Ohio

Bathroom Remodel – Hicksville, Ohio

YIKES!  We were dealing with plenty of plaster and moisture issues with this remodel, especially around the tub alcove.  Tile was falling, top-coat was bubbling, and the mold was pretty bad.  Our goal was to remove all the tile wainscot and popcorn ceiling texture, and then apply skimcoat to clean up the look of the… Continue Reading

Double Closet Door Installation – Antwerp, Ohio

Double Closet Door Installation – Antwerp, Ohio

CLEAN LOOK – This double closet door comes as a pre-hung unit.  The old bi-fold louvered doors were a bit dated and did not function very well.  The new doors are inexpensive, light weight (hollow core), and primed ready for paint (if you wish).  Included with this particular job, I replaced the casing trim (solid… Continue Reading

TOTAL REMODEL – I come across a lot of these old cast iron bathtubs in the older homes that I remodel.  This homeowner thought that her tub could not be removed and that we would have to remodel around it.  Not the case!  They are difficult to remove, but with a little elbow grease, it… Continue Reading

Stairway Construction – Ney, Ohio

Stairway Construction – Ney, Ohio

NO JOB TOO SMALL…(sometimes):  On rare occasions, I have time to squeeze in some smaller jobs when I get a day or two between the big ones.  That was the case here.  The homeowner wanted me to build a new stairway from the garage into the house.  The treated wood materials are factory made, which… Continue Reading

Bathroom Remodel – Bryan, Ohio

Bathroom Remodel – Bryan, Ohio

ACCESSIBILITY IS THE KEY!  The homeowner requested that I replace this relatively new fiberglass tub unit with a 60″ walk-in shower.  This made the shower much more accessible to a family member who recently had foot surgery.  This particular shower unit has a mere 2 1/2″ curb to step over, as opposed to a tub… Continue Reading

RETHINKING SOME ATTIC SPACE – Did you know that adding a half bathroom will increase your home’s value by at least 10.5 percent? (National Association of Home Builders)  That’s exactly what we did on this job.  Previously, the only bathroom in this home was on the first floor, leaving nighttime restroom trips rather hazardous while… Continue Reading

TimberCrest Perfection Vinyl Siding Installation

TimberCrest Perfection Vinyl Siding Installation

  PROFOUND TRANSFORMATION!  We started with the removal of all the old, dated aluminum siding followed up by wrapping the home with Typar to help with wind penetration.  The homeowner wished to have a bolder white trim around all windows and doors, so the wood brickmould was replaced with a beefy 3 1/2″ 2×4 followed… Continue Reading
