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

Bathroom Remodel – Antwerp, Ohio

Bathroom Remodel – Antwerp, Ohio

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

  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

Bathroom Remodel – Edgerton, Ohio

Bathroom Remodel – Edgerton, Ohio

CONDENSED! This small bathroom was just off the garage and kind of served as a mudroom.  The homeowners didn’t really use it, and it actually made the entry from the garage a bit cramped.  We helped them out by first eliminating the small stand-up shower, vanity, and medicine cabinet.  The toilet was moved to the… Continue Reading

Bathroom Remodel (Laundry Room) – Edgerton, Ohio

Bathroom Remodel (Laundry Room) – Edgerton, Ohio

  MIX IT UP!  We really did a lot of moving around on this one, in regards to rough plumbing.  The homeowner wished to have more space to accommodate the laundry equipment in this large bathroom.  To accomplish this, we permanently removed the hot tub, a stub wall, and we even acquired about 32″ of… Continue Reading
