We call this project the “Slippery Slope”, because there was a slope in the floor and a slope in the scope of the project. We were originally asked about a door that would not close because it was out of alignment. We found that the slab foundation has sunk and needed to be jacked back to its original height. Since that was a significant expense in itself, the homeowners decided to have us do a complete remodeling of their kitchen/dining/den area. We jacked up the foundation and roof to their original levels, installed all new cabinets, backsplash, appliances, plumbing and lighting fixtures. We installed a ceramic tile floor in the kitchen and engineered hardwood floors in the dining and den areas. The old ceiling was in disrepair and had to be redone, along with an existing skylight after the foundation and roof were repaired.
We completely remodeled this kitchen, updating with all new cabinets, new ceramic tile floors and backsplash, and all new fixtures. We opened up the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room and refinished the dining room wood floors.
Full Condominium Remodel
This was a complete remodel of an entire condominium. We put new flooring throughout, tile and hardwood, repainted everything, and installed all new plumbing and lighting fixtures. The pass through window from the kitchen was enlarged and kitchen cabinets reconfigured. Believe it or not, those are the same cabinets, except for the ones with glass doors above the sink, stripped and repainted. New granite countertops and undercabinet lighting create a beautiful new look, making the kitchen feel much larger than it was before. The bathroom was a completely gutted and the plumbing was reconfigured to create a “glamorous” new shower, cabinets and granite countertops.
We built this detached garage in Waxhaw. We built this one of a kind oversize garage to the homeowner’s specifications. All of the exterior finishes were matched to the house. This garage includes heating and cooling on the main level, a full stairway to the upper storage area, and upgraded finishes throughout. It’s one of a kind. We later (sorry, no pictures this time) constructed a similar garage for another homeowner in the same neighborhood, which includes an art studio, kitchen and full bath upstairs.
We remodeled this bathroom to create an old-fashioned bath, including claw foot tub and subway tile on the walls. We also incorporated modern touches, both visible to the eye (all glass oversized shower) and invisible to the eye (heating coils in the ceramic tile floor). All new cabinets with soapstone countertops, an antique chandelier, and antique mirror complete the vision brought to us by the homeowner.
1940’s Home Restoration
Perhaps our proudest work, restoring this beautiful old home. This house was built in the 1940’s and was a marvelous home for its time. It had fallen to a distressing level of disrepair after many hard years of abuse as an unloved rental home. We realized this house’s potential the first time we saw it. The floors, wall, ceilings, and all the fixtures were in terrible shape. The front porch roof was falling in. The basement was in terrible shape and the heating system was barely alive. We ripped out what we had to, refinished and encapsulated what we could, installed a new heating and air system, moved the laundry room out of the basement, and turned this house into a showcase. It may be the finest rental home in the area, and is, as are all of our rental properties, available for sale.
