Structural Floor Work

We moved along well with the structural garage floor replacement project we are undertaking. Once the floor was removed we installed shoring to support the wet concrete. Before we placed the concrete we carefully installed epoxy coated reinforcing steel rods. The structural engineer determined the size and placement of the rod, a...

Bath and Laundry Remodeling

We started another home remodeling project on Monday. This one involves removing an existing bathroom and closet and reconfiguring them to create a new more compact bathroom, and a new main level laundry area. The architect did a good job fitting everything into the space without requiring an addition to the home.

The laundry and bath remodeling project we started some days ago has moved along very nicely. We completed the framing last week and the mechanical and electrical systems have been installed.

We ordered the door with...

Kitchen and Bath Remodeling

This week we started work on a remodeling project in a 1940's home. The home is a very solid structure that only had two previous owners in its lifetime. It was well cared for all during that time, but needs some updating of surfaces and modifications to serve the new owners. Our main tasks are renovations in the kitchen and converti...

We filled in some openings, enlarged some other openings, created the new shower area, etc. The openings in the living room area required the installation of a laminated beam to support the second level of the home. That...
