House Flip

S House  (4)

This is a house I helped to flip.

The Living Room, Dining Room, and Hallway had carpeting covering the original hardwood flooring. Carpeting was removed, hardwood floors refinished. The existing Mantle around the fireplace wasn’t very functional, so I installed a new one. Custom fit mantle for the homeowners needs.

Custom Mantle

This was part of the House Flip I posted about.

I removed the old wood paneling, mantle, and shelving. It looked terrible, and outdated, and didn’t utilize the space very well. It also had fake gas logs in the fireplace, with a worn out brass screen. I had to move the electrical & cable to the new locations, patch the open drywall areas, texture the walls to match exiting, painted the walls, and installed baseboards.

Master Bathroom Tile

This is my third shower I tiled in the Dreamland Home. It is also the Master Bathroom shower tile. The back wall (opposite the shower head), was a lot of work and has a lot of detail. It has 6 cubby holes for shampoos and soap bottles, and a seat that ran across the back. It also had diamond patterns, trim, and edge tiles. These pictures don’t do it justice. It came out looking great!! Click to view more pictures.

Tile Floor

den-tile-71


This was a slightly bigger project. The customer wanted; the 70’s acoustic ceiling removed, re-textured the same as the walls, new paint colors, Crown molding installed, new ceiling fan, new baseboards, carpeting removed, and new tile installed. The tile they had chosen was a close color match to their existing hallway and kitchen. The homeowners didn’t have a design of what they wanted the tile to look like. So I designed this pattern, and made sure the grout lines and tile flowed into the existing tile in the hallway. Overall it was a fun project and turned out to be a really nice Den for the husband.

Tile Shower and Floor

Center Wall

This was my first tile job in the Dreamland Home. I made sure the grout lines flowed through the shower walls and transferred through to the floor tile. The tile inside the shower, on the floor I did in a diamond pattern. It has a raised seat and a feature strip. The homeowner liked the larger tile with the turtle and Palm Trees and wanted them installed at eye level with a border. The seat also has 3 small tiles that have fish on them. So when you are facing the shower head you are looking at the Turtle tile. The crown border tiles added a nice touch to give it more depth.

Tile Shower

Overview

This is my second shower I tiled in the Dreamland Home. It has 3 tiled cubby holes on the outside for storage of towels, shampoos, soaps, etc. Inside the shower there is a large tiled shelf for these items too, up higher. It has a diamond pattern on floor tiles. The green and yellow tiles were also placed in the flooring tiles. The crown border tiles added a nice touch to give it more depth.
