Carriage Doors

Before and After pictures of new Custom Carriage Doors.

This was a facelift to an old 1920’s home with a detached garage. I designed and built both doors. They are hollow with dense foam inside for insulation. This also reduced the weight.

The entry door was also replaced with a new frame. I sanded down and stripped the old paint from the siding. Sealed with primer and painted. The final result was a huge upgrade from the old view.

Bathroom Remodel

This was an interesting remodel. The home was built out of cinder blocks, and a concrete slab floor. I had to work with the inspectors closely to make sure everything was okay to do before I made changes. The previous contractor had walked away from the project, after he incorrectly tied in the plumbing. The Inspector wanted either metal studs or pressure treated boards to be in contact with the cinder block walls. The door was a custom fit too. I had to frame it in and trim down the door to fit. Once the plumbing was hooked up correctly, and framed in, the rest of the project went fairly smoothly.

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 It looked terrible, and outdated, and didn’t utilize the space very well.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.
