Michelle and Buddy’s New Bathroom

Remodel During Re-construction

The master bathroom remodel was but a part of the whole house remodel for Michelle and Buddy performed by Quinta Contractors, LLC.  Additions were added to increase the size of the dinning room and living area as well as a large storage room.  Michelle’s bathroom retained the same footprint but gained an entirely new look.

Buddy’s New Custom Bath Tub

Tile was removed from the existing floor and shower.  The bath tub was removed as well.  Plans called for a new jetted bath tub.  In fact, the jacuzzi bath tub was custom made to seat two and included a granite tub deck to match the new granite counter tops.

 

 

 

Buddy’s Remodeled Shower

 

 

The new shower walls and ceiling received Travertine tumbled marble 4″x4″ tile on a diagonal pattern.  Travertine tile also adorned the wall border with matching pencil trim.  An arched door way was created to add more definition to the overall design.

 

 

Michelle selected polished chrome for the finish on the tub, sink, and shower fixtures. The existing cabinet height was increased by 4″ and then we resurfaced the cabinets.  Custom doors were fabricated for the front side of the bath tub to match the refaced cabinets.  New lighting changes included  recessed or can lighting in the ceiling.  Crown molding and new wallpaper completed the bathroom remodel by our professional craftsmen at Quinta.

Jo Ann’s Kitchen

 

Jo Ann's New Kitchen

 

Jo Ann was ready to have a kitchen designed and built.  We met Jo Ann and her husband at a local home show.  The previous kitchen had been more useful when she had kids at home and meals were served in the eat-in portion of the kitchen.  The other half of the divided kitchen served as the work-side.

The galley kitchen was narrow and condensed.  The room itself provided ample space but only to the creative eye.  Jo Ann contracted with Quinta to produce a new plan. (Above, left and below)

The new plan provided by Quinta Contractors, LLC would involve gutting the kitchen of all it’s cabinets, counter tops, flooring, and appliances.  Removing the two sets of fir downs (area of short wall above cabinets) was necessary to open the room up and allow for the new cabinetry.  The entire center console housing the refrigerator, range, and cabinets was eliminated from the new design.

A new set of cabinets was installed perpendicular to the previous center bank with two sets of pan drawers.  The counter top placed on this new island also included a  custom constructed high rise bar top to allow for the option of bar stool seating in the kitchen.  New cabinets were installed on the three outer walls.  These cabinets were a full overlay design with a medium wood tone.  The inset panels on the doors and all end panels were all bead board adding a distinctive look.

Counter tops were constructed of six inch tile and topped with a back splash of the same tile.  The matching sink rail used for the trim on these tops gave it all a nice, sculpted finish.   A custom faux paint job requiring several coats was applied to the walls.

Lighting was another big change in this project.  Square florescent lights were installed in the ceiling, three pendent lights were hung over the bar, and lights were placed in the upper glass cabinets.  White appliances were chosen to add some contrast to the earth tones in the room.  A free-floating laminate was selected for the flooring.

One quick glance at the before pictures on this one and you’ll know why Betsy was in such a hurry to change this bathroom.  The combination of dark colors made this small bathroom seem even smaller.  The half bath measuring only three foot by eight foot had a ceiling of nine feet, an the plaid wallpaper with long vertical strips made matters worse.

 

 

 

She selected six inch ceramic tile for the floor in a neutral base.  A pedestal sink served to expand the floor space as much as possible.  The new wainscoting of bead board with a small shelf for trim was added to break up the height of the walls.  A new mirror had a new wall sconce lights installed on either side.

A fresh coat of paint applied to the walls and trim, including the door and trim and
this bath was a beautiful compliment to the rest of their home. The faucet and
other accents were finished in oil rubbed bronze. Quinta Contractors, LLC
gained one more satisfied client through this remodel.

Nita’s Bathroom

This bath remodel is from our archives so to speak.  As such, we were not able to assemble the before pictures on this project.

Nita's Bathroom (1)

Nita and her husband Bill came to know Quinta Contractors, LLC as so many of our clients have, at one of the area home shows.  They had long since dreamed of a new master bathroom, but needed help making the necessary design decisions.  Quinta, has since it’s inception in March of 2000 operated as a design build remodeling firm.  We stepped in and formulated a design to meet Nita and Bill’s desires and needs in the new bathroom.

Nita's Bathroom (2)

The shower was enlarged and a pantry unit matching the new vanity cabinets installed into the wall to increase storage.  The new shower door and side panels were made from frosted glass and brushed nickel framing in order to coordinate with the new brushed nickel plumbing fixtures.  The cabinetry was finished in a deep, rich cherry stain.

 

 

 

Nita's Bathroom (3)

The flooring was a neutral colored 12′ ceramic tile on a straight laid pattern with darker 4″ tiles installed in the corners of each 12″ tile for a beautiful patterned contrast.  The wall base was cut from the same 12″ tile.  A new vanity light and ceiling can lights enhanced the vitality of the room.  A fresh coat of paint was applied to all the walls, ceiling, and trim to complete the project.

Carport Conversions

Carport Before Conversion

A carport is great for sheltering your vehicles from the sun throughout most of the day, however it may leave you and your vehicles susceptible to more than just morning or evening sun exposure.  Most new construction homes this day and time include at least a double garage, but some older homes only have a carport.  Converting an existing carport to an enclosed garage is an affordable way to upgrade your home’s value.

Enclosed garages offer more than shelter from the sun.  They provide ample protection from wind, rain, and snow as well.  Enhanced security is also an advantage from a garage vs. a carport.  Quinta Contractors, LLC makes the conversion process simple while remaining flexible to meet the needs of the homeowner.  Some clients would prefer to have open stud or exposed framing, while others desire to have the interior walls and ceiling finished with sheetrock.  Our carpenters, framers, and sheetrockers are professionals who understand the value of providing quality service for each project we undertake.

Garage After Conversion

 

The pictures attached with this article depict the before and after of one such conversion performed by Quinta.  The cost of the remodel can at least in part be offset by the increased value added to your home.  The safety and security can prove to be priceless.
