Custom Bookcases and Fireplace Surround

Yes, we do custom carpentry!  The pictures displays some work done in Brandon’s own personal home.  This project includes open shelving and lower doors with one set of upper doors.  The shelving is completely adjustable to accommodate changing decor.

Obviously (from the picture above), displaying photos is paramount to Brandon and his family.  The 12″ deep upper shelving provides ample space for pictures and knick knacks alike.  Keeping games and puzzles organized and most importantly out of sight is also important.  The kids know right where to find their favorite things but the parents are quick to point out that, “everything has its place”.  The half overlay, raised panel door style accents the other trim in the room and surrounding the fireplace and mantel.

The lower left and right portions of this family center are 18″ deep and the center unit projects 22″ into the room.  The white enamel paint provides a very durable finish.  Bead board panels line the rear of the open shelves for a dramatic and classy touch.

Brandon's Fireplace

The fireplace surround boasts of upper and lower square columns rising from floor to ceiling.  The simulated inset panels give a majestic feel to this center piece.  A quick run of base and cap installed above the mantel yields a stunning look contrasted by the mocha colored wall paint applied to the inside remaining drywall.  Let Quinta Contractors, LLC design and fabricate some custom bookcases for you.

Betsy's Half Bathroom Before 2

 

 

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.

Susan’s Kitchen

Susan was ready for an updated kitchen; she contacted Quinta Contractors, LLC with a list of desires for the new design.  The galley style kitchen of her 1950’s home just did not meet her needs and failed to match the rest of the home’s interior which had been improved throughout the years.  She requested a design be drafted for new cabinets, counter tops, flooring, windows, and wall and floor coverings.

 

 

 

 

 

What emerged from the design process was breath taking in comparison.  The determination was made that removing an interior wall would leave the seemingly small room with a much larger feel.  Color was the next component used to introduce change.  The existing darker wooden colored linoleum and dark green painted cabinets lead to little distinction; the walls had been painted a lighter more neutral color.  The designer elected to swap this palette completely; the new cabinets were finished with a light to medium tone, the ceramic tile floor utilized lighter earth tones, the walls changed to deep rich red lending to burgundy, and the new vinyl replacement windows were white to match the paint on the new trim.

 

Pot and pan drawers below the new five burner cook top was a great addition to the convenience factor.  Storage in the remodeled kitchen was greatly increased by the new pantry integrated into the cabinetry.  Frosted glass doors added some depth to the appearance as well.

Other enhancing features in the cabinetry included open shelving and an appliance garage.  An lazy susan was integrated into the two lower corner cabinets.  A pot filler was set into wall and tile back-splash for the cook top.  Finally the stainless steel appliances, brushed nickel cabinet knobs and pulls, and chrome faucet all accented the gray tones in the solid surface counter tops.

Jack’s Vinyl Siding

Jack’s house was built in 1981 and was clad in masonite siding. As is so often the case, even his best efforts to keep his home’s exterior painted regularly, were not preventing the deterioration to his siding. Removing the existing siding to replace it would have come with a price tag Jack just couldn’t afford.

Quinta Contractors, LLC was able to offer him a solution which did fit right in with his budget. The premium vinyl siding we supplied and installed fit right over his
existing siding. The phrase “cover the wood and make it look good”, proved true yet again.

Jack's Vinyl Siding Rear Elevation Detail

His new vinyl siding came with a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer
covering everything from chipping, pealing, to fading. The bright white he
chose for the trim on the fascia and door and window surrounds provided him
just the right contrast to the gray on the walls.

 

The “maintenance free” aspect of the vinyl siding is what really sold him on the idea. Knowing he would not have to drag out the ladders to paint it himself or pay for continual costly repairs, gave him peace of mind. Best yet, his home was transformed into one of the best looking ones on the block!
