Paula’s Master Bathroom

Paula and husband Jeff had already used Quinta Contractors, LLC for projects such as vinyl replacement windows and replacing a storm door.  This time the request was a bit larger, gutting the master bathroom and starting the design with a clean slate.  Paula contacted Quinta and requested that Bryan design her new bathroom.

The ideas would need to be bold and striking in order to transform the outdated bathroom.  The existing bathroom housed what we in the business refer to as a “cave shower”, a small and dark 3 foot by 3 foot square shower with a fir down which created a lowered ceiling.

These showers often become laden with mold and mildew.  The cause of these unwanted guest are two fold: the shower pan (a thick rubberized liner) under the shower floor tile begins to leak and the second problem is the lack of natural light and air ventilation for the shower stall.  The lack of room to move freely in these types showers is also a constant source of frustration for their owners.  Once the shower pan has failed repair is not really an option; replacement is the only fix for a damaged shower pan.

Bryan’s design would require removing a non load bearing wall separating the double vanity area from the bath tub, shower, and commode section.   The floral wallpaper was a constant reminder of days gone by (most of our remodels do not include wallpaper as a part of the design).  The small glossy white floor tiles required an abundance of grout lines.  The bathroom actually was host to a stand alone shower and a bath tub/ shower combo.   Bryan and homeowner, Paula, were in agreement the bathroom lacked adequate storage and had some wasted space that needed to be reclaimed.

 

 

So bring on the creativity, please!

 Once the wall was removed from the foot print or flooring plan, the designer had a new and empty canvass for the design.  Eliminating the stand up shower was a must.  The tub/ shower combo wasn’t needed or useful any longer either.  Bryan created a concept board revealing the new foot print (including a 4 foot by 6 foot shower with frameless glass walls), the new vanity, granite counter tops and shower seat, sink and shower faucets, wall coverings, lighting fixtures, floor and shower floor tile, the addition of crown molding and custom cabinets.  Paula was elated to see the possibilities for her new bath.

After some minor changes to the over all design concept, the demolition began.  Out with the old and in with the new.  Paula’s budget and expectationswere ultimately satisfied with another custom renovation performed by the crews at Quinta Contractors, LLC.  She  was pleased to find herself in a new bathroom which met her needs and definitely provided her a bathroom to be proud of for years to come.

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.
