Owner of this estate wanted a new deck, but he was concerned that any new material that we would install wouldn’t look inappropriate next to his home which is from the 1800. His further concern was also that he didn’t want to purchase new lawn furniture, for few reasons: First, is that any new furniture even if it’s going to look dated would still look too new. Second, the furniture was going to be way too expensive. Lastly, the furniture looked awful for the price. So we opted to give him a vintage look deck, and wrapped seating around the perimeter by using the same decking material as seating. We acid washed the entire deck and seating to give it a worn look, however with immaculate structural integrity. The previous landscaping filled in, and the deck looked like it was there from previous years. Whats was really interesting was that we added a very simple design, and yet the same design can be used in any home. We just added a different finish.
In this project our challenge was to deliver to the homeowner a chic cutting edge bathroom in the basement. Our first challenge was the ceiling height. We overcame this obstacle by digging lower, and underpinning the existing foundation. We were lucky that the sewer line was much lower than what we dug for the finished floor. We insulated the floor prior to our pour of concrete, and at the same time we were pleased that the homeowner took our suggestion of having floor radiated heat via hydronics.
The local codes dictated that we needed fresh air and windows. As you can see we lit the entire room with the brand new windows we installed throughout the perimeter.
We installed the roman shower with a waterproof pan underneath, and thereafter was caped with creme marfil stone. The shower floor is removal made from teak with exterior grade finished. We hid the drain under the teak floor, while the gap in between the boards rinsed through. Cabinetry was custom made and is wall mounted with zero plumbing line peeping out.
We thank the homeowner for the opportunity to show their basement bathroom remodel project.
