DESCRIPTION: Remodel the second and third floor bathrooms of an executive estate using a conceptual plan by Richard Levengood Architects. The second floor bath was gutted and a new tiled walk-in shower, vanity and toilet were installed. The existing window that was
in the shower had glass block installed on the interior for privacy but remained a double hung on the exterior to maintain the integrity of the design of the house. The third floor bath was expanded into an adjoining bedroom. A new vanity, linen closets, toilet, and walk-in shower were added. The adjoining bedroom received a new closet and access door to the attic. Custom doors and trim were made to match existing.

DESCRIPTION: Remodel second floor bathroom. The existing bathroom was completely gutted, including the mud bedded tile floor. New floor joists were sistered to the old joist and a new plywood sub-floor installed, and the exterior wall was insulated. Wainscot, subway tile, and a white hexagonal ceramic tile floor with black accents were added to match the previously remodeled first floor bathroom. A new Restoration Hardware medicine cabinet, new fixtures, tub, and glass shower enclosure complete the new bathroom that blends seamlessly into the style of the early 1920’s home.

DESCRIPTION: Remodel two bathrooms. The hall and master bathroom were in good condition but dated and lacked functionality. We did one bathroom at a time to minimize disruption worked diligently to keep the home owner’s clean and tidy home clean throughout the construction process. We teamed the home owner with an interior decorator to help with color selections.
The hall bathroom received all new fixtures and ceramic tile walls and floor. A linen closet was created and an extra touch of class was provided by a Kohler Memoirs console tabletop lavatory.
In the master bath, the toilet was relocated and now the focal point is the stylish new double vanity, medicine cabinets, and lighting. The once dark shower is now bright and open with the new glass shower enclosure. The new ceramic tile on the walls and floor and in the shower make this previously dull bathroom a welcoming, comfortable bathroom within the same footprint of the old bathroom.

DESCRIPTION: Renovations. This 1950s era two story home looked out of place in the prestigious Eshelman Road neighborhood. New porch columns, shutters, light posts, a stone faced addition, wood carriage house garage doors, and stamped concrete walks and patio and landscaping did wonders to the exterior. Inside, the Master Suite was expanded ten feet into the garage to create a beautiful mirrored and tiled His & Hers Master Bath divided by a tiled, glass-walled, shower. His & Hers walk-in closets, a coffered ceiling in the Master Bedroom, and a six foot opening with Shoji Doors to Her Master Bath and closet area were also added.
Since the Master Suite was expanded into the garage a twelve foot addition was added to the garage using real stone that matched the fifty year old stone perfectly. The new garage, with its wood carriage house doors, also had a door added with space for the owner’s golf cart for convenient and stylish travel to the Lancaster Country Club. For entertaining, the small, knotty pine family room was expanded into the old jalousie windowed porch. The existing fireplace was retained, but is almost indistinguishable with a new face. The flat ceiling was removed allowing for a new sloped ceiling. There is a recessed area above the fireplace for a big screen TV and art work and new recessed glass shelving on each side of the fireplace with a wet bar alcove that complete the transformation.

Inside a new mud room and powder room were carved out of the existing two car garage, and the foyer, hall powder room, kitchen, and family room were all renovated.

DESCRIPTION: After completing renovations at their former home. We were called to complete several renovation projects to this stately home. The first project involved making two smaller bedrooms into a new larger master bedroom by removing a bearing wall which involved installing a concealed beam in the attic above. We also installed a triple dormer window which involved installing a beam to support the roof and construction of a new shed roof. Three additional bedrooms were reconfigured into a new master bath, his and hers walk-in closets and a laundry. The second project involved turning an existing screened porch into a sunroom with true divided light windows and natural finish cedar tongue and groove ceiling.
