Nevillewood Interior Niceties

Another past project that never made it onto the Blog was this beautiful space in Nevillewood.

The original trim had been given a very poor "distressed" look. Well at least we hoped they tried to do this!

With the green walls, the new owner was feeling pretty ill.

We started with a good preparatory sanding and cleaning then off to the prime coat.

The top coat applied was Sherwin Williams Pro Classic

Next we began to eliminate the green that was so despised by the homeowner. Fortunately she could see past the color to the space instead.

more gone....

and completed.

Great sitting area on the balcony.

Believe it or not, this angled part of the ceiling was painted green too!

Here is the Den which was a putrid pink!!

Much better now, you can enjoy the fantastic woodwork instead of being drawn into the awful color.

The dining room was black, so this wonderful light yellow was quite the contrast.

Thanks to Sherwin Williams ProBlock for covering those walls!

And yes, the green is out of the halls too!!

Bathroom Remodeling in McMurray

Bathroom Remodel
Here's a spiffy bathroom renovation we were able to do for a great couple out in McMurray PA. This is a photo of the completed project and we'll continue with a walk through the process.

This was what we had to start with.

Dated tile, shower door, color scheme...


and water damage too. The goal was a new tile floor and shower along with new toilet, vanity and fixtures.

Bathroom Remodel
Everything starts with demolition!

Bathroom Remodel
Once the tile floor was out, the sub-floor could be assessed.

Bathroom Remodel
We removed a waterlogged section of the floor and unfortunately the wall it supported. Our plumber capped the supply lines and we began the rebuild process.

Bathroom Remodel
Once the new sub-flooring, wall and plumbing was back in place the new TileRedi shower pan was installed. This is a wonderful product for tile bases!

Bathroom Remodel
The existing walls had lots of texture from previous wallpaper removals so we replaced the damaged ones to save time in the long run. Here the new drywall and cement board for the tile are being installed.

Bathroom Remodel
Walls are in and primer is going on!!

Bathroom Remodel
Primed, and ready for paint and tile installation.

Bathroom Remodel
Shower flooring goes in first and then the step. We had a great piece of marble cut for the job at the Stone Connection out on Neville Island. They do quick wonderful work!

Bathroom Remodel
Next the walls go up!! On the edges we used metal track for a crisp finish.

Bathroom Remodel
Last, the flooring. Sorry the photo isn't fantastic but the floor is!

Bathroom Remodel
When the vanity was fitted in place, the supply lines were half an inch to short!! That's when you get in a good plumber to add an extension. A shark bite fitting would have been below the cabinet base height so not an option.

Bathroom Remodel
However, a little patience and there you have it!

Bathroom Remodel
New lighting and mirror installed too!

Bathroom Remodel
The final step was this really sweet barn style glass door from Rex Glass. They were very professional to work with from start to finish.

Bathroom Remodel
Thus another fantastic job done and with a great deal of satisfaction and happy customers, we can move on to the next one!!

Painting Turned Remodeling In Upper St Clair

We had fun on this painting turned remodeling job!Painted the old greens and yellows to current greys.

Trim bright white! Makes a classy fresh look.

As always the prep work includes patching holes. Usually from where old paintings and window treatments were hung.

Then a good coat of paint.

The bathroom was going to be painted until we convinced the Mary and Dan that it would be best to remove the dated lighting, vanity and cabinets.

So, away we went! removing it all....

and replacing it with a clean white and grey look. The original orange tile accents were an awesome touch!

Another great finish!


Ye Olde Bathroom Renovation

Here's a beauty we did this past Spring, Before and After

Started with finding new holes behind the large mirror.
Removed old Reznor wall heating unit, toilet, vanity and accessories.

Fun part was replacing the tile where the wall heater came from. We carefully extracted existing tile from the space where new vanity would go.

And insert old tile! Notice the holes in wall from old toilet tank which was screwed into the old tile. We filled and grouted them to be touched up in the final phase.

Here is another angle of the completed job

All walls and ceiling were painted with Sherwin Williams Duration to hold up in the changing climate of a bathroom.

The trim was painted with Sherwin Williams Pro Classic for its durability.

Final touch ups included matching tile color as close as possible to cover holes in our green tile and also three holes in the black.
