W.N.C. Remodeling L.L.CContractor in Weaverville, North Carolina
BASEMENT BEDROOM & BATHROOM ADDITION
Bathroom remodels are second to none of the other home remodels in cost per square foot to do. But bathroom remodels provide the top money returns on your investment (R.O.I.), along with being one of the top things buyers look at in a house, once they have chosen a neighborhood.
This remodel was made complicated due to the fact that the concrete slab had to be cut to attach the sewage lines; along with removing parts of the walls and ceil...ing to gain access to existing water lines. Also there was a complete new design layout taking one wall down and expanding the room a converting it into a bedroom. There was a dividing wall added to divide another room and adding a large closet to the bedroom and bathroom addition. The existing wood double door was changed over to a full double pane, low-E coating, gas filled, French Door with mullions. Above the door there was a fixed window added, for this there was some structural work that needed to be done, a 2” x 12” header was installed above the window to take the load off of it once the framing was removed. Venting going outside needed to be added for the new bathroom, along with all new lighting and a radiant floor heat system was added under the new ceramic tile floor, a wooden floor matching the adjoining rooms was installed in the bedroom area. Matching multi-tiered crown molding was added to match the existing crown molding.
COMPLETE BATHROOM REMODEL AND EXTENSION
The entire footprint of the bathroom was changed and extended into another room. The Town House was built in 1974, and y...ou can see it from the before pictures. The ceiling was converted into a Bevel Tray Ceiling to add height to the bathroom, leaving a 12" flat border around the perimeter of the Bevel. The tub was moved to the side of the bath so a wall was opened up to make room for the tub. To add contrast I added double arches above the tub, one that is appropriately 6' wide at the start. The other starts just behind it going the rest of the way to the wall. The tub is under mounted to a solid single slab of granite. The tile pattern changes as it goes up the wall to the mosaic ceiling.
BASEMENT BATHROOM ADDITION
Once again, bathroom and kitchen remodels are the costliest remodels per square foot to do. But these two remodels provide the top mo...ney returns on your investment (R.O.I.), along with being the top two things buyers look at in a house, once they have chosen a neighborhood.
The reason that bathrooms and kitchens are so costly is the mere fact that they are the most complex to renovate (i.e. design, layout, plumbing, electrical, framing, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, venting plumbing and bathroom exhaust).
The photos are of a bathroom addition done in a basement, which had no existing plumbing except for a sewage line in the ceiling under a small soffit box. Once the space was outlined, we started covering all of the furniture with plastic and the floor with tarps. We used a dust remediation system to control all of the dust that is created especially during the demolition and the concrete cutting phase, but was used daily. We then started to remove the walls, frame out the walls, cut out the existing cement slab, installed underground and in- wall plumbing and electrical, re-poured the cement slab and insulated the walls. As you can see the finished product has a corner soffit with an access door, hiding the underground sump pump with an alarm. The job was delivered ahead of schedule.
Home Projects With The Most Return
Hired to fly to Madrid Spain, then travel to Cadiz Spain, to work on the world's largest privately owned ship named "MV THE WORLD" -Residences at. While the shi...p was in dry dock, I did the installation of Syrian Shell Stone floors in privately owned luxury suites. Do to Ship Security and customer confidentiality, we can not show any pictures of the inside of the Ship or Apartments. These are a few pics of the trip, locals and food, there are to many photos to post them all. A big thank you goes out to the GC that took on this huge project, I can't mention names but you know who you are : )
