Consider a Curbless Shower

This barrier-free shower floor is not just geared for individuals who have accessibility needs.  It is a seamless look that allows a beautiful transition from the main bath area into the shower area.  “Tuff-Form” is a preformed shower base made by AKW that provides slope to the drain and sits directly on top of the floor joists.

More Remodeling Fun from the Past: 1950s Design vs Now

Do you think things have changed much?

Kansas City Community Blood Center Remodel


We recently completed two bathrooms for the Community Blood Center (40th & Main). The bathrooms were enlarged to allow for a new handicap accessible bathroom stall in both the men’s and women’s restrooms. The Community Blood Center staff had some fun with the projects - holding a drawing for the “first flusher” (men’s and women’s) and they had a star-studded toilet paper cutting ceremony that was greatly appreciated by all.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We completed this kitchen remodel earlier this fall and it was such a delight to see that our homeowners are enjoying it and having fun with holiday decorating in their new space!  We love the red décor with the cream/blue/gray colors of the kitchen.
