Our 1960’s Remodel Continued – Master Bath Makeover

We are continuing our tour of the 1964 contemporary home that we introduced to you last week.

To help you understand how the master bathroom was restructured, I have included some before and after floor plans of this space.  The original bathroom was cramped with a double vanity, toilet and tub, all lined up in a row.

Ask Jake: Working Around Load Bearing Walls

 Jake,

I want to make a large opening between my kitchen & dining room. I do not want to tear down the whole wall. Does it matter if this is a load bearing wall? I'm also worried about electrical wires. My husband is a good handyman, but do you think he should tackle this job?

-Hilda

Hilda,

Yes, it does make a big difference if the wall is a load bearing wall.

Gorgeous Staircase Transformation

We recently completed a remodel, part of which included updating the main staircase of our clients’ home.

This update included new oak treads and risers, new carpet runner, wrought iron spindles and paint.  The change in this home is so dramatic that it seems difficult to believe that it is actually the same house we originally walked into.
