Avondale Interior Remodel
The homeowners of this 1929 all brick bungalow have lots of space but need the existing space to work better for their modern family of three humans, two dogs and a 1 kitty. In this renovation, we will be removing the wall that separates the butler pantry from the 80’s renovated kitchen to allow for a spacious and more welcoming cooking experience. The master bath and 1 small master closet is also an issue that needs to be addressed. Currently they both are way too small for a shared scenario. Revision plans now call for a walk in closet for his and her clothes and a 5’ larger bathroom footprint which will house a new double vanity and a walk in shower and lots of specialty lights. Lastly, the original maids bathroom (with toilet only) will be turned into a custom shelved pantry and an extra closet off the laundry room will be made into a 1/2 bath…complete with a barn door, wooden flooring and a brick wall which was recently found during demo by the electricians.
CenterBeam’s latest Master Bath and Kitchen Remodel
Bayard Place Gut and Remodel
This two story 1909 historic home boasting approximately 3000 square feet of livable space was in absolute chaos. It was overwhelming at first, but bit by bit, a plan was formed and we were able to reach the core of it’s natural beauty. With the higher ceilings, we were able to add beautiful door transoms which created a lot of natural additional hallway light. We stuck to the original design features of the house by building 9” baseboards, installing all new 5 panel doors (1 original door had been left on premise) refurbishing the original hard wood floors and custom routing and weaving in new flooring boards where needed. Many windows had new weights installed and 90% have all original wavy glass. Insulation and new A/C’s, ducting and gas appliances were installed for the modern convenience of a refurbished home but lots of love and care went in to salvaging the historical integrity of this beautiful home bound to withstand another 100 years. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
