Project Newman

On November 1, 2010, we started a kitchen remodel in Willow Glen known as Project Newman. This project has entailed floor to ceiling renovations, wall removal, and structural beam installation to support the 2nd floor above the kitchen. The remodel will be complete in the next few weeks. Here are a few before and progress photos.

And Summer Begins...

We have been non-stop productive in many areas, on many projects. This week in particular has brought us closer to wrapping up a few projects and beginning a new major remodel.

Project Brossmer in Santa Cruz will be completed tomorrow. This project included a custom slate shower outdoors. Our client requested an outdoor shower for easy clean up after surfing the waves. We were happy to deliver and complete the project on time.

Project Jacksich in the Cambrian area of San Jose is nearly complete. We finished installing the tile in the bathroom and will be completely wrapped up next week.

Project Ferrari, also in the Cambrian area of San Jose, is well underway. We completed the service panel upgrade this week, along with the plumbing for both the kitchen and adjacent laundry room. Recessed lighting in is progress today.

Photos for all of the above will be posted next week, along with more photos for Project Bergman, Project Denham, and Project Penhardt. Thank you for checking back with us and enjoy these sunny days!

Plentiful Projects

Here we are on the brink of entering a new season = Summertime. The weather is changing, and so is our workload. We are going from busy to busier! We currently have Project Jasksich in the Cambrian area in progress (Full Bathroom Remodel). We have Project Penhardt in downtown San Jose in progress (Full Bath Remodel, Interior Retexture/Paint, Exterior Paint, New Roof, Windows). We have just begun Project Denham in the Rose Garden area of San Jose (Extensive Landscaping, Outdoor Structure Design, Staining of wood shingle siding, Painting of house). We are also beginning the design phase for a brand new Kitchen, Living Room, Family Room, and Dining Room with Project Ferrari.

This week we completed the Project Clarke Master Bathroom with sign-off by city inspectors. Below are the final photos of the transformation.

Project Bragg - Progress V

Today we had a very successful Open House of the Rose Garden Remodel. The project is nearing completion and the clients are ready to move in. The kitchen is the main area left to finish, including: staining the cabinets, installing appliances, installing the backsplash. The backsplash is a custom design that you will see sketched in one of the photos below. Our next round of photos within the next two weeks will include the final shots of all the materials used.

Please take a look at the stage we are at now by viewing the photos below. To see our earlier progress and before photos, click here to view the previous blog that contains links to all the different stages in this project.

Project Bragg - Progress IV

Today we started a new week at Project Bragg in the Rose Garden area. We have accomplished so many things within the past few weeks, bringing us closer to our end of month goal. We have finished the baseboards, crown moulding, cabinets in both bathrooms, and installed doors throughout the house. The hardwood floors have also been installed and today the final coat was applied to a few rooms.

This week we are anticipating finishing the bathrooms by installing the countertops. Granite and marble will be going into one of each. The kitchen cabinets will be installed, allowing the rest of the kitchen process to continue moving forward.

As you can see, we have made significant progress since the project started in November. To view our progress in stages, please click on the following links:

- Before Photos (10/29/09)
- Progress I (11/05/09)
- Progress II (12/08/09)
- Progress III (12/30/09)

Below are some photos that were taken this morning. Here is the current status as we near completion in time for the homeowners to move into their new and improved home.

One of the most significant room transformations is the master bathroom. We now have his and her sinks and an elegant stand up shower with custom tilework. The space is much larger than before with this new layout.
