Project Leung - FINAL

This project was for a client who found us on Yelp and needed two bathroom remodels for their home in San Jose. We completed the work back in October 2010 and just recently were able to capture the final photos!

The client had already purchased all their materials for the master and guest bathrooms. The master bathroom remodel was a complete relocation and reconfiguration of all items within the space, including master closet that was previously located inside the bathroom. We relocated the closet to be within the master bedroom space rather than bathroom. The shower included marble with a custom glass shower door. The guest bathroom included tumbled travertine in the tub surround. We worked with homeowner to build a custom tile design using the existing materials she had already purchased. Here are the before and after photos.

Project Weaver - FINAL

Project Weaver in Sunnyvale CA found us on Yelp. They wanted a custom master bathroom remodel with a unique flair. We pulled in Caitlin Campbell of Symmetry Designs to help customize the redesign. Caitlin was the visionary behind the wave design in the custom tilework and worked closely with Connie Weaver to achieve a masterpiece. Connie put in countless hours of assorting the tiles and colors by hand, and created the wave mosaic herself! PortItalia then began the arduous task of installing the design. This was a labor of love for all parties involved, and the finished work is truly stunning. The shower door was custom made with a sand blasted band for added privacy. A structural engineer was involved for the shear wall with hold downs, and lastly, we included custom cabinetry for a nice finish. Here are the before and after photos:


Project Brossmer - FINAL

Here is a blast from the past! We recently came across some photos from a project from last year. In Spring 2010, our services were commissioned to build an outdoor shower for a client in Santa Cruz, CA. The client lives within walking distance to the beach and is a long board surfer. He wanted the ability to rinse off after surfing before entering the home. In order to complete the project, we had to pull water lines to the side of the house where the shower would be installed. This project included custom tile design and installation. Here are the final photos.
