FINALLY!! This is the bedroom side of the project!!! Complete project looks AMAZING!!! Now the client has a full size shower with a bench in the master ensuite, great size linen closet in the bathroom, new spacious vanity AND an awesome entertainment unit in the master bedroom with LOTS of shelves and storage space AND extra coat racks! Client couldn't be happier and this is the second project that our team has done for them and they've been "having many compliments" !! .
Once we removed the walls, we have to use the same flooring as we couldn't find that exact match anywhere! So we created the tongue and groove pattern on the existing piece and were able to create a perfect finish on the floor.

It’s been a few months since I’ve updated here! It was a tough call between pics of my baby Frances (who rules) or some renovation work. Tomorrow will be both! • • This completed renovation in Riverdale was a full basement renovation, where Team Faroe framed, drywalled and finished this custom work. We built the stairs after opening up the stairwell to widen the space, finished and trimmed; framed and installed three pocket doors and two sliding custom closet doors. We built a neat wine rack and framed-in some built-in cabinets. Vinyl plank flooring and full tiled bathroom complete with frameless glass. • • The main floor renovation work involved gutting the existing floors and subfloors to shim up, flatten and closely level for the beautiful new dark oak hardwood we installed. Second best and more cost effective approach to full on “sistering” new floor joists for level. We framed in and finished a new fireplace as well as the framing-in and finishing of the cabinets to flank the fireplace. Floating shelves here and along the stairs face-framed with poplar.

Old meets new. In this renovation where walls have been moved and redesigned, we are left with a combination of old and new construction. Dimensionally old lumber and new, plaster and sheetrock are not the same. In preparation for sheetrock it's important we make everything flush, like adding furring strips as needed so the finished walls are nice and straight!
