So, you want to renovate your bathroom ?  Perhaps your existing bathroom is ‘functional’, but you have decided the ’80s look is getting a little old.  Maybe you always dreamed about putting in a beautiful tile shower, with a bench seat and thick glass all around.

No question, a bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your house.  We can change it.

A GREAT process results in a SUCCESSFUL project

At the outset, the most important thing we do for you is to help you navigate the process of design and materials selection.  We bring it all together. It has been our experience, that the better the process, the better the plan.  Great plans make for great projects.

If you are serious about doing a bathroom (or any other room!) we invite you to take a look at what we do in developing a proposal for you.  The initial meeting typically results in design exercise where we produce a CAD model identifying each component of your new room.  From this plan, we develop a detailed estimate, a set of alternatives, and an actionable plan to implement your requirements.

I would be delighted to send you a copy of a proposal. Give me a call at 617-201-4375, and / or send me an email at davidRmurphy@gmail.com

A couple of things to keep in mind:

1. We can build it. We hold the following designations:

a. Massachusetts Construction Supervisor License

b. Mass Lead-Safe Renovator, registered with the State

c. Massachusetts Home Improvement Contractors License.

2. First we plan. All construction projects are about moving things from ‘A’ to ‘B’. Every component of your project needs to follow a path from where it is, to where it needs to be. Our plans are that specific.  Sub contractors love working for us because all the guess work has been removed. Everyone benefits from a great plan.

3. Execute. From ‘demo day’ to screwing in the final switch plate, we get it done on time and on budget. If you want professionalism, accountability, craftsmanship, and predictability to describe your project, we are the one for you.

New Deck, New Paint in Lexington

DSCN1330

 

This house is in Lexington, Massachusetts. The house was in need of a good washing as mildew had begun to grow on the house and trim.  Also, the deck boards had deteriorated, and the posts had been compromised by decay which made the deck of particular interest to the insects.

We washed the mildew off all surfaces, primed and painted all the trim, and applied two coats of solid body stain to the body of the house.

Products used:

Behr premium house paint, Kilz Premium primer, Paintable silicone caulk, Liquid Ceramic trim paint

Intex railing system, Advantek trim boards (where needed), Fiberon Castle Gray decking material, CAMO hidden fastening system

Of particular Interest: The railing system used on the deck is the highest quality PVC system available. All the fasteners are hidden from view – the systems uses thick aluminum channels embedded in the rails and solid PVC balusters.  In our opinion, it is an example of where a PVC solution exceeds the wooden alternative in terms of finish, durability, strength, and style.  Truly a premium quality product.  You can see these and more premium products at Forester Millwork in Littleton, MA.  Email Geoff Hadley if you are interested in these products : ghadley@forestermillwork.com
