Gove Restoration

Basement remodel. Completely gutted the basement to change the layout and increase the functionality of the space. Installed a new stair case with oak treads and an oak railing. New carpeting was installed along with recessed lighting. A hidden laundry area was also created.

We removed plaster from the walls and ceilings in multiple rooms in this beautiful historic home. Increased the ceiling height where possible. We also built a half bathroom on the first floor and made it blend in with the rest of the home by installing replicated moulding and various width oak flooring. Some other focal points of the remodel were a custom built fireplace surround in the dining room, custom designed and built chair rail in the dining room, new insulation where necessary, new sheetrock and electrical, and a fresh coat of paint in the remodeled rooms.

This is a kitchen we recently finished in the 1920s brick house. We completely gutted the kitchen and re-framed the two exterior walls. We insulated the walls and ran all new electrical and plumbing. Under the old vinyl floor was it beautiful Douglas fir floor. We patched in some floorboards an added a nice Rosewood stain. Custom cabinetry was installed to maximize the space and the radiator was removed and a toe kick heater was installed in one of the base units. We use the old location of the radiator to install a refrigerator surround and pantry. A matte white subway tile was installed along with a blue pearl granite counter top that had a honed finish. The trim was saved and reused where possible and we had new trim custom made to match the old trim perfectly . LED recessed lighting and LED ribbon under cabinet lighting was installed to light the space. The basement door previously had been painted so we stripped off all of the paint, sanded it down, and refinished it with a rosewood stain and an antique flat polyurethane. In addition to the kitchen work, the dining room floors were completely refinished and the walls in the dining room, living room, and stairwell were all patched and painted.

The Master Bathroom was part of a double bathroom remodeling project we were hired for. Our main concern was the goal of keeping some of the historical components of the house present while modernizing the bathroom. We started by removing all of the walls and ceilings and uncovered that the structural rafters of both bathrooms had been cut and mostly removed during the previous remodel. This subsequently weakened the roof and required the entire roof structure on this addition to be re-framed and made safe. We installed a new ridge beam and structural rafters. Once that was finished, we re-framed the entire ceiling and walls of both bathrooms. In the Master Bathroom, we kept the heart pine floor. It needed some patching in spots and we were able to harvest some floor boards from the attic and install them as our floor patches. A beautiful V-groove PVC beadboard wainscoting was installed on the walls and we custom made a wainscot cap out of Lifespan naturally pressure treated pine. All of the trim in the room is highly moisture resistant which is good in a bathroom area. A custom shower was installed. A tiled base was installed along with a nice granite bench, curb, and shelf. The granite had a matte, or leather finish on it which gave it some texture. We installed a nice shower niche for soap bottles along with a flush mounted shower head on the ceiling. A frameless glass door was installed as well. All of the window and door trim was custom made to match the trim throughout the rest of the house and we installed all new lighting and plumbing fixtures. We created a nice storage room off the bathroom and installed a weather-tight door which lead to an unheated storage space off the back of the bathroom. A beautiful double vanity was installed and the whole room was painted. This ended up being a gorgeous bathroom which had subtle historic components which complimented the new remodel nicely. The second bathroom the homeowner asked us to remodel as part of the double bathroom remodel project came out great. This room was also re-framed completely so that the walls and ceiling were square and level. The original walls of the home were built from random lumber so it was quite a challenge to square off the room properly. Hardibacker cement board was installed on the floor and on the walls of the shower. We used Hydroban moisture barrier on the shower walls to create a nice, watertight surface for the tile to be installed on. A beautiful tub was installed along with nice plumbing fixtures. The shower tile matched the floor tile and we installed a shower niche for soap bottles. We were able to frame a beautiful linen closet and we were able to order a door that matched the existing doors throughout the house. V-groove PVC beadboard was installed throughout the bathroom along with a Lifespan naturally pressure treated custom pine beadboard cap. New lighting, vanity, toilet, and sink were also installed. We finished off the room with custom made mouldings that were made to match the existing moulding throughout the house.

We had a lot of fun with this entire home remodel. We started by gutting the kitchen and removing all of the old hardwood flooring on the first floor. In the kitchen, we installed all new LED recessed lighting and under cabinet lighting, updated all electrical, installed new cabinetry, and installed a crackled subway tile back splash. Throughout the first floor, we updated all plugs and switches, installed new 4" wide oak hardwood flooring, and installed crown moulding. In the foyer, we installed a decorative tile floor which transitioned nicely to the hardwood floors. We used the same tile to re-face the fireplace and we also installed a custom wood surround it. Throughout the entire home, we installed all new, pre-hung, 6-panel wood doors and painted all of the ceilings. We also installed a new vanity and vanity top in the upstairs bathroom. We removed and completely rebuilt the hardwood stairwell and installed a craftsman style newel post and balusters. The same railing style was used for the balcony rails that were replaced. We painted all of the trim and walls throughout. In the sunroom, we sanded down all of the polyurethaned walls and trim and applied new, UV rated polyurethane to the paneling. We painted all of the trim in the room white to brighten the space.

This kitchen renovation really opened up the layout of this home. We removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room and built a high half wall with breakfast bar. We also closed off one entry into the kitchen from the front foyer. This enabled us to install cabinetry up to the wall which maximized the cabinet space. New insulation, electrical, and plumbing was installed. Recessed lighting along with curio lights were installed to light the room. We installed a beautiful island range hood over the range and finished the area off with some brand new oak flooring and matte white subway tile with grey grout for the back splash. We installed new matching trim along with a nice two door pantry door and painted the kitchen, living room, and foyer.

We opened the wall that divided the dining room from the kitchen in this Cape Cod style home. With opening up the floor plan and with relocating the entry into the kitchen, we were able to add a significant amount of storage space while keeping the spacious feel. A beautiful glass tile backsplash complimented the granite, while both recessed and undercabinet LED lighting highlighted all of the great accents. New hardwood flooring was installed. A crown moulding was added to the dining area and blown glass pendant lights were installed. Sheetrock was added to the walls in the entry porch and crown moulding was installed.

These pictures were just taken of a kitchen, dining room, family room, and half bathroom that we remodeled. The fireplace mantel and hearth were replaced and reset. New hardwood floors were installed. The overall layout of the cabinetry was changed and new cabinets, counters and a tile backsplash were installed. The entry from the kitchen to the dining room was reworked to look like it always was there. Crown molding was installed on the entire first floor. New lighting was installed and the bathroom was gutted and finished. Enjoy!

This remodel pays tribute to the classic 1920's style that was popular when this home was built! We were able to save all of the original trim and reuse it. We love being able to blend old materials with new and we feel it gives a unique look to a space. The white subway tile shower surround beautifully accents the classic pinwheel floor.

Completely finished this unfinished basement. A two room layout gave this basement great usable space. Due to the tight space at the end of the stairs, we designed a removable rail section so the homeowner can easily remove it to maneuver large furniture in and out of the space.

We completely opened the kitchen floor plan of this cape cod style home. We removed two load bearing walls and inserted structural beams. This enabled us to run the entire kitchen from the front of the home to the rear. All new hardwood floors were installed along with custom built quarter sawn oak cabinets which had a cherry finish. The two original built-in storage cabinets were salvaged and made to fit in the new space. A tumbled limestone backsplash was installed with a tumbled limestone listel. Recessed and pendant lighting was installed along with undercabinet lighting. Wainscoting was installed in the dining portion of the kitchen while crown moulding was installed throughout the entire kitchen space. A bank of closets was installed at one end of the kitchen which allowed for a enabled the laundry machines to be brought up from the basement

We gutted this half bathroom and turned it into a full bathroom with walk in shower stall. New tile with a glass listel was installed along with all new plumbing fixtures. The room was then completely painted.

Rebuilt a three season screened in porch to be a four season sunroom. Completely rebuilt walls, added cedar clapboard siding, and beautiful Windsor windows.

We installed a new ceiling with updated lighting. Installed a new tile floor along with new baseboard moulding. We took the dated wood paneling, lightly sanded it to scuff the surface, primed it with two coats of a special bonding primer, and painted it with three coats of satin finish wall paint. We installed carpeting on the stairs along with a new newel post and railing. All walls, trim, and ceiling were painted.

We removed an existing shower stall and replaced it with a beautiful cast iron tub. The old failing tile surround was removed and we installed a cement board on the walls. We then used Mapei AquaDefense to create a completely water-tight moisture barrier on the walls before tiling. We then installed brand new tile on the walls and ceiling, along with recessed shelving with a nice tile detail. The bathroom was then repainted.

We completely gutted this kitchen. We opened the wall between the kitchen and living room with a nice, spacious pass through which is trimmed to match the other openings in the house. We also installed a six foot sliding door on the rear wall of the house to let more light into the kitchen space. New custom cabinetry was installed along with LED recessed and under cabinet lighting. Black quartz counters were installed along with a beveled subway tile back splash with a beautiful sea glass green accent tile listel. Hardwood floors were installed and the room was painted.

Removed cedar shingles and installed cedar imitation vinyl siding. Installed new composite trim with built-in j-channel. Converted three season porch into a year-round room by re-framing the structure and adding double-hung windows.

Completely gutted this bathroom. Installed a walk-in shower stall with integrated bench. A heated floor was installed along with a beautiful custom built vanity. Mosaic vessel sinks were installed along with a tile wall insert. Marble counter tops were installed along with custom milled wainscoting panels.

Gutted bathroom. Added recessed shelving, heated flooring, and all new tile and plumbing.

Removed a section of wall to create a more open feel to this kitchen and dining area. Black granite counters and recessed lighting make the white cabinets really stand out. The porcelain farm sink was a great accent to the space.
