HOMEOWNERS WITH HOMES BUILT PRIOR TO 1978, PLEASE BE ADVISED – Federal Law & the EPA require us to inform you that if your home was built prior to 1978, you are to at least assume that it has lead-based paint in it. Any contractor you hire should be certified by the EPA and comply with the RRP Rule. Lou Vaughn is a Lead Certified Renovator (See credentials below). What does this all mean for the homeowner? With the RRP Lead Rule compliance practices, there is some additional demo cost involved outside of the ordinary demo cost. In some cases, the homeowner may do the removal themselves.
We Finally Decided To Remodel The Upstairs Bathroom!
We here this more often today. With the home shows and home improvement retail stores, there is so much beautiful bathroom products to choose from! There is enough to choose from on the market to combine and accommodate everyone’s design feel. Due to this, we really enjoy the bathroom remodeling projects simply because it is really painless to please couples and their family! Some of the types of products involved are, marble tile, vessel bowel sinks and new and faucets designs. These designs consist of profile curves and lines that has the chrome finish the number one choice in finish today!
Can We Tile Over The Existing Tile?
The answer to that question is yes, most of the time! The only time we don’t recommend in doing so is when we see that it would not hold up as a lifetime lasting investment! If we find the condition of the existing is suitable, with some prep to the existing tile and special blend thinset designed for this application, it can be done! When this option is being considered, the question is now what to do about the transition from the higher floor than the hallway? Here we show one of our wood thresholds custom tailored and developed onsite. This is just one option, but its the most popular due to its gradual feel and appearance!
Project Objection: Open concept & good quality constructed cabinetry, and completed according to the budget!
ELECTRICAL – 6 dedicated electrical circuits to upgrade to current electrical appliance standards.
PLUMBING – Upgraded to accommodate dishwasher & disposal into the design.
BEARING WALL – A bearing beam was positioned to replace a bearing wall that divided the dinning room and the kitchen. Typical for an old Cape Code Home!
FLOORING – Achieve a smooth transition, “created one elevation”, from new kitchen tiled flooring to the existing rooms hardwood flooring. Old flooring was removed all the way to exposing oak floor joist. Floor joist where shimmed due to inconsistent elevations from one to another.
SOFFIT REMOVAL – Removed soffit to accommodate 42 inch tall cabinets.

We are removing of bathtubs today for the accommodation of a very comfortable shower size! This opens the width up to be around 60″. The standard size and comfortable depth is a minimal of 36″ from back wall to the shower door and glass! Often this involves moving a toilet a little away from the shower to accommodate the minimal of 36″
When working with design space for your toilet placement, the center measurement of the toilet to bathtub, vanity or wall must be at least 15 inches! Total space is a minimal of 30 inches!
Shower Design Considerations To Consider
Shampoo & soap niches should be as far away from the shower head as possible. When the design dynamics dictate the location being near the shower head area, keep the niche as high as possible! This approach is to keep your soaps fresh!
