May 2015 2nd Story Addition, Louis St, Mt. Prospect, IL.
This is one of the largest projects we have completed. It’s a 1,200 sq feet 2nd story addition with three extra bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry, staircase and a 2-story foyer. That includes a master suit with a master bath. both baths were tiled with combination of ceramic, marble and glass mosaics. The entire 1st floor was also gutted and up remodeled. Because of additional bathrooms, the water service was increased to 1-1/2″ copper tubing. The second floor has its own furnace and air-conditioning system with a separate thermostat. All electrical wiring was replaced and new 200 amp panel installed. Hardwood flooring was installed/refinished throughout the house, no carpet here. The attic was insulated with with blown insulation of R-49 value and new and existing walls with R-13.
January 2015 Room Addition, Mt. Prospect, IL.
We just finished a small addition at Willow Ln in Mt. Prospect. We added a room 12′ x 14′ in the back of the house and relocated entrance to existing bathroom. The project included excavation, foundation, framing, electrical, insulation, drywall, flooring ,taping, painting and interior woodwork such doors, windows, baseboards and casings. The exterior work: laying bricks on all three new walls, installation of shingles, soffits, fascia, gutters, downspouts and rebuilding some of the existing deck. We demolished part of existing brick wall in order to make openings for future doors. In the process, I learnt that there were new restrictions when it comes to insulation. Turns out the new building code requires R-49 from previous R-38 value in the ceiling. Also, the concrete slab has to be insulated as well. Despite cold weather the addition was finished on time so the owners’ kids can have a play room for themselves.
November 2014 Master bathroom remolding, Grayslake, IL.
We have combined a walk-in closet into a master bathroom. New location for the toilet, soaking tub, vanity and custom shower. Serious plumbing challenge, we couldn’t use existing waste lines or supplies. We changed all electric since the new bath has a different floor plan. Travertine subway tiles took awhile to install. Custom shower has a bench and a large double niche. Custom vanity with with sinks just made that bath look even better.
