Happenings In The House Of Hoke (2)

Since I’m laid up for awhile from foot surgery, (I talk about that a little here ) things have been a bit slow around here in terms of creativity. I was completely unprepared in every way to a) re-injure my foot, therefore leading to surgery and b) stay off of my feet for more than 12 weeks. As a result, I’m kinda seriously lacking in the project department. So I thought I’d share our guest bathroom remodel from a couple years back.

With a 5-by-8-foot bathroom combining 1960s décor with original features from 1940, the homeowners hoped to renovate eventually, when they could budget it. They ended up acting sooner after discovering that mold in the bathroom was the cause of their recent breathing and sleeping problems. A house inspection team uncovered the mold infestation and recommended taking the bathroom down to the studs for full remediation. The couple took advantage of the problem to create a visually appealing, nontoxic and mold-resistant bathroom within the existing space. They tailored the bathroom to meet their needs while also keeping in mind future resale.

First, we knocked down the wall between the two spaces and relocated the door. We also removed two full size linen closets so we would have enough room …

Bathroom Remodeling & Renovation Services

Bathrooms have come a long way from being merely functional. If you’re considering remodeling or upgrading your bathroom, think about this – a recent survey found the average American spends more time per year in the bathroom than on vacation.

The job of installing our wall-mounted fixtures was tougher than it had to be, thanks to poor and contradictory one-size-fits-all instructions, metric fittings and duplicate and missing mounting parts. Prevent hard-to-fix future problems by test-fitting the actual fixtures when roughing in framing, plumbing and blocking to make sure everything will work out. Then finish the walls. When test-fitting, simulate finished floor and wall surfaces to get the clearances right.

CG&S does our share of straight-up kitchen and bath replacements, but we are perhaps best suited for more complex projects that call for more than refreshing tired finishes. With our architectural background, we are a perfect fit for designing and executing …
