Home Remodel

Remodel of Long Island home in 2012-2014.

Executed entire home remodel process with minimal assistance form others.

Honed a comprehensive mastery of skills in project planning, structural design/repair/restoration, electrical, pluming, windows and doors, insulation, drywall, arches, rounded edge corner beads, intricate trim work and designs, cabinets, sub-flooring, hard wood flooring, and even the furniture.

Home-making is so intricate that each project is a new opportunity to design and develop.

Greatest challenges included :

  • Severe structural termite damage requiring the construction of temporary support structures; needed to support structure while crucial load bearing beams are replaced
  • Construction so dated with drop ceiling, paneling, aluminum frame single pane sliding windows, and failing insulation, that a complete gutting and remodel was the only reasonable course of action
  • Cement slab and low ceilings (downstairs) requiring high tech low profile sub-floor design to support a beautiful hard wood floor with over four thousand planks of wood
  • Learning how to work with large cumbersome dimensionally imperfect building materials with no assistance form others
  •  Hurricane Sandy related work performed in addition to
