We finished up our work on the bath and laundry room remodeling project that we’ve been working on. This is in an older East side Northfield home that presented some challenges from time to time.
During the construction process we uncovered original oak flooring. The owners decided to have us do some patching of the floor and then refinish it. The result looks good and adds to the historic nature of the home.
The owners selected a solid surface material called Hanstone for the countertops. This is a very good looking product that is easy to work with. In the bathroom the lavatory sink projects out from the vanity and countertop.
We added some storage cabinets in the hallway and in the study as part of our work. The custom built cabinets match the existing cabinets in the kitchen. Beaded boards were used for the doors, again adding to the historic nature of the home.
One of the challenges in working on older homes is figuring out ways to fit new mechanical and electrical systems into the existing systems. This home presented a particular challenge in that it incorporates both a forced air heating system and a hot water heating system. We added new baseboard heating in the bath and laundry areas and also incorporated vents for air conditioning. But the mechanical room does get rather full !
