It’s been a while since we posted much on our projects, so here is our Home remodel progress happening as we speak. Right before COVID19 Became a phenomenon that stopped much of the work here in Vegas, we began two projects. Luckily our clients were able to move into a different residence while we started our remodels.
By the time all activities were stopped around middle of March, we had already began the demo on both projects. These were projects with walls getting moved, deleted, flooring getting ripped out and readied for the new concepts. It took about a week for HOA’s and for the state to designate our industry as essential and as long as we maintained and followed protocol set by the State, we were able to continue with our projects.
This home remodel consisted of a total Kitchen and Master Bath remodel. Those are usually the most detailed and time consuming aspects of remodels. Besides those areas, there were some smaller walls and soffits to remove to create the new look.
The picture at beginning of post shows the kitchen area viewed from the Dining Room. There is a circular stone wall feature that encloses the breakfast nook. Prior to finalizing design of certain areas, its necessary to show the clients what the end product will look like based on their preference of material, height of walls, etc. The drawing below reflects the thickness of the new wall that will enclose the breakfast nook.
Eventually clients selected a thicker wall for this area.
Once the wall was removed and since the pad was round, the new corner had to be filled with concrete up to the original level of the nook. 2X6 studs were set in place to for the new walls along with all electrical wiring required for plugs. Once all framing was completed throughout this home remodel; master bath, kitchen and new walls. Next came drywall.
At this point, this Home Remodel is continuing with walls getting “mud” and next, will be painting of entire interior of house. We still have a couple of months to go before the entire project is finished.
