Renovated Multiple Rooms
Renovated Multiple Room Along With Total Interior and Exterior Overhaul:
Original house was built in 1905 with 950 sq ft, however multiple handyman additions and conversion of the garage for previous owners came to a total of 2200 sq ft. Iit had popcorn ceilings, patterned wallpaper. The Bathrooms and kitchen were really old and falling apart. Roofs were leaking. Flooring caved in, had a hole in the bathrooms. Cables were hanging out everywhere all the wiring was pretty much condemned. It was still really grand and beautiful but in absolutely awful shape.
Extend the overhaul footprint of this house by adding extra full bathrooms, kitchen and closets along with new paint inside and out.
To pull off that handcrafted vibe, DFW Remodel Team cleverly deployed The Structural and Architectural team together. First Vino the GC refined structural changes, starting from securing Foundation, Floor decking, Walls, Beams and Roof.
This is an extensive foundation repair, including lifting up the house to install new foundation piers to level it out and reinforce the existing foundation.
Modified and replaced all Heating, cooling, ventilation and exhaustion.
Wiring is subject to safety standards for design and installation so we replaced almost all electrical.
The scope of standard residential plumbing usually covers mains pressure potable water, heated water, sewerage, stormwater, natural gas. This house main drain to the city sewer was broken due to the tree roots. We ended up chopping trees, Digging 150 ft long 6 ft deep trench and replacing old cast iron 3 inch broken line with 4 inch PVC. New pex hot and cold water line as well.
After foundation lift most of the existing decking was installed because of homeowners request installed owner supplied materials without subfloor.
Moved and rebuilt multiple walls on all bathroom kitchen and living rooms.
Install new rafters and beams from top after removing roof decking.
Remove existing 3 layer shingles, replace decking and Installed new 30 yrs shingles.
Along with GC all the Install project managers worked very closely with the Supervisor. Edwin The IPM Scheduled and implemented the Architectural and Design aspects of this project.
Kitchen : Modern soft close cabinets
Countertops: Granite with large farm sink
Bathrooms: Large walking showers
Floors: New carpet on all bedrooms and hallways. Vinyl on living and kitchen area and tiles on bathrooms.
Drywall: New protective mold proof drywall on all bathrooms.
Paint: Antique White: Because it’s so flooded with natural light.
Faucet & Appliances: Mid grade nice Black appliances and Fixtures; where you see them, but where you don’t see them, we’ve gone for lower-end ones that are functional. There’s no point having something super expensive that does the same job as something that costs a lot less.
Lighting: Recess cans and ceiling fans
Exterior doors 4 of them replaced with weather fiberglass.
Most bonkers splurge: The priciest items were the Adding completely new full bathroom, Farm sink with granite countertops.
Sneakiest save: We’ve worked on enough total home remodel projects, so we tried to replicate what makes them look good but using cheaper products. We wanted it to be a harmonious design as well as functional.
The Best Part: Our favorite part is the Main oak Living room because it is separated with different doors however connected to the kitchen and has the outside view and fireplace.
What I’d never recommend again: Puting the new vinyl floor straight on top of the old floorboards instead of putting down a proper subfloor. Homeowner got free flooring materials from a friend because of that, we can feel the old floorboards moving up and down beneath this new floor. That was a saving we shouldn’t allow our clients to have.
Final bill: Total project ended up 17% less than expected budget of $98,000.
Timeline: From planning, Design, Demo and rebuilt took 96 days
