Remodeling through the move

Relocating is never easy, but when you’re moving to a new state that’s 1,000 miles away there are bound to be bumps in the road.

We still had a large project, with three phases that started in January, and phase 3 needed to be finished while I had to be in NY for my new job, so we had to divide and conquer.

It was not easy leaving Chris temporarily behind. Being a single parent is unbelievably hard. There were days when there were tears…lots of tears, and then there were days that were ok. When an important piece of your life is missing it just feels strange.

The project he was finishing up was a whole house remodel, from floor to ceiling. The homeowners worked with a designer to create their dream house and it turned out gorgeous.

Phase 1 that was completed back in February was the half bath upgrade. They selected a dark wall color (Benjamin Moore – Raccoon Fur) with (Sherwin Williams – High Reflective White) for the crown moulding.

The new fixtures included a modern floating sink with all chrome plumbing fixtures, and a new one-piece toilet.

The floor was a Grecian white marble hexagon tile, Silverado grout with 4″ marble baseboard.

The mirror had an integrated LED light and we changed the overhead fixture to a can/fan combo.
