Alright so, although this post says Day 10, keep in mind that there were two weekends and 3-4 days when the contractor wasn’t working at the house. Also, the closet doors came in 3/8 inches “off” and had some other minor problems so he called the company and had them re-made. Another 2 weeks before those were installed.
Overall, the remodel was stress-less. Our contractor, Jackson Construction, was professional, offered lots of suggestions and kept all his commitments. Today, he called Kohler for us as the tub has quite aggressive bubbles and the “low, medium and high” for the bubbles don’t work. Kohler will be having someone contact me to have that taken care of.
Our contractor’s motto? “Anything to make the customer happy.”
So ~ here are the before and after pictures I promised you.
Okay ~ ready to see the transformation? This first picture was taken in the evening (I was playing with the flash on the camera.)
Here’s a picture of the tub area taken during the day.
Seamless shower doors … very nice!
Maple vanity (custom made by our contractor) and matching maple closet doors. The mirrors are from the West Elm store.
A different view of the onyx counter top.
Tub surround mosaic detail …
This turned out almost perfect. Looking back I would have added a double towel bar instead of an 18″one. We did have a robe hook added to the shower glass so it makes it okay.
I absolutely love the frame-less shower door and the contractor added an additional 5 inches to the shower area so it’s quite roomy.
The heated floor, especially in Minnesota, is wonderful to have.
Next year I have two more projects for our contractor ~ an upgrade (albeit much smaller) to the guest bathroom and a new front door.
I must say, it was well worth the money and working with Jackson Construction.
