What do you think? Would you hire us? I think we’re totally burnt out on remodeling! Too bad because I have dreams for the other bathroom and the laundry room…not to mention the kitchen! Plywood utility panels to the rescue. They come in 8′ x 4′ sheets for around $24/each. After a little wood conditioner and stain, we ripped them into strips and nailed them right over the existing beam.

One of the challenges with a conversion van is figuring out where to look for parts and information; especially because our van’s previous owner couldn’t provide any owners manuals. The part of the reno that I found the most difficult was creating a new opening … Read More

We’re still putzing along with our little bathroom renovation, moving at the speed of almost-frozen molasses. For this post, I’m going to take you back in time (November) to where we installed the tile flooring, which has surprisingly been the easiest part of this whole adventure thus far (but certainly not without it’s own set of issues).

Bathrooms

With today’s bathroom remodeling designs, it’s never been easier to bring form, function and style together in your Long Island, NY, home. A bathroom remodel is more than just picking the right sinks, bathtub, cabinetry, and fixtures. You want a bathroom contractor who can re-imagine the layout of the bathroom and who can utilize the space to its fullest potential.

Probably people most often replace their showerheads because the existing showerhead doesn’t seem to work right, and the main symptom is likely to be lack of water pressure—and hence water flow—from the showerhead. This problem is usually caused by gradual clogging by hard water deposits. One of my bathrooms is tiny, so I can definitely use some help on utilizing the space I have. Thanks for sharing. Voted up!

How To Install A New Showerhead (2)

Bathrooms are no longer just an afterthought for modern homeowners. Today’s bathrooms are often beautiful, with user-friendly sinks, bathtubs, and showers. Outdated and obsolete bathroom fixtures are being replaced with chic and efficient new designs, making for the perfect marriage of form and function. One area that’s getting special attention is the bathtub-shower. Frameless shower doors are turning heads and changing the look of contemporary bathrooms. They’re bright and sophisticated, and they make your bathroom appear more spacious than it actually is.

Opt for simple tile designs instead of inlays and other more complex layouts. Not only do simple designs take less time to install, but you’ll often spend considerably less on tile, as well, allowing you to save about $1,000. Keep in mind, however, that your bathroom should be a relaxing and pleasant environment with a little panache, not something that resembles a hospital commode.

Basement Remodeling

A recent kitchen renovation project inspires new woodshop storage ideas for my garage: recycle the old kitchen cabinets into new storage space. I also like the idea of reusing as much salvaged material as possible to reduce landfill many remodeling jobs, the old kitchen cabinets do not retain any cash value and to the contractor, they are not worth the time and effort to save. All too often, the contractor rips out the old kitchen cabinets to make room for the new cabinets. Rather than removing the cabinets carefully for resale or donation, the old cabinets are broken down and tossed aside. Deemed worthless, the old cabinets are doomed to the dumpster and destined for the landfill.

Vinyl’s also really good because you never have to paint it like you do hardiplank The colors actually mixed in when it’s manufactured, so choose wisely. One thing to point out is that … Read More

Top Six Mistakes People Make In Basement Remodeling Projects

I have waited so long to make this post, and even though we are not done yet, I just have to share our progress.

Do put furring on your walls: the floor isn’t the only place where moisture can seep into the basement.

Happenings In The House Of Hoke

I have always liked the thought of having a spacious bathroom, one big enough to have a wicker armchair, lots of plants and a big antique chest of drawers to store towels, toiletries and anything else I might decide to keep in the bathroom. I’ve always liked the thought of it, but I’ve never had it.

Wonderful colors, the cabinets are so well painted (of course) and I love the glass knobs. What I like best is that the daisy girl REALLY does look like she has a secret! She was meant for that spot. I like the glimpse of the grey and yellow floral shower curtain (think that is what it is) also. in the past, refacing cabinetry was something you would only hire a professional to do. However, with advances in technology as well as a ready supply of materials (such as doors, veneers, trim, adhesive and tools), … Read More
