Green with Envy

This was our third project for these clients and certainly not the last as we have already started discussing the next one, we jokingly refer to them as one of our repeat offenders. After living in the home for a couple decades they decided it was time to add an ensuite, and while the footprint is not huge, we packed everything the needed into the space. We took what was once one of the kid’s bedrooms and turned it not into only an ensuite but also a new office space as well. The Ensuite required some creative planning to get plumbing from the second floor down to the basement as the bathroom was right above project #2 which was the kitchen. Working on site with Dan our foreman and Ferrin and Tim our plumbers we were able to hide the drain lines by modifying some original built-in china cabinets. See when you hire the same company to do all your renovations, they remember little hidden opportunities from earlier projects that they can utilize on the next one.

The ensuite has heated floors and the main floor area is Statuario Venato square mosaic, in the shower we installed the matching 12×24 in a stacked pattern complete with a built-in niche and a corner bench. The Base is a Fluerco composite white slate look base. The faucets were from Riobel and the sink had the cross-style handles which were in keeping with the age of the home. We use both of these manufacturer’s a fair bit in our bathroom renovations as not only are they well-made and guaranteed, but they are made in Canada which is important to us. The shower door was a custom glass slider with a decorative frosted glass.

The custom vanity was made in our millwork shop and finished in one of the most popular colors this past year, HC-125 Cushing Green in a durable polyurethane finish, the door style was chosen as it matched the door style throughout the home. Pay special attention to the vanity design in this project, you will notice something unique in the sink cabinet. We have been using this design for about 4 or 5 years, we move the plumbing up as high as possible so that rather than having the sink cabinet with just a drop all shelf at the bottom, we make it so that you have not only a full height drawer for storage and a functional shelf that’s easily accessed and used for those tall items that don’t always fit well inside a drawer. Again, this is one of the benefits of having a renovator who also has a custom millwork division— you don’t have to settle for what’s available off the shelf or online and topped with Noble grey Caesarstone from Coni Marble.
