Galveston Kitchen Project

After Remodeling

This is an older Galveston home the Owners wanted to save some of the historical influences and at the same time give the bathroom an update.

The challenge was to cut around without chipping the original tile to save the accent border trim and the base trim.

The result was spectacular. My crew and I were extremely happy with the final product.

Client Review

We hired Scott & his team to remodel our 1937 hall bathroom. Our goal was to retain the unique, original trim tile, vintage authentic look & charm, yet simultaneously update from a traditional bath to a walk-in shower style bathroom, that would meet our needs. 

We are so pleased & thrilled that with Scott’s expertise and shared vision, we achieved our goal & our expectations were exceeded. We would not hesitate to call on Scott to help us with any future projects going forward.

Before Remodeling

This is the before picture of the bathroom. We removed the gas heater. We updated the toilet and installed a larger pedestal sink.

The bathtub was removed, and a walk-in shower was built. We also installed a beautiful frameless glass door fixture. The shower was transformed with the new work.

The biggest challenge was found in the shower walls. We discovered a two-inch-thick cement wall slab that was carefully cut out and around to save the border trim. It also gave us access to do the pan work, and the shower valve and trim work.
