Our contractors, Troy and Gordon from Northwest Home Concierge, did everything in their power to keep the job on schedule. We had functioning toilets, a bathtub and a shower as promised. The custom counters from a different contractor delayed installation of the sinks about a week. Gordon wasn’t happy with the trim in the hall bath so he sourced new moulding that looks like it came with the house. By the way, we found out that all the trim in the house is mahogany, doors too! We are thrilled with the end result and hope you like the look as well.
The hall bath - What was once pink, gray and tired is now bright, airy and fresh. The towel bars are original to the house and were saved from both the master and hall bathrooms. The medicine cabinet was sanded, repainted (it’s no longer pink) and repositioned in the new hall bath.
The master bath - When we moved into the Retro Ranch, Scott avoided this bathroom. We finally cleaned out the debris in the non-functioning shower and had a glorified half-bath off the master bedroom. This was the area that had most of the structural damage under it. Beth’s vision and design elements, and a glass shower enclosure with a sliding door make a smallish bathroom seem bigger than it is.
The second bedroom - You would never know that about half of the wall and the studs behind it were replaced.
We welcome guests and visitors now that renovations to the hall bath and second bedroom are complete. Scott’s twin brother, Angel Dorantes, was our first official post-renovation guest. He and Scott rode the Banks / Vernonia bike trail some 42 miles last Saturday.
At times it seemed like this project would never get done. In retrospect, the two months passed with minimal glitches and only a few smacks of a cold shower curtain catching both the breeze and your back-side. We love our general contractors and will engage them again next year to add a 1/2 bath to the laundry room. Now if Scott can just figure out where to store the spare rolls of toilet paper in the renovated bathroom...
