Charlie Allen Renovations, Inc.



Recent projects demonstrate that at Charlie Allen Renovations, itís not about project size or budget ó itís about finding smart solutions that accommodate your needs while maintaining your homeís unique character.


The front door of this South Boston home opened directly into the living room, letting cold air into the house throughout the winter and producing puddles whenever homeowners and visitors came in from rain or snow.  The kitchen, meanwhile, was a cluttered and challenging workspace.  The homeowners needed smart fixes that would produce big results.

Kitchen Restorations

We began by creating a foyer.  Re-orienting and expanding the coat closet, which had been part of the living room, allowed us to carve out a separate entry hall, maintaining the privacy of the living spaces when opening the door to strangers and giving homeowners and visitors a chance to remove outerwear before entering the home.  Slate tile better accommodates the wear-and-tear of foot traffic while a new Therma Tru fiberglass front door sets a stylish tone.

Bathroom Restorations

In the living room, a Valor gas fireplace insert placed within clean white cabinetry for electronics, games, and mementos, contributes to the new warm and cozy feeling.  The cabinets unite the living area with the bright and clean kitchen, where the same wood and paint color is used for new tall pantry units, wall and under-counter cabinetry, and an island.  Topped with a granite countertop, the island provides additional storage space, along with room for food preparation and support for dinner presentation.  The entry, living room, and kitchen walls were all repainted in subtle sand tones.

Bathroom Restorations

Finally, the partial wall that had divided the kitchen from the rest of the home’s gathering spaces was removed, allowing light from the kitchen’s expansive windows and glass doors to shine throughout.

The key to safe wood burning in any home is a proper flue liner.  The highest quality and longest lasting is a cast-in-place masonry liner.  Our poured flue lining system is a unique chimney lining process ideally suited to reline and restore old, damaged, or worn out chimney flues.
