REMODELING

 

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.

 
 

THREE BATHS, NO TUBS
Cambridge homeowners asked us to renovate three bathrooms in their home. They had distinct design preferences for each of the bathrooms, with one shared request: remove the bath tub and replace itwith a walk-in shower.

Each of the rooms — a master, a children’s Jack & Jill bath, and a family/guest bath — was gutted and fully remodeled. We worked on the project with architect Michael Szalaji of Cambridge-based On the Boards Design.

Custom Fireplace

The Jack & Jill bath was one of two that needed to be expanded. We annexed an adjacent closet to provide extra square footage. This allowed for the comfortable introduction of a shower stall with a glass Dreamliner door and for the installation of a tall, semi-custom hamper cabinet. The cabinet and vanity were each fitted with Caesarstone countertop.

Custom Fireplace

The master bathroom also received an upgrade, with a new shower stall, baseboard and crown molding. The shower features decorative 5” Ogee Drop Tile, an accent border in Natural Stone Pencil, and built-in bench seating. The custom shower door, by Prestige Glass, includes a translucent privacy band etched across the center of the glass. For comfort on cold mornings, radiant heating was installed.

Custom Fireplace

On the third floor, adjacent to the family room, a third bath was remodeled. Like the children’s bath, the footprint for this room was also expanded by annexing closet space. We added a shower stall here too. Window glass in the bathroom window was replaced with tempered, frosted glass for safety and privacy.

CHIMNEYS AND FIREPLACES
Interior Restorations

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.
