The Whittig’s Master Bath Gut and Remodel
The cabinets are painted alder with a glaze stain and 2 coats of poly.
The mirrors are doors for medicine cabinets. When we reframed for the recessed med cabinets we found a wood pecker’s nest in the wall!
It completely changed the room when we removed the existing closet and the 36” shower partition wall.
We opened up the floor under the old shower and discovered that the 16 ft. 2×10 ceiling joist had been cut in half to make room for the plumbing.
Mrs. Whittig was a sweet lady that reminded me of my grandmother. She trusted me like family and I made sure everything was just right. I had to shave more often ‘cause she kept kissing my cheek.
Her kitchen was all white. The Formica counters were white, the appliances, sink and fixtures were white, the cabinets, tile, walls, windows, and trim were white. Needless to say, the lady liked white.
The tile in the entrance way of the large red brick colonial mansion was 3ft x 3ft. white marble with small 2×2” black onyx squares in the corners, laid on the diagonal. Very nice.
BUT…. she also wanted to make the new master bathroom ALL WHITE with BLACK SQUARES!.... Oh No!!!
My regular tile salesman and I showed her some white tiles at the show room and managed to get her look at some other selections.
Always good to have a professional second opinion.
Note: I never mark up my tile materials. I pass on my 10-24% discounted exact cost. I work with an allowance and show my receipts. I know it’s different but it’s a Huge selling point… takes the pressure off too. The clients love it and call me back.
Note: I never use credit to buy materials. I use a debit card and get money back. Credit will destroy you. I have 0 debt, perfect credit.
I know this bathroom looks “tanish” but it’s exactly what she wanted. I like it too.
Trust me, it’s better than all white.
