Brita Avenue Remodel


Modernization of a 1950s rancher. Amenities include concrete countertops, floors, and walk-in shower. We vaulted ceiling with exposed beam to create an open feel. Custom refacing of fireplace with hand crafted carpentry features. An extensive list of fine details were used throughout this home. This client hired Band Construction, Inc. after a photo shoot at our Qualchan property.


 Living Room (above)

 A low flat ceiling and outdated fireplace were the issues.  Solution: Angled ceiling that did not disrupt the roof line, increased headroom, and improved acoustics.  The old fireplace brick was furred and faced with a veneer plywood.  The mantel is upheld by two tapered alder posts.  The original concrete hearth was refinished with an architectural grade concrete while in place.  A new gas fireplace provides a warm soothing glow.


Kitchen & Dining Room (above)

 The load bearing wall that divided the kitchen space was removed and replaced with an exposed beam.  A completely new kitchen and appliances are topped with custom concrete counters, steel corbels, and pendant lighting.  The ultimate kitchen floor is a .25" thick indestructable concrete finished to look like sandstone.

 A major victory for the rancher style home is an open kitchen, living, and dining room.  Note the improved space created by vaulting ceiling. 


Master Bath (above)

 Double lavs, new cabinets, mirror, lighing, and a concrete counter top were affordable upgrades.


Shower Grotto (above)

 What was a tub became a mudset shower with non parallel walls, angled shelves, and a seat.  The entry is a trapezoidal doorway into this fun and very durable shower.  The walls are a spray on concrete impervious to water and harsh chemicals.
