In this main floor remodel, Martin Construction removed a wall between the kitchen and dining room which ultimately opened it up to the living room, creating one large space for a much brighter and more functional entertaining environment that the clients desired. We kept in the era with the colors, door style, lighting fixtures, laminate countertops, & continuing the laminate material for the backsplash. We added marmoleum flooring for both the kitchen & bathroom, and we refinished the hardwood floors. We replaced all the windows and painted the walls and trim to complete the main floor.
“This is a nice little home that has been used as rental housing for a long time. The current owners are going to use it as a second home so they have a nice place to stay when they visit town, especially on game days. We cleaned up the whole main level, and paid extra attention to the bathroom and kitchen, modernizing them but keeping the 1950’s feel.” - Andy Martin
With the help of a very talented client, Martin Construction was able to take an existing cobbled-together bathroom to meet the era of the home. The homeowner used every inch of the bathroom, adding detail to make the most out of the space. We put in a new window, tile shower, tile flooring, recessed medicine cabinet, and a pedestal sink. We also matched the existing baseboard and re-used the interior door to be able to get updated hardware that functioned properly. Even in our smaller spaces, a little change here and there can have a massive and beautiful impact.
“This bathroom turned into a beautiful, usable space. Our clients put a lot of thought into the design, and we were able to get a little bit here, and a little bit there to make for a lovely room.” - Andy Martin
In this delightful remodel, we were able to completely renovate the primary ensuite, which included the bathroom closet, and laundry. By changing the layout, we were able to make the space functional and meet the homeowners specific wants while utilizing every square inch of space! The full height herringbone tile wall behind the free-standing tub is stunning, along with the custom tile shower where we integrated the blue accent tile back in. The floral wallpaper also adds a great burst of color as an accent wall. We put in a new window, tile shower, tile flooring, free-standing tub, framed mirror, vanity, and fixtures.
“Our clients had a cold, uncomfortable, uninspiring primary suite. They also had a fabulous vision! We were able to work within the existing footprint to create a vibrant, welcoming retreat.” - Andy Martin
In this 1960's ranch style home, we were able to add valuable space upstairs and down. We extended the kitchen to make room for a dining area and a bedroom underneath, while also adding a mudroom between the kitchen and garage. We continued the narrow strip oak hardwood floors into the addition, upgraded the kitchen cabinets, and added a geometric backsplash with a splash of color bringing a modern mix to a traditional home. We also added a covered porch off the dining room and a grilling deck off the mudroom. By adding all these spaces, this home became more functional and enjoyable for day-to-day living, and it will also serve as a great place for entertaining.
“This family has 3 growing boys, so they needed more room, and a kitchen upgrade. They love their neighborhood and the rest of their house, so an addition made sense for them. We were able to open up the kitchen, give them more space, and help them bring their style to their home.” - Andy Martin
In this remodel we took a 1980’s main level to the modern era, with the help of our designer, Suzanne Bradley, and the homeowners' beautiful vision. The walls between the atrium & under the staircase were removed along with the walls between the eat-in kitchen/family room, so you could see all the way from the front to the back of the home. The floating stairs & glass railing bring the spaces together and make it possible to enjoy the atrium from more than just one room. We faced the fireplace and surrounded the planter with slate for a cleaner look. The new mid-tone grey bamboo flooring helps to pull the existing oak trim in with the new modern tiles and freshly painted/reworked kitchen cabinets. We removed the wall between the laundry room and mudroom to expand the space while making it more functional for the family.
“When we opened up the entryway and stairs and updated the finishes on the main floor, it really brought this home into the modern-day. It’s more inviting and has much better natural light. It’s more open, but there are still distinct rooms for when this busy family needs a little space.” - Andy Martin
