Brand New Trane Heating Air Conditioning System Gas/Electric
Not the contractor’s grade but the step up: Trane XR grade with gas and electric heat pumps. When the power goes out the gas heat pump still operates. Still under warranty (Nothing runs like a Trane). First floor is a 2.5-ton unit, the second and third floor a 3-ton unit with upgraded thermostats.
The walls of this house have been insulated with blown in insulation. Notice in the utility room/pantry the round holes drilled into the walls. The drill holes in the plaster walls have been hidden with plaster and paint. The attic and crawl spaces have been insulated as well. Examine the exterior walls and see that there are not gaps in the original lap boards. Two men taking over a week of labor time have rehabbed these boards adding R value to the insulated walls.
The original windows have been repaired and reglazed. The weights in many of the windows have been restrung. Storm windows added for insulation but keeping the original style windows.
Brand New Upgraded Circuit Breaker Box
Installed is a Pro Grade (above the contractor's grade) Square D QO Box with upgraded circuit breakers. According to Home Depot’s site: The World’s Finest! Much of the wiring has been upgraded in the house with the original base board receptacles still working.
Beautiful Fireplace Mantel
The original fireplace mantel has been restored from being painted various colors over the years to its original wood finish. It has beautiful columns restored using a stain that brings out the wood detail. It has been lacquered to add luster and shine! Craftsman attention was given to this beautiful wood sculpture.
Spacious Remodeled Kitchen with ceramic tile floor and counter tops
Beautiful upgraded ceramic tile floor in the kitchen and utility/pantry with new kitchen cabinets and deep two compartment sink. Craftsman installed ceramic countertop adds style. Includes dishwasher and garbage disposal; washer/dryer hookups.
Repaired/ Remodeled Hardwood Floors
Take years old wood floors and start by sanding down to find the imperfections; from rough sandpaper to fine. Replace some of the old and reconstruct some of the board that needed repair. They do not make floors like they used too. Take the time to sand again using fine sandpaper then begin the staining and lacquer process. Two coats of stain with three coats of lacquer to give years of use and durability
Upstairs bath with Ceramic Tile and Re-glazed Claw Foot Bathtub.
The Claw Foot tub was pulled out of the bathroom and took to the shop where I could give this unique bathtub the attention it needed to get it back to its beautiful style. I installed a circular shower curtain just like in the movies. What a beautiful piece.
