Rebuild Blog #5
Hello and welcome to “almost” summer! We are running and loving how the economy seems to be turning the corner on home remodeling projects. A little bit of everything right now: additions, decks, concrete work, concrete counter tops, and the big 4-story remodel we have been on for months now.
Flying Pie Pizzaria has commissioned us once again to remodel the bathrooms and build some new walls at their Lake Oswego location. That’s cool to us because we have already done extensive work at their main Stark Street location. So this time around we will pour two concrete counter tops, one for each bathroom, and do some touch up and detail work with the partitions. As well as replace all the toilets with one piece Toto 1.6 gallon flush. Then we will build a new 15′ x 10′ dry storage room adjacent to the front counter to free up much needed space in the kitchen area. New acoustical ceiling tiles and fixes throughout. And finally knock down a wall at the pizza tossing area and build it lower so the shorter people that really enjoy watching that can finally see.
We will be remodeling a master bathroom in SW Portland which will involve gutting half the space, re-routing some electrical and replacing some plumbing, drywall install and texturing the entire space out so everything matches nicely once painted. We will install some travertine marble to the floor and base trim, tumbled marble to shower, add new door and window trim, and add an entire wall of maple shaker style cabinets that will maximize storage space. Finish it all off with a Kohler toilet, new towell bars, recessed vanity, and bright white paint. Now that Rebuild is on board, the client will be happy to walk in there every morning!
We are bidding a deck job up top of Vista which will be a retrofit to existing 18′ x 10′ with composite lumber. It rises 15′ off the ground on one end to 10′ on the other, a heavily sloped lot. TimberTech XLM is the material of choice here. We propose a 6′ addition the long direction and removing existing stairs and turning them from east to north. This should be a fun one with the City of Portland PDC.
The 4-story remodel on Alameda is really cranking now. We have Brazilian Cherry hardwoods going in, the first coat of Miller paint on the walls and ceilings are complete. The eaves and deck lids are finished now and they look awesome. I will post some pics on my “Exterior“ page. And the tile install is moving along nicely. Cabinets will be installed next month and the exterior painting should begin mid June.
Thank you for reading and as always, we appreciate the trust and support you place in Rebuild LLC.
