Design – Previsualizing the future

http://www.wcontracting.net

Designing is one of the most important steps to take for any remodel project. Having 3d design of your project not only allows you to see the future but also helps to anticipate problems. As with any project, having a clear plan makes for a smooth project, and having your project drawn in 3d makes for a clear plan. As you can see in the pictures on this post, the drawings give you the ability to see the new bathroom from any angle as well as allowing for more accurate space planning. You also have the ability to see materials and colors as they would be in the new space. The advantages to having a 3d design drawn of your remodel as opposed to traditional elevations and cross sections, gives everyone a clearer picture of what your getting and makes communicating it much easier. 3d design drawings are a must for any remodel or any project.

Custom cabinets and bookshelves

Why take the time to get bookshelves built custom? Get exactly what you want, get them to fit a specific space, and get a higher quality, longer lasting product. Here are a few pictures of custom bookshelves built one of a kind for specific areas in these homes. Custom cabinets can be built to specific sizes to fit items in with the best use of space.

Designing your next project

http://www.wcontracting.net

Here are a couple pictures showing the transition of a fireplace remodel. We started with a simple sketch which showed the customer an idea of what we were going to do. Next, the work began with the demolition of the old faux brick paneling, installation and finishing of new drywall. We then installed new backer board where the slate would be installed and began setting the stone. We not only put the slate behind the fireplace but also across the front of the platform as well. With the stone inplace, we painted and installed the stained wood trim. I think this turned out great and the customer was extremely happy.

Fein Multimaster Demonstration

www.wcontracting.net

Today I started using my newest tool, the Fein Multimaster. This tool is an oscillating tool which is extremely useful in home remodeling and repair work. The Multimaster is equipped with multiple heads ready to do jobs from sanding and cutting to scraping and stone grinding. It is especially useful because I can attach it to my Festool vacuum system. This is a tool I will use on a daily basis for everything home remodel and home repair.
