Southwood Kitchen Reface and Bathroom Update – $32,500
This project had two parts: A shower update and a kitchen reface. We also updated the fireplace surround and added a custom corner hutch. In the bathroom we removed the tub and bottom 4 feet of tile. We then added a shower pan, tiled the bottom half of the shower in a herringbone pattern and added a glass shower door. In the kitchen we refaced the the kitchen cabinets, adding cabinets to the ceiling and added a customer corner hutch that matched the kitchen. We also tile the backsplash in the kitchen and retiled the fireplace surround to match.
The bathroom project took about a week and kitchen reface about two weeks including the backsplash tile.

Part 1: Tub to Shower Conversion: $12,700
We get a lot of request for tub to shower conversions these days. More and more homeowners want to get rid of the tub in their master bath and install a stand alone shower. Typically this means removing all of the tile and the tub. In this case however we were able to just remove the bottom 4 feet of tile and used a pencil tile and herringbone subway to create a nice contrast so that the change was not noticable.
Part 2: Kitchen Cabinet Reface: $19,800
The first step in this reface was to modify the cabinets so that they reached to the ceiling. Then we modified two of the base cabinets and added 3 drawers to each. Finally we built a custom corner cabinet for the dining room. After all the custom work was complete we refaced everything with new doors, drawer fronts and plywood.
The color is a light grey called whispering smoke with a pewter glaze from cabinet cures. The customer also chose an arabesque backsplash tile for the kitchen, corner hutch and fireplace surround.
