Granville Street

Challenge

Call TOTL Building & DesignThis one was pretty straight forward: the main bathroom in the 1910 home was simply falling apart and needed a completed makeover.

Solution

The solution, after going over many different versions and looks with the Harrison family, was to go for a complete overhaul from ceiling to studs. With the addition of modern day materials, but in keeping with the look of old school tile, fixtures and glass, we were able to create a new environment, extremely modern functionally, but had the old style and look, in keeping with the 1910 style home.

Challenge

Call TOTL Building & DesignIn discussing the project with the Freihlick family, we found they has a broken Jacuzzi tub, which was something that they just never used. There was also an issue with a leaking shower, where water was seeping through the wall tile, as well as the shower base. And one of the biggest issues was the bathroom was so very cold, especially in the winter months.

Solution

After much consultation, the solution was something that excited the Freihlick’s, and the end result was greeted with even more applause. We installed a complete heated floor system, then supplied and installed a large two-person acrylic bathtub, then installed a deluxe glass shower with bench seating. Problem solved with this wonderful, warm and esthetically pleasing new bathroom space.

Challenge

Call TOTL Building & DesignIn working with this bathroom renovation, the biggest issue was that it was just plain old, and because of this, the bathroom had mould. One of the sources was a lack of ventilation, and the vinyl floor tiling was beginning to lift.

Solution

The solution was to go in a gut the room, with a full removal of the entire bathroom fixtures, cabinets, shower and toilet, as well as all the rotten materials. We then were able to work with the family in choosing a very decorative, modern style bathroom décor, which was extremely functional, with plenty of outside venting for the glass shower, complete with a rock feature, and sleek slate tile flooring. Converted to a modern style usable bathroom with venting for glass shower.
