Rennovation and update of Georgian House in Houston
June 29th, 2011 at 15:05
- EcoHouse has just finished a remodeling of a brick home in Houston, Texas. It needed some updating and general repairs and some basic painting. The old windows were leaky and needed badly an energy upgrade to Low-e Argon filled vinyl windows and the doors needed weather striping. We insulated the attic and made a variety of weatherization improvements. Mostly, we gutted the kitchen and bathrooms and built new kitchen and bathrooms. The quarters or garage apartment needed serious work. We gutted the entire apartment and added a new kitchenette, fenced yard and fully glassed bathroom.
- The house is for sale now . See listing.
- We added a stone path and all new EnergyStar windows and peach paint to reflect the peach and apple orchard up front.
The whole house was refreshed with Sherwin Williams antique white wall paint with no VOCs. French doors were added.
We gutted the kitchen and job-built cabinets and laid granite tile counters. A new French door leads to a new covered patio.
New stainless steel appliances and a wine rack.
Glass front cabinets on either side of sink allow for display.
Full pantry cabinets and a powder room are off to the side.
We cleaned up the brick and replaced old square windows with full arched windows to open up the sunroom.
Both upstairs baths were gutted and retiled and refitted with cabinets and fixtures.
Martha Stewart provided the mirror over new, real granite counters.
The soaker tub was replaced and crema marble added.
