We were called into this project after the clients discovered a long working leak in their plumbing. By the time it was detected there was black mold under the entire Brick on Sand floor. In order to remove the brick all of the interior walls had to be removed. In all, the kitchen, living room, two bathrooms and a bedroom were demolished. Taking advantage of the freedom of a blank slate they hired the same designer who originally did the house and came up with a new plan which is where we come in. The Salamander Company was hired to rebuild and improve the original space. First, we poured a new concrete slab complete with upgraded radiant floor heat. We re-built the mechanical room with upgraded components and tied in the original hot water solar heat with the new system. We finished the floor with brick. With the clients in close collaboration, we upgraded the kitchen with new Alder cabinets and Granite countertops, a new Master Bedroom suite with walk-in closet and a beautifully tiled Master Bathroom. In all the new floor plan works well with the clients lifestyle and they have reportedly been warm and cozy all winter.
