Titus Contracting Finishes Home Addition and Remodeling Project in Plymouth

Posted by & filed under Home Additions, Home Renovation.

Titus Contracting completed an incredible house addition and full remodel in Plymouth, Minnesota. Our clients had been considering a complete remodel of their home for several years. They had done plenty of research and attended many home remodeling shows to gather ideas for their dream home. In the summer of 2016, they contacted Titus Contracting for ideas and to bid on their project. After interviewing multiple contractors, they decided Titus Contracting would be the perfect fit.

Our project development process started in late summer of 2016, with the design process being the first step. This included getting together ideas for the layout, features, and finishes of the home. Titus then conducted open houses with our trusted subcontractors to help tweak the final design and get a firm budget together. Our clients accepted the final contract in November 2016, with a planned start date in mid January 2017. The exciting ground breaking of our clients’ new addition began in late January, despite the frigid Minnesota winter temperature, and their dream home project was under way!

This project was quite the undertaking. The new addition added almost 50 percent more space to the home, and the entire interior was redone as well! A complete lower level finish added extra bedrooms and a theater area. A full master suite was completed, including a large master bath with a free standing tub and a walk-in shower. The new, open kitchen design flows right into a bright great room area. In addition to all the fantastic new rooms and space, this home got all new mechanicals, siding, windows and roof!

Titus Contracting and our clients in Plymouth worked together to complete this amazing transformation. Our mission is to build relationships with our clients, and we always hope to turn them into not just our customers, but our friends. We enjoyed working alongside this family, as they provided fun and unique design ideas and finishes that truly customized their home.

Titus Contracting Remodels Log Home in Prior Lake

Posted by & filed under Before and After, Home Remodeling.

Titus Contracting recently completed a home remodeling project in Prior Lake. The log home presented some unique challenges, but our experienced crew was able to work with the space and create a functional design.

The homeowners came to us with three specific needs for their home. First, they wanted a total remodel of their master bath. Second, they wanted an additional bathroom on the main level. Third, they wanted to update their kitchen and the rooms surrounding it.

See before and after photos of the renovation:

Our team started by looking over the existing space, including the master bathroom and space surrounding it. By already having plumbing in this location, it made sense to add the additional bath in the same area. However, our experienced team had to overcome the challenge of adding extra plumbing, venting and electrical with the log home’s tongue and groove ceiling.

The professionals at Titus developed a plan to work with the existing bathroom space. They decided the separate shower area off the master bathroom, along with the existing large entry closet, could be used for a portion of the new half bath. Our remodeling crew re-worked the existing master bath to incorporate a large shower and free-standing tub with a tub filler (a big trend in bathrooms currently).

The old shower and toilet room was transformed into its own water closet accessed through the master bath. The master bath was updated with white cabinets, natural stone tile, granite countertops, LED recessed lighting and in-floor heating on a programmable thermostat. The new shower was surrounded by heavy glass and included a barn-style sliding glass door. It was also equipped with a shower head and hand-held with multiple controls.

The half bath was finished with hardwood floors to match the adjoining rooms. Stone countertops were added to a classy painted vanity, and the exposed tongue and groove ceiling was painted white.

The kitchen renovation required us to stay within the existing footprint. We rearranged the cabinets to create more storage and make them more user friendly. Included with the specialty storage cabinets were rollouts, soft-close hinges and full-extension guides. Stone countertops and a tile back splash provided an updated and polished look. New LED lights were installed under the cabinets with an LED dimmer switch allowing the light to be adjusted as needed.

Another update made to the home was adding new hardwood flooring in the kitchen, tying in with the existing main level floor to keep a continuous flow throughout the home. Also, the fireplace surround in the living room was resurfaced with updated stone, and pop-up stainless outlets were added to the floor.

The remodeled space met all the homeowner’s needs and provided them with an updated, functional space they can enjoy for many years to come.
