Doing it the right way - from the start
This project took a great deal of planning and due diligence. The new drain lines had to connect to the house's main sewer on the other side of the basement (about 40 feet away), so we had to accurately determine the depth of the main sewer line and verify we could tie in properly with our proposed bathroom layout and drain routing.
This is not uncommon, especially for basement projects involving plumbing. The point of saying this is to point out that we did all of this before we signed a contract to do the work. We like to keep surprises and change orders to a minimum (zero is most preferable*), so we do everything we can to make sure the plan will work and that it is what the client truly wants before a contract is signed.
*Of course client driven changes are fine, though getting those sorted out at the beginning helps everyone. The changes we don't like are the surprises.
We recently completed a project creating a new master suite. The bedroom portion of this project was a facelift of a former guest room. The main part of the project was creating a new bathroom in an unfinished portion of the basement. The bathroom features the following amenities:
Maxx Rubix Soaker tub
Tile surround with accent
Dual-head shower (one wall mount, one rain head)
Open-bottom Bamboo Vanity
Custom Pental Quartz counter
Walk in closet with custom shelving
