Trim, Tile and Rebuilding a Fireplace
The work on site this week at our Glenview renovation is spread throughout the house. Tile work is underway in the 4 bathrooms that are being re-done. Our trim carpenter is installing the new doors, casings and baseboards. In the living room, the mason has taken apart and is in the process of rebuilding the original wood burning fireplace.
Back in the early 90s, I used to head down to the Building Department every Tuesday and Thursday to browse through new building permit applications.
With double pocket doors, you get the best of both worlds, the design world's version of having your cake and eating it too.
