Drywall is one of the dustiest parts of any remodel or addition. To prepare for it the lead carpenter tapes off the doorways to confine the dust as much as possible. The drywallers then mud, tape and sand their hearts out. After the seams are taped and blended, the walls are ready for texture. Windows, cabinets, beams and doors are masked off to keep them clean from drywall overspray.
The next step in the remodel was cabinetry. As soon as the base cabinets were in, the countertop installer was able to template the base cabinets and start cutting and polishing the slabs offsite.
A unique feature in this remodel was the radiant floor heat that was installed to replace the existing electric baseboard heaters in the addition. The heating for the original part of the home is through hot water radiators. By replacing their existing boiler with a tankless water heater the homeowners were able to add hydronic radiant floor heat throughout their kitchen and family room.
