These homeowners discovered the excitement of having a hot
feed line burst in their laundry room. The room was flooded
hot water. Nick Milo Design Construction (NMDC) was able to come out within a couple of days
the problem occuring. They removed the old flooring, planed
down a board which had been damaged by moisture from a previous leak, and
installed the new flooring
in one day. The homeowner repainted the room and within a
from the time of the rupture, their laundry room was completely
functional again. (Public Service Announcement:
to a washing machine should be routinely inspected, and metal mesh
reinforced lines are highly recommended.)
1960s era house had an original three wood panel entryway.
had cracked from lack of care and some of the panels were loose in the
framing. The all red panel is the actual front door.
The windows are
in the kitchen, and due to a DIY cabinet replacement, the sills were
several inches lower than the countertops, allowing water to penetrate
both the window casings and the cabinets from the kitchen sink.
siding on the house was also rotten to roughly waist height in spots
(notice in the Exterior before photo that the siding under the hose has
rotted away completely near the ground). NMDC removed the
door, framed in a wall on either side of the new door frame, replaced
the front door, replaced the windows with slightly smaller ones,
removed the rotten siding, resided the house, and gave the whole thing
a more modern paint job.
The previous owners of this house enjoyed DIY projects,
this fireplace surround they put together using greenboard, chicken
wire and spackle. The current owner thought something a
less "DIY" would improve both the appearances of the room and the
functionality of the fireplace as a heat source. NMDC removed
previous fireplace surround, hearth, mantle and gas log, only to find
that the flashing on the roof had rusted through. Work was
stopped until the interior wood dried out, and new flashing was
fabricated and installed on the roof. A furnace rated
fireplace and a travertine surround and hearth were installed.
NMDC made and installed a new mantle, as well as installing
can lights for extra lighting.
