2001 Best Bath Remodel Over $50,000

This project was the remodeling of a master bathroom in an executive apartment. As with all projects in older downtown buildings, this one had its share of unique challenges. Constructed of steel beams, steel columns, structural clay tile arches, clay tile floors and clay tile walls, this 80 year old building presented a formidable contest for tradesmen. The tile floors and arches made relocating the drain almost a feat of magic, and the owner wanted to install exhaust fans where none had existed before.

Working with a structural engineer and 80 year old plans, they determined where they could core into the existing floor to relocate drain lines. The drilling required water for cooling and lubrication, so it was imperative to use a vacuum so as not to leak into the unit below.

The master bath is now light and airy, and the owners were thrilled with the outcome.
