Stunning Kitchen Transformation – From 1990 to 2015!

JW Takes a Naperville Kitchen from 1990 to 2015

November 24, 2014

Our long-time clients in Naperville, IL were tired of their old, dated 1990 kitchen with grainy, oak cabinets and dark interiors. They approached JW for design ideas and remodeling needs.

We suggested keeping the old cabinets which were in very good condition and recomended painting the cabinets a beautiful Ivory color, adding a range hood and cool LED lights to open up the space and bring in much-needed light, and update the backsplash. Here is the before kitchen.

Week 1 – We removed the cabinet doors to be sanded, primed, filled, and painted at our workshop while we began the process by sanding and priming the cabinet boxes. Next we added wood fillers to remove the grains and finally painted. This process was repeated multiple times to completely get rid of the grains and achieve a gorgeous finish. Next, we added beautiful crown molding to the cabinets, and installed a sleek stainless steel range hood.

We finished off Week 1 by adding cool LED lights under and above the cabinets.

Here are some pics of the kitchen remodel in progress:

Once the tiles are installed, we will paint the kitchen walls and family room and unveil the brand new look. Here are some pics of the kitchen as we begin the tile installation.

We’re remodeling George & Megan’s master bathroom which will be complete tear-out including drywall from the walls and the ceiling.

We will be retiling the main floor and the shower, including the shower floor.

Sometimes, problems occur in a remodeling project. Over at the Waite’s project, during the installation of the drywall, a screw went into one of the water lines. Mr. Waite woke up at 1AM to go to the bathroom and heard water dripping and found out that water was leaking through the ceiling on the first floor all the way to the basement. He called the owner of JW Construction & Design at 1:09 AM. Mr Waite lives in Downers Grove, IL and Jay, Willans, the owner of JW Construction & Design, in Naperville. By 1:25 AM, Jay arrived at Mr. Waite’s front door, and oversaw all the damage that was created by the water damage.

The water was shut off, holes were put in the drywall to release the water in the ceiling & walls. Water remained shut off until 7AM and water was shortly turned back on once the crew arrived at 7AM at the Waite’s residence and fixed the hole in the copper waterline.

Here are a few water damage pics from the basement & dining room, which had to be repainted to repair the water damage:

Gorgeous Slate-Like Floor Tile Install

Slate-Like Tile Installation in Foyer & Powder Room

September 16th, 2013

JW completed a one-day floor tile installation for Jim of Naperville, IL. Jim had originally picked slate tiles for his foyer from Flooring Decor. However, due to the heavy traffic flows in the foyer area, he chaged it to a beautiful slate-looking procelain tile – a heavier dutu product.

We helped him design the 45 degree installation design to accomodate the perfect look for the area. We competed the installation in 1 day, using a speed-set product. We were able to grout and seal in 1day as well. The job was completed in 7 hours, with 2 guys working on the project. Total labor cost? $660.

Here are the pics from the project:

JW to build a Spa-like Master Bathroom in Naperville, IL

August 29, 2013

We’ve started work on Dan & Candice Richardson’s master bathroom. We will be removing all of the tiles throughout the bathroom. we will be removing and installing both vanities – one on each side of the tub. We will be installing travertine tiles throughout the master bathroom.

We will be enlarging the size of the sower, both in width & height, adding can lights in the cathedral ceiling, one each on side of the bath skylights and inside the shower as well. We will also install new plumbing in the shower to accomodate the homeowner’s desires for a spa-like bathroom.

Here are a couple of pictures of day 1 of tear-out.

Today, we enlarged the shower size, by removing a vacant wall. We had found that there was a laundry shute in the vacant area. The Richardsons were OK with us removing the shute completely, which gave us the ability to expand the shower an extra 2 ft. and we removed the soffit which gave us an extra foot and a half of headroom. We installed two 4″ mini shower cans and we installed LED in the cans to increase te brigtness of the shower.

On the primary wall of the shower, we framed out a shower niche, roughly a foot and a half by 3 ft. After installing new rough plumbing fictures, we closed off the shower with permabase & waterproofed the shower prior to tile installation.

September 30, 2013

The Richardsons had picked out light walnut bucak polished travertine tile for the shower walls with the tub deck and surround along with a larger sized light walnut bucak for the floor. We used a glass mosaic for a linear inlay around the tub area and full sheet for the back of the shower niche.

October 15, 2013

We are back at the Richardsons for the finishing touches of their bathroom remodeling project. We got dark cherry cabinets installed with granite countertops, new light fictures on each side of the mirror and we purchased new mirror frames to go around the existing mirrors to give it a brand new look. We will be posting pictures of the new bathroom soon.

November 5, 2013

We’re finally at the Richardson residence to take photos of their “new” master bathroom. Dan and Candice have now decided to remodel their hall bathroom. We’re now in the process of going over the fine details of the material tat is going to be installed. Stay tuned in as we start blogging the Richardsons’ hall bathroom remodeling project.

Enjoy the pics!

Just a quick update of last week from Dave & Phyllis of Naperville. Their shower panliner was installed with the rough plumbing consisting of showerhead, one handheld, and two body sprays. The tub was cracked and we’re waiting on the tub, so we built the tub deck and installed permabase on the shower walls and main floor. In the shower, we seal-proofed all the permabase on the walls by siliconing all the seam lines and protecting it by painting Proshield on the permabase. We installed 12X20 inch tiles on the main floor in a brick pattern and a porcelain 13X 13 inch tile straight pattern on the shower walls. On the main water wall, we installed a picture frame around all the plumbing fixtures. Updated photos of this week’s work will be posted soon.

May 14, 2013

The bathroom remodel is progressing really well. We’ve finished tile installation on the shower walls, shower floor, tub surround, and the bathroom floor. Here are some photos of the bathroom progress.
