Dale & Rea's Home Reno

The home owners decided to remodel all of the common areas in their lovely home. Thus the rooms affected by the change included: kitchen, dinning room, down stairs powder room, downstairs living room, front entry, upstairs family room, upstairs hallway/landing and the stairway. The home owners chose to take on most of the work themselves and contract out certain parts. Our task on this project was to do the drywall taping, sanding and priming in coordination with the other trades people.

In the downstairs living room and dinning room a special feature was added to the ceiling. A vaulted affect was created by building in a 6" drop bulkhead around the perimeter and in between the two rooms...see photos of the finished look. As for the rest of the project, our part was to tape all the new drywall, replace all corner beads with new bull nose (California corners) and repair (or should I say, resurface) all the rest of the existing walls. The 4' joint line that I talk about in some of our adds was extremely visible in this home...as many others in this area of Ontario.
