Stunning Tudor Style Home Renovation - Not To Be Missed...

This was a whole house remodel that we recently completed.  This design + build project started with the client inquiring about new countertops.  It quickly blossomed into a whole house remodel including a new laundry room, three bathroom remodels and a beautiful kitchen remodel The construction project included removing a load bearing wall in the kitchen, relocating the laundry room, creating curbless showers in the two upstairs bathrooms, and designing and building beautiful touches throughout.  We want to thank so many people for their amazing contributions including Julia at Plumbed Elegance, Isabelle at Illuminee, Alan at Built In Distributors, Kate Falconer for her amazing photography and all our talented subcontractors.  Their creativity, vision and technical knowledge helped shape this beautiful home.

Sneak Peak - Stunning Tile in Master Bathroom Remodel

We are finishing up a stunning kitchen and bathroom remodel and I just can't get enough of this beautiful Walker Zanger tile, so I had to post a few sneak peak photos.  This is an elegant water jet cut marble and porcelain tile that we used in the niches and floor.  We installed a curbless shower with a linear drain to extend this beautiful tile into the shower.  The bench seat is a stunning piece of Calacatta marble we hand selected.  More photos will follow once we finish up.


The Deeper Meaning of Remodeling - Real Life Images

We feel so blessed - we not only get to design and build beautiful spaces for our clients, we also get to build amazing relationships.  We love our job!  We love to see beautiful lighting that makes a family feel warm and comfortable in the evening, an island that everyone gathers around to share meals, ideas, and stories, a deck that lights up at night that allows families and friends to gather outdoors while still feeling warm and comfortable, and so many small and large details that go into making a family feel safe, warm, comfortable, and inspired by their home.  Here we share a few images from our new series "Real Life Remodel".

Party Central - What an island, what a spread.  Our client's birthday bash.

Another birthday is almost over, but not quite.  Parties are is life at times.  Thank goodness for big islands and great lighting!

Dreaming of Redwoods - Custom Crafted Platform Bed

We recently completed this stunning bed for one of our amazing clients in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  A redwood tree fell in their backyard during their kitchen remodel.  We cut the tree into slabs, kiln dried the wood, and magically crafted this stunning bed with the help our of custom woodworker, Andy Orsini.  For a link the process, see our previous blog post, "A Tree's Journey - Crafting a Custom Bed".

We wanted to share photos of a recent bathroom renovation. We love how this stunning bathroom came to life, from the design all the way to the finish. It was an amazing collaboration between A D Construction, creative and thoughtful homeowners, and amazing craftspeople. The bathroom includes beautiful vertical glass tile feature strips repeated in varying widths, thick countertops, modern clean lines, and just a beautiful symmetry and balance. Products include a dark espresso stained cherry vanity from Brown Felicetta Designs, beautiful tile from Mission Tile, a wonderfully, unique pendant from Illuminee, amazing craftsmanship from Dale Marentette Tile, and many thanks to the many craftspeople who made it beautiful. We also thank our clients for their patience, creativity and wisdom.
