Concrete Finish Condo Kitchen

This Condo at The Renaissance on Turtle Creek had not been updated since 1998. The new owners wanted a modern look with concrete walls and large stone tile.

For an industrial look and to add more character to the space the flooring was stained a dark gray and the structural concrete walls are exposed to accent the floors.  The walls were skim coated and then were sealed with a natural coating.

The owners wanted to update their condo with an open floor plan, raised ceilings, new kitchen, new bathrooms and tile floors, and a new multi-use living room with hardwood floors.

The client engaged SHM Architects to take their vision, design a new layout, and create the permit-ready plans .

Working closely with the owners, the city, the Homeowners Association (HOA) and the property management team Renowned Renovation ensured all the plans, permits, and work complied with rules and regulations to deliver a well-built home with meticulous detailing and high-end materials. Our project management app, BuilderTrend keep everyone in the loop and help create little or no stress for the owners. We completed the condo remodeling project on schedule and in the budget.

In compliance with the Condo HOA rules, remodeling work could only occur on weekdays, between 9 o’clock in the morning and 5 o’clock in the evenings. Everything that had to be removed or installed had to be scheduled and highly coordinated because there were limited street-only parking and there was no storage area. Everything had to be moved in and out using a 6′-by-6′ elevator 15 stories each way. We took many elevator rides during this high rise condo remodeling project on schedule and in the budget.

Everything had to be moved in and out using a 6′-by-6′ elevator 15 stories each way. We took many elevator rides during this high rise condo remodeling project!

One challenging element of remodeling this high-rise condo was that the owners wanted to raise the ceilings as high as was possible which required that we replace most of the legacy wiring, fixtures, and the air conditioner ducts needed for the new HVAC system to effectively heat and cool the home. One challenge we discovered after the demo was to achieve the open kitchen concept it was necessary to move a roof drain.To obtain approval we needed an engineering assessment, code compliance expert, variance from the City of Dallas, approval from the HOA, coordination with HOA’s roofers, coring a new hole in the roof deck, and finally plumbing the new roof drain location.

The owners’ selection of materials, fixtures, appliances, furniture-grade custom cabinets, and the remote-controlled hideaway Murphy bed reflected their desire for function, luxury, durability, and style.

It was a pleasure working with and installing leading-edge products like Hunter Douglas Window Fashions, Cambria Surfaces, DuChateau Wood Flooring, Fixtures by WaterWorks, TruStile Doors, and Renowned Cabinetry

The Best Durable Custom Cabinets use Dovetail Joints

Joinery is the part of woodworking that involves joining together pieces of lumber, to produce drawers. For the best durable custom cabinets Renowned Renovation uses Dovetail Joints. Dovetail joints are known for their strength and durability. Dovetail joints don’t require mechanical fasteners to stick together like other joinery techniques do. Rather, dovetail joints use pins and tails to interlock together, where one side has a pin that locks into the other side’s tail, and then glued together for a solid dovetail construction. The benefits of dovetail drawers are endless in addition to strength, flexibility, toughness, appearance, etc.

  • Butt joint – The end of a piece of wood is butted against another piece of wood. This is the simplest and weakest joint. Of those, there is the
    • a) T-butt, b) end-to-end butt, c) T-lap d) Miter butt and e) edge-to-edge butt.
  • Lap joint – The end of a piece of wood is laid over and connected to another piece of wood. This is the next simplest and weakest joint.
  • Bridle joint – Also known as open tenon, open mortise and tenon, or tongue and fork joints, this joint is where the through mortise is open on one side and forms a fork shape. The mate has a through tenon or necked joint. Bridle joints are commonly used to join rafter tops, also used in scarf joints and sometimes sill corner joints in timber framing.
  • Dowel joint – The end of a piece of wood is butted against another piece of wood. This is reinforced with dowel pins. This joint is quick to make with production line machinery and so is a very common joint in factory-made furniture.
  • Mitre joint – Similar to a butt joint, but both pieces have been bevelled (usually at a 45 degree angle).
  • Finger joint – Also known as a box joint, is a corner joint with interlocking fingers. Receives pressure from two directions.
  • Dovetail joint – A form of box joint where the fingers are locked together by diagonal cuts. More secure than a finger joint.[1]
  • Dado joint – Also called a housing joint or trench joint, a slot is cut across the grain in one piece for another piece to set into; shelves on a bookshelf having slots cut into the sides of the shelf, for example.
  • Groove joint Like the dado joint, except that the slot is cut with the grain.
  • Tongue and groove – Each piece has a groove cut all along one edge, and a thin, deep ridge (the tongue) on the opposite edge. If the tongue is unattached, it is considered a spline joint.
  • Mortise and tenon – A stub (the tenon) will fit tightly into a hole cut for it (the mortise). This is a hallmark of Mission Style furniture, and also the traditional method of jointing frame and panel members in doors, windows, and cabinets. This joint is a good strong joint to use.
  • Birdsmouth joint – Also called a bird’s beak cut, this joint used in roof construction. A V-shaped cut in the rafter connects the rafter to the wall-plate.[2]
  • Cross Lap – A joint in which the two members are joined by removing material from each at the point of intersection so that they overlap.
  • Splice joint – A joint used to attach two members end to end.
  • Pocket-hole joinery – A hidden screw is driven into the joint at an angle.
  • Biscuit – A wooden oval is glued into two crescent-shaped holes.
  • Floating tenon joint – See Mortise and tenon
  • Stitch and glue – Wood panels stitched together, usually with co
