Bathroom Renovations in Two 100-Year-Old Homes
Built in 1890, this rambling house set in the woods suffered from rotted molding in the master bath. The owner realized that repairing the molding was also a chance to renovate the master bathroom to prevent future problems and make the room more comfortable. We replaced the molding and the sink, re-grouted and repaired the slider trim in the shower, and patched and painted the wall. We installed grab bars and a bath bench and fixed the hardware on the bathroom closet door. In all our work, we made sure that the mold problem would not reoccur. The owner was so pleased with the completed master bath that he asked us to work on the downstairs bath, the garage, the shed (where we installed a new window), and the roof (including gutters and downspout).
Built in 1900, a lovely two story home in Beverly needed updating and minor restoration throughout. In dealing with the homeowner’s list, we investigated the source of a leak in the first floor ceiling and uncovered a bathroom pipe in need of repair. We opened the ceiling to give the plumber access to the pipe, then patched and painted the ceiling after the plumber finished.

As with many other North Shore towns, Beverly, Massachusetts was named for a town in England and was first settled in the 1600s. In fact, the Balch House, still standing, dates from 1679. Beverly Harbor was the home port of the first ship commissioned by the U.S. military (1775); and the first cotton mill in the colonies started up in Beverly in 1787. Thousands of miles west, Beverly Hills, California, was named for Beverly because President William H. Taft vacationed in both spots.
