First Class Bathroom Remodel

This room started off as a former lobby for an office, with door and window facing front.

The shower ended up where the door is, and the toilet and vanity against the (former) brick wall to the far right.


To the left, (picture above) is the best shot possible of the shower. This is looking directly where the door above used to be.

To the right, the window is smaller, the walls finished with tin panels, and stained oak trim.

Below is the vanity set to the right of the toilet.

Watch Where You're Walking!

This job started with removing a wall to make this kitchen a large kitchen - dining room combination.

Then the floor leveling, and subsequent sealing so that the peel & stick tiles the owner wanted would actually stick!

The diagonal pattern makes the room look even larger yet as it spread across the area of both previous rooms.

Stuck in the corner as we finish it off!


This hardwood floor has a dark frame two feet in from the walls all the way around!

The finished floor was truly stunning!
This home in Cumberland Co. has definitely increased its equity value!

I Can't See The Kids In The Pool While Sitting On The Ground!

In Cumberland Co., this homeowner had the pool put in, then realized it was difficult to watch the kids swimming without standing up the whole time.

How nice it would be, he thought, if there was a small deck to be able to put a chair on and watch the kids, without having to spend an arm and leg!

A small, 6' x 10' deck, which adjoins the edge of the pool helped solve the tired legs problem, as well as giving the kids a better launch area for jumping!

Posts and framing up already in this picture, and Andrea helping to screw in the deck boards.

Here is the process of stairs and railing, with pressure treated wood ballusters.

The owner wanted a strong, yet as inexpensive as possible deck. We used 4 x 4 posts, 2 x 6 joists and end bands, and special "severe weather" pressure treated deck surfacing!

Finished & Functional!

A gate provides code required security!

Done in less than 5 days.

Less than $2000!

(Note: Team Patterson reserves the right to be the first 'testers' of decks for pool access!) :)

[DO] FENCE ME IN! - Part 2


While this city home probably won't have any horses hitching up to it, the split rail fence does a good job of adding atmosphere to the property, while also letting people know that they shouldn't be cutting the corner and going across the grass.

1 day's work shown here, by Team Patterson!

This vinyl makes the electric transformer and the phone connection box less intrusive to the natural surrounding.

Fencing has lots of variety. Team Patterson has done alot of them and is ready to "fence you in!"



This vinyl fencing makes a clean look around the pool deck, installed entirely by Team Patterson!

This picture is two years after installation, pool is used by different group of renters every week, so no TLC here!

This privacy fence does a good job of hiding the deck which supports this heat pump unit and oil tank.
The left side opens up for storage underneath the deck.

Deck Rehab in Etters

The old deck was a hassle for the owner since boards came up every year.

Also, the stairs had rotted and were held together only by the ivy which had grown up around them.

We sistered the joists and replaced the end bands.

New stair supports (stringers) were cut, and stairs assembled!

The center board makes a classy break in the middle of the deck pattern.

Closet to Bathroom in York

The job was to make a bathroom out of a closet!

We started by knocking out two walls of the closet and the plaster & lathe side walls. Then frame up the new enlarged room, with a 45 degree corner to open up the passage in the kitchen.

After framing, both drain lines and water supply lines were run for the sink and toilet.

Electric was run for a vent fan/light and for a GFCI outlet, on a dedicated circuit to the main panel.

Then we sheetrocked inside, outside and ceiling. A pocket door was framed in to conserve space.

Densheild floor backer was laid for the tile floor.

On this job, the homeowner wanted to do her own spackle, paint, and tile work.

We came back a week later and installed the toilet,
sink, and trim.

She was very happy to
finally have a bathroom
