Advantage Contracting Portfolio

This project received the award for the 2010 CT Homebuilder's Association Best Bathroom Renovation. It features a 5500 pound solid boulder bathtub, radius glass block shower with two walls covered in book matched full slabs of marble, and reclaimed wide board rustic white oak floors installed over hydronic radiant heat in the concrete floor slab. This bathroom also incorporates a great deal of salvage and reclaimed materials including the 1800's piano legs which were used to create the vanity, an antique cherry corner cabinet was built into the wainscot paneling, chestnut barn timbers were added for effect and also serve as a channel to deliver water supply to the shower via a rain shower head and to the tub via a Kohler laminar flow tub filler. The entire addition was built with 2x8 wall framing and has been filled with full cavity open cell spray foam. The frost walls and floor slab were insulated with 2" R-10 EPS to provide a complete thermal break from the exterior climate. Radiant heat was poured into the floor slab and wraps the lower 3rd of the tub which is below the floor in order to keep the thermal mass hot. Marvin Ultimate double hung windows were used throughout. Another unusual detail is the Corten ceiling panels that were applied to the vaulted ceiling. Each Corten corrugated steel panel was propped up in a field and sprayed with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and hydrogen peroxide for approx. 4 weeks to accelerate the rust process until the desired effect was achieved. Then panels were then cleaned and coated with 4 coats of matte finish polyurethane to seal the finished product. The results are stunning and look incredible next to a hand made metal and blown glass chandelier.

Hello, These sconces were hand made. My sister actually is the glass blower who made these. She no longer works as a glass blower. Good luck with your project.

Good morning Lin,
The beveled mirror glass in this photo can be ordered from any glass shop. Unfortunately, the mirror frame, tile mosaic border, and paint finishes were all custom designed and built here on site by the homeowner. We made a plywood backer panel for the mirror and added basic trim moldings to create a frame which are available from any lumber yard. After that, broken plates, cups, and dishes were crushed up by wrapping them in a towel and hitting them with a hammer. Crushed tile is applied to the border by using a one part tile adhesive and then grouted using any color. As for the sink, I do not recall where we found this sink but I will get back to you if I find the source.
Thanks and good luck,
Jarrett Kravitz

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 18 Sumptuous Vanities for Singular Bathrooms
How would you like a vanity with legs as shapely as Tina Turner's? This award-winning bathroom features a vanity made with legs from an 1800s piano. The large basket underneath provides plenty of towel storage. It is a very light and bright space with a generously proportioned mirror framed in a style and scale that hold their own above the vanity.
