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.

This shower has river stone on the floor which comes on 12x12 sheets. The hard part is grouting all of the joints but it just takes a little extra time. I think we used grey calcutta marble on the shower walls but I am not positive. A large granite supplier should be able to take a look at this photo and identify some similar options for you. The marble walls look a bit lighter in person. Check out some of the other photos in this gallery because we used the same marble on the countertop and window sill. Best of luck!

These are Owens Corning glass blocks. They are available from most masonry supply stores and Lowes or Home Depot in a variety of sizes to fit your project. Best of luck!

Thanks Jarrett, but is the panelling a different colour or just a different sheen? Love the room!

The paneling is painted with a slightly darker shade of white with a touch of grey mixed in. Good luck!
