In our effort to source locally

March 29th, 2013

In our effort to source locally produced materials for our bathroom remodels, Strasser Woodenworks of Woodinville is one of our favorite suppliers. Their line of bathroom vanities and cabinet accessories represent the finest in locally available non-custom cabinetry with several solid wood finishes and styles to choose from. Moreover, we offer 25% off retail on all cabinet purchases through our showroom and the quickest delivery possible.

I had to showcase

February 4th, 2013

I had to showcase one of our favorite recent projects completed for a couple living in a houseboat on Lake Union. It was a pleasure to see the stunning bathroom transformation using TruStone Rainforest Green for their Spa Tub and Shower Surround.

Just wanted to share

January 6th, 2013

Just wanted to share a recent testimonial from one our customers:

“It was a pleasure to work with you. We are so happy with our remodeled bathroom. The new layout makes the room seem so spacious. Love the enlarged shower, love the frameless enclosure, love the heated floors and especially love that there is no more tile. The TruStone is beautiful!

Peter – thank you for listening to what we wanted, offering suggestions and helping us put together a wonderful master bath.

Heather – thank you for your friendly help, answering questions, and keeping us posted on the work schedule.

Steve and Don – thank you for “making” our bathroom. From demo to rebuild – you are hard, conscientious, and courteous workers. You are truly craftsmen.”

Here are some pictures of their beautiful new bathroom. We used TruStone in Vanilla Travertine for their new shower, bath and vanity area. Looks amazing!

Wanted to include some photos

June 6th, 2011

Wanted to include some photos from a couple of recently completed jobs. Both projects show the shower prior to the glass enclosure installation in order to better highlight the TruStone. The first two photos feature a new TruStone option “Breora”. I think this will prove a popular color choice since it is a creamy neutral with natural earth tones. It goes beautifully with most cabinets and can coordinate well with light or dark flooring.
