Project Feature: Chanhassen Bathroom Remodel – Before & After | Chanhassen Remodeler

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Before this bathroom remodel, these homeowners had everything they didn’t want.  A small shower sat opposite a water-heater-draining soaking tub. The room featured 1990s oak cabinets they didn’t like, far too much brass for their taste, and was topped off with laminate countertop.

What they really wanted was a bathroom that would function with their lifestyle.  A room of relaxation.  They envisioned a beautiful, practical shower in a contemporary, stylish room.

So did we.  The results?  A sophisticated and adorable new master bath (see below).  This remodeled bathroom now features:

  • Diamond brand cabinetry in cherry wood with a dark finish
  • Hanstone quartz on the countertops, used also on the shower seating and ledges
  • A custom walk-in shower layout, beautifully visible through a single sheet of glass
  • Stone-inspired 2×2 mosaic tiles in the shower
  • Neutral 18×18 tile on the floor and 9×12 tile on the walls in a brick layout pattern

Bathroom Remodeling Trends for 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Interested in giving your home a fresh start for the new year?  Why not make some stunning changes to the first room you walk into each morning and the last one you use before going to bed each night – your bathroom!  Starting and ending your day in a room that is serene, organized, refreshing, and just plain beautiful can make a significant change in your outlook each day.

Here are a few bathroom remodel trends we at Sass Construction see sticking around for 2013:

1. Creating your Bathroom around a Custom Vanity:  An organized bathroom can make all the difference in how you feel each morning.  Building a custom vanity that is meant just for your things and your home is a wonderful way of making your morning routine efficient and stress-free.  Decide what storage you need and design the rest of your bathroom around it!

2. Using Distinctive Tile and Stonework:  Tile and stonework can give your bathroom that crisp, spa-like feel that offers the soothing feel of relaxation.  Like a water’s edge running over washed up stones, we feel relaxed when we’re surrounded by things of nature, and earthy and neutral-toned stone is definitely on-trend.  Additionally, using stone and tile in your bathroom is more moisture resistant and can help prevent leaks, mildew, and mold.

3. Adding Eco-Friendly Fixtures: Not just finishing touches chosen for practicality or aesthetics, the fixtures in your bathroom, including toilets, faucets, showerheads, and bathtubs, can have a great impact on your water use.  Eco-friendly aspects can help you save money on your water bill in addition to saving the planet.  And since Green products have officially gone mainstream, you can now find everything from modern basics to stunning designs that will bring major impact to your room.

Spring Deck Projects

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Spring is in the air and we are hard at work with exterior home improvement projects. Right now we are all about decks here at Sass Construction having just wrapped up two great projects!

Lake Minnetoka Deck

The first project was for one of our favorite customers – a Lake Minnetonka based family we have been working with for nearly twelve years. As you can see from the photos below, the first step in this deck project was to install a new flat roof over their basement addition. We framed in this new area and carried the deck completely across the back of the home. Over the course of ten days we installed footings and framework, leaving the family to install their own decking and railings with our guidance. We enjoyed tag-teaming with them to finish off a great deck so they can enjoy their beautiful views of the lake!

Minneapolis Deck

We also just finished a deck installation on a townhouse. The homeowner’s existing deck was rotten and in need of replacement. For her new deck, the homeowner desired some privacy from the homes on her left and right, and an open design that would allow her to take advantage of the yard behind her. We worked with the owner’s townhome association to design a deck that met her needs, while also falling in line with the association’s guidelines and approval. To finish the project up, the homeowner chose to complete the final step of staining the deck herself!

We are looking forward to a summer filled with more exterior projects and design opportunities!

A Note From Mark Sass

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost here – time sure does fly! I just wanted to take a minute to reflect on the past few months and what I have learned.

I have been going to Alaska for part of the winter for many years now, helping my son Brent live out his dream of dog mushing. I appreciate my time away and always come back with a new eye opening perspective on life.

This year in Alaska I worked on equipment, helped with logistics, feed dogs, and pitched in just about anywhere I was needed. In addition, I went with Brent to the races he competed in – the Yukon Quest, and for the first time ever the Iditarod. Brent placed 13th in the Iditarod and received the Rookie of the Year award – we are all very proud of him. And now that the racing season is over we are all looking forward to next year.

During the season I put on 5,500 miles traveling around Alaska, along with following Brent through the race checkpoints to cheer him on and help out with the dogs. Along the way I had the pleasure of meeting many interesting people from all walks of life. I also spent time dog mushing, snowshoeing, skiing and snowmobiling.

If I’m reminded one thing from my trip to Alaska each year – it’s we all need to slow down and enjoy life a little more. I hope that this note finds you well and that you can take some time to slow down this summer and enjoy all the important people in your life!

As always, let us know if there is anything we can do to help you! We appreciate your business and look forward to a great summer!
