The Remodel That Began With Legos®

“Oh no! Lego® down the drain!”

It all started with an unwelcome surprise for these homeowners: stray Lego down the shower drain. Without any other reasonable way to access second-story plumbing, the fiberglass shower had to be removed to make repairs. At that point, the owners figured they might as well take advantage of the opportunity to update their bathroom.


They contacted C&R to re-design and remodel an ample yet somewhat outdated bathroom area. One challenge lay in the window location. In order to reconfigure the layout, consideration had to be given for the expansive window. They wanted a way to keep all that natural light and still make the most of the space.

 Design Challenges

A clever (and money saving) design called for replacing the seldom-used spa tub with a new tile shower. By angling the shower just right, the existing window did not need to be abandoned and now continues to provide natural light and a pleasant view. The custom tile shower is luxurious and spacious, complete with a clear glass enclosure, niche, rainfall shower head and handheld wands. We also made doubly sure the new shower drain would block any future Lego intruders!

What About The Old Shower Space?

On the other side of the room where the fiberglass shower once occupied a 3’x6’ space, we created an elegant dressing area with bench and clothes hooks for comfort and convenience. This also opened up the bathroom and added spa-like atmosphere.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Upholding our ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ motto, we kept the existing cabinets and re-installed the homeowners’ mirrors and lights. New Quartz counter tops and tile back splash updated the vanity beautifully. Luxury vinyl floor tile (LVT) installation provided warmer floors and easy maintenance.

From the initial meeting with Beth to the closeout visit, working with C&R was a pleasure. Beth listened, offered advice, and was willing to work within our budget. Every worker who came to our home was punctual, courteous, and cleaned up each day. We truly could not have asked for a better experience!

Excellent service and workmanship. We could not be happier with our kitchen remodel. Beth helped design the perfect kitchen and our Lead Carpenter completed the work in a timely and professional manner. Everyone we came in contact with at C&R was great—we are already working with them on a second project!
