Bayside Estate

Two thousand square feet of outdoor concrete balconies were added to the rear of the home. Additionally, the exterior of the home received a transformation to convert it to a more appealing coastal contemporary styling. On the interior, a complete overhaul of all mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems took place which was then topped off with modern finishes and details. 

This project was a jumping off point for Trinity Custom Homes. It was a proof of concept for a business model we had been honing and crafting over the previous 7 years. Bringing in house carpentry to a custom home building company and tying it all together with modern construction technologies and open book transparency to provide a level of service that is unparalleled in the Sarasota area. Our team self-performed all demolition, framing, finish carpentry, window installation, flooring installation among many other scopes of work on this home. This was the first project we were awarded a magazine cover for and was the inspiration for what was to come.  We will forever be grateful to our clients who gave us this opportunity. We are most proud that the entire project from start to completion took only 11 months. We credit this to our amazing team and trade partners as well as our systems and processes.

Bayside Estate

Project Duration: 11 Months

We started off with a 30+ year old waterfront home that was long past its glory days. The home had many systems which were in disrepair and finishes that were outdated. Fortunately, we had a client and design team with vision. The home was previously a three-bedroom home but would need to be converted to make room for a family of five. Working with DSDG Architects, our client’s wish soon began to take shape on a set of construction drawings. Their primary concern was hurricane resistance and how to fortify the home to exceed current building codes to ensure the safety of the family. 

Demolition commenced and every bit of finishes, electrical wire, plumbing, air conditioning ducting etc. was removed from the home and we had a blank canvas. Every window and door in this home was reframed. 85% of the exterior walls were reconstructed and shear walls added for strength. Hurricane tie downs and connectors were added to exceed all current hurricane design criteria. There was not a square inch of this home that was not gone through. Once the structure was addressed, it was time for a complete reconfiguring of the home to add two additional bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and configure the home to a very function layout.

We consulted with Trinity Construction because we were having problems with our new home builder not meeting electable on warranty repairs. Jay was able to give us some priceless insights, industry knowledge, and point out numerous problems going on during the construction. Thanks to his walk through, we were able to get our home builder warranty department to replace several things in our home that we could have missed without his expertise and knowledge. He also brought attention to some serious hazards that were going on during construction. He was straight forward and honest, which I greatly appreciated.
When I think of Mike and his team over at Trinity Construction and design the first things that come to mind are trust, honesty, and integrity. I met Mike when he was brought in on a new-build to take over for a contractor who lost those values. I refer him to friends and colleagues and have received calls back thanking me for introducing them to Mike and his team. As a licensed home inspector I’ve seen my share of sloppy workmanship but I’ve stood in some of Mike’s luxury builds and my parents and I both live in two of his remodels and his attention to detail is unmatched.
The professionalism I have experienced working with Jay, the VP of Operations, has been unequaled. He is detail oriented and never misses a thing. He is equitable, honest, and quick to respond.
