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.
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 The home had many systems which were in disrepair and finishes that were outdated.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.
