Loft Hallway Converted into Bedroom

Loft Hallway Converted to Bedroom

This project was a lot of fun. There was a large loft hallway on the second floor overlooking a cathedral living room. The homeowner wanted the hallway converted into a new bedroom for their soon to be born son. After the initial walk through, Dagen Structures came in, pulled back the carpet, framed out the wall and a new closet to match the rest of the bedrooms. Electric was then installed in the new wall and a ceiling fan was added by Mark Goodman Electric. After the electric was complete, drywall was installed and finished. Baseboard was added and the carpet was re-stretched to fit around the new walls. Finally, it was painted with two colors chosen by the homeowner with Benjamin Moore BEN paint on the walls and Regal Semi-gloss on all of the woodwork. We are really pleased with the final product.

To avoid having the paint the entire hallway and cathedral ceiling – which would have added unnecessary cost to the project, green Frog Tape was added to the ceiling where the drywall was to be finished. The drywall was then hung against the tape and the tape was cut off after it was sanded. A small line of caulk was then run into the corner to tie up the look.

On this job, 2.5 sheets of drywall was installed on a bump-out behind the vanity and on the ceiling, blended with the old plaster. Some patching (blending to the original plaster) was done around the tub up to the cement board. After the drywall was completed, the entire bathroom (radiator included) was repainted.

This is the main living area from a recent drywall addition. It was a 74 sheet addition and repair. The repair work was done upstairs (photos below). In the living room, 5/8″ drywall was hung on the ceilings for sound control. On the butt joints, rock splicers were used to keep the joints as flat and invisible as possible. We also used a new solvent based glue which is manufactured to reduce nail/screw pops by a significant percentage.

This was a small drywall patch job to cover up some new plumbing after a leak in the kitchen. A small 4×5 piece of drywall was installed over the cabinets and refrigerator using 20 minute joint compound and finished off with a low dust joint compound to minimize dust. The space between the ceiling and the cabinets was 3.5″ (a tricky space to finish!). A small 3″ knife was used to get this difficult to reach area. Upon sanding, the job was painted to match the existing ceiling color. This job took about a day and a half to complete.
