Completing a sweeping bathroom remodel with a custom vanity
Larry Millholland, Sr., is no stranger to complex carpentry projects.
The Angie's List member has built three houses from scratch, remodeled five and used to build pool tables and caskets.
Since the middle of last December, when he and his wife decided to move full time to Central Florida from their part-time home in Indianapolis, Millholland has been working eight to ten hours a day remodeling their 1968 Winter Haven, Fla., home. That’s meant ripping out and replacing carpet, installing crown molding around the ceilings of the living room and revamping the house’s power system with natural gas that used to be entirely electric.
But earlier this year, he and his wife needed three custom vanities built for bathrooms he was remodeling in their new, full-time Florida home.
"I tried to purchase a quality vanity from both Lowe's and Home Depot, but they could only supply what I needed in a width that was 2 inches too long, and at a four-weeks’ wait," Millholland says. So, he turned to Angie's List, where he found a cabinetmaker who could get the job done. The contractor delivered a quality vanity with a soft close, and dovetailed, full-extension drawers on ball bearing slides.
In two weeks, the contractor finished the job, saving Millholland precious time and energy.
"He even gave me a piece of carpet to keep them from getting scratched in transit," Millholland says. "When I installed them in the bathroom, they fit together perfectly."
The result? A stunning white custom vanity that furthers a remodeling project that's been long in the making.
