The Gentleman's Privy for Mansion in May

The Gentleman's Privy for Mansion in May

home remodeling202007976
The Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens is the flagship fundraising event of the Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center. The WAMMC committee selected Tyvan Hill in New Vernon, New Jersey as the site of the 19th mansion in May. The U-shaped home is over 11,000 square feet and boasts ten bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Sitting atop 8 acres, the estate features a large pool and gated courtyard. Monk's Home Improvements completely redesigned a full bathroom for the showhouse. We took a very dated brown and black bathroom and created a glamorous, yet masculine bathroom, for the gentleman's quarters. The new bathroom features a free-standing claw-foot tub, double vanity, tiled shower with bench, wainscoting throughout the room, and striking floor tile that ties everything together.

It went extremely well. The new door is beautiful and the workers were pleasant to work with. We needed some work done outside around the door, and the foreman gave us a great suggestion which worked perfectly for us. The banister (for our center hall colonial) was very intricate, and the old stain needed to be hand sanded in several areas and was tedious work. The crew did a wonderful job, and th...

Installation was shoddy with paint left on the glass and hardware missing. Installation crew even painted plastic moldings which wer never supposed to be painted and improperly installed window moldings. Custom woodwork (moldings) looked like it was done by a 12 yea...

The house is for sale and I was contacting him from out of state as I have already moved. In quick order, he visited the house, sent me an estimate and once I confirmed, he booked a start date of Monday, August...
