These old, light gauge metal railings did not fit with the decor of
the home and the owner's of the home were also becoming concerned with
the safety of their grandchildren falling through the widely spaced
balusters. We replaced the railings with new oak railings with baluster
spacing to the current building code. The new oak railings provide a
much more appropriate look with the home's decor.
St. Clare's Episcopal Church was originally constructed as a model home
for a local contractor. When the church took over the
existing layout of the building didn't suit their needs exactly, but
they worked with it until the funds were available for remodeling. St.
Clare's approached Osincup Construction, Inc. to design and build a
remodel that would transform their former model home to meet their needs
as a church. Chief among these needs was removing a stairwell that sat
in the middle of the chapel blocking churchgoers view of the altar and
relocating the kitchen facilities from the chapel into the parish hall,
which was originally the contractor’s sales office. Moving the kitchen
allowed a wall to be removed to open up space for additional seating in
the chapel area. During the remodel, a handicap accessible restroom was
added to the parish hall, a raised altar was constructed in the chapel,
custom railings were hand crafted throughout the chapel, and the
interior was repainted as well as re-carpeted.

This bathroom was rather dated in appearance and lacked some
functionality. The owners wanted to add a shower to the bathtub, install
tile to replace the faux marble tub surround and countertop, tile to
replace the carpeted floor, replace all of the plumbing fixtures and
keep the cost down. The resulting remodel provided a clean, updated look
to the bathroom. The addition of the shower now allows guests the option
of a bath or shower, without them intruding on the owner's master bath.
