Featured Project: Bathroom Remodel

Michael F. Simon Builders is excited to share a recently finished bathroom remodel with you. We had previously built a home for this client’s parents, so when this project came up, they picked Simon Builders hoping for the same great experience that their parents went through.

This bathroom had a sloped ceiling that severely limited the space. The further into the bathroom you went, the lower the ceiling was. The finishes in this bathroom were dated and in desperate need of modernizing. While designing the new layout, we knew removing the ceiling and increasing the height in the bathroom would give the space the look and feel that our clients wanted.

It may sound easy, but removing the roof involved quite a bit of work. The plaster on the walls and ceiling was especially thick. The floor also was a monster project. New structural supports were carried all the way from the roof line, down through the first and second floors, and into the lower level. A new window was added above the freestanding tub to bring in natural light and help brighten the room.


The locations of the tub, vanity cabinet, shower, and toilet all remained the same. However, they  were all replaced with new modern fixtures. Now when you walk into this bathroom, you are greeted with fantastic tile work that features a border pattern, topped off with a beautiful bullnose detail. As you walk into the room, peeking into the shower is sure to make you “oh and ah”.

Then when you see the huge claw foot tub you will understand why our tagline is “Quality Defined”.

This top-notch bathroom is now complete and is truly stunning. We are very proud of how it turned out, and happy to be able to help this family through a great remodeling experience.


The Villas of Callaway Court in The Community of Bishops Bay

Last fall, our first Villa of Callaway Court was completed. We have begun building the second Villa and will have it finished in June. Stay tuned for information about how you can take a tour of this home.

This spring, the rest of the infrastructure including the private drive with cul-de-sac will be finished. Lots 3-10 will be available with building contracts. This private enclave of just ten homes is nestled along the fifth fairway of Bishops Bay Golf Course. The Villas of Callaway Court will provide you with luxury and privacy, allowing you to capture the natural beauty of the countryside and a magnificent panoramic view.
