Demolition Review and Shower Installation

Project: Miami Beach Condo, Episode 3, Part 1

With demolition virtually complete, the crew is setting up new walls to separate the sleeping area from the living space. Glass pocket doors will allow light and air to flow through the rooms. By touring Lincoln Road with architectural historian Allan Shulman, Bob gathers information about the neighborhood, which, in the 1950s, accommodated the first pedestrian mall of its kind. Newly rediscovered, Lincoln Road is once again a popular spot for shopping and dining in Miami.
Part 1: Demolition Review and Shower Installation
The demolition crew has removed all the old cabinets, fixtures, and electrical boxes in the kitchen before knocking down the divider wall. Bob now walks through an open, loft-like space, towards the bathroom, where Carlos Leuchtmann from Blue Ridge Plumbing is working. Leuchtmann shows Bob the shower pan and the layout of the new fixtures. He also points out the anti-scald restrictor and the dual-flow Moen shower fixture, which allows for either an overhead, rain-type water flow or a body spa with four wall sprayers.

Part 3: Touring Lincoln Road in Miami Beach
In this condo renewal project, Bob and the crew demonstrate how to use space, color, and choice finishes to make the most of a small space.

The kitchen is converted into an elegant dining space looking onto the living area, while a closet is transformed into a bar with recessed lighting and glass shelves. And the small bathroom turns into an oasis with luminous glass tile, a wash of color, and sleek new fixtures.

Pocket doors with an antique-look are installed so as to separate the living and sleeping spaces, and furniture is selected to reflect Miami's unique personality.

Finally, the outdoor space overlooking Biscayne Bay is made practical and, perhaps most importantly, comfortable.
