No matter how GRAND a project is, its true beauty is in the details. In this Residential Interior/Exterior Specialty CotY Award winning project, it’s not until you peel away the outer layers that you reveal its inner beauty. The blue heron tile mosaic was designed to withstand the harsh pool environment and add a personal touch to the client’s home. Leo Lantz Construction personifies this attention to detail and will provide the same for your next project. Leo Lantz Construction is your trusted design and construction partner.
Our clients’ goals were to create an inviting home recreation space and office expansion while maintaining the character of the home. The Cornice work and masonry were matched to the 35 year old exterior. The addition included a two car garage addition with second floor office expansion, old garage conversion to rec room, indoor pool with mechanical room and an elegant full bathroom. A 9’ tall NanaWall door unit provides easy conversion to outdoor living. Four skylights enhanced the outdoor experience for the indoor pool room. All the rear decks and covered porches were renovated with Wolf composite decking and PVC railing systems.
The old house was 2” out of plumb but we were able to seamlessly blend the new structure to the old. Old garage was converted to rec room with huge pantry storage room at the top of the landing and miscellaneous storage underneath. Exposed ductwork and luxury vinyl tile floor were featured in the game room. A charging port for the electric car was installed in the garage which had an epoxied floor coating and finished interior walls. The HVAC mechanical room was installed over the interior hallway with access from the garage.
The SwimEx pool had to be craned into place once the foundation and concrete pad were built. The addition was then constructed around the pool. The pool room featured a custom blue heron wall tile mosaic to personalize the space. The mosaic was produced from a personal client photograph of a blue heron standing on a rock in the James River. The pool can be controlled from three locations: the wall, the controls on the pool and an iPad or iPhone.
The elegant and modern pool bathroom featured White Zeus Silestone Countertop, Wellborn Dove Gray vanity cabinets, classic light fixtures and mirror, and oversize floor and wall tiles. At last report, our client was considering selling monthly memberships!
“Leo Lantz has very high standards of workmanship, is on site almost daily (including some weekends!) to check on quality and progress of work and to do a lot of the work himself. He is one of the most capable construction company owners whom we have ever dealt with. He takes great pride in his projects and has an incredible work ethic, keeping us informed of scheduling and responding to calls, text messages, and emails extremely promptly. With his great depth of experience and knowledge, he comes up with very creative solutions and design results. Each step of the way, he offers advice and options and is intent on honoring our preferences. Leo is quite personable and approachable, and is a great communicator which is very helpful especially since we had a long-term project which was rather complicated. We had confidence in his ability to solve any problems which may have arisen, and he was true to form. If you want a project done correctly, then Leo Lantz Construction is the company to hire.”
