New splash in a small bathroom

Written by: Sam Wilder

Spending money on remodeling any part of your home is never an easy decision. Re-imagining a small bath is an even bigger challenge.

The Raab family of Ft. Mitchell had their hands full in the first floor bathroom of their Cape Cod home because they knew they couldn’t live with their current bath configuration and they didn’t have much room to work with.

After deciding to undertake the project while her husband was away serving for the military, Stefanie Raab hired Rob Wildeboer of RW Contracting. Initially, a budget of $15,000 seemed like a lot of money to spend in a room measuring less than 100 square feet.  But then, as the project unfolded, concern grew. Layers of flooring, faulty wiring and plumbing repairs that extended into the garage below quickly drove the price another 20 percent over the initial estimate. It wasn’t until the project was nearing completion that Stefanie knew she had made a good decision.
