Southpoint Durham Home Renovation From Closing to Finish Line

We recently worked with some amazing homeowners who knew from the minute they closed on their new dream home that they wanted to embark on a large scale home renovation. This was a unique experience because our team at Prince & Sons was involved from the very beginning. This helped us to anticipate certain challenges and face them head on before they became real issues down the road. 

Working in a situation like this was beneficial both for the contractor, as well as the homeowners. We understood our client’s budget and used that knowledge to come up with a home renovation project that offered the best bang for their buck!

The southern area of Durham, especially near Southpoint Mall is growing by leaps and bounds. Homes are selling in hours and homeowners are investing in their homes knowing that they’ll be able to see a return on their investment when it comes time to sell.

Is Natural Wood Making a Comeback?

Over the past few years we’ve done quite a number of kitchen renovations where we used white or painted cabinets. These homeowners opted to go with white cabinets, as well as a natural wood island and we thought the finished product turned out amazingly well! Working with the homeowners, we decided on Jim Bishop Cabinets, which offer a high quality product at a price that’s in the middle of the pack in terms of custom cabinets.

Here is a gallery showcasing some of the “after” shots of this renovation project. We’re extremely proud of the finished product as are the homeowners. Reach out to our team if you’re interested in a similar style renovation project.

Challenges of This Unique Home Renovation Project

There are always challenges with any renovation project, which is one of the key reasons working with a reputable general contractor can be so beneficial. This renovation project had a number of challenges that we were able to overcome, a few of which included:

  • Supply Chain Issues – This renovation like many as of late experienced a number of supply chain shortages. For example, the kitchen countertops were delayed for quite some time, which makes it difficult to call a job 100% complete.
  • Plumbing Issues – We ended up electing to replumb the entire home with Pex to prevent plumbing issues in the future.
  • Open Concept – These homeowners wanted to have an open concept which required a large structural beam that was quite a chore to design and install. This beam spanned 24” x 20 feet.
