Before & After

Santa Barbara is no doubt a wonderful place to live. There are sunny days, people are friendly and everyone is here to have a good life. That being said many there are more people than places to live and most of the places are older and need improvements.

We have a Santa Barbara condo built in 1984 a half mile from the beach that really needed some updated bathrooms. With a tight budget we let our friends at the Home Depot supply all the materials.  Maybe you will like our ideas and we can save you some time by copying our remodel. Cheers!
