Project Highlight: Attic Suite by Done Construction

One advantage of the industry we work in is getting to partner with fantastic contractors across the Baltimore and DC metro areas. Today, we want to highlight an awesome recent project by Done Construction completed in Baltimore County. National Lumber supplied the lumber materials for this project. We spoke with Beth Pointer of Done Construction to learn more about their recent attic suite renovation project.

About Done Construction

Done Construction is a woman-owned, Baltimore-based home remodeling company. The team works on interior projects, with a focus on kitchen and bathroom renovations. Beth founded Done Construction after 20 years as a union organizer. She met the three other members of her team while volunteering at the Station North Tool Library The Done Construction team is multi-discipline, though they have a primary background in carpentry. When needed, they work with trusted sub-contractors for different aspects of their projects, including electricians and plumbers. Their laser focus on interior remodeling has allowed them to perfect their craft and build spaces homeowners love.

About the Attic Suite Project

Done Construction was contracted to turn a client’s attic space into a master bedroom suite. The attic was outdated, and the space wasn’t being properly maximized. The project involved a full scale remodel of the attic to convert it into a bedroom, and a bathroom addition to complete the suite. Because of the low ceilings in the attic, the team had to raise the roof in the shower area to ensure it fit properly. Beth spoke about how much the team at Done enjoyed this project because the homeowners gave them free rein to flex their creative muscles, and were very trusting of their judgment to put together something fantastic.

Unique Touches of the Attic Suite Project

Beth explained that the team loved how the bathroom came out, especially within the limited space of an attic. Shiplap was utilized in several areas to bring a distinctive aesthetic to the project. Throughout the project, the Done Construction team crafted custom shelving and storage to help the homeowners make get the most out of their space. Another key feature? A custom nook so the family dog could have a space all to himself!

Work With National Lumber

Done Construction has worked with National Lumber to supply several projects. We were very excited to get to supply such a unique and awesome finished product. Beth said she appreciates that National Lumber has just about every material her team needs, and can easily acquire those not stocked on hand. She also highlighted Travis in our Kitchen Department for helping to make the Done team’s supply process smooth and super easy. We love how this project turned out, and are glad we could help Done Construction with the fantastic work they do.
