Project In Process: Jersey City NJ Historic Apartment Remodel

The Houseplay team is currently hard at work on a full apartment remodel in a historic Jersey City NJ building. We’re renovating the space so that a growing family can have the home of their dreams at last.

The current owners have lived in the space for 12 years without updating it, which made sense when they didn’t know if they’d be staying long-term.

However, they love the area and are committed to staying in the neighborhood with their kids, so now they’re investing in their apartment. We’re partnering with them to maximize space and tailor the home to their needs.

Our work on this project includes demolition, electrical, carpentry, plumbing, tiling, painting, and design services; we’ll be doing bathroom remodeling and kitchen remodeling too. (As of this writing, the renovation has begun and is well under way.)

Our clients find that one of the most helpful aspects of hiring a designer who also offers building services is the chance to ask questions and have a realistic sense of what you can afford upfront.

We also give you access to the resources that will help to make your vision for your space come to life, with a wealth of information on the quality, cost, and aesthetic of various materials and furnishings.

Finally, we also provide the drawing set you need to get permits and ensure that your space is designed to comply with local building regulations.
