AMRON Condo Remodel in Pacific Palisades

By | Remodel

AMRON’s clients decided to completely remodel their circa 1970’s condo.  AMRON gutted the entire unit and put in new electrical, plumbing, support beams, floor, ceilings, walls, drywalls, bathrooms, kitchen, walk-in closets, windows, doors, molding, and deck resurfacing.

The new AMRON design build kitchen features custom built upper and lower cabinets, new Thermador appliances, quartz counter tops and marble backsplash.  The following are 3 photos of the condo before it was refurbished.

AMRON’s remodel included new wall additions / layout throughout the units with new interior solid core 1 3/4″ doors/jambs and hardware, finish plumbing, finish electrical and ceiling fixtures / recess lighting, finish tile, and all miscellaneous finish work required to complete the unit. The AMRON remodel also included new drywall, oak flooring, and paint.  The following are photos show the condo upon completion of the project.

AMRON opened up the kitchen to the living room and hall to fully utilize the space and light coming in from the ocean view.  The kitchen features a window seat next to the dishwasher and an independent island with lots of cupboard space.  The engineered support beam by the kitchen island replaces the support wall.

The flooring is engineered oak wood.

For this AMRON design build bathroom, AMRON installed new shower lath, custom built cabinets, quartz counter tops, tile backsplash and mirror frame, nickel platted fixtures, and marble shower, walls and floor.

AMRON tore out an outdated wet bar and media center in the living room and used the reclaimed square footage to build a brand new walk-in cedar closet with recessed lighting, floor to ceiling full length mirror, and oak floors for the Master Bedroom.  Check out the following photos of the walk-in closet.

The guest bathroom has the same light and airy motif as the kitchen and master bathroom with marble walls and floors, nickel platted fixtures, quartz countertops, AMRON custom made cabinets, and tile backsplash, mirror frame, and bathroom floor.

To add ambiance to the living room area, AMRON utilized the wall space where the old media center had been, and designed and built a marble, gas fireplace as shown below. Note, the new, sliding glass doors to the balcony, as well as, recessed lighting, oak floors, throughout.

Beautiful Bathroom Remodel by AMRON

When it comes to designing & building a space our clients love, AMRON does it right!  The following is a peak at the final product, but read on to see what it takes to make it happen!

AMRON’s client purchased a 1930’s fixer upper, complete with vintage tiles, knob & tube electrical wiring, cast iron plumbing, and jerry-rigged structural beams.

The bathroom ceiling was so low, AMRON’s client had to stoop to take a shower.  The cast iron plumbing and knob and tube electrical wiring was antiquated and hazardous, and the rickety support beams consisted of odds and ends nailed together.

AMRON began by gutting the bathroom ceiling, walls, and floor; tore out the tiles, plumbing, electrical wires, and jerry-rigged beams.

AMRON’s electrician and plumber installed modern electrical and plumbing. AMRON’s carpenter installed up-to-code beams to reinforce the building’s structural integrity. The interior walls were also replaced.

AMRON’s tiler laid marble tile throughout, including a herringbone, marble tile pattern on the bathroom floor. The detailing is simply elegant!

The results: a light, airy open space, allowing fresh air and exterior sunlight to shine through the vintage stain glass window and bathe the entire bath area!

Our client is well over 6’7″. By gutting the bathroom and getting rid of all the outdated plumbing in the ceiling, AMRON picked up much needed, additional space: now our client can stand tall when taking a shower! Note, the smooth plaster ceiling and recessed lighting.

Take a peek at our tiler’s beautiful, inlaid tile, shower shelving.

AMRON added custom built cabinets & countertops to complete the bathroom.


“We’ve worked with AMRON on several projects including bathroom remodels, plumbing replacement, deck rebuild, structural work and more. We couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience. Bob and his team are professional, so kind, so hardworking and are perfectionists. The client is #1. They stand behind their work and aren’t happy unless the client is. We wouldn’t work with anyone else.”

AMRON – Your Earthquake Brace & Bolt Contractor

By | Concrete & Retrofitting, Earthquake Brace & Bolt, earthquake retrofit, FEMA, Remodel, Residential, residential construction

Did you know that your home may be eligible to receive up to $3000.00 for Earthquake Retrofit?  The California Earthquake Brace & Bolt (EBB) program is encouraging home owners with older homes to get their homes retrofitted by providing financial assistance to homeowners in selected zip code neighborhoods.

The consequences of an improper earthquake retrofit or of not strengthening an older home can be devastating.  More than 1.2 million houses in high-hazard areas are particularly vulnerable to earthquakes because of the type of construction.  These homes were typically built before 1979, wood-framed with a raised foundation and have a cripple wall in the crawl space under the house.

In an EBB retrofit, the cripple wall is strengthened with bracing and bolting or with bolting only, depending on the house foundation. With bracing, plywood is added to the cripple walls to strengthen them and to help prevent the home from collapsing.  With bolting, anchor bolts are added in the crawl space to help prevent the home from sliding.

Eligible homeowners can apply for retrofit funding from January 23 – February 23, 2018, at  As a FEMA trained, registered, and participating EBB general contractor, AMRON is at your service to assist you with the application process and to answer your questions. Please call AMRON at 310-384-2042.
