Renovation

New Shower from Stock Parts

Mayer Building Company booked a small shower improvement. As we prepared to present ceramic selections to the owner, we remembered that we had 65sf of brushed ceramic 12x12s, 20sf of 4×4 stone tiles, two bags of adhesive and some ready mix concrete in storage. The two tiles matched well and we installed them. We delivered a great looking greenish shower and saved the client some green of his own.

510 Esplanade

In April 2012, Mayer Building Company commenced a major overhaul of the 4-story 1840s masonry townhouse (read mansion). Ten months later, one of the finest residences in the French Quarter emerged. This home, which had once been converted into four condos or apartments, is now re-establised as a single family home in granduer and panache. Above the gas lanterns, two galleries, dressed in iron lace, catch river breezes and views well into the Marigny/ Bywater. The home, designed with eloborate and ornate finishes, Victorian in some places, Louis XIV in others is a study in custom craftsmanship and artisan applications. 510 Esplanade also contains state-of-the-art equipment blended into its style for super-ergonomics in the kitchen, baths, palors and recreation areas.
