For this blog, we take a peek into condo living at the Independent Austin downtown. This condo came with the standard selections, but the owners wanted to improve upon these selections in numerous ways.

The overall scope of work for Skelly Build included installing new kitchen countertops, a new live edge dining room piece, adding electrical and custom millwork throughout, gutting the master bathroom, and reconfiguring a new closet + laundry layout for added closet space. Courtney Blanton curated the selections.

The condo kitchen basic finishes were upgraded with custom cabinetry, new countertops, a live edge finish dining space, and upgraded lighting and electrical outlets.The condo kitchen basic finishes were upgraded with custom cabinetry, new countertops, a live edge finish dining space, and upgraded lighting and electrical outlets.

MASTER BATHROOM

We gutted the master bathroom and rebuilt it by installing large format tiles on the shower + tub surround. All of the plumbing fixtures were replaced with brass to pop against the black and the bathroom countertops were replaced to match the kitchen. A special feature in this bathroom is heated floors for an extra luxury.canva master bathroom independent.pngCLOSET + LAUNDRY ROOM

Our favorite part of this renovation was combining the laundry room with the closet. Our clients felt that the laundry room had wasted space and the closet could benefit from additional square footage; so, voila! We opened the space up and the laundry is now hidden in the closet, making it extra convenient to do laundry! Additionally, a custom closet was fabricated out of rift sawn white oak and loads of additional storage.

Condo’s typically lack storage, but not this one after we got our hands on it! We added two storage units in the entryway, adjacent to beautiful marbled wallpaper. A TV built in was also fabricated, as well as a desk station in the guest room, drawers in the guest closet and most notably the master closet system. Storage systems make such a difference in condos.

For additional function the kitchen drawers and cabinets were decked out with added inserts like a trash can pull out, pantry pull out systems, pot + pan holders, tray dividers, etc. Ensuring every square foot is important in condos especially!From L to R clockwise: TV stand with built in storage; one of two storage units in the entryway with marbled wallpaper; built in storage inserts for the kitchen, add desk station (with a beautiful view!) in the guest bedroom.From L to R clockwise: TV stand with built in storage; one of two storage units in the entryway with marbled wallpaper; built in storage inserts for the kitchen, add desk station (with a beautiful view!) in the guest bedroom.

Post renovation, this condo is now fully maximized for functionality and storage, with custom finishes that would make any homeowner proud. The only part of this condo that didn’t need any renovation was the beautiful view!009-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 009_9019836.jpg040-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 041_9019990.jpg041-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 042_9019993.jpg031-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 032_9019892.jpg038-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 039_9019983.jpg022-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 023_9019867.jpg039-350462-301 West Ave Unit 2806 040_9019987.jpg
