Modern Home Builder - Winter 2018 - 33
Salt Point Services transformed a building's old bank vault into the Relo Solution
Group's IT room during an office remodel.
Another of Salt Point Service's extraordinary remodeling projects
involved a commercial office building for Relo Solutions Group in
Fayetteville, N.Y. Completed earlier this year, the large rehab project featured a modern open floor plan with lots of space, large windows and an interesting spin on industrial tube lighting - creating
an urban feel with a mixture of wooden floors and brick paneling.
"The designer came up with some really great designs," Stratton
says. "One of the coolest features is the help desk. It grows all the
way into the ceiling into what looks like a cloud."
Another interesting design element of the office building is its
IT room. It rests inside an old bank vault, as the building used to
be a bank. Salt Point Services kept the vault but gave it a modern
spin with stainless steel doors and a glass wall that connects the IT
team to the rest of the office area.
Although Stratton and France both enjoy remodeling, they envision the company heading into more new construction work. They
have recently acquired several lots of land that they plan to develop.
"That will be in the near future," France says. "I think it's important
to continually change as a company. If you're not changing, you're
not growing and you're not healthy if you're not growing." )

HOUSE ON THE LAKE
Remodeling homes is a passion for Stratton and France. It's also the
largest chunk of their business. One of their most unique projects
encompassed remodeling a 4,500-square-foot home in the Salt
Point area about two years ago. The high-end job had the word
custom written all over it.
"We remodeled the whole thing," Stratton says. "There was
nothing cookie-cutter about it. We had a butler's pantry with black
walnut grid flooring and every door was a custom-made. It was
very unique and it turned out beautiful."
Aside from custom doors, the library had custom wood ceilings
and paneling. The home's kitchen also featured custom flooring
and counter tops. The main living room boasted a large skylight
with wraparound windows and an open fireplace.
The project was especially exciting for Stratton and France because the home's owners gave Salt Point Services a lot of creative
freedom. "Since we didn't have set plans, we made changes as
needed," Stratton says. "The exciting part was incorporating new
ideas as we went along."
The formal living room also featured custom paneling, a gas
fireplace and a grand wooden fireplace. "Every room had some
unique design feature in it," France adds.
