Mark from TraVek Inc

Mark has been with TraVek since 2016, and came with 31 years of building and home remodeling experience. During his career he has worked as an electrician, roofer, cabinet installer, plumber, framer, and flooring, so he is very familiar with every facet of remodeling. He was a licensed contractor in California for 15 years before moving to Arizona.

Mark is a Production Manager , so his daily tasks include not only being the main point of communication during the project with our clients, but also the one who oversees to make sure the jobs are completed as smoothly as possible. If subcontractors are going out to the job, he schedules and oversees them. He also works alongside the Apprentice Carpenters to make sure jobs are completed according to Scope.

A part of his work that Mark likes is the variety of work. Every day there is something different to do. The most satisfying part of his work is working with the clients and making their dreams come true through the transformation of their homes, from the beginning to the completion of the projects.

During his spare time, Mark enjoys target shooting, traveling, paintball, hiking and the river.

    Sunken Dining Room Raised in Scottsdale

    Arched doorways, slanted rooflines, and sunken rooms were all the rage in the 1970s. We needed to give this home new life! We were able to raise the roof, bring up the sunken dining room, and open up the entryway to create a better flow in this home.

    As you can see before, these homeowners had a big need for better storage space! They had this narrow mudroom between their garage and kitchen that we were able to build cabinetry into that matched the kitchen just on the other side.

    This was a Santa Fe style home. The homeowners wanted to stay with the style of the home, yet make it more contemporary and open with white cabinetry in the kitchen.

    We removed the door and the peninsula. That allowed much more space to open up in the kitchen.

    Scottsdale Back Yard Remodel

    This is a back yard in North Scottsdale. We are lucky to live in such a climate where we can easily expand our living space into the great outdoors. When you look at the Before Photos, you will notice that space was not so inviting or attractive. What a change, a big WOW, and a really fun space now to entertain not only the family but also guests. It's like an oasis and a place to absorb beauty all around, and the best part is, it's right in their own back yard!

    Notice the louvered ceiling and misting systems. The misting systems are thanks to Mist America out of Scottsdale, AZ. The louvered ceiling is an excellent way to shelter from the burning sun in the summer and rain during the monsoon season. It can allow in as much or as little sun as wanted.

    Kitchen Remodel in Scottsdale

    You can hardly imagine this is the same kitchen! We opened up the wall into the living area to turn this claustrophobic kitchen into an open concept design. We also raised the entire roofline around these rooms to make everything more breathable. All the can lighting brightened up this space and moved away from the yellowish, fluorescent lighting of the original, 70s design.

    Nothing says a southwestern 70s look like a beehive fireplace and parquet flooring! The beehive setup created an awkward living area set up and served no use for this family.

    Carpet in the bathroom is something we will never understand! We did not change much in terms of layout, however we were able to take space from the walk in closet and expand the cramped stall shower into this beautiful, curbless walk-in.

     

    Shower floor tile is Bianco Carrara Penny Rounds which also accent the tub. Wall tile is a unique 3D White Twist.

    This master bathroom layout was all wrong! The vanity spaces were awkwardly divided and the lighting and wallpaper were dated. We brought the vanities together with this spacious, luxurious space while still providing the separate areas needed for the his and hers sides. Of course, the carpet had to go as well! High quality, StarMark Cabinetry with plenty of storage for all these homeowners could need.

    This is a repeat customer for us. We have loved getting to continue on the home improvement journey with them over the years. Here we were able to remove the load bearing but dated pillars and reinforce the beam to open up this living area. We also extended the flooring into the living space to connect throughout the home.

    We have been partnering with these homeowners over the years updated their home from the 70s. Why risk a smoke filled home when you can have a relaxing, ambient electric fireplace. We demoed the brick fireplace to build in the electric set up with a mantle to match the wood accents throughout the home.

    We had done a kitchen remodel for these homeowners at their previous home. Upon moving to their new home, they quickly saw the builder-grade quality of the cabinetry was not holding up even though the home had only been built a few years prior. They loved the giant island, but the dark, broken-down cabinets had to go. They are artistic people, so brightening the kitchen was important to them as well as the unique color touches. See how the hood vent matches the gorgeous island.

    The homeowner wanted a little pool house/casita for guests. He wanted it to be a simple, studio style. We designed this new build to match the existing home with an open, multi-functional room and darling full bathroom.

    It's easy to see how tunnel-like and dark this staircase was original. To add insult to injury, it was the first thing seen after walking in the front door. It blocked out so much of the home. We were able to open up space and illuminate the stairs! No more dark carpet and drywall railing. Instead a sleek, open, brighter feel.

    Once you entered this kitchen you were stuck! Only one way in and out! These types of kitchens make it difficult to have more than one person in the kitchen. The kitchen can be such a place of a family gathering with a few simple changes. Here we removed the horseshoe portion of the counter as well as opened up the wall to the game room. Just out of shot in the after the photo is the gorgeous and spacious island in Blueberry StarMark Cabinetry. Check out the full photo gallery to see more of this project!
