Feature Project


Oceanside Animal Hospital

  Oceanside Vet Clinic


 Dr. Corey Blake had worked for a number of Veterinary clinics over the past ten years before she decided to begin her own practice. Having grown up in Sandwich, Ma, it seemed like a logical place to launch her new business. The perfect location was found but was far from move in ready and would need some serious renovations.


We collaborated closely with Dr. Blake, her Veterinary consultants and Architect Jennifer Drain to work out all of the details of the remodel to ensure the space was well laid out and equipped to service her patients and give them the best level of care. Specifically Dr.Blake wanted to incorporate an open,  radial floor plan that allowed for maximum visibility of all areas from most vantage points in the hospital.  Hallways were kept to a minimum to maximize usable space and glass vision panels were installed to increase visibility as planned. 


Eric was able to advise Dr. Blake on her options to stay within her budget and accomplish all of her objectives for the project.


Here is what the client had to say about their finished project:

Dr. Corey Blake
 " Working with the group at Thorson Restoration was an excellent experience.  I felt well informed of the timeline, progress of the project, and am extremely happy with the finished product.  


Eric worked closely with our architect Jennifer Drain and together they were able to create a space that exceeds our expectations.  Eric and his team did an amazing job in a short time frame and I was very impressed with the coordination of subcontractors and attention to detail that the whole team showed.  


I am thrilled to be in the new hospital and to be able to provide high quality medicine in such a functional and beautiful setting.  We constantly get compliments on the hospital and the design.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Thorson Restoration to anyone in need of construction assistance."

What's the Cost?



 If you are trying to budget for your latest remodel but have no idea what a project like yours will cost, you are not alone.

Cost is likely one of the most thought about aspects of a remodel. It also happens to be one of the most common driving factors of a remodel as well, it can sometimes determine the scale of the remodel, the type of finishes and even when you will be able to begin your remodel. Determining the cost is a big part of the planning phase and needs to be done early on. 
Every year Remodeling Magazine publishes the Cost vs. Value Report that compiles a list of the 35 most popular remodeling projects, their average costs and what you can expect to get as a return on your investment upon the sale of your home. Results are separated by project & region and can be compared to national averages as well. You can even see what the "high end" version of the project would cost, being that cost varies dependent upon the type of finishes and quality of materials used.
The 2013 Cost vs. Value Report is out and ready for viewing! Use this valuable tool before your next remodel, to help determine your budget and decide if the project you are considering is going to give you the increased home value you were hoping for.
