Erik Huedepohl, owner of Airik Construction has been very busy in Fair Oaks Ranch in the last few years. A resident there himself, he creates fabulous living spaces within beautiful homes throughout the neighborhoods. A former professional motocross racer, Erik raced as an amateur at the age of 12 and was on the professional circuit at the age of 15. After injuries slowed him down, he found his calling in the construction industry. Erik formed Airik Construction in 2012 and specializes in kitchen and bath designs, flooring, custom cabinetry and counters. Check out the website: http://Airikconstruction.com/.

Erik showed me two recently finished projects. The O’Connors started with renovating their kitchen and a downstairs bath along with replacing all the carpet downstairs with wood flooring that is popular now. The existing bath’s tub, shower and vanity cabinets were demolished and wallpaper removed. A new glass shower and deep tub were installed along with white double sink vanity and cabinets. A new barn door system with toilet entry was installed.

In the kitchen, only the existing appliances remain. The dark cabinets in the kitchen were replaced with white Shaker style cabinets and countertops were replaced with a white quartz. The wallpaper was removed and a textured finish was painted. A peninsula bar and pony wall were removed to open up the space into the living area. A second set of upper cabinets have Flemish glass doors. The kitchen island was replaced with the appliances built in one side with room for chairs on the other.

The Gandy’s home, also in Fair Oaks Ranch, got a total redesign. Cabinets, tubs, tile flooring, countertops, sinks, and vanities were demolished. Picture windows were added above the new granite composite sink as well as quartz countertops and Shaker style cabinetry and drawers. A wall was removed to open up the kitchen space to accommodate two islands and enlarging the seating area – perfect for entertaining .

Erik built a new double sink vanity Shaker style cabinet in the master suite. New granite counters and sinks were installed. A large closet was built into the master bath from the bedroom. Sound barriers were installed on the new closet walls and new closet shelving was added. A Jack & Jill bath was also renovated with new tile floors and new granite counters.

All the interior walls, ceilings, doors and trim inside the home were painted. All existing Saltillo flooring was saved with new hardwood floors in the master suite and new tile floors in the Jack & Jill bath and powder room. All plumbing fixtures were fixed or replaced. Existing electrical switches and outlets became white toggle style. The hearth room fireplace was framed and stucco finished. Shelving was added to the garage. The exterior of the home (stucco, trim, doors, garage doors) were painted.

When I admired the modern décor, I learned that Pamela Gandy is Erik’s aunt and is an interior decorator. She partners with Erik in his remodel and construction projects.
