Pascal

Pascal Lecoq, Artisan

Pascal is the sole proprietor, creative designer, and tenacious muscle behind every project you see here. After completing his studies in computer electronics in France, he came to the United States to study English. Just as his student visa was due to expire he won the lottery, specifically, the US Green Card lottery. Equipped with nothing more than legal status, artistic passion, and boundless energy – Lecoq Construction & Design was born.

Working as a painter and general handyman, Pascal refined his craft. New construction, repair and restoration, remodeling – he eagerly accepted any challenge presented by a client. He soon built a reputation for excellent execution and painstaking attention to detail. Pascal takes a lot of pride in restoring and improving existing homes. His talents are best showcased when thoroughly modernizing kitchens and bathrooms while maintaining the original integrity of the home.

Pascal’s esthetic is a unique interpretation of classic materials. In his sensible French way he values high quality materials, durable construction techniques, and energy efficiency. He puts beauty and functionality into every project. He thinks about all the details of living in and enjoying your home – space-saving room layouts, ingenious showers that keep water where it should be and minimize mold or water damage, built-in storage, abundant outlets, and flexible lighting installations to set the right mood for your room in any situation.

His designs feature a lot of natural stone and hardwoods. He understands how to properly install and finish these materials to showcase their natural beauty and ensure lasting durability. Pascal is a gifted tile installer. Glass, ceramic and porcelain tiles – back splashes, counter-tops, floors and showers – tile is one of his best mediums.

Pascal is a dreamer and a tinkerer. Automotive repair, electronics, photography, sailing, baking, he is keen to learn a new skill or embark on an adventure. He spends a lot of time researching and experimenting with new construction materials and practicing new techniques as he improves his own home. He lives for remodeling “nightmares” and new opportunities to unleash his creativity on a problem.

Square, angular chrome fixtures are used throughout the design

Marble Shower Pillar

Pictures do not really convey the sense of awe that the 9 foot tall, water-shooting shower pillar inspires. Having lived with the idea of the “giant shower pillar” from the initial sketches until the final installation of this 400+ pound monster, I continue to be amazed at the creative mind that dreamed up this concept and the very special clients that liked the idea enough and allowed our artists vision to be erected in their home.

The triangular pillar performs several functions in this design. The imposing wide, dark polished base of the triangle anchors the perimeter of this spacious shower. And, in a feat of remarkable plumbing and electrical engineering, this smooth, sleek beast of an obelisk also houses all of the pipes to feed four water valves and the bulk of the wiring to control the lighting throughout the bathroom.

Behold the design and execution miracle that is the shower pillar.

Custom Gazebo, Benches, and Planters

Ground level deck, approximately 1000 square feet, plus 17′ by 17′ foot gazebo with vaulted ceiling constructed of pressure treated lumber. Custom benches and planters surround the perimeter of the deck.  Pressure treated lumber was stained after installation.

Brighton Deck

Brighton, MI – June 2014

First deck project in Michigan and first Trex deck for the 2014 season. This project involved removing the existing 20+ year old pressure treated lumber decks, railing and stairs. The existing frame was then re-enforced with new pressure treated joists to provide added strength and stability. The new Trex installation featured a combination of Rope Swing Tree House and Fire Pit Trex deck boards, fascia and railings which beautifully complimented the existing brick exterior of the home.

This project featured two decks – one 10′ x 14′ deck off the master bedroom. The second deck – approximately 10′ x 15′ accessible from the kitchen with stairs for easy access to the backyard pool. Not only were both decks replaced with strong, beautiful, composite materials with a 25 year warranty against fading and staining.
