Handrail Fitting

Last-Minute Fitting We just posted some images of this project, but we were out there for the test fitting and adjustment of the guard rail and hand rail and we're excited about how great it looks. It will be powder-coated to match the brackets so any adjustments, drilling or welding have to be done now. It is like a dress fitting for a building the week before the big event. That's Brian of Hurst Construction up there adjusting the upper end of the...

Sun Room Addition

Sun Room and Backyard Transformation (sneak preview) You may have seen this project in process if you've been keeping up with the RDM Facebook page. As it nears completion we're getting excited about the way it is taking shape. A relatively simple project but its all in the details. RDM has teamed up with Hurst Construction again and they are doing some beautiful work with the cypress cladding and ipe sunscreen and deck. The project should be wrapping up in the next...

Belvedere Concrete

[gallery link="file" size="medium" ids="837,836,838"] The form work for the remainder of the concrete at Belvedere is ready and concrete should be poured this week. The forms themselves are beautiful in an industrial sort of way and a sharp contrast to the natural landscape beyond and the crisp finished concrete around it. We'll post some pictures as soon as the forms come off. Excavation and concrete work are going to be finished soon and then the house starts to really become three dimensional....

10 November 2010 Another Lovely Fall Day & Yardwork The fall has been wonderful but winter is on its way. Time for cleaning out of gutters and raking of leaves and other seasonal chores. On the plus side this includes climbing around on the roof, leaf blowers, chainsaws and other fun things. We got a lot done while Cooper supervised and barked at random things. It was great to get away from the computer screen for...

Belvedere Excavation

08 November 2010 Excavation continues at Lake Quivira: A great deal of work has been done already as you can see from the photos below and its possible now to get a feeling for where each level of the house will eventually sit. Having removed the loose rock and soil, the work now consists of breaking free and dragging out car-sized boulders. Not an easy task but it continues to move along on schedule....

Belvedere Groundbreaking

03 November 2010 Groundbreaking Out By The Lake A residential project at Lake Quivira dubbed "Belvedere" kicked off with an informal groundbreaking ceremony that was quickly followed up with some more serious excavation on this steep forested site. The steep site, which affords some of the most incredible views of the lake, is made up of a series of limestone shelves and will require some extensive and creative excavation. The work is in progress now and going smoothly, check back...
