New Project Introduction
Another RDM project starts construction!
Welcome to the 1232 Residence! We are removing an existing screen porch and expanding the family room and adding a fireplace and a screen porch. We are also remodeling the kitchen and making some changes to an upstairs exercise room. The rear of the house is oriented around a very large brick paver patio that Rick designed for them back in the 80’s. Our addition plays off the series of brick planters and uses that form to anchor the new screen porch. We will have some more images as things move along but in the existing photo below on the left you can see the existing, to the right is the rendering of the new.
Here are some construction photos to get everyone caught up. Hurst Construction is doing this project for us as well. Below is Carlos, one of Ian’s guys digging the cleanest hand dug trench footing that you will ever see. This is the outside wall of the new butlers’s pantry. They were able to preserve the portion of the existing patio due to his careful cutting and digging. To the right is the poured footing and stem wall already done!
And finally a larger view showing the house with the porch removed to the left and to the right the trench footing is in and the stem wall and some of the fill is completed. The rebar sticking up will tie the stem wall to the floor slab which will be poured later. Work has also started on the exercise room. We are removing the door, adding an window and relocating an existing door to the other side of the room. It will all become clear soon. Exciting!
