Aberdeen House –

Another RDM Architecture + Hurst Construction project is well under way, in fact we're almost done with electrical and plumbing rough in on the first half of the project but have been busy and haven't had a chance to put together a post yet so this is going to the the first of a couple to catch up to where things are. The existing house was designed by Morton Payne in the 60's and had survived pretty unchanged since then....

2019 Residence – Phase 2

Phase 2 begins! (Honestly we're a little behind on posts for this project so we're going to catch up quickly) This was a project we finished up the first phase a couple years ago. We loved the way it turned out. We added a bit of space on the first floor but the majority of the work was in the master bedroom on the second floor. This phase concentrates on the first floor and opening it up in a...

6109 Residence Update 5

It is done! Ok from this view it doesn't look any different from the last time other than the grass but keep scrolling!  The final coat of paint is on and the light fixtures installed. The aluminum and glass overhead doors are installed and hooked up. We went with a jackshaft operator in order to keep the space as open as possible and it also reduces the noise significantly. They were able to get a great finish on the...

5400 Residence

We wrapped up this project a couple months ago and construction is moving along. The existing shed addition was removed and we are adding a new shop space to the existing garage. This addition will also allow more convenient access to the existing garage attic. The project includes a new arbor that matches one added on the opposite side of the house as part of a previous RDM project. Here is the existing rear of the house. The shed...

6109 Residence Update 4

We're almost there! The new drive is in. We were able to expand it enough to comfortable have two cars side by side without negatively affecting the existing tree. The house from the front doesn't look very different, though we did put in a new post and repair ther trim there. As you move around the side you can really see the length of the addition. We don't think it really looks like a garage though, especially with all...

New Project ! 2019 Residence

We finished up the design work on this project about a year ago but construction is just now starting. Below is a photo of the existing house. It is a typical Prairie Village house that we are going to transform inside and out. By adding a small first floor addition we create a platform for a large addition on the upper floor for a new master bedroom. The additional first floor space allows for the extension of the overhang...

324 Residence Complete!

Most people think that moving walls is a big deal even when it isn’t. These clients were not those people. There is hardly a wall that wasn’t moved, modified or removed altogether as we turned a cramped and divided starter house with an illegal car port into an open, bright and comfortable home with a large 2 car garage. Having reluctantly moved to the suburbs 22 years ago, they were ready to downsize and eager to get back to sights...

5400 Residence 3

Catching up with this project in a couple posts. Below is a shot of the building framed. We added 2 skylights  to bring even more natural lights into the space. Here is an exterior shot. We used a different wall system on this project to make it the tightest and most efficient space as was feasible for an addition. Once framed and sheathed we added a layer of rigid foam on the exterior. Not only does this add an...

2019 Residence 3

Time for another up update! Paint is done and looks fantastic. This project is very close to complete. The sidewalk has been laid out on site and should be going in very soon and then we can get the front yard put back together. In addition the other drive will be demolished and the sidewalk replaced. This isn't a great photo but is a very clear description of what was added on the first floor. You can clearly see...
