6109 Residence

Framing is done! This is a great space, we've been referring to it as the "cathedral" and we can't wait to see it with drywall. Even from the exterior it is an imposing structure. Siding and trim. This is really the only spot from the front of the house where you can tell anything has been added. Cedar siding looks so great when it is first installed. Great little project and we're excited to see it...

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...

This project has been going for a while but for some reason we haven't gotten around to a post about it. In the next week or so I'll get you caught up to whats going on now. Here we go! This is the house. Typical of the style of a lot of houses in the Waldo and Brookside area with steep roof pitches and multiple intersecting planes and brick and stucco. The house, like many built around that time...

Siding and trim are up. Looking pretty great. The addition certainly defines the entry and adds a focal point to the house. The trim panel stands out nicely already but once painted the accent color it is going to really pop.  None of the siding has been painted yet so you can really see the difference between the siding and the metal corners. These metal pieces finish off the corners and replace the historic battons  This leads to...

We are at that point in the project where things seem to slow down. Electrical and plumbing is moving along but not a whole lot changing from the exterior. The only exciting news is the new window installation. Along with the windows there is also the skylights. For the first time you can see why we really wanted to add the pair of skylights over the stair to the second floor. Not only does it let a lot of...

Forgot about the slab! Here is it, the contractor did a great job, nice smooth clean slab.The two steps bring you up to the first floor elevation. The new door from the exterior will also enter at this elevation. Framing is underway! The garage is starting to take shape. And here it is framed. There were some interesting challenges in connecting to the existing house. In order to clear the garage roof we changed the slope of the...

The last post covered some of the variance process, now we can get into the project a little more. Below is the same rendering. The biggest change to the exterior of the house is this addition that is made up of two garage bays with storage and the expansion of an existing bedroom above. We felt it was important to break the mass of the garage down from the street side. Not only does this make it more pedestrian scaled but...

1232 Residence Update 11

Another RDM kitchen project wrapped up last month. This one very different from the last post below in style but it turned out great and has some pretty cool things going on. The cabinets are traditional in style and finished with a simple off-white paint. We were limited by an existing dining room wall and the stair to the basement so we had to work within the existing shell. We made some changes to get an additional couple feet of...
