5209 Residence

Back in November we did a mini design build project for this client. (http://www.rdmarchitecture.com/blog-whats-new/custom-gate.html) Since then we have added a fence to the gate since the dogs discovered they could break through the invisible fence through the plantings on either side. We carried the feel of the gate though to an undulating modular fence.  To merge the off-center entry with the centered circle drive we added a brick paver patio in between. The circular planter breaks up the patio...

324 Residence 5

Another long post with a bunch of updates, we'd rather make a long post and not string things along when progress is happening and there is cool stuff to see! There is a lot of exterior work to be done on the new and the existing. Much of the existing brick and stone around the entry wasn't in great shape and needed to be repaired and replaced. The big area is around that arch at the screen porch. The have...

5209 Residence 2

A quick update on the 5209 residence. All of the masonry work is complete and as you can see below they've got a pretty good start on the new entry piece. The grade at the back of the wall will be lifted quite a bit more and then feathered out to the middle of the yard. There is some backfill to do still around the drive but for the most part it is done! Another view of the new...

1232 Residence Update 5

Things are moving along still over at 1232. Interior demolition is pretty much complete and one of the upset LVLs are in. In the photo to the right you can see everything has been removed except the walls around the stairs to the basment. The sloped portion will be concealed in a built-in cabinet/ fold-down desk. The walls visible to the right of the right image are temporary and existing walls that will remain in place until the second upset...

1232 Residence Update 4

Just a quick update today, if you want to see more you can check out the Facebook Gallery here.  Below is a before and after shot of the East side of the addition. You can see the metal mesh is in and the metal corners at the pilaster. All the doors and windows are in and trimmed out on the exterior. As of yesterday it seems like fall has started so we are now in a race with the elements...

1232 Residence Update 3

Making quick progress on the 1232 Residence, framing is getting close to complete, stucco starts next week. It is starting to take shape. In order to keep the homeowners in the kitchen as long as possible a temporary wall has been erected until all the exterior work is done to the point that the expanded family room is weather tight. With doors and windows going in it looks like that point isn't all that far away. ...

1232 Residence

A quick update on this project, the floor slab is in and the brick corners are in and look great. Demolition is starting on the house, removing the bumpout at the kitchen to put in the new structural members that will span that new much larger opening. The mason, Rick Roos and Greg from Hurst Construction discuss the new planters that will be added at the screen porch and adjacent to the garage. We just got a project album...
