Custom Stair Install 2

The glass has arrived and the stair is bolted in place. Ian and his guys had to make some on-site modifications to make it fit but its in for good now. Below, Ian, Rick and Greg make the first ascent. There is a bit of fill and sanding left to do and the stringers will be painted to match the wall color and the treads and railing will be stained a mid to dark brown. We'll stop by and take...

Belvedere Update 6

Look at that view! Mike and Rick went out to the Belvedere site late last week to check up on progress. As you can see below the second floor decking is under way. Below left is standing near the future screened-in-porch, looking out over the firepit. Below right is standing on the balcony overlooking the great room, views of the lake abound. Below is the master bathroom framing. Standing in the great room, looking out over the upper...

Custom Stair Install

We've been working on this project for some time, and the stair is just one part of a whole series of projects in the same residence but for us this is certainly the most exciting at the moment. Designed in the late 70's by Alan Feingold Architects the living room, and really the entire house is full of 45 degree angles which come together in a large 2 story. At each end of the room glass doors and large windows...

Belvedere Framing

Framing is well underway out at the Belvedere site. The lower floor is framed and the sheathing is started, the floor above is in and framing will be starting up there soon. The project is moving right along. The site is starting to really green up, even with just the existing trees and plantings in there its difficult to get an overall shot of the construction from the road below. Below you can see the block shelf built up from the footing,...

Theres a little work left here and there and the grading and plantings. With the new stone wall and concrete walk the drainage problems are solved for good and the client is happy. Stay tuned for the final pictures. ...

Belvedere Concrete II

Formwork for the upper foundation walls is stripped! Its a big day on the Belvedere site, the spray water proofing (the black in the photo below) has been applied and the protective foundation board applied over that. All that is left is a little cleanup and a lot of backfill and the foundation part of the project will be largely complete. A little bit closer...

Belvedere Update 1

We took an office trip out to check on the progress at the Beveldere site. You can tell even now that the views are going to be spectacular from both the upper and lower patio. There is more excavation to come yet but the form of the house is slowly rising from the ground. To the right is the entrance to the lower garage, the curving wall beyond is the lower patio, past that and up the stepped wall is the...

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....
