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...

5002 Residence Update

If you've driven down Wornall into the plaza you might have seen this. The screen wall from the exterior is pretty much done and looks great. A closer view. This was the first time we've worked with this material, DassoXTR, and our first impressions are good. It is a great alternative to Ipe, though it is a little more expensive, it is actually more dense and a lot straighter. The downside is that is only comes in 6'...

5002 Residence

After taking a short rest from the completion of a new curved stair case in the living room (see previous posts under New Stair Install) the clients have decided to take on a new project - the exterior deck. Demolition found some unwelcome though not entirely unexpected things. The existing structure had some significant rot throughout which we suspected might be the case. We didn't realize that the existing deck wasn't really anchored to the ground and the structural support were...

Deck + _ 3

The outdoor kitchen was expanded during construction, adding the leg to the straight run to give them a little more space for cooking and seating. The stucco and the cut stone top are in. Looks awesome. A shot of the large arch, now in stucco as well as the columns. The deck and the trim are mostly installed and the rail is the next major part. With the dry-below system we are able to have a finished ceiling...

Deck + _ 2

Things are moving quickly on this project. The main roof and skylights are up and it is looking amazing. Adding a screen or covered porch can cut off a lot of natural light from your living space. We always suggest strongly that at least one skylight is added to restore that natural light. This particular client agreed and we ended up with some large skylights that still allow a view of the sky from the living room windows. ...

New Project – Deck +

A quick intro to a new project we've got under construction now. An existing and poorly constructed composite deck wasn't large enough and didn't fit the lifestyle of the current homeowners. (It looks a lot nicer in the photos, trust us) Below is a pair of renderings we prepared that show pretty much where we ended up. Not only is the deck larger but a large portion of it is covered by a conventional roof and with a polycarbonate...
