2019 Residence-Phase 2-4

A glare-filled picture but paint and trim are all done and it looks great. We also added some width and an overhang to the existing dormers to bring them into scale with the rest of the house and replaced the existing siding, windows and trim. A view of the rear of the house. Trim and siding is wrapped up. Just a little bit left. A finished shot of the upstairs bedroom. The clients did hand-drawn linework on the walls and picked a...

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 – 3

Another update over at 2019. Siding and exterior trim is on and we're just waiting for paint. The interior is as well. With the fireplace gone the space opened up but now that the walls and floors are continuous it finally seems like one large space. This view is looking toward what will be a built-in entertainment center and bench. Another view of the new family room, looking toward the new door and window. Currently this leads to...

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...

6109 Residence Update 3

Another update on the "cathedral". The exterior shingles are done and the trim is done. Interior foam is done and the wall insulation is also done. The tabs for the new steel tie rods are ready to go. Sheetrock should be going in soon but until there is a complicated little section of roof that needs some attention. We'll have some more pictures coming up soon. Stay tuned! ...

1232 Residence – Photos

Back in September this kitchen was featured in an article in Kansas City Homes & Gardens (take a look) and while we were out there talking with the writer and catching up with the clients we had the photographer, Matt Kocourek,  shoot a couple more pictures for us to round out the documentation of the project. We think it is some good architecture and the clients really love the new spaces, so take a look.  Thanks...

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...

Belvedere Update 26

Another Belvedere post! We are now into the finished stuff. The stone front porch with brick edge is done as is the water element next to it. There is some beautiful stone work just on these two parts and they make a great introduction to the house. The stone fireplace install continues. The hardest part is done. The main mantel is one large piece and weighs around 1800 lbs. It was rolled into place using rigging and a cart...

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...
